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 Border Folder - Quick and Easy

I'm very limited with crafting time at the moment, but I managed to fit in a quick and easy card for my selling folder - I have a number of customers who like handmade cards, but not too expensive ones!

On this card I used a pre-designed label. The colours and patterns attracted me and at 5p each - I think a good buy.  Obviously I got a few!  Since recently I seem to have been smitten with stamping, I had a go at embellishing the tag with some of my new stamps....

Using a border folder and 2 scored lines down the edge.....
I ended up with quite a touchy feelie card, but not sure if the tag would have been better at an angle!?!?
Still, never mind, I have more tags!

Have a great Sunday and whatever you are doing - enjoy.

Lovely card Eileen, I like the tag straight but I think it would look good at an angle too.

Loving this idea Eileen, a super way to turn a tag into a beautiful card.
Have been looking where I can contact you direct as I have a question concerning Spellbinders Fleur De Lis Die.
Thanks for all your tips, where would we be without you.
