{These Are a Few of my Favorite Things!}


     Cuttlebug embossing folders are most definitely in my top 5 for papercrafting supplies. They add so much to a card, and the folders get better every year! Now I can't continue without giving a shout out to one of  my besties  Rebecha from "I Play With Paper" for letting me now about the newest CB embossing folder release. Thank you sweet friend!
     The cards I made today feature the newest folders from the adorable "Once Upon a Princess" 4 piece Cuttlebug folder set.  I love seeing the embossing folder used on actual cards before I buy them but I couldn't find any online so maybe this will help you decide if you want them or not!
    For the first card I used an adorable butterfly trail embossing folder. I embossed 4 different pieces of DSP, which are all from Stampin' Up!, cut them out, then adhered them to the card using foam squares that I cut in half. The sentiment if from PTI, and the polka dot ribbon is from Hobby Lobby.  I am also entering this card into the weekly challenge at "Flutterby Wednesday". You should play along if you get a chance!
  
   For the second card I used the super cute layered cake embossing folder. I added Prima flowers in 2 colors to cover the flowers that come already embossed on the folder. I accented the centers with sticky back pearls. The sentiment is from Stampin' Up, as well as the ribbon and card stock.  This week I plan on featuring two more cards from the Once Upon A Princess Set to show you just how cute they are! Yes, I am an enabler.  As always thank you for visiting my blog today and have a wonderful day!

Harriet, thank you for commenting on my card! I did a price comparison on several websites, and Ritz Camera had the best deal! The collection is called "Once Upon a Princess". It has (2) 5x7 folders, and 2 standard size folders.

Oh, I like, I like! I agree that the cuttlebug is one of my top tools and I haven't seen these folders yet. I especially love the butterfly trails and I so have to CASE your flower cake sometime. So sweet and simple! :)
