Just thought it was time to do some Chit Chatting and catch up with life around here... I have finally entered the Cuttlebug world. :)  This little baby came to live in our home today. Here are the folders I have... A 5"x7" small flowers one that came with the machine, and a Checkerboard 5"x7" one that came in the "Everyday" combo pack with 3 other A2 size folders - Window Panes, Pajama Bottoms, & Brickyard. The others I have are all A2 Swiss Dots, Seeing Spots, Divine Swirl, and Tiny Mosaic Texture which to me looks like alligator skin.

What is your favorite crafting toy right now? A new cartridge, embossing folder, inks, chalks, stamps, paper trimmer, Stickles, buttons, a new paper pack, rhinestones, ribbon, something else?  

I'd love to see some of your projects using the CUTTLEBUG to give me some ideas of how to use my new toy.  So let's make this a challenge, shall we?

My new toy right now that I am constantly playing with is my new Green Cricut Expression. I LOVE IT ! But I love my Cuttlebug to. Just posted my Card that I made for my little Grandson. Thought he would get a kick out of seeing a baby Dinosaur hatching out of an egg. I can not remember the name of the Embossing folder. I thought it worked well on the nest. Then I lightly brayered over it with brown Ink. I don't have my own blog. Hope to soon. :0)

Hi Janis,

It looks like I went a little crazy!! I just made a wonderful (if I do say so myself) scene card and liked it up. I embossed several layers and I think it adds so much depth!

Thanks for the challenge,
