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!

Halloween approaches!!!!

Hi again, second time I've been here this week - things must be improving!!  Fingers and all else crossed.

I have just remembered that I promised to show you something spooky.....

Really enjoyed doing this sample for Elusive Images - used a mixture of mediums - distress inks, Promarkers, embossing powders, glossy accents,  Of course, Nesties crept in - the top was shaped with a large circle die and the vintage corners gave is a sort of gothic look - well to my mixed-up mind anyway!

I think your card is really spooky, and would also be great for a Harry Potter fan.

The bit that puzzles me is how did you use a nesty to shape the top and only cut half a die shape when feeding through the cuttlebug?
