A very exciting week ahead!

Hi Crafters
Thank you once again for all your support. I will be back on air this Wednesday with a fab Cuttlebug POTD.
Jinger will do the launch and the IW shows and I will be on C&C at 12pm and 3pm. So tune in it is a fab product.
I have to let you in on my other news too..... yesterday I brought a new addition into my family. His name is Pip and he is a beautiful puppy. If any of you remember the Sooty shows, then he looks just like Sweep. he is soooooo cute I will post a photo soon.

Will be back on air after Wednesday on the 17th August with HOTP, Stampavie Christmas and Jones Tones.

Hope you have a good week and let me know what you would like to see demo wise on the blog.

Take care

  1. Looking forward to the new Cuttlebug product! I love mine - it seems to find a way into every project!

    Demo-wise - well I'm really interested in scrapbooking at the moment so anything in that area will be gratefully received by me!!

  2. I would like to see some demos using the EK Success border punches. I don't have any as yet but I did use my one and only Martha Stewart border punch and managed to get a reasonable corner with it. I am planning on getting some of the EK Success punches but until then I will play with the MS punch to see what effects I can get other than just a straight line border.

    I really enjoy watching your shows, you're so enthusiastic and it's contagious! Especially the scrapbooking shows. I have 3 albums on the go but have only done about 3 pages in each over the past 5 years. I am determined now to do some more

  3. Hi Mel x
    Thanks for the warning about the POD shows x
    Will be watching/recording for sure x
    Still learning how to use mine x

    Enjoy little Pip - sure he will be a great addition to the family x

  4. Great blog i have only just found it and find it very interesting and infimative. welcome to little pip can't wait to see the photo's xx

  5. Hi Mel - I've got a question but couldn't find an email so I'll try here! I bought the new Cuttlebug All in One but am having real problems feeding the folder and the two B plates into the Cuttlebug. (I've resorted to using a No More Shims mat and a B plate - which works ok.)

    If I really persevere and stagger the B plates forward with A LOT of effort I can wind the sandwich through but it means the last 1/4 to 1/2 inch of the embossing area isn't covered by the B plates.

    I've decided to order some long B plates as I think that will help but was wondering if there is something I'm missing.


  6. Me again! Sorry - meant to include my email address with my question - just in case it is easier to reply that way. It is thingssoolikes at gmail dot com (with at and dot suitably replaced!) Thanks again!

  7. Me again - last time on this one! Re: my earlier query about the Cuttlebug All in One - a bit of research uncovered I had a faulty Master Folder. C&C have sent me a replacement and this one glides through easily. Hurrah!! :) Hope you are well. Cheers, Soo.
