Pretty in green, my steady lover (Cuttlebug)

If I was to say I've been in luv with this little machine will be an understatement. I've been completely besotted with this little machine..
So besotted that we have a blog devoted just to this machine.. Cuttlebugchallenge.blogspot.

The new line is so sleek and so kewl just like a little purse, but the best part is it's lighter and have it's own onboard storage for the handle..
Here are some pics and a video of me demoing it at CHA at the Provo Craft booth..

Here is a simple card yet elegant.

I love embossing and use my cuttlebug folders on almost every project. What would we do without them?

Great cards, I also love my cuttlebug but don't use it anywhere near as much as I should. I am always making something and after I have put it together think 'I should cuttled this or that' lol, I am going to move it closer to me to remind me!

Visiting from Support blog for moms of boys -- my favorite (although all are fabulous) is the birthday card. So cute!

Jennifer said...

I don't have the new (sleeker) one, but I love my Cuttlebug just the same!!! :) And I am addicted to the embossing folders! I bought it just to emboss, but I love to use it for my Nesties, too! It is definitely one of the top 3 crafting items that I can't live without...

Thanks for sharing your menu and the shopping tips!
