Sweet Dreams Banner

I made this Sweet Dreams Banner for a baby gift using my
Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine.
I cut the flag pieces with the Perfect Pennants Die.
I use the Paper-Piercing Tool to dig the small pieces out of the die.

Then used the Elegant Bouquet Embossing Folder to add texture.

I used my Simply Scored Scoring Tool to make the rosettes.

Scoring a full sheet of Designer paper then cutting it into strips and gluing them together with Crystal Effects to create my rossets.

I punched out some pink butterflies using the new Elegant Butterfly punch.
Scoring them first before punching them made it easier to fold the wings up.

Then punched some scalloped circles using the new 1-1/4" Scallop Punch,
spritzed them with water and scrunched them into flowers
Once dry they become very stiff.
I layered Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose and Pink Pirouette to give my flowers some depth.

I punched scalloped borders for the top of the flags with the Scallop Edge Border punch.

I assembled it with ribbon, added some Designer Buttons and letters I cut with the
New Typeset Alphabet Bigz Die.

I also added some pearls to the butterflies and linen thread bow to the buttons.
I used the new Bitty Banners Framelits with the coordinating stamp set - Itty Bitty Banners to create the "Sweet" in my Sweet Dreams.

Quick Fall Treat Tags

A friend asked me last week if I would make some of my holiday popcorn for a fund raiser. I make and sell this popcorn in December but made an exception for the cause.
So, I collected the ingredients and spent yesterday making popcorn. I make cute Christmas gift tags for the holidays but for this I needed something quick. 
These simple fall leaf tags were so easy using my Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine and the new Autumn Accents Bigz Die and fall colored card stock.
I used my Personalized stamp with my Stampin' Up! business info i.e. My name, web address, email and phone number. I then punched holes and tied them on with twine. This was so easy - I made forty tags in less than ten minutes - If only it was that easy and fast to make the popcorn - never mind - that would be too dangerous.

I also made this adorable box to wrap it in using the Simply Scored Scoring Tool and the Simply Scored Diagonal Scoring Plate. It fits perfectly in the large box pattern featured Here


Using the directions on the Fabric Adhesive Roll, I ran the fabric with adhesive through the Big Shot Die-Cutting machine and the Beautiful Butterflies Bigz Die, then ironed the butterfly to the onsie.
