They look gorgeous! I am hoping to use my friend’s cuttelbug to help out with our invites too.

Those look great!!  Can I ask what a cuttlebug does?  Did it emboss that bellyband?  I’m a scrapbooker and love my cricut, do I need to add a cuttlebug to my wishlist?!

That looks so great!!! Cuttlebugs are AMAZING! I just bought one about a month ago, I’m dying to figure out a way to incorporate it into our invitations! LOL!

@jingle96 – Yes you need to add the Cuttlebug to your Provocraft herd. It’s awesome!! It embosses but you can also buy dies that cut. But since you have the Cricut you don’t need the die plates. I just use it for embossing and buy folders and whatnot on Ebay. Sooooo good!

@ bakerella:  Thanks for the info!  What’s a folder though, is it the plate that you use to emboss?  I was just thinking, since you’re name is bakerella, I’m assuming you like to bake right?  Did you see the the cricut for cakes?!  That thing looks awesome!  Will you invest in one!?

@jingle96 – Basically you get a folder that has your embossing design on it. It’s about 5×7 (the size limit of the cuttlebug), although there are smaller ones for single item designs (like a single cupcake or a balloon). You stick your paper in the folder, crank it through the machine, bah dah bing, embossed! It’s pretty cool. The first time I did I think I jumped up and down in excitement, but don’t tell anyone 😉  I absolutely love to bake. I think I’m going to try cutting fondant on my regular Cricut, I don’t see what makes the “cake” one so different. I mean, if the regular Cricut can cut cork, why couldn’t you cut fondant on it?! I’m pretty sure it’s a marketing thing more than a necessity to have a whole different machine, but that’s just my two cents based on what I’ve seen in their ads.

Such a gorgeous bellyband!  Do you mind if I ask a few questions about the cuttlebug?  I’m not a huge crafter, but this looks like something that would be really useful in my invitation making. 

Is it possible to use cuttlebug to emboss just part of a piece of paper?  I was thinking about embossing a pattern along the top or bottom of my insert cards.  Would this work?  Or do you have have emboss a whole sheet? 

I’m also seeing plates (or maybe they are folders?) online that have a lot of words/designs in one theme.  Like “thank you, gracias, merci, thanks!” all on one page.  Can you use just one or if they are laid out like that is it going to print a whole sheet with random words for thanks?

Thanks!

I have a cuttlebug.  I made our thank you cards with it.  As well as envelope seals.  Can I ask how you made the bellybands?  The cuttlebug embossing folders couldn’t emboss a piece of paper that long normally.  Did you have to emboss two separate strips of paper and tape them together to form the belly band?

Love your invites 🙂

I just got a cuttlebug. I have taken it out of the box and set it up, but I haven’t tried it out yet. It looks like it might be quite easy to use, but we will see if this user can get the hang of it.

I would also like to know how you did the belly band.
