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!

Thanks for this - I've popped on over and it's brilliant. I can't wait to start playing with my nesties to see what shapes I can make.

This is a great idea that I personally hadn't thought of.... HOWEVER I have been making rectangles into narrower rectangles or squares into rectangles, by cutting the originl shape then moving the cut piece up a little in the die to cut off an extra piece. I do this with both plain and scalloped shapes. Brilliant idea to rotate the shape like this tho'. Must try it out.
