Sizzix Sneak Peak

What exciting news this was!!! I am thrilled that Stampin' Up! has partnered with Sizzix. There are so many beautiful and fun projects you will be able to create with your Sizzix. Plus, there will be dies that are exclusive to Stampin' Up! and will coordinate with our stamps sets and other products.

Here are some teasers. :)

This is the apron that Shelli wore on stage to make the announcement about the Big Shot and to demonstrate items made with the exclusive dies. The apron is made with fabric using the exclusive Baskets and Blooms Bigz die, the Pennant Bigz die, and the Scallop #2 die.

Here is a Baby Shower set that she put together using the Big Shot die cutting machine and SU's exclusive shapes. Isn't this to "die" for! :)

Using the exclusive Pennant die and the Scallop #2 die, with the new Bella Rose DSP, to make accessories and gifts for the Baby Shower.

How about a home decor element. This is an adorable panel decorated with shapes from the Sizzix Big Shot and SU exclusive dies. I thought this was absolutely gorgeous and so full of detail.

This would be a great temporary decoration for a rental home or college dorm, or as a permanent fixture in your home.

The Sizzix Big Shot will be available for purchase beginning September 2nd.

Create fun and exciting treat holders that can be customized for any type of birthday, school or holiday party.

Make your kids "designer" clothes for only pennies. It's so easy, even the kids can do it themselves!!

Holiday ornaments and decorations!!

Don't you just LOVE all these fabulous ideas? And, there are soooo many more. Can you tell how excited I am about this product?! I can't wait to get mine and get started. The possibilities are truely endless, and guess what, you can even use it for your cards and scrapbooking! ;) Not everything needs to be an elaborate project. The Sizzix Die cutting system can take you from the easiest of projects to more elegant home decor pieces.

Still not sure if the Sizzix Big Shot is right for you? Then attend a class or two I will be holding in September and try before you buy. Watch for dates and projects to be posted in a couple weeks.

Weather Issues

I want to apologize for no convention posts today. The storm that we had go through our area last night was too intense to be working on the computer.

I will be uploading photos this evening for you to view, and passing on some fun information that I learned at convention.

Thank you for your patience!!!

Love & Happiness

This is my first attempt at a triangle tri-fold card. They are a lot of fun, and actually pretty easy to make.

This one measures 4" x 4" complete. I used a 4" x 12" piece of Purely Pomegranate cardstock and scored at 4" and 8". The center pieces are Purely Pomegranate, Close to Cocoa and Pretty in Pink. The triangle shaped pieces are from the Berry Bliss Designer Series Paper pack.

I stamped the Pretty in Pink piece using Close to Cocoa and a stamp from One of a Kind. Then stamped it again on Whisper White in Basic Brown, and colored it in with an aqua painter and Pretty in Pink and Purely Pomegranate ink.

After cutting out the Whisper White piece, I used the Crop-A-Dile to add the Jumbo Eyelet. It was then mounted on dimensionals.
