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

A little knowledge is a dangerous thing!  Well as far as computers go!!!!  Yesterday I had a day long full of problems and thought  I'd solve everything, but I should have burnt the midnight oil and finished my work because this morning I'm back to square one, AND discovered that the little I know is not enough!

Thanks to all who tried to help - it's a good feeling to know that I'm not alone.  I had already installed Chrome and it seemed to make matters worse so I uninstalled and then this morning I have re-installed and at the moment I'm IN!  BUT, I've somehow managed to get into the new blogger template and I can't find my way out!   

Yesterday I had a message from Twiglet asking if I had any suggestions for an elongated heart die.  I have this one from Marianne Creatables which cuts nicely in both the Bug and the JT.  

If you know of any others please leave a comment here for Twiglet.
Also, Twiglet is looking for a plain flower die.  Well there are lots of flower dies about and if you want a large size the Nesties are worth looking at.  I would suggest looking at the main Spellbinder site for the complete range.  If it's a smaller type of flower, Marianne again to a nice range but I like these.....

They are Crealies and you get four dies on a small plate - they cut both paper and a good quality card with no problems and also layer well.  I know that CB sell them and I'm sure there will be offer available on ebay.  

Well back to trying out CHROME!  Hope to be back soonish!

I like these Marianne hearts and they also do some plain flowers. Hope your computer problems are sorted now - I changed to firefox a while ago and find it brilliant.

Thanks lots Ikki - the hearts are perfect - will get them ordered asap. I think the flower just needs to be a simple 5 petal shape that will cut fabric. I already have the TH tattered flowers. Your flower is gorgeous but I think the little blip on the end might fray off. x Jo
