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!

A new A4 cutting machine

This is news that I picked up on DC and of course the info on "Next Generation of A4 Die Cutting Systems" interested me - Apparently it will be on display at the STITCHES TRADE SHOW IN FEBRUARY - Coming to the UK late April, it will be available to all UK retailers through Once Upon a Stamp. Now this is the supplier who first brought us news of the incredible A4 Joy!!!!! Who having sold many, when they broke, told buyers to contact the manufacturer and only with pressure helped sort out the problems! I just hope they have got it right this time!! Also coming this autumn ....a new 12 x 12 system featuring the same technology as above and 12x12 nested dies !! If anyone can add information and has experience of this new machine - I sure my readers would like to hear your views.

They're giving tidbits of details on their blog. It does sound interesting :)

Thanks Peejay, I have seen their blog and also the fact that have been stopped from advertising the machine on forums. You are right it does sound interesting, that's exactly how they sounded about the Joy!

Don't blame your skepticism, Ikki once bitten twice shy, Shaz in oz.x

Not more new machines to tempt us - would be wary of jumping in too soon though in view of the problems with the Joy.

I've got the eBosser .. use it most days and have not had any trouble with it so far. Good deep embossing on this machine too... Have to say, after killing TWO Big-shots I'm a bit careful. My little Cuttlebug goes on and on bless it!
