Fantastic card Broni. Love the patchwork heart. What a perfect take on the photo! Sorry to hear about your GC. I use a Big Shot, most of the time... I still have my Cuttlebug for dry embossing and when I travel...


Thanks, Monika! I have an electronic Big Shot that only works SOME of the time.  Ive already had it repaired once.  I love it but I need something totally dependable.  I may still have my Cuttlebug somewhere.  Ill have to look for that to be my backup!

Girl.....love this card, but then you already knew that!! Bar convinced me to get a vagabond....love it!!! I did an Internet search and got it through overstock.com 80 dollars cheaper.


RIP, Broni's Grand Calibur! Bless you, George and your handy hacksaw! COOL card. Seriously LOVE your vision!! I have a cuttlebug that I take to play dates where there isn't a machine. I use a Big Shot most all of the time. A couple words of caution on the Vagabond. My friend Carolyn had one. Never misused it and it quit after a few months. She got a replacement unit that also quit about a year later. I lugged it to my Mr Wonderful and we took it apart to see if we could fix it. My previous career had me scrounging parts for stuff and Jeff can fix darn near everything. I found a gear with the correct ratio, but it was too costly to make it worthwhile. I wouldn't invest my hard earned money in one after seeing my friend's frustrations. She went back to her Big Shot. And that, my dear beachy friend, is another opinionated notion from the mouth in the mitten. Happy headin' toward the weekend!

Oh no!!! I almost feel guilty for causing your GC to die! :-( I've only ever had a Cuttlebug and then a Big Shot (manual - not automatic). I love it but then I haven't used anything different for comparison. I really LOVE your patchwork heart!! Never thought to try that technique but it's totally perfect!

GORGEOUS Broni! Thank you for showing how you created that STUNNING heart!!

LOVE your heart, Broni! It's absolutely perfect for this challenge, and not something I would have EVER thought to do!

Be sure to see the email I sent you about my Big Shot! And you know too, how much Bar loves that Vagabond! If I could have got one for a good price I would have just gone that route myself.

Great technique making your heart, so creative! I only have a Cuttlebug but let us know what you decide to get!

What a fabulous design, Broni....your take on the inspiration heart is absolutely perfect!!!! Love the technique you used, too...might have to use it for a TLC challenge on SCS!!! I still live in the dark ages with my Cuttlebug...till death do us part!!!
