SPOOKY SPIDER & How to Make Cuttlebug Embellishments + Videos

Well, SuperJoy has some SUPER things coming up and needed some time to do them….soooo… Here’s a card I made last year.  I used a lot of cool things to make this card.  I have more information about it RIGHT HERE!!

In a totally separate post I showed you how to use Cuttlebug folders to create embellishments!  Say What?  Yep. Click RIGHT HERE to find out how I did that.

I heart embossing folders.  Do you?  They are so much fun.  I love finding new things to do with them.  Have you seen my video on using ink with them?  That’s a technique I LOVE!!!  I love it with extra little hearts floating around. 😉  (Good grief…extra little hearts?  Really?  What am I in junior high over here?  LOL!)


Since I’m talking about embossing, let me go ahead and mention this other video I did.  People are always asking me what my favorite embosser is…hmmm…that’s tough.  However, I did make this video comparing the Big Shot and the Cuttlebug.


Lastly, in this video I demonstrate the Sizzix Texture Boutique embosser.  It’s so cute!  It’s shaped like a purse.  LOVE!  You’ll see the demo closer to the end of the video.  The title of the video is actually “Cricut Life is a Beach 5 o’clock Somewhere…”.

  5. I love embossing and I love my cuttlebug folders, but I’m also very anal, so how do you get the ink off of your embossing folders?

    1. Littlen,
      I use water soluble inks, so I can just rinse them off. 😉 The kind I use is by Stampin’ Up. I show them in the folder inking video…I think. 😉
