I earned this Christmas Keepsake Box kit which is now over half done – yes there is more!   It features some of the products in the new Holiday Minicatalog.  Stay tuned, maybe I ‘ll get it finished this week.  My favorite parts so far are the Holly Berry Bouquet DSP scallop trim and the Wild […]

Halloween Bag

Here’s another fun Halloween project using the Fancy Favor die for the Big Shot.  I added a panel of black that was embossed with the spider web folder.  The stamp set used for the tag was It’s a Wrap Holidays.

Halloween Bookmarks

If you can’t give treats, how about a bookmark.  This is another Convention CASE, but I used the Batty for you and Hand-Penned Holidays instead of Festive & Fun (no I don’t own every stamp set!)  The fun part is running the top panel through the Big Shot with the dotted embossing folder and the […]

Another Convention CASE

This card I made using the Direct to Paper Technique and SU ink spots.  The stamp set is Charmed.

Easy Events

I think this card was CASED from a convention display photo.  I used the Easy Events stamp set, Woodgrain background and Designer Frames for the Big Shot.

Box Wrap

I believe this idea was demonstrated at Convention.  You make a #2 Box with your Big Shot (mine is stamped with Gently Falling).  The Spice Cake DSP wrap is 3 x 12, scored at 5 1/4 and 6 5/8.  I punched a circle for the ribbon tie, but you could use any shape.  And of course […]

Here’s another version of the matchbook mini-album from our monthly demonstrator magazine.  Again, I used the Gently Falling stamp set, Spice Cake DSP and matching buttons that I earned from the new minicatalog.  The dimensions are a little larger this time and the inside pages are tied in with the SU baker’s twine. Cover:  11 […]

Spice Cake

Here’s another card using the Spice Cake Designer Fabric, Hand Penned Holidays and Gently Falling Stamp Sets.  The Vintage Trinket brads add the perfect touch.  I used the SU glue stick to adhere the fabric.

Spice Cake Designer Fabric

 Here I used the Gently Falling stamp set again, with just a strip of the fabric and a button.  Sentiment is from the Hand penned Holidays stamp set.  To get my fabric strips, I just snip the edge with scissors and then rip.  I think the torn edge looks nicer than a cut edge for […]
