cuttlebug provocraft

Next to the Cricut, the Cuttlebug is one of my favorite scrapbooking/cardmaking tool.

Embossing is what I use my Cuttlebug for mostly – the added texture gives each little card or page something special. And Provo Craft has bunches of beautiful embossing folders to choose from. At only a few dollars each, I want to own them all…

Another thing I love about the Cuttlebug (that I also love about the Cricut) is the way it looks. Provo Craft’s machines each have a feminine and unique look about them that I just love. The Cuttlebug is so cute (green is my favorite color…), how could you resist? The design is so simple – a little handle that pulls the die through. It requires no electricity or brute force, it’s so easy and safe that a child can use it, and so cute, all at the same time!

Here are some things I’ve done with mine:

I like this simple layout because it lets met have a large surface available for showing off the beautiful embossed pattern. It’s easy and quick to make, and I think it’s pretty cute too!

And I had these adorable bath time pictures but no idea to go with it for a page until I saw this embossing folder for the Cuttlebug. If you need bubbles, this is perfect!

I took my Cuttlebug to a little card making night with some girlfriends, and it was a hit. It really is fun and easy to use and it adds a totally new dimension to your cards/pages. If you didn’t get one for Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day is coming up…

These are so neat! I love that swirl cutter for embellishing. I would love one of these for making cards and scrapbooking.

I too like my cuttlebug. With the embossing folders being so reasonably priced it is a great tool to give my pages that little extra. Thanks for sharing your sample page – great idea for the bubbles.

Very nice cards and layout. I use the cuttlebug folders all the time in my old red sizzix. They work fine in it. Instead of rolling through I push down a handle and slide it through–a little more work but I already owned the machine.

As someone who just can’t seem to get into scrapbooking lacking the proper tools, I feel that this wonderful, exciting and extremely helpful sounding machine would help me greatly.
Plus, it is always fun to win something from Vanilla Joy. Never have. Maybe this time.
Lots of love for making this even a possibility.

I purchased a Cuttlebug a year of so ago and I have used it for so many cards and scrapbook pages. I love the variety in the alphabets, the dies, and the embossing folders.

I have shared it with my card classes and several of those ladies now own a Cuttlebug. It is well worth the cost.

Try adding ink to the inside of the embossing folder that has Cuttlebug written on it (best with a brayer, but can be sponged also) and run through the machine. You get such a pretty background.

Love the floral borders! Could do so much with those.

Thanks for the chance to win.

I have the Cuttlebug and quite a few folders, but haven’t used it yet. Thanks for the inspiration!
