Which retailer did you buy it from and do any of our sponsors sell it? I would like to buy one !

I am so glad I bought it - it works fabulously everytime, especially with some of the more intricate Memory Box dies, they cut so cleanly, the cut outs simply fall out of the die now!! I cannot understand why the manufacturers are not promoting this indispensible aid to die cutting, I had never heard of it until Sunday!

Hey - I should have gone on commission !!!!! If none of our sponsers do one, I think you can get one at Oyster stamps, sorry I cannot remember the retailers stand I bought from, not someone I recognised but I will ask my friend in case she remembers.

I think it's a Cheery Lynn product so if you go to that section you will see it.
