Do any of you wonderful ladies know where or if I can get hold of Guiding Sizzix dies?

I would at the least like to get hold of the trefoil/logo.

I've never seen one but thought someone might know where there were was hiding?

seen the cut out shapes on ebay for rainbows and brownies and they look REALLY GOOD (but not the actual cutter to cut them in first place)

if you did find them, please post on here how much you'd charge for "pre-cut" shapes as I'm sure you'd have a ready market!!!!!

Not seen a logo one before but I've got the body one and some clothes. I love it but haven't had it out for ages.

Ooh I didn't realise they did Rainbow/Brownie dies. I just wish they'd do Guide ones too. Any excuse to buy more dies!!!!

The ones I've seen the people have written the word Brownies on. It's just the generic clothes cut out in brown and yellow.

As everyone has said we just use bodies and clothing to make items of the correct colour.
You can get Dies made to order but I have no idea how much they cost.

This is the company who do them. I guess it would be cheaper if several people want the same design, rather like badges.

I can make enquiries if several people are interested.

What do you want?
How many?
Trousers, shorts,
Tshirt, sweatshirt,
I can oblige.
If you have the exact colour card its even better if not you would need to trust me to find the best I can.
Also you need to state if you want any ethnic skin colours

Yah :D

The SS Aqua colour would be great - hoody types or normal polos/shirts

Trousers - just plain 'Guiding' colours

(so something like the colours in my weemee :) )

A mixture of hair I guess, so short (like weemee) and longer in blonde and brown.
(not sure you could get my centenary hair? so may have to rethink that! but if you can that would be amazing! :D)

Mainly 'white' but don't mind some ethnic skin colours as well.

A dozen or so would be great (to get me started anyway! lol)

PM me with how much you would want to cover the cost of your card etc and your time :D

Thanks :D

Hair could be white and you colour it in. bear in mind that there are only a few hair styles to choose from. I only have 3-4 Girl styles. You may find it worth while looking at boys ones on ebay and asking for the correct one in plain white. There is one that I believe will suit!

No hoodies that I am aware of. It really is a case of using basic garments but putting them together so thy look correct. Eg I do a Gilet by cutting a tshirt in half and cutting the sleeves off!

I wont be able to do this instantly but I will do it.
First task is to find SS colour card as its nor my section.

Do prompt me if I forget. I am away on a big trip at Easter so may not be until after that.

Glad to hear someone is scrapping the centenary. I am full of good intentions but have not stared yet.

I think they all look great!

looked at the link though, and the "original" kit needed is expensive, without adding the cost of each "die"

Does anyone know if the new dies are compatible with the old red machine? I've got the original and I don't see a need to buy a new one but they are only making the new type of dies now.

All the new ones say that they fit the new machines but I find it confusing too. I have the old colour coded dies for the original red sizzix machine but they have all changed now, so I want to buy more dies and not sure if the new ones will fit. All I know is that anything called 'big' won't fit. So very confusing!
