Cuttlebugging long strips

Cut a strip of patterned paper the length of the cardstock.

Fold the strip in half and then run it through the Cuttlebug. Yes one part will be raised and the other indented but the next step camouflages the difference.

Sand the patterned paper and this camouflages the difference in the bugged areas.

This scrapbook page is now ready to put photos etc on.

Recycled cards

Here is another card I have recycled. It looks better in real life. The Chrystallina Kindy Glitz looks green in this but in real life it looks silver.

Jessica's Cuttlebug Cards

Jessica made all these cards with me using the Cuttlebug and oil pastels and chalk. I put the cardstock through the Cuttlebug and jessica decorated them the way she wanted. We took them outside and sprayed them with hairspray so the chalk and crayon would not come off. We had a lot of fun.

Recycled Christmas Cards


Instead of throwing away those commercial cards, recycle them using the Cuttlebug and you have a new card to send the following year.
1. I cut off the front of the commercial card and bugged it. 
2. Then sanded it.
3. Attached some ribbon on the top with a bow.
4. Stick it down on a hand made card. I used almost an A3 piece of cardstock.
5.a sentiment to a piece of the off cut and pop it up on the card.
6. I have put Chrystallina Kindy Glitz on the baubles on the tree.

Blue and Green Swap for Cards-r-us.

I love using flower stamps and cutting them out and creasing them and inking them. Then layering them.

Margaret Ashby's Christmas Card

This is the lovely card Margaret Ashby sent me for Christmas. I love the texture and the colours.
