How often do you use your Cuttlebug?

I've had mine for about 2 years and forget all about having it until I see something cute made with one of the folders!

Tonight I made some cards with Coredinations card stock and sanded the embossed areas. How simple is that? And the cards turned out cute too!

There are a few photos on my blog. All the credit for these cards goes to TheScrapaholic. She posted some like them on the CFS message board.

I use my CB a lot! I love the look of the embossed papers you can make with it. I don't use it for every project, but quite a few!

same as you...i have had it a few months and have never used it. i usually only think about it when i see the amazing things others have done with it. i re-arranged things in my scrap room ad it's out and close to my table so i'm hoping i'll use it more often.

I use my Cuttlebug a lot too, even if I just emboss a small image - cut with either my Cricut or a paper punch.

Love my Cuttlebug!

I wish we could buy all CB folders that would emboss at least 6" x 5" so the entire A2 card front would fit edge to edge.

There are times when I use folders like the Swiss Dot that I wind up with a tiny area that's not embossed.

So far the only large sized folders I've found at HL are ones that I already have in the smaller size so I only bought the polka dot one.

When Big Lots had the dies and folders I wound up buying 31 of them to add to my collection. Ask me how many of those I've used! LOL!

I forget to use mine too, but that doesn't stop me from "collecting" folders!
Yesterday I found teh companion set to OUAP at J's - used my 50% cpn and got 4 folders for $10! I had never seen this set before, and haven't really considered any of the companion sets because I don't have those newer carts. But these are really versatile! Now to use them...

Nice! Love the old pic of you. Cute!

I have to actually sit down and do LO or cards to even think of using it. RollEyes It's sits right on my desk in plain view, so can't really forget about it. Well, actually, knowing me I could. Flapper

If something is right out in front of me, I use it more. My CB is put in a cabinet and I always forget about it. I really need to get it out and use it more. Your cards are soooo cute!!!

I have had my cuttlebug longer than I have had the cricut and when I first got it I embossed EVERYTHING! Now I too forget that I have it and most times i make a card saying to myself "needs something" thats when I see my little green bug off in the corner :( she would have made it look even better!

I use my CB all the time .... Seriously I use it way WAY more than I use my cricut .... I don't think I can finish a card anymore without using my CB .... I have a lot of nestabilities and I use them with my CB for everything .....I love embossing wiith my CB and have recently bought quite a few 5x7 folders...These work great for me because I like to do my cards a little larger than A2 ....I'm hoping they come out with a bigger CB eventually.... I'm waiting to see what Spellbinders comes out with for the Grand Calibur, since it takes 8 1/2 x 11.....If they come out with bigger embossing folders along with the bigger dies then I'll be making another purchase.....

I use my Cuttlebug several times a week. I love it. I recently have been learning how to double emboss on it and I am loving that. I love to make cards and find that I use that more than the Cricut to make them.

I have quite a few folders, and they sit on my crafting desk.

But . . . . . . I get my cards glued together, then think, oh no, I should have cuttlebugged them!

So, I don't seem to use it as often as I should.
