Creating Keepsakes & Big Shot

Catherine Projects

I was a vendor with a few of my friends this weekend at the Creating Keepsakes Convention and boy, was it a blast!  All kinds of crazy scrapper girls from all over North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia and even West Virginia and Georgia!

We decided that we would have a make and take featuring the Watercolor Crayons (I know you've been thinking about them!  E-mail me and I'll place your order for these to die for babies!!) and the Big Shot die cut machine.  The gals colored (with the Always Artichoke, More Mustard and Ruby Red Watercolor Crayons) directly on the stamp  from Inspired by Nature, spritzed it with water, then stamped their image on So Saffron cardstock.  Then we ran it through the Big Shot using the exclusive to Stampin' Up Top Note die.  I LOVE this one!

Here is the finished scrapbook page featuring the make and take element.

And here is the facing page…now don't be distracted by the beautiful child!  Check out the artwork!  Awesome, huh!!??   LOL

Check back in the next couple days for the promotion I will be running for you to preorder your very own Big Shot die cut machine with exclusive Stampin' Up dies!!!

One of the things that I love the most about the Big Shot is the impressive list of things it cuts through!  Imagine having an letter…die cut it with chipboard and Designer Series Paper…no tracing, cutting, sanding!  Viola!  It's done!  Check out this list:
