SIMPLE & SUBLIME...

This card is soooo simple - but perhaps has just enough style to be added to the sublime category...

2fold1 

I love making cards with this fold. The standard card size is 8-1/2" x 4-1/4".  The two fold lines are at 2-1/8" from both sides...

 2fold4

The focal point on this card is made with the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine and the Fun Flowers Bigz L Die...

2fold2 

But I wanted to round the pointed petals to more accurately match the print on the Beyond the Garden Designer Series Paper...  Just a simple snip-snip with the Paper Snips did the job...

2fold3

TAKE A SPIN...

The Take a Spin Stamp Set reminds me of my weekend... I had moments when I felt like I was going round and round in circles...

Picture1 
Actually, even though exceptionally busy, my weekend was marvelous, astonishing, admirable and unusually good... See the spinner hands are almost pointing to it...

Picture2 

It was also caring, loving, gentle and nice...

Picture3 

I have some great cards to show you this week,

after I catch my breath today.

I L.O.V.E. MY BIG SHOT...

I wanted to wear this skirt to church on Palm Sunday, but it was too long, almost to the floor.  So I got my scissors out and cut off about eight inches.  Then with my seldom-used sewing machine, I changed the hemline to a more desired length...

Skirt1 
The leftover piece of fabric was sooooo pretty.  (Here's a sample.)  I didn't want to throw it out...

Skirt2  

... so I used my Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine, along with my Flower Folds Bigz XL Die, and made this lapel flower... 

Skirt3 
It is held together with an Antique Brad.

Skirt4 

There are dozens of ways to use a Big Shot.  You can cut paper, vinyl, fabric, chipboard, cork sheets, wood sheets, and more!  It is the perfect cutting tool for so many of your home and family projects.  I L.O.V.E. my Big Shot!
