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!

Crafts Too You embossing folders

Hi, today is the 26th July and in 6 months time it will all be over!  Yes, I'm talking Christmas.  As a rule I never start making Chrissy cards before October, but since I showed you the new folders from Crafts Too You last week, and some many readers showed an interest I thought I'd better put my festive hat on!
This is the 5" x 5" Crafts 2U Dots embossed on to a 6" x 6" card, and you cannot see the join!

This is one of the sections of the Crafts 2U Christmas Greetings - there are 6 in all.
They emboss well - this is on a glimmer card.

My first CC card for 2l10

All I've added is a Snowflake made with a Nestabilitie Create a Flake die. 
Very simple, easy to do in a hurry, but nevertheless .... you tell me?

This is a very quick post, just as my card.  Yesterday I was out all day playing bowls, sad to say our County lost to a better Dudley & District side, happy to say I managed to win my own game.  Time is flying and I'm really busy preparing something special !?!?!?   Tell you soon.....

Today is my mates Chrissie's birthday, so pop over and send her your best wishes as she has not been feeling well.   Happy Birthday Chris, hope you have a great day!

That is sooo stylish and sophisticated, Ikki! I love it. It's simplicity and lack of colour in favour of white will make it a big hit, and it should stand out among all the other cards the recipient has. Great work!

Eileen...such a beautiful card. So love that snowflake. Love the look of your blog and what a lovely photo of you. :-) Now bowls is so much fun...a couple of years ago my tennis partners and I had a fun few months playing barefoot bowls.

Simple and classy Eileen. Doesn't need anything else. Love the embossed greeting especially.
I and my friends Ann and Irene have been making Christmas cards since January as we run Bah! Humbug! Challenges - are you blinded by my halo shining LOL? Much less stressful than making them all in a rush at the last minute, which is my usual.

I have just found your web site and love your card. I have Spellbinders Shapeabilities Create A Flake 2 but your card looked different. Can you confirm the die you used because I think it is wonderful. Thank you very much for your help. Irene
