CUTTLEBUG CRAZY, Day 3


Here is a layout I did at a recent crop. I love to cuttlebug my title letters.. Just love how it looks. I cut them out, these are from CM, Cheerful seasons, I then put them into the Xyron to sticky them up.. lol then before I pull them off to stick on page, I run the whole slip of letters through he cuttlebug, then I peel and stick! I used the dots from the Sizzix dots and flowers 2 pk embossing folders. I have to say that Sizzix does do a deaper emboss. Sometimes thats a goodie, and sometimes you don't want as deep as an impression on things, so you might want to take it into consideration. I used the tree branches cuttlebug folder for the mat under the smaller pics. I know you can't see much of it, but I do like it around the pics as a border.

  5. LOVE it! I agree the sizzix folders do give a deeper embossing! I also heard if you dampen the paper a bit before you emboss, it will give a deeper impression:)

  7. Love your layout. The forest branches folder gives your frame a real wood look. Love it!! I've got to get me one of those Xyron machines. I've been trying spray adhesive, but it is such a pain. Thanks for helping me expand my ever-growing scrapping list! :-)

  8. I frequently forget to use my cuttlebug to emboss until it's too late. It always adds to the design. I like thw branches as the backup to the pictures. The dots help the letter stan out. Love it, thanks for sharing.
