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!

Crealies Creatives

Introducing you to Crealies - Creative flower dies......

These dies are now being stock at Graphicus, the range covers flowers, shapes and leaves.  On receiving  my No.10 die, I just had to have a go at cutting them.  I was impressed!  They cut at least 3 layers of decorative paper in one go.  Using different papers this would give you 3 very interesting flowers!  I also tried a heavyweight hammer cardstock - result - a clean cut with only one passing through the Bug.  The shapes are unusual designs and can be layered either on top of each other, or alternated as I had shown in the piccy.

The dies are very thin, and the Bug sandwich is the same as for Nestabilities:  A / C / die / card / B.

Hi Ikki

I absolutely agree with you - these are lovely. I bought some a while back from the Netherlands. The leaves as really pretty as well.

Hi Ikki,

These dainty dies are really impressive aren't they? I couldn't believe how such a thin die could cut so well. Er, I think I need a few more, Lol!
