"Next Besties" by BettyBee



WoW! The wait is over, and, as promised ...my very first tutorial video! I would like to thank my director, Bob, and my producers, Doug and Brad, for making it all possible, because I am NOT smarter than a fifth grader when it comes to getting contrary computers to co-operate! Truly, they got some major bugs worked out to bring this to you, and I appreciate it greatly!

Now, on to the show! We all love that sharp embossed edge that Nestabilities give their die cuts, but sometimes they don't have the size or shape that we might need. I've come up with a way to use the Cuttlebug, and my Cricut (or you can use any cutting system) to create Next Besties, because they are the next best thing! I hope this will give you some ideas so that you can create something fabulous today! Be sure to check out Cuttlebug Challenge for more great ideas, too.

Loved your lesson. Going to get some new work out of my Cuttlebug. Thanks for covering it all.

Was at Diane's and then found you. That's the way to start my week!
