I made this card for my sisters birthday, I was only about 3 weeks late. Is that still fashionably late? I hope so. I did call her on her birthday. Anyway one of my wonderful customers had brought a printout of this card that she had found on SCS (here is the original http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/1067578?cat=14649) to open stamping night. I wanted my card not so red and green so I went with the Bella Rose DSP.

We had a surprise birthday party for my MIL the weekend before last. I made 40 of these little baskets and placed them around the centerpieces. Again, I used my Big Shot with the Baskets & Blooms Bigz XL Die. I used Bella Rose DSP, matching ribbon and Rhinestone Brads. These were very easy to cut. I just folded a 12" x 12" piece of paper in half and ran it through the BS. Assembling took a little longer, these can be a little tricky. I did find using sticky strip is the best way to hold them together. Everyone loved them (they were filled with kisses).

OMG! As most of you know, I have so far been the queen of CASE (copy and share everything), until now. About a month ago I took a class with Karen English to make these great little accordion books. I took her idea and designed this FABULOUS (I must say) little Halloween Photo Album. This picture does not do it justice, you must see it for yourself. I am sooooo proud of this. And I must also say that I love my Big Shot. The kitty in the pictures is my oldest on her first Halloween. Yes, I made the costume. You didn't know I could sew too did you? Okay, I really can't, that costume took me way longer to make than it ever should have. I am so glad I ended up finding my niche.
