Calling ALL beginner Cuttlebug Users!

Welcome to the Cuttlebug Blog. We are excited you have stopped by to visit. So relax, kick off your shoes and enjoy your stay here. We have decided to dedicate this site to beginners! (Seasoned Veterans welcome too!) As I am a beginner Cuttlebug'er I have looked around other blogs and get kind of discouraged by all the very advanced (and fabulous) designs. So I thought to myself, beginners need a place to feel welcome, make mistakes (as I am sure I will ;) and grow with creativity! So lets join together and Create, Inspire , Teach, Grow!

  23. OK, I know my cards are pretty lame, but they are the first ones that I have ever made. I used the cuttlebug on both the cards that are displayed in the link. Thanks for looking :-)

    I would have put them on my blog, but I just started it last night and I'm still trying to get the hang of that too ...... LOL

    Thanks, Annette

  35. I have uploaded the first preview of my project and you can view here. I wrote a little about it. I have an older hand me down cricut create machine and I am very excited to use it but there are so many things wrong with it. I use my aunts cuddlebug and her templates. She has a lot of them and they arent even provocraft but we use them anyway :)

    THANKS!!

  36. Great give-a-way Sabrina and gals..
    I already have an expression, but thought if I did win, I would donate it to my sister-in-law who is suffering from liver and heart disease..she is only 38 yrs old and I think she would love the gift and get scrapping her memories for her three kids..

Thanks so much for the wonderful challenge I had so much fun creating my project & only hope the recipient enjoys it. Thanks again you ladies are so awesome.
