I am positively beat from the weekend! I had an Open House with my downline on Saturday and Sunday and there were about 150 stampers total in attendance. It was super fun, but whew! I'm tired! Unfortunately, my camera was left at home…but I do have some fun stuff to share!
Friday afternoon, Mr. Brown arrived with this:
The brand new Big Shot die cut machine! Oh, my! First I was scared of it. What in the world do you do with all these things?
I quickly found that it is VERY easy to use and Amy, Janet and I whipped up some great projects with it.
Yes, crafting is messy…a wonderful mess though, don'tchathink?
This is my favorite die. The Top Note. This is exclusive to SU and you won't find it anywhere else!
This is the Top Note die cut and folded in half for a topper. Cute, yup! I know! Then I embellished it with some of the flowers from Build a Flower die.
Another card using Build a Flower. I also used the new colors, Pink Pirouette, Riding Hood Red, Kiwi Kiss, Bella Rose DSP and the Heard from the Heart stamp set.
One last sample using the Birds and Blooms Sizzlet.
What is my favorite thing about the Big Shot? You can cut through 50 different materials! Including CHIPBOARD! Do I hear a woooHOOOO!!!??? So now you can make your own chipboard elements, then die cut the DSP or cardstock the same exact shape, glue it on and it's perfect!
