Hi peas, im into the modern kind of scrapping and cardmaking style. I got a cuttlebug last year and never use the embossing folders. I'd really like to start using it more. Any thoughts/ideas/pics would be appreciated!

I love using my Cuttlebug!! Look at the website and see what they have done. I love embossing the bottom 2/3 of a plain white card, wrapping ribbon where the embossed part meets the flat part and then writing my sentiment right above the ribbon. Have fun playing!!

I use a lot of the Tim Holtz embossing folders with my Sizzix. Will they work with the cuttlebug? I know I can use cuttlebug folders as well.

I use them to emboss the journaling square, or to emboss part of a multilayer stack. I've also used them to add texture to titles.

Yes, I can spell. No, my Kindle can't.
Just my humble opinion. And no, I wasn't being mean.

Sit. Stay. Pea!

Usually I do a Google Image search of the name of whatever product I want to look at in use, and gets lots of ideas. You can do that for the specific folders you have.

here is a general one:

Google Image - Embossing folder

I'm sure you could do better if you searched your specific folders.

Thanks so much for the tip on using Google. So simple.
I've just found so many ideas for using my folders!
I have quite a few and rarely use them because I tend to forget about them. I'm going to print out some of the pictures and put them on my board to remind me.
