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 folders and no lines!

I have received a number of pm's about how I managed to acheive the image of two champ glasses without any lines in my last tutorial.

I'm afraid I assumed all had read the first post I did in January "How to use your border folders in your bug". Sorry! If you check out the side bar under labels you will find it there. This tutorial was based on the longer border sets, the image in question was from the small wedding folder but the method is the same. I could never manage to emboss these folders without lines until I made a small pad (which I now call a MFP - see glossary) which is slightly smaller than the folder itself. Now it works a treat! Why not try it yourself if you are having problems with lines, but first, please read the original post. Before you use a MFP you need to understand the sandwich. Hope this helps.
