Quick Tip Tuesday

Today's tip is using Stampin' Up's Big Shot Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets. Have you ever used this wonderful product? It can be easily overlooked with all the other great things that Stampin' Up! offers. I love these adhesive sheets. They are 12"x12" and 12 sheets come in each package. Here is a quick tip for a cute project I will show you later this week.

I have cut the adhesive sheet and paper to the size I need for my project. Remove the top sheet from the adhesive sheet. Place your paper on the "sticky" side and smooth it out.Now that it is adhered to your paper it is ready to run through the Big Shot.I am using one of the Framelits from the Labels Collection. It is perfect for my project!Once you have your paper cut you can remove the backing from the die-cut shape.Here is the empty jar I will use for my project.Last, adhere the sticky paper to your project, or in my case the jar, be sure to press it firmly so the adhesive covers the entire sha…

Bridal Showers!

I do believe that wedding season is upon us! What a wonderful time of year. I was excited to make this card. I need to make more wedding cards because they are so fun to make!
I made the dress using the Scallop Circle Bigz Die for the Big Shot. I have wanted to try this technique for awhile now. After I ran my paper through the Big Shot and had my scallop circle I snipped away a portion of the scallops on both sides to create a dress. It is so easy! I have seen this idea many times. This dress would also be cute as a princess dress or sweet sixteen dress. I embossed the bottom portion of the dress in my Big Shot, added some flowers and ribbon to the dress and of course I could not forget to add some  rhinestone bling! I also painted Dazzling Details at the top of dress to add more sparkle.

Fox and Friends

I have been going through the Retirement List and setting aside all of my stamp sets that will retire at the end of the month because I have to make room for new ones! Woohoo! I am excited for the new Stampin' Up! catalog to be revealed. Do you want to see the new catalog when it is available? Send me an email with your contact information and I will send you one.
Fox and Friends is one of my favorite stamp sets that is on the retirement list. I love making baby cards with this set. The little animals are very adorable! Who can resist that monkey?

Buttons and ribbon, the perfect embellishment!

Also, here is a quick wrap of my April Photo A Day pictures!

I love participating in this challenge hosted by Fat Mum Slim! As you can see, I spend a lot of my time at little league baseball games! I am also missing the photo for the sunset on day 15, it was rainy that day and I did not see the sun. My daughter has joined in on the fun! She looks forward to looking at the photos each day a…
