Joy’s 7 Days of Give-A-Ways … Day Seven!!

Sweet!  Cuttlebug Folders!  Hey, I tied that bow on the cardstock and it looked so much better before I took the photo, LOL.

I use Cuttlebug folders in my Big Shot ALL THE TIME.  I just love using them.  I’ve even embossed paper and never used it, just to play with the folders.  If you’ve never used Cuttlebug embossing folders before let me tell you about them.  When you take them out of the package you’ll see that they really are little folders.  They open up and you put paper inside them.  Using some additional plastic “plates” that come with a Cuttlebug Machine or a Sizzix Big Shot (that’s the machine I have) OR a Sizzix BIGkick you can run the embossing folders through these machines and get a nice raised image on your paper.  There are even more things you can do with them, but that gives you a general idea about how they work.

Check out this Inking Cuttlebug Folders Technique…LOVE IT!


Here’s how I label my Cuttlebug Folders!

    I just bought my Cuttlebug a few months ago and absolutely love it! I have a tough time finding folders around where I live – the selection is always so “picked over”. I also can’t find the cute holiday exclusive folders anywhere in stores… bums me out 🙁 Oh well, thanks for the chance to win – you are awesome!

  8. With the cuddlebug folders, you can emboss something that you cut out using your cricut or other machine. It is a nice addition to any scappers inventory.

    Okay…. I don’t have a BigShot yet…. but if I win these, I will probably have to buy one! If I don’t I can just use them on my mom’s machine for now…..

    And isn’t it crazy how bows are so hard to photograph?

  18. Love the cuttlebug. Thanks for sharing your filing method. I store my folders in a similar clear shoe box from WalMart. Thanks for the chance to win!

    1. You’re welcome 7524kes! Those clear boxes come in so handy. I store a LOT of my supplies in them. I’m going to need another one for the Cuttlebug folders I’ve gotten since that filing post! YIKE!! 😀

  20. Great folders. My cuttlebug is my most used tool and it’s in need of some new folders 🙂


  21. Oh no, your week of give aways cant be over! lol

    A Big Shot is another toy, umm, I mean tool that is on my wish list. So if I won some folders, then I would “have” to get a Big Shot. Right?

    Thanks again Joy for 7 chances to win some fabulous goodies!!

    1. Yes, Tammy. That’s how it always works for me, just ask DH. 😐 I get one thing, then I need other things to go with it. It’s like the “When You Give a Mouse a Cookie…” book!! 😀

  22. I bought a Big Shot a few months ago and I haven’t even taken it out of the package. Isn’t that sad??? I bought it pretty much just so I could use the folders so this would be a great addition to the 1 (yes I just have 1) that I already bought. Thanks for the chance to win!

    1. I’m not positive, but I think there might be a law against leaving a Big Shot in its package that long. 😉
      Once you take it out of it’s plastic prison…I think you’re going to like it!

  23. iluvfireflys says:

    I just bought The Wizard so these will go perfectly with it!

  24. Oh Pick Me, Pick Me!! This is the one tool I NEED but haven’t bought yet – If I win I’ll HAVE to go buy it!!! Love your ideas – your site has become a wealth of knowledge/inspiration to me. Thanks again for offering these great giveaways! PLEASE PICK ME!!

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE my purse! There are so many fun things to do with the embossing . . I just made a fun valentine puzzle using the hearts – I wish I had more of the embossing plates, as they make such great cards with little effort

    1. The Purse is sooo cute! For anyone who doesn’t know what we’re talking about…it’s called the Sizzix Texture Boutique and it looks like a pretty blue purse. It’s very affordable too. Here’s a picture of it and a link (click the photo) to a whole package of stuff with it for right at $40!
