Big Shot and other fun stuff I've made today :D

So I've spent today playing with my new toys!!
Here are some of my samples for today.

This is my first Big Shot card.  I CASE'd the sample from a card I saw on the Stampin' Up! demo discussion board, Stampin' Connection.  There are a bunch of samples like this so I won't like all the creators - but I won't claim to be the creative brain behind this one.

This card used the Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder  and the Punch Bunch Sale-a-Bration stamp set.  I also used some retired ribbon and cardstock.

This card also features Punch Bunch using the Square Scallop Punch. This uses Pacific Point cardstock and ink, Old Olive 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon as well as Basic Black cardstock.
This card is based on the same theme as the Happy Birthday card above again using Punch Bunch.  This card also features what are my current obsession - Rhinestones.   I love them, they're on almost every project I do if I can possibly get away with it.  They add so much and they're super deal.  This card is in Tempting Turquoise and Basic Black.  

 Same card as above but in Concord Crush. The blue is retired from a couple of years ago - I just loved the way they looked together.
I don't love this card, but it's a first try.  This uses the Manhattan Flower Textured Impressions Embossing Folder as well as Stampin' Pastels and Smooch Spritz.
This card I adore.  This uses the Birthday Bakery hostess set.  Again I used my rhinestones :)

I also used a Versamarker to emboss the cake plates.  I'm not 100% happy with how they came out but I think it adds a little something something.

I'm still playing - I have lots more cards to make in the next few weeks.  The Fresh Fish craft fair is coming up in St. John's and my sister and I plan to have an amazing table!

It's here it's here it's here!  I was a little worried because we got an end of March snowstorm today - possibly the most snow we've had all winter - gotta love it.  But a little after 5pm the UPS man showed up with my magical boxes.  I love my big shot, my boyfriend thinks I'm crazy because I'm so happy playing with it.  I have to get my drafting table/stamping desk organized so I can be efficient and rock out some great samples for you.

My new items include

-Stampin' Pastels
-Top Note Die
-Embossing Folders
-Everything Nice stamp set
-Punch Bunch - FREE SAB SET
-Happy Together - FREE SAB SET
 and lots lots more :D

Stay tuned.

Tomorrow, Tomorrow!

My boxes have arrived in Windsor On!  Hopefully they're still going to be delivered tomorrow!  I made a couple cards last night, I'll take pictures later.  I'm a little distracted today, my friend had a little boy in December a little more than 3 months premature - he's a fighter but he's got a big day ahead of him so we're all send love and happy thoughts out to her and her little family.  If those of you reading this can take a moment and think happy thoughts for baby Felix I would appreciate it!

Stampin' Love!

Can't wait for Wednesday

My order will be here Wednesday!!  I'll have my Big Shot!  I am SOOOOOO excited.  I'm busy planning projects for the Fresh Fish Five craft fair in St. John's NL.  My sister and I are going to have a great display!

On a side note - I just got a preview of the Summer mini!  I'm super excited about that too - lots of great new products coming.  I'm not supposed to order anything else - I am still on a budget - but I'm going to have to take advantage of the pre-order!

Keep checking back, there will be lots of new projects coming VERY soon!

I'm still here...

Wow - I didn't realize how long it's been - I'm still here, sorry I've been busy on the job hunt (and nearing the end of my supplies).  BUT it was just my birthday which means I have some money to spend on new toys for me (gotta love family members who give you $$$ - and I have a very generous family).

I just placed my Happy Birthday to ME order today and guess what I'm getting......THE BIG SHOT!  I can't wait.  I've got 2 embossing folders, 2 dies and a letterpress coming to use with it!  Be prepared for some great new projects.

My sister and I are also entering a spring craft fair in May meaning I have to get to work.  And speaking of work - I'm no longer unemployed!  I start my new job at the end of the month (and just in case I have another interview this week!)

I'll be stalking front door impatiently waiting for my new probably won't arrive until Tuesday next week (if the past is any indicator) but hopefully I can last until then - at least I didn't order any food named products this time (i don't think) so I shouldn't have any border troubles (customs doesn't like our Cherry Cobbler etc...)

Well that's all for now, I promise to post more soon and I'll have some fantastic new products to show soon!
