Congratulations to The Cuttlebug Spot on their 1 Year Anniversary!!!

Holy smokes, how time flies!! I can't believe that The Cuttlebug Spot is already one year old!! It hardly seems possible.

I remember when Nilda (the site owner & my friend!!) was trying to talk to anyone who would listen about adding a Cuttlebug Challenge Forum to the Cricut MB over a year ago, since both these products were being used together by the MB Members all the time.  Well, it seems Nilda was a tiny bit ahead in her thinking at the time, & when she couldn't get the CB Forum up & rolling right away (and believe me, she NEVER let up trying & finally succeeded!!) she decided to start her own blog about the Cuttlebug, about embossing & that's how "The Cuttlebug Spot" was born!!! It has evolved over this year into a place where of course, embossing is always featured, but now it also includes any machine capable of performing embossing.  So whether you have a Cuttlebug, a Big Shot or Big Kick, a Wizard, or other, this site is always there to inspire & challenge you to learn to use your machines &  all of the available & ever-expanding embossing tools & products out there to their utmost capabilities, which in turn, helps to elevate your crafting abilities. For that, I personally want to give a huge "THANK YOU" to Nilda & her fabulously talented design team for everything they've done to inspire & teach us over this last year.  I honestly can't wait to see what the coming year will hold for The Cuttlebug Spot!!

To show my appreciation & to help celebrate The Cuttlebug Spot's one year anniversary, I'd like to offer a prize for Tuesday, 9/22/09.

 Nilda will have something posted on her site,  for Tuesday, 9/22/09 , which will tell you how to enter to win my prize and I promise you, it's very easy--you don't have to stand on your head & twirl around 3 times while howling at the moon, or anything like that, LOL!!  You just have to email Nilda a secret word, which I will reveal within this post!!

Now let me tell you about the prize you can win from my site, --I think you're going to LOVE it!!  I think everyone knows by now that I've been totally captivated, have fallen in love with & have been vigorously selling the Spellbinders product line for a while now.  I know from the large number of orders I have to KEEP placing to continually replenish my Spellbinders inventory, that ALL of their products are well loved & very popular.  But, they introduced a totally new concept to their product line a few months ago that absolutely exploded onto the craft world & the popularity has not diminished at all so far, so I thought would be fun to give away something from that that product release.

Then of course, I had to struggle to decide WHICH of the 8 new designs (16 new dies!!) that were introduced in that product launch to offer, since every single one is more beautiful than the next--they're all absolutely breath-taking!!! Then I remembered an amazing card that Nilda had made & posted on the Cricut MB a while back, using an entire trio of one of the new designs--and let me tell you, when she posted that card, it truly went "viral".  I received sooooo many requests & orders for the 3 matching products she used on that card, it crashed my Yahoo email box--not to mention I sold out of the entire design & had to re-order them--TWICE (so far)!!!

Without further ado, the prize will be one of the new Spellbinders TULIPS Pendant dies.  If you're not familiar with these, there were 16 new dies released together that consisted of 8 new matching design themes --one Pendant die and one matching set of the Petite (A2 size) Borderabilities dies.  They were made to complement one another and they do so very well!!  Then to top it off, when Spellbinders did another new product release right after the Pendant/Petite Borderabilities roll-out, they released a new Impressabilities TULIPS embossing die & it works beautifully with the TULIPS Pendant & Borderabilities--so now, there's a trio of TULIPS!!!!  Can it get better than that??? 

Let me show you what they look like & their cost--

- TULIPS Pendant Dies (S4-209), which I sell for $16.50  --This is the one I'm offering as a prize over at :

Next, here's the matching Petite (A2) Borderabilities dies (S4-211), which I sell for $14.00:

And last, but certainly not least, here's the TULIPS Impressabilities (I2-1008) for embossing, which I sell for $4.99:

Well, guess what??  After I decided to offer the Tulips Pendant as a prize, my little dog, Gucci (secret word!!) & I thought it would nice to offer a TULIPS Bundle, for all 3 of the Spellbinders TULIPS products together at a special price of $32.50, so everyone has another chance to own these beautiful products. Just email me at,  please put the word "TULIPS" in your email subject line & tell me you want the TULIPS 3-Product Bundle, & be sure to include your zip code!!!  And please remember, if you want any of the Spellbinders products other than the TULIPS, be sure to email me, because I can help you with ANY of them, as well as many other great products from other manufacturers!!!  (See the information listed in my right sidebar!!)

OK now, be sure to go over to  & follow the instructions about how to email the SECRET WORD (which is "Gucci") from this post to Nilda, which will enter you to win!!  And be sure to check out Nilda's beautiful card that features all 3 of these Spellbinder's TULIPS products.  Good luck to all of you!!!

P.S. Gucci wants to wish all of you good luck as well!!


  1. Thank you for a word!!! Sweety dog!!!!

  2. Thank you for your generous prize!!! Gucci is a real cutie!!! Have a wonderful day!!

  3. Thank you for the chance to win! Could you throw Gucci in also please ?!?!?! LOL

Cricut Markers using "Glenda's Marker Method"-Videos!

Do you want an easier & more precise way to use your Cricut Markers? For those of you who never saw my post waaaayyy last year on the Cricut MB outlining how to use my "Glenda's Cricut Marker Method", I finally taped some videos back in February (2009), but sadly, they were part of a group of Cricut videos I'd done that somehow disappeared off my hard drive. Then, after I recently did a "disk defrag" they magically reappeared, which was a THRILL!!!! So I finally got them edited & loaded up to YouTube. There is a "short" version of the Tutorial, which only talks about using the markers (using my "method", which does differ from the manufacturer's directions!) & shows how to change them, etc. Then there is an "extended" version, which is a 3-Part Tutorial that not only demonstrates how to use the "Glenda's Cricut Marker Method", but also gives some other "Hints & How-To's" in typica

BLOG CANDY Give-Away--made easier!! Plus, if you're a "FOLLOWER" of my blog- new & exciting info in this thread (hint: your votes=more entries!)

(This blog thread is to summarize and hopefully, make it easier for all of you to enter here to win my BLOG CANDY Give-Away.) Ohhhh, thank GOODNESS--now, finally: BACK TO CRAFTING!!! I've been soooo busy with all the orders for the Crafter's Companion products ( thank you!!! ) over the past week, I haven't been able to craft ANYTHING worthwhile. But I've been musing & thinking about what type of tutorials/projects I wanted to start with here on my blog (BESIDES the obvious, which are the Ultimate Crafter's Companion and the Rock-A-Blocks!!!), & of course, because I am the original "Gadget Queen" , who loves ALL gadgets & tools, most the things that popped into my mind were about different crafting "tools". Several of the ones ones that came to mind were those I think many of us bought with great enthusiasm when they were first released, but now, may not be getting as much use as they could be, or they may actually be gathering dust!!
