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!

Cutting and embossing with the Joy A4 machine

I've had a request for info on the Joy A4 machine, not my favourite because of the problems I had with mine! However, since it is still on the market and folks are buying it - it may be that the manufacturers have improved the cog system which seemed to be the reason why the machine kept breaking. All of the information I have on this machine is on the separate page listed under my heading. As far as using 300 g card - I would suggest that you work up to this weight slowly. If you find any resistance with turning the handle - the sandwich is too thick! Sorry not to be more helpful, but all machines are difference - with my machine I have to take care, yours may be different! Sandra, please let us know if embossing and cutting this weight of card works okay. Happy cuttling
