Embossing overload!!

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

My heart is aching and my thoughts and prayers are with the people of Oklahoma tonight who have lost loved ones as a result of these horrible tornadoes.  May God comfort you and bless you in the days ahead!!!

If you have visited my blog for any amount of time, you probably have noticed that I LOVE embossing!!  I really like the look of heat embossing but I really love embossing folders!!!  I dare not admit how many I own, (actually, I have never counted!) but I have to show my latest addition(s).

A few weeks ago, I got an email from Cricut.  I sometimes read them, but often just delete because I buy my stuff at places where I can get it cheaper.  Sorry, PC!  I did read that one and they were having a Cuttlebug sale... MANY embossing folders were $1.99!!!!!  So I got a few  a bunch  too many  some good ones...

As you can see, most are multi-packs.  I got 24 folders and borders in all plus several dies.  They even had the 6x13 B and C plates for $2.99.  At Joann's last week, I found the A plate on sale, so I paid less than the regular cost of one for all three long plates!!  But I only have ONE long folder.  I guess I need to shop more! LOL  Anyone know where to get the long folders cheaply? :)  Until then, I'll just use them to do more than one folder or lots of Spellbinders all at the same time. 

Tomorrow I have a friend coming over to make cards, so I plan to use some of these babies!! 

Embossing adds so much, IMHO, and I love the look!!  Here is a thank you card I made...

Did you notice that on this one there is both embossing and debossing??  Totally unplanned.   A corner tore a bit, so I cut the paper and turned it so the tear was under the sentiment panel.  After I took the pic, I realized I had not only turned it, I had flipped it!

My heart is also breaking for the people in OK, especially for the parents of those precious children who died in their school.

Wonderful shopping trip. I, too, like embossing folders (although I often forget to use them, I do own a few myself). Your card is lovely, and what a neat accident. It really makes for a very wonderful look!
