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!

Home Sweet Home

This month Chocolate Baroque has launched a set of stamps called Home Sweet Home - the DT have created some amazing designs and you can now view them over on the CBDT blog. 

This is one from me.....


you will see I have used my scoreboard to create a sunray  -  but do please check out how my teamsters have used other ways to create this effect.  I have listed all the materials used and instructions over on the DT blog. 

Also over on the DT blog, Glenda is offering a set of these delightful stamps to one lucky crafter.  To be in with a chance of winning all you have to do is leave a comment here, and ( if you want more than one go) on any of the other DT members blogs (including the DT blog) and Glenda will do a random draw from all the comments posted (hope it's from mine!)  Good luck!

This is gorgeous. I wouldn't have thought to use a scoreboard to get the sun rays but it really works well.

Your card is lovely, Ikki. I love that effect you get with the scoreboard and the simplicity of your stamped image. I will definitely visit the other members of the team to see their designs, too. :)

hi ikki
i have a question and thought you may be the best person to help me out here
i have just bought the set of all in one cuttlebug folders from C&C

http://www.createandcraft.tv/_191419.aspx

but would love to use them on a larger machine would you know if the joy trouvaille will take these new folders as they are quite chunky i guess the calibur won't take them as that looks really narrow but wondered if you have any idea about the other machine
thanks gill x
