Making Pins wih the Big Shot!

The last project we made in the Big Shot Class were pins. You can put up to 8 layers of fabric through the Big Shot! We used the Stampin' Up! Flower Folds XL Bigz Die. We die cut 2 layers each of the 3 smallest flowers. We staggered them and tacked them together with needle and thread. The centers are corduroy buttons.

Big Shot Class - Cards

I just love all of the things we can make with the Big Shot! Cards are a snap!


I just love how the Movers & Shapers Die coordinates with our punches! The white star is texturized with the Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Folder.



To make this card, place a piece of folded card stock on the Scallop Square Clear Die. Make sure the card stock is covering three of the four sides. You want the fold at the top of the card. We finished this card with the Sweet Pea designer series paper and the greeting punched with the Word Window Punch layered on the Modern Label Punch. Literally, it took less then 5 minutes to make this card!

Detroit Tiger Opening Day!

Friday was the Home Opening Game for the Detroit Tigers. We have season's tickets so for us, this is a holiday! (smile) It was a "balmy" 38 degrees when the first pitch was thrown and climbed up to 40 by the end of the game! The Tigers gave us a win so it was well worth it!
