Look at what's coming soon!

I'd like to say a big hello! and welcome! to my new followers - it's lovely you could join me.  I've not got a card to share with you today - but have one almost done so maybe by tomorrow .. .. .. we'll see.  I did want to let you see a sneaky peak at the new products that Marianne will be bringing out very soon .. .. those little love hearts are sure to be a hit what with Valentine's day not that far off - well we crafters have to think ahead! And the ability to cut out the pieces to make a little owl decoration - great if you are a patchworker.  And on the second page those big fancy edge dies to cut big circles, and other things, well I'm definately going to have to try out those!

If the link doesn't work then go to Marianne's own web site here and take a look.  And, a couple more of my cards made it into the gallery too!  I've not sent in any more as I like to keep them 100% Marianne, so although I'm using her products on just about every card I make, quite often the image is from another manufacturer.

I do have a query .. .. my old Cuttlebug is hanging on in there but has certainly failed the MOT, so it's time for a new machine and Father Christmas has hinted that I might just get lucky!  So ladies, and any gentlemen reading, what gadget would you recommend for cutting my Marianne dies?  And crucially, for embossing them - at the moment I'm having to go over all the embossing the old fashioned way by hand and it's taking up a lot of my time.  Either leave me your suggestions in the comments or email me at

Well I have to get motivated - still in my dressing gown and new Yak boots - a pressie from hubby to keep my feet warm, they work!


  1. Thanks for the link Annie, lots of very interesting new products on their way then !

    My Cuttlebug is getting a tad worn out too - I've been looking at the new eBosser machine that cuts and embosses up to A4 size sheets. It's electric too but it more pricey than even the Grand Calibur - Oyster Stamps were taking pre-orders and apparently sold thousands, but they are showing sold out on their website at the moment. They are selling for £159 which is about £40 cheaper than others I've seen online. I'd like to use some of the few large dies I have to maybe cut some fabric shapes and the details of the EB say it cuts fabric. Might have to send a letter to Santa I think !

  2. I've not looked back since I replaced my exploded Cuttlebug with the Big Shot - absolutely brilliantly reliable & so so much easier when it comes to embossing. Brilliant value for money too.
