Recently I aquired a little machine called the Texture boutique. I love the look of embossing and have never enjoyed dry embossing using a light box. The sounds of the stilette on the paper on the lightbox makes my teeth hurt. So this texture boutique is something that gives me great joy!

I first aquired a couple cuttlebug embossing strips for borders, while I was in search of the ones that I really wanted. My fist ones that I got are the Dotted Swiss and the Flower one that come as a pair.

My favorite one is the Tim Holtz' Wood Grain one. Oh my, I love this. And I especially love the embossing look on Velvet paper! SO gorgeous.

Supplies used: Basic Grey Patterned Paper and ribbon; Tim Holtz for Stamper's Anonymous stamps; Basic Grey and Class Appeal Stickers, Emobbsing folders by Cuttlebug and Sissix

THat is what I have for you today. See you later in the week! Love and Hugs, Lara
