About Me

With the help of my friends, I co-ordinate "The Craft Group" which is a place for women to gather and do craft! We share a whole range of things, from craft to the small things that matter to us right up to understanding the whole meaning of life! I learn so much from everyone, I thought a blog would be the perfect way to record the memories! The "Plus..." is all about extra bits 'n pieces that I have found and would love to show you. Welcome to our Craft Group. Please feel free to say hi, leave a comment or become a follower! Enjoy!

Our Cuttlebug from Marion

We are very excited to have our very own "Cuttlebug" at The Craft Group!!!
Did we beg, borrow, steal or buy it?
No, Marion won it for us!

She was at the shop "Alice in Paperland" in Rydalmere, Sydney and saw they were running a competition for someone to win a Cuttlebug. Marion had to write down why she wanted to win it. Well, she has a Cuttlebug machine and dies of her own which she brings along every week to share with other ladies at The Craft Group. She explained that we are a non profit, community group. She also told them that because of health problems, it is really hard for her to bring the equipment each week. It isn't all that light when you have a good collection of dies! Well, we are very thankful... and Marion's back is very thankful that she won it :)

We will slowly start up a collection of dies and embossing folders ourselves and hopefully all the ladies have a play with it and enjoy creating some beautiful scrapbook pages and cards.

This following video clip is a short, straight to the point guide by an Aussie (yay) on how to cut and emboss using the "Cuttlebug". Too easy!

This following clip shows how you can emboss other things such as transparencies  or ribbon.

I hope you all enjoy sharing the Cuttle Big at The Craft Group ladies! A BIG thanks again to Marion for winning it for us and for "Alice in Paperland" for running the competition!

Alice in Paperland have started up a blog too. You can find it by clicking here.

  1. Wow as easy as A B B hadn't thought of putting ribbon thru would the cutters work with fabric or would it blunt them? and thank you Marion what a great win seems to be your month of wins.


I LOVE to have your comments and will try to answer questions as best I can.
