Don’t forget – Class Today!   An article in today’s paper spoke about how cupcakes are a big fad right now.  And SU is up with the trends with the cupcake punch and stamp set in the Occasions minicatalog.  Here’s a quick card with both, and also the Ice Cream Parlor designer paper.  The fold is at the […]

Big Shot

If you peruse the last few months (or years) of my blog you will see lots of projects that use the Big Shot.  The Petal Cone die and the Tulip Frame embossing folder (both from the Occasions mini) are my current  favorites.  If you haven’t invested in the Big Shot machine, now is a great […]
