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!

Tippy ~Thursday

I have received a message about the Cuttlebug all in one folders.  I have no knowledge of these folders but assume that because they are Cuttlebug they will go through the Bug!  However, as far as the JT machine is concerned - I would not on use them. 

My JT machine broke a few months ago for the second time.  My supplier, Liz of Make a Lasting Impression could not have done more to put the matter right at considerable cost to herself!  When the second set of cogs arrived, I would not have been able to fit them, but fortunately I know a man who could.  (Bless him).  The machine now cuts, and will emboss masks but I have only tried embossing a folder once, and I had to hold my breathe - it took the folder okay, but then  tightened and it was a real effort to get it through.  The machine just does not like the double thickness of folders, this was the same with the GC and they produced a new plate which you had to buy! So, Jilly and answer is No where the JT is concerned.  When you get to using your new folders, perhaps you would like to let us all know of your experience.

Just a word if you are thinking of buying new dies and folders - my suppler Liz has reductions on some of her dies and also a good selection of embossing folders and masks.  You can view by using the link on my sidebar.
