Hi, Thanks for dropping by.

My name is Eileen but to friends in the card making world I'm known as 'ikki'. (which is pronounced I-KEY) From where or how this came about I'm not sure - it just got shorten from my original craft name of Ikemo by various friends along my crafting way! I started crafting whilst recouperating from an accident, and from my first attempts with peeloffs and paint - I was hooked! Now my passion is my BUG! and now BEADING!

In the Cupboard you will find ideas, news, tips and techniques to help you get more from this fab little machine. So come in - join the fun and Cuttle with me!

Cuttlebug news - Thanks for joining me in my cuttlebug cupboard

Welcome to my Cuttlebug Cupboard. I have been asked by so many of my friends and buddies on the Docraft forum for information on my cuttlebug cards. So I decided to start this blog dedicated to the CUTTLEBUG - MY FAVOURITE TOY AND PIECE OF EQUIPMENT. So, hopefully, (she says) with fingers crossed, I will be able to answer some of your queries and help you also come to love and use your BUG! So I hope you will read on.......

Please leave me a comment and your name and add DC, so that I know you have visited and I can keep in touch.

Hi Ikki I have had a go & found it so easy to follow. I don't have a bug or border embossing folders but got great results with my Big shot & A2 folders. Still had to put ribbon on to finish it off but no ridge.

Hi Ikki

Fab thing you're doing - I'm going to add a link from my blog!

oh wow, what a great blog. It is going to be so useful, I am too scared to try and do different things with my bug and I think with your cupboard I might start having a practice and experiment. Can I be a follower without having a blog?
