Anyone who knows me will know that I am not really into all the machines and gadgets getting released onto the scrapbooking market - it just seems too like everyone is trying to sell us something new every week. But, then along came the Cuttlebug. I tried and I tried to resist, but it was fruitless. This machine is very reasonably priced, and it does so much. It embosses, it cuts (including metal, chipboard, vinyl, felt and on and on and on .....) and it takes most of the other machine dies as well. I tried in with my Quickutz dies and it cuts through them like butter, 12 letters at a time!
Jodie at Scraptacular was one of the first shops in Australia to stock them, and I picked mine up last Friday. I had a play over the weekend and among other things made these cards using the new Scenic route and Basic Grey papers. The embossing is such a breeze and the images are so crisp. I love it.
I also did a layout using the gorgeous Stella Ruby BG papers, but that will have to wait until Thursday to post as it's for my March She competition layout at Scraptacular, so no peeking until March 1st! Don't forget you still have a few days to get your layout in for this month and be in the running for a $20 voucher - nice discount on the Cuttlebug maybe?
Bye for now,
