Christmas Cards

I truly ran out of time this year and wanted to send and give Christmas cards to so many more people than I did and I apologize if you did not get one this year....I guess I need to start the day after Christmas this year...yeah right...probably not going to happen.  But what I came up with wasn't that difficult, or labor intensive, just needed to get them in all prepped for assembly and I think I got 24 of them done.  Anyway, once again, thanks to the Big Shot and embossing folders and dies, it made it alot easier to get those 24 finished.
I hope that you all have a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS and that the NEW YEAR brings prosperity, peace and pleasure to you all!

Fun Flowers Candy Bouquet

I made this candy bouquet for my friend Laura Mellinger for Christmas, and I must say I LOVE these chocolates!  I am surprised that they all made into the Anyway, I had lots of fun making it for her and I hope that she can enjoy the delishness of them! She inspires me so!  I used the stamp set Merry and Type, the Fun Flowers Die and the Beau Cheateau DSP, Silver Glitter Paper, Soft Suede Taffeta Ribbon and the Scallop Squares Duo Die.

Large Rosette Decoration

Okay, so one of the addictions I have when seeing the new minis, catalogs etc. is what is there new for the Big Shot? Well, in the new Ocassions Mini, there was a Rosette die! It makes a 10" rosette, and the HUGE deal cuts and SCORES it for you! Now initally, cutting four peices of cardstock will make a 10" rosette, but can you imagine adding more and getting REALLY big ones? Anywho, I used a bunch of stuff from the Sellabration(which was FREE with purchase) on it and some stuff from the new mini as well, (like the DOILY DIE in the center!) and I must say, that paper is to die for and those brads....I cannot wait to get Sellabration started!
