Lots to do - Embossing






















This is my embossing for this weeks Lots to Do challenge.

I would be totally lost without my Cuttlebug I use it all the time .
This die cut and embossing set for butterflys is also a favourite of mine.
After I have embossed them I rub them with distress inks to get the colours to match my work.

These pictures are my grandparents on their wedding day , my grandmother as a young woman , and my mother as a young woman. They are all images from my vintage family photo collection.

Thanks for stopping by my blog.

Hey Jaqi, these are sublime ... I have a cuttlebug but rarely use it.... yet! Your pages really are special x

Thank you , I would be lost without my Cuttlebug, It gets used everyday. I love the way you can use dies from other machines in it too , I have a good range of alphabets and its saved me a fortune being able to make my own titles and embellishments.
Ive even embossed bits of tin pop can and even that looks amazing , the tin can cuts ok with sharp scissors and then goes well in the embossing folders, makes lovely embellishments although you need to be careful of sharp edges.
