Curious about leaf cuttings last night, I came across an article on the ICPS site about VFT leaf cuttings and how incredibly quick it is to get reasonable sized plants compared to from seed. Needless to say I really want to do this now so the question I have is when is the best time to take these leaf cuttings? Is it too late?

Any time when they're not dormant is ok, you'll get the best results in live Sphagnum moss.
