So we know how much everyone loves to use the cuttlebug embossing folders, but we thought we would show you how you can ALSO use the Spellbinders M-bossabilities in the Provo Craft Cuttlebug machine. Embossing is a lot of fun to do with cards and with the M-bossabilities in this video below you will see that these have two designs one on each side! Very easy and very fun to do! Looking for other videos on how to use these emboss folders in other machines? Well then just click on the machine you would like to see demonostrated: Sizzix Big

I have had a few of you ask how to use the Cuttlebug Embossing Plus Folders in other machines besides the Cuttlebug, so today I thought I would share with you how to use these folders in the Sizzix Big Shot Pro Machine, since it is a newer machine.
First of all, you will need to have purchased item 657435-Big Shot Pro Solo Platform, Shim & Wafer Thin Die Adapter. Click HERE if you do not have this item already. You can purchase it on our website for $34.99 (Retail is $39.99). Unfortunately, the coupon is not valid on Sizzix items

I thought that I would take today’s blog to spotlight one of my favorite little machines! Provo Craft Cuttlebug V2! This machine is very similar to the older version which it replaced. It has the same sleek design and works the same as the older model, however, Provo Craft says it is more durable with its stronger outer casing and metal handle. It has an easy carrying handle making it very portable.
This little guy is a worker! It is the smallest machine I have, but definitely the most used! It is very user friendly and is great to take to

Today I would like to introduce the QuicKutz Tropical Splash Collection if you haven’t seen it already! Perfect for summer layouts, party invitations, and even party favors!

I am so thrilled to introduce the Decorative Lace Border Die! It is a custom Heartfelt Creations Die manufactured by Spellbinders. This die coordinates with the Wedding Collection stamps. This die has more intricate details, so if you have a “loose” machine, you will have to cut a couple times. You will need to run it through your machine and cut once and then turn it 90 degrees and cut again.
I actually ran it 3-4 times through my Cuttlebug Machine then turned it before running it through 3-4 more times just to make sure! It is well worth the extra

It has been a while since we blogged about the Provo Craft-Cuttlebug Embossing Plus Folders, however, several of you have been wondering about how to use them in your Cuttlebug Machines, so I am going to review for you! They do take a bit to get used to!
The most important thing to remember before beginning is to remove the cardboard backing by removing the two green tabs at the top! DO NOT TRY RUNNING THE FOLDER THROUGH YOUR MACHINE BEFORE DOING THIS! You could break your plates or your machine!
Once these are removed, you can take the

I appreciate when customers email with questions concerning products that I can use on our Blog! One of our customers asked today for ideas using Spellbinders Borderabilities Dies. She also asked if she could use the 12″ Borderabilities Grand in her Cuttlebug Machine even though she did not have the Extended Cutting Mats.
Yes! You can use the 12″ Grand Dies with standard plates if you are just needing a portion for a card or something short! Just make sure that you don’t bend the die where it is hanging over the edge!
If you do have the extended plates, you can

We have been waiting a long time for a plate that will allow us to use Provocraft Cuttlebug Embossing Folders, QuicKutz Embossing Folders and Sizzix Textured Impressions and Texture Fades Embossing Folders with Spellibinders Grand Calibur Machine!

It is crunch time to get you gifts done for Mother’s Day if you haven’t already! Here’s an idea for a card box if your mom likes cards, but needs a place to store them, or you can fill the box with pre-made cards for her to use when needed! Of course I used roses, because that is what mom’s like! Right?
The paper I used for my tin box is the Rustic Paper Stack from DCWV ( It is an exclusive to JoAnn Stores), and the Shimmer Stack for the roses. To cut the roses I used QuicKutz Roses die.

My mom is a scrapbooker, so she would like just about anything that has to do with scrapbooking! Why don’t you come shopping with me to see what I can find that would make great gifts for her special day!
She has tons of pictures to still put in albums as she has 10 children (I am the oldest) and 34

I have had numerous questions about the use of Provo Craft Cuttlebug Embossing Folders with the Spellbinders Grand Calibur! I decided to post your answer on our Blog today!
Start with the A Base Plate on the bottom. Place the folder (with cardstock inside) on top of the A Base Plate and cover with the Tan Embossing Mat then the W-025 Raspberry Spacer Plate (otherwise known as the Sizzix Original Cut Mat). Insert into the front of the Grand Calibur. Turn the handle until the sandwich exits at the back of the machine!

Just a quick note to let you know that we were surprised to receive a limited amount of S5-028 Nested Pennants and S5-029 Nested Lacey Pennants from Spellbinders! We were shocked because we were told these would be back ordered until the end of May!
Back order status is in the product description if it is available. Sometimes the manufacturers don’t tell us an item is back ordered until we receive our shipment and notice it is not in there. When we call about it, is when we find out it is back ordered. If your item does say it is

Today I want to show you the adorable new QuicKutz Whirlpool Alphabet! I have a weakness for swirls! The more swirly the better as far as I am concerned! This alphabet is so dang cute! You get 65 dies in upper and lower case letters, numbers and punctuation! The letters are approximately 1″ tall and come in strands held together with the tiny tabs that I mentioned yesterday with the Blue Sky Alphabet. This is the same with the new Carousel and Handmade Alphabets. I used my Cuttlebug with my extended 6 x 13″ Cutting Mats to cut a bunch
