Day 2: Tell us all about your favourite craft gadget and why it’s just the bees knees OR Craft something that has a summer theme
Oh dear I'm suffering today - full of cold, again! I'm really looking forward to when summer finally, properly starts and I am not getting colds every two weeks!
Right, I thought I'd do this one earlier in the day as my weekends hardly ever go to plan and I find I run out of time all the time!!!
So, as I joined this late, no craft from me - but I can tell you what is my favourite craft gadget. It is my Cuttlebug!!!
Oh my how did I ever get along before it?? I have to admit to getting one fairly late on in my card-making career - only about 4ish years ago, before that I stamped and cut those images out into squares (mostly) or I stamped on any old scrap of shaped card I could find. I used stickers a lot and pre-cut shapes and heat embossed if I needed embossing.
Then the world of the 'bug opened up and I was in heaven!!!! I have to admit here the only reason I picked the 'bug over the Big Shot was the style of the 'bug - I thought it looked nicer than the Big Shot.
I emboss with it, I increased my die collection astronomically and I use it to help make almost every single card I make. OK I might not use it every time, but if I don't use it, it's only because I'm using a shape I've already pre-cut. I almost had a fit when I broke my C-plate recently - hubby was going food shopping past a local craft shop and I made him go in and get me a new plate same day!
So there we go - my favourite craft gadget.
See you tomorrow.
