In love with my Cuttlebug!

More and more I am amazed at what the scrapbooking industry is coming up with these days that it's hard to keep up with so many neat devices and machines out there for us paper crafters and devoted scrapbookers! But when I finally got my hands on my very own Cuttlebug, I couldn't wait to see what I could come up with!

Before I had purchased my own Cuttlebug, I had been taking turns using my friends' Sandra & Gloria's Cuttlebug. Without their help, I wouldn't have been able to add this special touch to make my friend's baby shower invitations.

Another opportunity came knocking when my cousin's sister-in law asked me to make her father's Christmas theme birthday invitations. She shared her vision of what she wanted them to look like and went from there! I'm happy to say that she was pleased with the design-I hope you are too. Can't wait to see what else I come up with and what this little powerful thing can do! Plus, I've been taking advantage of every Cuttlebug sale at both Hobby Lobby and Michael's since I got it and have a pretty good inventory of embossing folders already....for now (hee, hee)!

Trick or Treat(s)!

When one of our Busy Bee members, Hilda, became an independent consultant for Stampin' Up, we were so excited to test out her Big Shot at our last crop. Sandra also happened to purchase one at the convention along with some incredible dies. She is making some awesome centerpiece decorations for her mother with them!  Needless to say, I was in love with it! You can do sooooo many things with it that the possibilities are endless! I hope to purchase one later on.....much later. =( The good thing is that we will be sharing dies with each other. I've already purchased some dies from Stampin' Up which happen to be compatible with my Cuttlebug. For now, that will have to do. And it works just as good! In the meantime, here are some treats I made for my co-workers at school using the Petal Cone and Pillow Box dies that Sandra purchased. I filled them up with some candy and voila! Aren't they amazing?!
