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!

Hi, thought I shall say that tonight whilst trying to emboss a folder - my new JT broke! I will update you asap on the outcome, but at the moment the plates are jammed in the machine. I'm really disappointed - it seemed so promising! If you have a JT - take care if it's stiff when embossing with folders - stop. Don't risk breaking yours!

Hi Ikki. I feel sad for you at this time. I do hope the plate can be rescued and the JT be fixed.

Hi! Ikki,

Sorry to hear your new JT is stuck.
Hope the plate can removed and you can be back to playing with your new toy. Yikkes

Oh and you would be so very careful Ikki, so that is lesson.. and trust you can find a safe way to release the plates.. maybe a phone call to folk who make them? and they will come to the rescue.. glad my bug has not done that..weak hands are good sometimes!

Oh no...that is not good news. Hope that the JT can be repaired and the embossing folder rescued.

Yvonne Russell said...

Oh my gosh... already. How disappointing. I hope it's just at temporary glitch related to getting to know the machine and nothing more.

Thanks for your updates on the JT.
