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!

Be Inspired Cuttlebug Challenge 30#

The month of May - it's time for Weddings! My Nestie heart dies are sure coming in handy!

The Cuttlebug Challenge this weeks was guess what - Yes, weddings and so.... I have made a card and boxed it. This is was a new venture for me, never made a box before - it's not perfect but does make the card look good and expensive!

Inside the card I used the heart dies and also for the embellishment. The initials are from the Harmony set - couldn't be more appropriate!

Absolutely gorgeous Ikki! I love that you have made a box to put the card in too - for a first attempt it looks pretty perfect to me and I agree, it definitely makes the card look very expensive! The flowers, pearls and feathers are all beautiful touches too! Thanks for joining in the fun this week at Cuttlebug Challenges!
Hugs Mrs Jx
P.S. Thanks for your lovely comment on my blog. The pins are from my local craft or haberdashery store - I haven't been as creative as to make my own yet! If I post a card with pins I usually just dig around for anything suitable to cover the ends (usually foam) and I sometimes add a piece of card inside the envelope for extra protection for the postie!
