Stampin' Up! Lattice Die Card

Hello Again,
I have been using my Big Shot a great deal lately, I recently used it to punch out an accent for a card from a pop can, look for that post coming's easy to use and not only can you use the dies to punch out accents, boxes and letters but you can use embossing folders to add special dimension to your cards or scrapbook pages. The Big Shot can cut through over 50 different materials including material for those of you that like quilting...

This particular card uses the Lattice die (item # 115958) and the Extra Large Two-Step Bird punch (item # 117191) from the current Occasions Mini Catalog...It was a card I received from our Demo Group meeting in March from Chris Kolly. Check out her blog here!

If you would like to learn more about the Big Shot or would like to host a mini card class for your friends and family please email me or give me a call at 248-391-5978. If you enjoy this post please leave me a comment...Thanks

Wonderful Roses

I love roses, as you can tell from my blog name, I think this started from when Dad used to grow the most beautiful roses when I was a kid. When I saw this card on Gretchen Barrons blog I knew I had to try it out. You can check out her blog Here.

This card used the Bride Specialty Paper (item #115669) as the background and Regal rose 5/8 Grosgrain Ribbon (item # 109056) as an accent. These wonderful roses were made using the Extra Large Fancy Flower punch (item # 118073) in the occasions mini catalog. These roses would make a great card accent for a wedding card or gift bag or a wonderful card for your mom or sweetheart.....look for more of these to pop on my blog as I can't wait to make more samples using them. If you would like more information on how to make these roses or to purchase the supplies just email me or call me at 248-391-5978.

Cute Easter Treat

With Easter being right around the corner I was looking for a quick treat holder that I could make for my Grandson, Niece and Nephews and found a great idea from Connie Babbert a fellow SU Demonstrator.

I did change it up a bit to allow me to use the items I have on hand but I think it turned out really cute. Although I'm sure the kids will like the inside more than the treat holder itself LOL - These went together really quickly and would make a cute treat holder for anyone not just the kids. I mean who doesn't love chocolate !!!

Hope you enjoy it.

Gift for A Friend

My Upline and Friend Chris Kolly and I made these vinyl tote bags last week and I had to share it with you. I used retired Stampin' Up! designer paper called Georgia Peach (love it), jumbo eyelets and Stampin' Up! 5/8 Grosgrain ribbon in Regal Rose and Old Olive Satin Ribbon to complete this tote for my friend Nancy Crosby.

The color combination's are endless, you could make these for Teens using the Cast-A-Spell designer papers and the Just Jawing set or for a new mom by choosing different colors....I have an aunt that loves going to bingo....I might make her one using the Jackpot designer papers to carry her bingo supplies. It does take a while to put it all together and get all of the eyelets lined up but I sure do like the look of the finished product - Hope you do too.
