Get Creative with the Berry Basket

This Bigz Die is fantastic!  On the surface, it may seem like you can only do one or two things with this die.  While, yes, you can only make a berry basket, you can make so many different versions of it!  Forget the fact that you can choose any color of card stock.  You can put on the handle....or not.  You can use the handle around the top instead of the scallop.  You can use a scallop around the top - and double it up with a coordinating color like I did.  You can use the scallop edges glued together for a handle.  You can emboss the basket with an embossing folder before putting it together.  You can stamp on the basket before putting it together.  All of that and we haven't even discussed embellishments!!  

Can you tell that I just love, love, love this die??

Flower Power

It  took me a second or two to realize the flowers on the cover of the Occassions Catalog were made of paper.  I bought the kit and wanted to have this displayed at my Open House yesterday.  I had fun putting this together.  I will tell you it takes a lot of time to complete and you will have a lot of bonding time with your hot glue gun!  But when it's done, you will have a beautiful vase of flowers that will not wilt or die!

Choose the Road Less Traveled....

I was intrigued by the Adventure Bound Designer Series Paper Stack in the Occasions Catalog.  There are some really pretty sheets.  What's different about this paper stack is that there are sheets with photographs.  The coordinating stamp set, Adventure Awaits is perfect complement to the designer series paper.  And you can save 15% if you both as a bundle! 

Additional Supplies:  Island Indigo & Brushed Silver card stock; Circles Collection Framelits; Neutrals Candy Dots; Versamark & Silver Embossing Powder (along with the compass from The Open Sea stamp set); Black Memento Ink.  (note: The compass embellishment was made using the Faux Metal technique)

Additional Supplies: Mossy Meadow & Vellum card stock; Versamark and Gold embossing powder
