I am loving my new Big Shot! I have only had a couple of quick goes at playing with it! But … I can’t wait until next week … when hopefully I will have a little more time to myself … and more of a chance to play! I did have to make a 50th anniversary card for some dear friends last week … and wanted to show you what a stunning result I got using the Big Shot “Manhattan Flower” Die with vellum cardstock! It worked a treat! Can you see the raissed embossed image in the enlargement above???
Running the vellum through the Big Shot to get the dry embossed flower image only takes a few seconds! Truly! It is super easy to use … and so effective! I cut around the top edge of the image … leaving a tiny edge … and then I added Dazzling Diamonds using my 2-way glue pen. I love this glue pen because you can add a thin line of glue with good control. I also like to add a nice “inside” to any of my special cards!
You will have to keep watching for details of the new Autumn Mini Catalogue. If you would like me to send you a copy I will be posting these out next week … so make sure you email me to request a copy for yourself!
Another baking day for the fair today! 3 batches of Fudge … 1 batch coconut ice & a chocolate cake for the cake stall! Phew! Busy Busy Busy! Will spend a nice quiet night at home … the boys are all at the footy tonight … and the girls are at youth group. But … then we are hosting the YG girls sleepover tonight! And … Sandy is bringing 2 friends who went to the footy with him home to sleep over too!!! I don’t really know what I was thinking!!!??? 😀 I probably won’t get here at all over the weekend! But … I have done a draft with the last two pages for my calendar to show you! I hope you enjoy that one! I will schedule that to arrive tomorrow! I am just FAR TOO KIND to all my blog readers!!! Aren’t I!!!???
