I debated for a long time, which I tend to do over most purchases, but when it came down to it. . .I purchased the Cuttlebug. A new Joann's fabrics opened up here last week, and they had it on super sale, so I purchased it. The kids and I have been having a ton of fun with it. I've been so pumped about it that I used it for today's Splitcoaststampers Technique Lover's Challenge.
I really like how they turned out, and my kids ended up really liking them as well. They are now their new school bookmarks.
Stamps: NONE! (kind of amazing on my part. . .lol)
Ink: I did use Chocolate Chip with a sponge to distress the edges a bit
Cardstock: More Mustard, Sage Shadow, Close to Cocoa, Creamy Caramel, Pumpkin Pie, and Autumn Vine DSP
