Ugh!! my least favourite season, but since I really like 3 out of 4 seasons that’s okay.
To my desk, or my cutting station ... really big news this week! Voilà!
Just loaded up my cuttlebug sandwich (see photo - that's my Cuttlebug plates), put it sideways into the machine opening, perfect ... it simply runs through.
Sensor adjusts to whatever size plates you’re using.
(*Mm could do with one of those for my clothes!*)
I didn’t like their sandwich, with C plate and rubber mat, the mat kept moving way too much.
Might work better with smaller tan mat but I tried with B plate for the A4 Embossing folders and that worked really well. For smaller folders like 5x 7 I used B plate and a thick cardstock shim. This was good. Several runs through helps deeper Embossing and you can spritz cardstock, of course, to get deeper Embossing.
My final suggestion is IF using unusual sandwiches to listen to the noise of your machine to check that it’s ok. This may seem obvious but if concentrating on other aspects it can be missed.
Every machine is a learning curve. Right shoulder strength issue is reason for purchase.
Earlier desk - whole lot of watercolour ink block backgrounds done with Tombows, some stamping for “HOW TO” see back this post here. Made 6 backgrounds, have a number of male cards for birthdays coming.
Here’s my brothers’ card, it’s his birthday Fri. First one made with my new machine. Wonky rectangles by Creatif, kraft card background is EF by TH Bricks extended, inked with DI 'Vintage Photo', spritz water & dry, rest from stash.
Quickly sharing also 3 amazing ATCs.

Wow, also equally stunning are next Sandra De’s and then Heather’s - such clever artistic work, ladies. Thank you!
Here’s my Aussie shots for today! Today is this sunny but, oh, the wind is strong south westerly, from snow up on Great Dividing Range. Used to live up there... a long time ago. This was surf this afternoon on way home.. birds loving winds!
Today saw Dr, dressing changed for last time, right shin going well. Must be patient tho as calf of left leg is SCC too, just surface cancer, so a burn off, phew!
