  5. congratulations on 5 years. I've just found your blog but will be following it. I still use my Cuttlebug a lot, it was my first machine and it still embosses better than the "other" one. They sit side by side on my table. I love all the folders. my favourite set is Labels 8 and Fancy Labels 8 that Deneen used for her card.
