I have a hard time making a card without using CB embossing folders! I have a card right now that's pretty much done, but the letters I cut with my Cricut look too plain! I have to pull them off and emboss them!

I love my CB. My only complaint would be I wish I could make a larger alphabet. The nice thing is that it take other dies too like Sizzix etc.

I love my CB. I have had it since the beginning of the year and have really enjoyed seeing the transformation of my layouts. I can't imagine scrapping without it.

I love using the small embossing folders and then mounting them on a scallop from the nestabilites. I will post pictures when I get a chance.

Me too, I just ordered two sets of the pendant dies Fleur de lis, and the renaissance hearts. I needed some silhouette stuff and DH said order the dies I wanted. The dies and Quickutz stuff was on sale. He is so sweet, I just got a ton of dies before the new ones came out. I really want the new snow flakes but I just got snow flake wonders and I don't know how many snow flakes I really need.

LOVE the cuttlebug folders! I use mine in a Big Shot, though :(. Just couldnt buy another machine, when I had one that worked.

Here is a video I just did on using the cuttlebug embossing folders, to do a layered or a double emboss.

I talked my husband into buying me one on the last HSN scrapbook airing. It is due to arrive Thursday and I can't wait. I already have a Mickey Mouse folder I can't wait to use in it for our Disney pages.

I got my raspberry pink one from HSN back in May and I use it every chance I can get to emboss. Some of the things I have embossed with it are in my gallery.

(Even though I haven't been using it at all this year), I totally love my Cuttlebug!

(It was actually one of my first loves!)

I've actually been stocking up on new folders, so that I can start using it again! I'm planning on making some cards, as well as using certain others towards Christmas cards!



p.s. I have the green one, but the raspberry one you girls have mentioned just 'sounds' cute!

I love my CB:) It was a long slow process as I thought I was breaking it each time I used it. That cracking noise as the die goes thru scared me every time so I only used it for embossing. But now I know it's normal and I am cutting away! I have one small Spellbinder set and I am scouring the countryside LSS's for more. I love them!

As a newbie, I'l probably telling you something you've been doing for years, but I love cutting out numbers and letters in metallic cardstock with cuttlebug dies. They look like real metal and remind me of the brass address numbers people have on their houses.

yep! I like cutting glitter paper, foam and felt too You can cut all sorts of fun stuff like sandpaper, wax paper, vellum, cork, and fabric.

I wasn't sure what other material I could use in my Cuttlebug. I had wondered. Thank you for the info! I'll have to give it a try!
