I got a bug

Yeah, so who hasn't caught the cold or flu bug over the last couple of months. What's the big deal about me getting the bug? None actually. Yes, I do have a cold that seems to have taken up permanent residence in my head but that's not the bug I was talking about.
The bug that I got this time is the Cuttlebug from Provo Craft. (This was my yearly income tax refund gift to me) Now if I was loaded with money I would have preferred a Cricut but the Cuttlebug will have to do. If you aren't familiar with what this is, it's a die cutting and embossing machine. It's great for scrapbooking, cards, or other crafty type projects.
This is everything that was in the box.
 
I've been looking around and comparing prices on this and A.C.Moore sells it for  $93.99. I've found cheaper than that but when I saw the price that it was being offered for at Creative Xpress I couldn't believe it. When I ordered it they were selling it for $39.99. (as of today it's $49.99) I have never ordered from this place before so I was a little leery. I was very impressed with the service. I ordered on a Friday evening and according to their website that meant that I should get my package on the following Saturday. Not only did I get it one day earlier but I received 4 different emails from them during the week regarding the status of my order. That was not including the emails from FedEx. They even included a free gift in the deal. There were 5 packs of eyelets.
Here's a closer look at the rest of the stuff I got with it.

 
I really haven't made anything with it yet although I have tried out all the dies and embossing folders. Wade didn't share my enthusiasm for the whole thing. He has no appreciation of the crafty ideas that are just waiting to be carried out here.

What's an Income Tax Refund (ha! ha!)

Ann said...

Gayle, I sure hope so otherwise I'll never hear the end of it...lol

Miawa, ah yes there were a few years when I ended up paying so it's always nice when I don't have to.
