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!
