Cuttlebug Embossing Folders, Borders and Card Combo's

I'm back after a long time -- sorry for the hiatus but honestly the summer heat and humidity has been so bad that I have been treating myself to "mini sta-cations" by coming in late and leaving early in order to stay in my cool house longer!  Chloe loves it because she can sleep longer on her big leather sofa.  I've been spending time furnishing my second guest room in time for this weekend's visit of my sister Ann and her daughter Emilee.  I have also been baking Pumpkin Apple Bread as my apple tree had a bumper crop of apples.  Honestly I didn't know I had an apple tree because it is hidden on the side of the house.  My housekeeper kept collecting the apples so I felt I had to do something with them.  The bread is delicious and makes me think of fall as I smell the delicious aroma of cinnamon and nutmeg!

Well enough about me -- let's talk New Cuttlebug products.  We got our first shipment of the new 2008 Cuttlebug embossing folders which will work in either the Cuttlebug or the Wizard.  Here's what's in stock now -- be sure to double click on the photo for a bigger view:

These are Embossing Borders Sets.  Each set has 5 individual borders.  Here's a sample I made with the Frills set:

Next we have new A2 card-size Embossing Folders.  These are like the ones we've had before.


Here's a sample I made using the Bird Call folder:

Finally, we have something brand new called Cuttlebug Card Combo's.  They include a full size embossing folder and a die that cuts out words.

Here's a sample using the Everyday Greetings Card Combo:

And if that's not enough to entice you, there are more coming for Halloween, Fall and Christmas.  I am hearing that the holiday products are either going to be limited editions (not manufactured again) or they will be in limited supply.  The net effect is the same -- if you see one you like you should buy it now because you may not find it available later.  I have ordered a good amount and you can contact me and pre-order any of these right now.  I expect the holiday products to arrive within two weeks.  Here they are -- and I love them!
Emb-and-Die-Halloween These are another combo product.  First use the die to cut the image then insert it into the matching embossing folder to emboss it.

Emb-and-Die-Xmas  Same combo but for Christmas.

Emb-Folders-Halloween Embossing Folders for Halloween and Autumn.

Now let's talk about other products:
I've ordered three collections of Halloween paper and they are all really cute but different from each other.  First to arrive is the new Hallowhimsy collection from   Imaginisce.  Take a look:
