There is a HUGE sale over at the Cricut website! Do you own a Cuttlebug? If you don’t, this is a great time to buy one. Cricut is having a Cuttlebug Sale. The machines are on sale, and so are a lot of the embossing folders and cutting dies. Cricut Mats and supplies are on sale too. AND….I know….it just keeps getting better! There is a code for FREE SHIPPING at the bottom of this post.
A Cuttlebug is a hand crank machine that embosses paper to give it a texture. You can emboss card backgrounds, die cuts, and even dinner napkins to make them fancy.
If you use cardstock that has a different color core, you can lightly sand the paper after embossing to get a really nice effect. You can also ink over the raised areas to highlight them and make them stand out. This machine features a carry handle and fold down platform, making it easy to take to crops and to store. It comes with the plates needed to cut and emboss.
You can use folders and dies from other manufacturers. I personally use Stampin’ Up, Big Shot, and Nestabilities with my machine, and they work great. Many stamp companies are offering thin dies that coordinate with their stamp sets, and they will work with the Cuttlebug.
So many companies are making embossing folders now, and there are tons of patterns from which to choose. There are all kinds of themes and holidays. Some embossing folders may be small with a sentiment and others are long and thing and can be used for borders.
The Cuttlebug would make a great gift for a crafter. It’s not too early to start thinking about Christmas. We’re less than 100 days away from the big day! The embossing folders and Cricut accessories make great stocking stuffers. I’d love to find Cricut Blades and dies under my Christmas Tree.
