September Big Shot Projects & Class Announcement

Here are the projects we will be making at my Big Shot Classes this month.  Aren't they so adorable???  I had so much fun creating these and can't wait to show you!

I love the new Halloween products in the Holiday Catalog.  The Howl-o-ween Treat Stamp Set and the Boo to You Framelits are absolutely my favorite this Halloween.  So much fun!  And the new Spider Web Doilies - so pretty!  No wonder they are so popular!!!

I made several treat boxes using the Baker's Box Thinlits and they are fun and easy to make!  They are perfect for treats like candy, cookies and etc.

Do you see my punch art bat?  I made it using the Bitty Butterfly and the 7/8" Scallop Circle Punches.  You can make a bigger one with the Elegant Butterfly and the 1 1/4" Circle Punches too.  It took me a little bit of practice but I think finally I got it!!!  My hubby thought I was crazy making them but he liked them:)

Delicate Ornament Christmas Card

Happy Friday!!!  I'm so glad it's finally "healthy" Friday after having 2 sick boys all week long.  One gets better and the other gets sick...  No fun!  But they are well now and so ready for their football games starting today.  Yay!!!


I have a beautiful Christmas card to share with you today.  Have you tried the Precision Base Plate yet?  I die cut these delicate ornaments with a piece of card stock and also the new Red Foil Sheet on the Precision Base Plate and was really pleased with its performance.  No more wax paper to deal with either!  Love it!!!

Sparkly Seasons Stamp Set

Seasonal Frame Thinlits Dies


To die cut the word "spooky, I used a piece of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper to make it more sparkly!  To adhere this I used the new Fine-Tip Glue Pen (aka my new BF)!!!  Love it!!!

How about the new Halloween paper - Happy Haunting DSP?  It's absolutely cute and I find it very versatile for any occasion other than Halloween.

Bountiful Border Thank You Card

Hi Stampers!  Isn't it so pretty?  I received this card from my mega Upline Jill Olsen the other day.  I just love her design!  It's so simple and pretty.  How about the color combination?  I believe she used Watermelon Wonder and Pear Pizzazz for the flowers and leaves.  The woodgrain textured piece is Tip Top Taupe and the card base is Basic Gray.  So lovely!!!  Thank you Jill!!!
