Before I get started with sharing today's photos, I'd first like to extend a very warm welcome to the 3 latest stampers who joined my "Canadians, INK!" team yesterday: Kathy, Mary and Lisa.
I'm very excited that you each made the leap into the land of Demonstratorship, and am sure you're going to LOVE all the great perks Stampin' Up! has to offer you :)
For everyone else, there are only 4 more days to snag the Starter Kits while on sale. Be sure to check out all the deets here and let me know if you have any questions.
Alright, let's get started....
I'm going to focus on cards & projects that were made using the Big Shot ...man, I love that machine and don't know how I ever lived without it. I'd resisted the whole idea of die-cutting for a ridiculous amount of time but when I converted, it was whole-heartedly.
BTW: For those of you in the Toronto area, I'm offering a Big Shot class next Saturday September 5th. Spots are already filling up fast, so be sure to RSVP if you'd like to attend!
Remember how a few days ago I showed you the new Pop-Up Tree die, made into a Halloween tree? Here is it as a Christmas tree this time.
I had a massive "A-HA!" moment when I saw these 2 little boxes stuck back-to-back. Brilliant! You know I now *need* this die as well, sheeeeeeesh.
How stinkin' easy is it to put together a holiday card when you've got the Snowflake die to do all the work for you?
Okay, I fell in love with this "stamp bible"... you know, you stamp your images on sheets and keep them in a binder for handy reference? This stamper used the customizable chipboard album and dolled it all up. I think it's gorgeous!
How about the cool cushions that super-stamper Alesha Walls made? I'm no sew-er, believe me, but even she had me convinced that I could take my hand to some fabric and use my dies to put together gorgeous projects.
Last but not least, I loved how Corinne used the Pennant die and the alphabets to create this banner across the board!
You make me yearn for that Christmas Tree Die - it has to be on my "later" list, since there was so much I wanted "right now"!!:-)
I have Box #2, and the first thing I did was make that double-box (Dawn's Stamping Thoughts showed how) - my hostesses for the year got them filled with all sorts of bric-a-brac (there's an old-fashioned word for you!) and this month we also used the box straight up and filled it with candy (of course)!
Can't wait until I've been good enough to get the 3-D tree!
It was great seeing you at Alicia's Razzle Dazzle Event !!! The display board is mine :) Can you believe I've been a demo 3 1/2 years and this is my FIRST display board !! I'm so glad Alicia pushed me to make one...I'll definitely be using it a lot now !!
Thanks for coming to Alicia's event..I know it meant so much to her and to all of us :)!!
