I'm having dreams of this machine...



Cricut crafters probably saw this news out there already, as it happened a couple weeks ago, but I still can't get it out of my head and want to share with you all the reasons why I am crossing every finger and every toe that this gorgeous Anna Griffin Cuttlebug will be mine one day!

For those who don't know, Anna Griffin is a big name in the crafting world. She has some of the most gorgeous and fun designs that have a distinctively vintage feel. She helps make all of her genius easily accessible for us low level and low skill crafters, for which I have mad respect. She even helps you recreate her beautiful designs with different walk-through tutorials on her blog

What I'm trying to say about Anna Griffin can be summed up in the following sentence: She is a crafting genius who actively shares that genius with the world and I adore her. 

Her latest product, in partnership with Cricut and HSN, is completely in the same vein of providing next level crafting, but is a little bit mind blowing and a lot bit incredible. 

EMBOSSING FOLDERS
Let's just all be honest with ourselves and admit that there are not enough embossing folders in the world to make us happy. Without a doubt, we will always, always, always see another one that we say we must have because think of all the potential! 

The Anna Griffin Cuttlebug comes with 2 embossing folders and the necessarily plates to crank it through the machine. If you have no clue what I'm talking about, click on that link and there's a short video that will show you how it works. But if you do know what I'm talking about, know that this will allow you to have a piece of that signature Anna Griffin look on your own paper in your own home. 

MIX & MATCH DIE CUTS

This, my friends, is the mind blowing piece. Anna has created a mix and match of different embossing folders and die cuts to pair together. You don't have to use a punch, or to try and match up cutting a pattern out on your Cricut, or even trying to have the right stamp with the right ink at the right time. Her embossing folders and die cuts allow you all the variability you could ever want. 

You could create windows in the cards. You could create layers with an embossed message on the front. You could even get really fancy with the foil rubbing and really make it pop. So, so, so gorgeous.

AESTHETICALLY GORGEOUS
I guess it could almost go without saying, but that's not really my style. The design and color and just overall look of this Anna Griffin Cuttlebug is totally something I want to sit out on my crafting desk all of the time. The Anna Griffin Cuttlebug is sleek, compact, and has a subtle elegance that is signature Anna Griffin.

Lisa is a gamer, crafter, fangirl, mother, wife and unabashed nerd who is pretty ridiculous and it's best you know that up front. When she's not binge watching Netflix or crafting into the wee hours of the night, you can find her spending a lot of her time on Pinterest and Twitter.

  1. You're an enabler!!! LOL. I don't need the cuttlebug (although I like the color!!) but I really want the folders... only $25 on HSN for 8 folders plus borders! That's insane. I love embossing, I could hoard embossing folders till the cows come home!
