                    Hi and welcome. I do cards too but I'm afraid I don't use a die cutter. I've got to say though I've got a big smile on my face 'cos nettie spaghetti was my nickname at primary school , hehe...

                          Hi

                          Welcome to the forum, hope you enjoy it. I have a Big Shot die cutting machine and I absolutely love it! You can use almost any kind of dies in it so it's really versatile.

                              My top two favourite are the cricut and the cuttlebug.
                              The cricut is electronic and you can adjust the speed and pressure so you can cut paper or thin card. You can also adjust the size of the shapes you cut. It's about 250-300 pounds, the cartrides you buy to put in it are about 50 pounds. You can also buy software to link it to your computer so that you can re-design the shapes.

                              The cuttlebug is my fave though. It's manual, but not that hard to turn. It's about 55 pounds, it cuts and embosses paper and thin card. You can also use brass stencils and other brand dies in it. The dies and embossing folders start at about 4 pounds, they are simple but effective.

                              Everybody is different though! You should ask in your local craft shop if they have any display/demo machines that you could be shown or even have a go yourself!
