Hi

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!

Draw for a Mandala Reflections Board

As promised the other day, due to the generousity of Diamond Card Crafts I have a free draw for you of one of their boards.  This is the Mandala Reflections Board......

The Reflections board was designed to be used with card, paper or parchment allowing you to make beautiful cards, toppers and tags. Now you can make stunning paper crafting projects by adding layers and dimension.  There are 26 shapes on the board, it's easy to use and you can either emboss straight on to your card or round a stamped image.

The board will be highlighted on Create and Craft's Paper Clinic on Monday morning in their 11am to 1pm. show.  This is a card was made by Phyllis the owner of DCC on a previous C&C show and illustrates how effectively you can use the board.
I think that if you like matting and layering and don't have the dies you need, this board is a brill alternative. 

If you would like the chance of winning this prize, you can have up to 3 entries!


1) Just leave a comment at the end of this post for 1 entry

2) Become a follower of the Cupboard and leave another comment stating "follower" for your 2nd entry. (If you already follow the Cupboard, please still leave me another comment so you get your second entry)

3) Post a link of the draw on your blog and leave another comment stating "link" for a 3rd go.

You have until Thursday 3lst March when I will close the draw and use the random generator to pick a winner. Good Luck!

Thanks Diamond Card Crafts for donating this super gift.

This board is a super alternative to using the bug when going out and about crafting, much lighter to transport and so many styles of borders/layers to hand
