Can't believe I have done it, but I have broken my Cuttlebug!! I am really cross with myself, I should have known I was pushing it a bit too far, I could feel it resisting but thought it would be okay, its always been such a sturdy little machine, I thought it was invincible!!
I think the problem was I was using a Crafts Too folder for embossing which I figure are slightly thicker than the CB folders, so if you use these folders in your bug, just be careful and use less shim. I forgot to remove some of the shim that I normally use with CB folders.
Well, the side of the bug flew off and it made a horrible grinding noise and bang, the whole thing fell to pieces! I am saddened too because it was a leaving gift from my colleagues at work when I retired 2 years ago. I shall have to save my pennies now for another one, luckily I have a Wizard so I can use that until I can replace my trusty old friend.
Had a little browse this evening and guess what I found, there is actually a PINK bug, now that I HAVE to have!!
RIP my lil friend !!
