This was my first attempt at using the Mini Catalog set “And Many Mower”.  I used the Stampin’ Up! Texturz Backgrounds #1 to create a golfball look.  In addition, the tag was cut with the Stampin’ Up! Lots of Tags Sizzlit pack.

Here’s a project from our 3rd Big Shot Class.  It uses that great Pennant die.  Stamp Set used was A Little Birdie Told Me… 

Pocket Card

Die:  Pennant Die

  1. When cutting the 2 pennants from the Designer Paper, be sure to place the two sides you want showing on the card face-to-face or they will not cut the right way.  Also, watch how you lay the birds as you do not want them to come out upside-down.
  2. To attach the pennants, fold on the dotted line and place a strip of adhesive on the tab and a very thin strip of adhesive along the bottom.  Attach to the front of the CS.

Scallop Circle Cards

Stamp Set:  Just Buzzin’ By

Die:  Scallop Circle

To create a scallop circle card, fold 1/2 sheet of CS in half.  Then place the folded cardstock on the die so that it doesn’t complete cover one small section of the scallop.  This will create the card fold.

Here’s another example using my new favorite flower set, Fifth Avenue Floral.  Colors used were Baja Breeze, Old Olive and Chocolate Chip.

I’ve been very bad about updating this blog…my sincerest apologies!  I really hope to do better in the days to come.  I wanted to thank everyone for helping me to earn the trip to Hawaii from Stampin’ Up!  I just got back last Saturday and I must say, it was absolutely fabulous.  Please know that I really do appreciate all of your support and your business.  Thought I would share a few of my trip pictures with you.
