How-To Video: Cuttlebug Heat Embossing


Decided to load the bigger of the two videos tonight.  This one shows several things:

- Cuttlebug heat embossing
- Creating scallop edges
- Creating a stay-put bow


It is longer - sorry about that!  Hope you enjoy.  Please feel free to give suggestions on future video ideas!

(By the way... these songs are again from my brother-in-law.  The first one he sang at our wedding.  Great song, huh?)




Love what his shirt says.  Hee.

another great video! I really like seeing how your layouts come together. I'm going to have to try out the heat embossed cuttlebuged paper - it emphasizes the pattern so much.

Great Tips and tricks as usual Jennifer!! I loved the jute tying! TFS!!

Great Tips and tricks as usual Jennifer!! I loved the jute tying! TFS!!

Loved the video and music.I also like to her your voice,but thats because I don't do subtitled movies

So many tips in one video! Awesome! And love the layout and the journaling --- cutie pie!

What a beautiful page...thanks so much for the video, I really enjoyed it. Love, love my slit punch as well, use it all the time! I recently used it on some Making Memories aluminum sheets for a LO I did this week and had so much fun with it.Thanks for sharing!!

i have a collin too! this is such a cute layout, simple and modern, but makes me want to try scrapping, i haven't yet, only cardmaking so far because scrapping intimidates me

That's a cool little contraption that cuttlebug. Your brother inlaws music is great he reminds me alot of Keith Green, which you may be too young to know who he is.

Great layout Jen! I have now bought an embossing folder, but not the cuttlebug yet. Doing things backwards :o) I also love to hear your voice, but its still fun with the subtitles too!!

I'm another who likes hearing voices :) lol.. but I don't mind the subtitles either!! Thanks for the video, it was great to see you at work! :)

that was such a great video jennifer! and a super fun layout! you already convinced me to get a cuttlebug ... and i have the embossing folders shipping to me right now. lol! and you may have now convinced me to try heat embossing something. i have the stuff ... just have never tried it. that's what i'm loving about your videos. just seeing you do these techniques ... it makes me realize that it's not that hard or scary ... you make me think i can actually do it! lol! thanks for sharing!!!

Great video, Jen! Love watching you work. :) And Colin is that little hand on his hip...cute, CUTE! ;)

if i wasn't already addicted to my cuttlebug...

AWESOME! More uses for the Cuttlebug! The video and music were great! The layout really turned out cute.

Loved the video, and the layout! :)
I couldn't believe that was your little Colin, he's getting so big!

Great Video...and totally enjoy the length of it. I could watch you ALL DAY! I loved watching your style when you create any of your lay outs or cards.

The video was not to long for me. I was really getting into all the how-to's that were covered in this one. I have never thought to heat emboss paper that you emboss. This is a wonderful tip I can not wait to try. By the way your layout is amazing!!! I love the color and balance along with the sketch. I can not scrap with out a sketch.

Many thanks for sharing your talent. I feel like I am sitting in one of your classes with pretty music.
