Hi all!  My name is TaMara and I'm a scrap-aholic :)  I live in SC, am
married to a wonderful man, and have an 8-month old son.  I've been
scrapping for a little over a year.  I'm very e***d to have found this
group.  Next weekend, I'm taking a class at my lss on using coluzzles; I
can't wait because I've had the starter kit for 6 months and haven't
used it yet (I'm afraid) LOL.

Coluzzles are great.  I have collected almost all of them now  and I use
them for cutting pictures and then the mat or frame in the same shape.  I
cut the picture using one size and then use the next larger and the next
smaller size of that shape to make a frame.  You can even dry emboss the
frames.  This way they always fit your picture -- unlike the packages of
frames you purchase.

Yes, the Ta is stressed (it ends up sounding a lot like tomorrow). My dh solved
it for his family, who could never get it right, by just calling me Mara.

Hi TaMara!   What a pretty name!!   Oh, I hope you fall in love with the Coluzzles like I did!  I've been using my circle and oval ones for almost 2 years now!   I have others too, but those two are the ones I use the most!!   Where do you live?!   Hope it's near me!!!  lol   Have fun at  your class next weekend and welcome to the NG!!

Peggy,
Please expand a little on how you use the Coluzzles for dry embossing.  It
sounds cool!  What I figure is you use a stylus in one channel and cut the
next channel.  The stylus I have would not work.  Do they make them that
will fit in the Coluzzel channels?
Thanks, Julie

Julie, The only problem with using the coluzzles is that you have to use
their whole system.  You need the starter kit with the mat and their swivel
knife.  When I got the first template I used an x-acto swivel knife and had
lots of trouble and almost ruined my template.  With the coluzzle starter
kit though, it works well.

You can put your template right on your picture, move it around until you
find the perfect crop position.  If, for instance you think your picture
would crop best at the fourth ring ( or heart or rectangle or whatever) from
the outer edge cut it at the third ring in to allow room for you frame.
Then put the coluzzle on the card stock that you want to use for your frame
and holding it down securely, cut the second and fourth ring from the edge.
Now you have a frame that covers the edge of your picture.  This frame you
can now emboss with your stylus and stencil.  If you want a wider frame use
the first and fourth ring.

It works well on mats too.  Crop your picture using the coluzzle shape that
you want.  Mount your picture on the mat paper and then using the same
template line up your picture under the correct ring and then cut your mat a
size or two larger.  Your picture is centered on the mat.  I works well for
multiple layers of mat too.

Sorry for being so long winded, but as you can see, I like my coluzzles.

Thanks Peggy, I get it now.  duh!  I thought you were using the coluzzle for
the embossing as well as the cutting.  I see what you mean now.
I just got my first nested template - fat oval - and will have to play
around with it.
Thanks, Julie

Peggy - thanks for reminding me (us) how great the Coluzzle really IS!!
When a toy is new, you play with it and put it on the shelf and forget about
it.  I really need to get mine out and really start using it again.
