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!

Friday - Followers' Gallery

Today's card that is going into the FFG is from Joe.

Joe recently joined the Cupboard followers  -  from her lovely work you will see that she loves her bug.  Joe is also a  member of DC and you will find her gallery under JoeD.  Drop by and say hello you will find some interesting crafting going on there. 

When I found this card on her blog, it reminded me of a exhibition I saw last October in Ripon Cathedral. The artist (whose name at the moment I cannot recall) had used numerous folders and emboss them in metal squares to make a frame round a quotation - it was very impressive and at the time I thought I should use that idea, but then forgot, so I was pleased to see Joe had done it for me. Thanks Joe for sharing your idea in the Cupboard.

What a stunning card. All the embossing is beautiful and the glitter really finishes it all off.

This is lovely and a good way to use up bits and pieces. Must give it a try. Well Done.

This is a fabulous card. I find the folders are a bit too small for my rather large cards, but this has definitely inspired me to use my folders in a different way. Excellent design layout
