Couple cards using the Big Shot for my Swap on Saturday!

I used the Stampin'Up! Big Shot to create both of these cards!
For the Celebrate Dress card I used the Stampin'Up! Backgrounds texture plate and the Scallops Circle #2 Die.
For the Rose Petal Card I used the Stampin'Up! Manhattan Flower Impression Embossing Folder.
I made a total of 24 of each so I should have plenty to swap, atleast I hope. It kept me busy while being laid up.
Enjoy and if you have any questions on how to make either card just e-mail me at

I Got the BIG SHOT!!!

My Big Shot came yesterday and this is what I have already made. These will be for a stamping convention that I will hopefully be going to next weekend. The convention is StampFest in Kissimmee, FL. These will be used for trades for Make-n-takes.

They are made from Dies from Stampin'Up! using the Big Shot. If you would like to see how to make one of these boxes scroll down and find my other scallop box and click on the link. They are so much fun to make and very simple!! The embellishments on top are also made from Stampin'Up! dies. Enjoy!

In Colors and Circle Circus Sneak Peek!!

Here is a little sneak peek of a couple cards using the New In Colors from the 2009-2010 Catalog and the Circle Circus stamp set to also come out in the 2009-2010 Stampin'Up! Catalog. Both cards were made with Kelly while in Atlanta. The "You only live once" card was put together once I got home as we ran out of time (so sad to run out of time to stamp). So I added a few of my own touches. If you have any questions on how these cards were made or when you can purchase the items to make them please e-mail me at

TP anything!!!

Yes I did say TP! You can TP any stamp image that you have. This Medalion was made using Sarah's Toilet Paper technique. I need to work on it a little but it was so easy and so cool to do. Here is Sarah's link and I hope you try it!!!!

Scallop Daisies Box!

Oh my gosh, this was awesome. Thank you so much Kelly for showing me how to make this adorable box!
Look!! It uses the new Razzleberry Lemonade DP and New In Color Card Stock!
You can make this box by pasting DP to both sides of the cardboard that comes in the DP for shipping purposes. You will need enough for two pieces. What I was suprised with was even having one layer of cardboard and two layers of DP, it still went right on through the Big Shot like nothing! The top and botton are made by cutting them from the Scallop Circle #2 Bigz Die (larger scallop) and the Big Shot. Here is the link for your measurements!!
The flowers are cut from the Big Shot and the Flower, Daisies #2 Bigz Die. Layer them as you wish. If you glue them a little closer to the center you will be able to pull up the petals as I did on mine.
Enjoy and I hope you try one. You will be hooked once you make it.

Top Note Purses!!

Are these not the cutest? I mean really these are adorable!
Kelly let the girls and I each make a purse. They were very simple and the girls really had a good time making them.
Did you notice something?
I got to use the new In Colors!!!
The bags are made using the Big Shot and the Top Note Bigz Die and the Oval Punch.
They are made using the In Colors which will be coming out in the new catalog, paper, ribbon and ink!
There is a small bag which has been cut and the two Top Notes have been taped to the bag.

Thank you Kelly!

This was so darn cute. One of the reason why I now have to have the Big Shot!
This was a little gift pouch that Kelly gave me and it has a chocolate inside.
It was made using the Big Shot and the Scallop Envelope Bigz Die and the Word Window punch!
So simple yet so absolutely cute!!!

Cards Made While Sitting By the Pool!!!

Who says you can't take stamping anywhere? These cards were made when I was sitting at the hotel pool watching the girls swim!
All three cards were case'd (not completely) from the June Stampin' Success. I never try to make the things in the Success and figured it was about time!
The first card was case'd from page 16, "catch the weave". Weaving is a lot of fun and real easy and something great to demo!
The second card was case'd from page 23, "templates en vogue". Most of all I was interested in trying the large paper ribbon. Love the look and easy card to demo!
The third card was case'd from page 25. As you can see I used completely different colors, paper and stamps. This was also a fun card to make!
I SUGGEST to ALL OF YOU, try making some of the items from the Stampin' Success. It will get the juices flowing and hmmm maybe you can even sit by the pool and make them!
