Cut@Home Blog - Scrapbooking & Card Making Ideas


Cards using the new Spellbinders

Monday, July 30th, 2012

You can make so many fun, new cards using the new Spellbinders dies! These dies are absolutely gorgeous and make it so easy to create a beautiful card for any occasion. A lot of these dies will give you a different look depending on which size product you choose to use. For example, I used the Resplendent Rectangles on two of the three cards and I just them! Each size is different, so you can get so much use out of them and make each piece different!

Card #1: I started with using the Kimberly’s Card Cuttlebug embossing folder in the background. Embossing folders give so much texture to a card! Then I used the Resplendent Rectangles to give a little more depth to the background, layered on those OH so adorable Blossom Five flowers that I use and love so much, and then gave the card a little frame focus by adding the Quickutz Botanical. After a few embellishment pearls and a cute stamp saying I was done!

Products used:

Cardstock/paper

DC0318  Quickutz Botanical

S5-147 Spellbinders Resplendent Rectangles

S4-370 Spellbinders Blossom Five

4039 Beautiful Bling Strips Sleek Strips Pearls White

Find Joy in the Little Things stamp

Card #2: Here’s that Blossom Five die again! Can you tell that I can’t get enough of it? Just wait…it will be on my new layout! I used the Blossom Five for the background to my Spiral Blossom Four flower. Add a little foliage around my flowers, a bling in the center, the resplendent rectangles as the background for my saying and we’re done!

Products used:

Cardstock

2001311 Juli’s Garden Embossing Folder

S4-346 Spellbinders Spiral Blossom Four

S4-370 Spellbinders Blossom Five

S5-129 Spellbinders Foliage Two

MC-1 Multicolored Bling

“Thinking of You” stamp

Card#3: And last but not least the gorgeous Cherry Blossoms! I used the Kimberly’s Card embossing folder in the background for a second time and layered it with the Cherry Blossoms. This die is so gorgeous that I felt like keeping it simple and sticking to the one die.

Products used:

SA1017 Teresa Collins Sweet Afternoon 6×6 paper pad

SA1018 Sweet Afternoon paper and accessory kit (Sticker sayings)

2001225 Kimberly’s Card Embossing Folder

I hope you get some fun new ideas for your card making!

Thanks and Happy Scrappin’!

How to Use M-Bossabilities in Cuttlebug

Thursday, April 12th, 2012

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 Shot & PRO, Quickutz Epic Six, and Vagabond electronic die cutting machine

M-bossabilities in Cuttlebug

Make sure you cut your paper or card stock that you will be using to the same size as your card front if you want it to fit the front of your card base, as you will not be able to run a full card through this machine with these folders.

Feel free to leave a comment if you would like to see other demos done! You can CLICK HERE to see all M-Bossabilities by Spellbinders Paper Arts!

Using Cuttlebug All In One Folders With Big Shot And Big Shot Pro Machines

Friday, March 30th, 2012

I guess you could say that this week is “How To” week! I’ve been doing some playing around with my machines and different products and want to share the information! Today I will share how to use the Cuttlebug All In One Folders in the Sizzix Big Shot and Big Shot Pro machines!

To start with, you will need one 2000895- All in One Folder and one of the All in One Embossing Plates. Snap your plates into the folder, place your paper or card stock and you are ready to roll! If you want a letterpress effect of your design, just apply ink to your plate using a brayer before placing your paper.

Using the Big Shot Machine, all you need are the 2 Cutting Plates! Place one on the bottom of your All in One Folder and one on top! That’s it! Roll through and you are done! Here is the video demo!

;

For the Big Shot Pro Machine, you will need to place the following sandwich formula starting at the bottom of your tray:

Pro Adapter Pad

Cutting Mat

All in One Folder

Cutting Mat

Roll through your machine

Yes, it is REALLY that easy! If you don’t believe me, just watch the video!

Thanks and Happy Scrappin’!

How To Use Cuttlebug Embossing Plus Folders In The Big Shot Pro Machine!

Wednesday, March 28th, 2012

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 at this time. You will also need an extra 656253-Cutting Pad Big Shot Pro Standard which are sold in a 2 pk HERE for $20.99 (Retail $24.99)

You will need to place the Adapter Pad, which was included in your machine, on the bottom of your sliding tray. Then make the remainder of your sandwich using the following:

Solo Platform

Cutting Pad

Cuttlebug Embossing Plus Folder with paper or card stock inserted

Cutting Pad

Roll through your machine. Remember to NEVER force anything through your machine!

Voila! you will have a beautifully cut and embossed image! I hope this helps with your future projects! Here’s the video!

Thanks and Happy Scrappin’!

Provo Craft Cuttlebug

Cuttlebug V2 Die Cutting Machine From Provo Craft

Thursday, August 4th, 2011

I thought that I would take today’s blog to spotlight one of my favorite little machines! Provo Craft Cuttlebug Machine 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 crops, as the design enables it to fold up and take up very little space. With buying the extended 13″ plates, there are not many things that I can’t do with it! Use it for all your card making and scrapbooking die cutting or embossing projects!

With it’s 6 inch opening, it is compatible with QuicKutz, Boss Kut, Spellbinders, and Sizzix dies and embossing folders. It is NOT compatible with Spellbinders Grand dies or Sizzix Bigz Pro dies.

Tip: Keep one B Cutting Pad dedicated as your top plate for cutting and embossing. This will help the Adaptor C and other B Cutting Pad last much longer so you are not replacing them as often! The top pad will get really warped and ugly, but don’t worry! Just keep flipping it over and over and it will become your most loved (but ugly) plate! you won’t want to be without it! It should last quite a long time, but once it breaks, you will need to replace it, so I suggest having spares on hand. You can bet that it will break late at night, right in the middle of an important project, so it is important to have one handy!

If handled properly, the A Spacer Plate should last as long as your machine, however, we do carry replacements of all the standard and extended plates JUST IN CASE!

Thanks and Happy Scrappin’!

Carrie
