How-To Video: Covering Notecard with Cuttlebug Embossing


I have another video for you.  (I told you that I had some videos up my sleeve.  I love the new iMovie…)  🙂

This one shows how to cover an entire notecard with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing.  It also shows how to add color to the dots. 

And!  Please go to the Cuttlebug Challenges blog HERE.  They have tons of fun Cuttlebug ideas… and inspiring projects in general.  I am honored to be featured there today.  (Thanks, girls!)

042609 Cuttlebug Color
Supplies: Hero Arts notecard, Making Memories glitter chipbard, Stampin’ Up felt flowers, Hero Arts black gems and I can’t remember where the greeting rub-on is from – sorry!

Oh… and Happy National Scrapbooking Day!  Be sure to visit Hero Arts for a giveaway and 2peas for LOTS of fun stuff.

Another thing… I am now twittering.  I really resisted this since I don’t have anything interesting to say.  And I don’t think you all really care when I am doing laundry or making dinner. (I know I don’t – ha.)  But I had to start doing it for something, so I thought I would make the best of it.  I think I am going to start using it to share fun links I find here and there.  If you don’t twitter, no worries, you can just see my posts on the left sidebar here.

Thanks for stopping by again.  I hope you have a fabulous weekend.  Anyone have any fun plans?

  1. Jennifer- I have been a layout scrapper for years, and just got a Cuttlebug. My DD and I spent a couple nights (during AI) running lots of chipboard shapes through it -we’re having a blast! I really just discovered that you do all these Cuttlebug projects (I don’t have time to surf the net much) – I have always loved your work. Abby (6) watched your video with me – and she is on board to color in all those dots! Now I need white CS too – I bought lots of Core’dinations just for the Cuttlebug. I am excited about being able to do paper crafting with my daughter with beautiful results. If you have time this weekend stop by my blog to learn about the Magistical Memories blog hop!

  2. Wow Jennifer, that’s FANTASTIC. I’d never have thought to do this. Thanks for inspiring me yet again, I am going to go try it NOW. So excited. Happy NSD to you too, Love Lucy.

  3. Thanks, Jennifer!!! Love your card, as always. I’ve been resisting getting anymore gadgets, simply because my bank account might hate me later… 🙂 But man, that Cuttlebug looks AWESOME! And I LOVE the idea of coloring in the little dots!

  4. This is my VERY FAVORITE folder. I did the challenge. I posted it in my blog. I didnt know if it was being timed or not so its very simple.
    Thanks for the challenge.
    Dayami 🙂

  5. Even though my daughter is 12 and doesn’t have that soft toddler voice & she’s not even home at the moment, I heard that quiet little “Mommy” at the end of your video & turned around thinking she had walked into my office. Whew! That gave me a laugh. Great video, thanks for sharing.

  6. Dang – you have the most WONDERFUL ideas ! ! I’m headed to my Cuttlebug to try this one out now. Thanks for sharing.

  7. Why is it that I get so many “duh” moments after watching your videos! LOL! Love the card – especially the color you added to it!
