3D Project/Big Shot Class - Wednesday, July 25

Here are the projects we'll make at the 3D Project/Big Shot class on Wednesday, July 25.  Please let me know if you'd like to join us!!  Just email me at 

These projects were CASEd from Mary Fish....  Another fantastic idea as always!! - thanks, Mary!!

This first part of the project is a super-cute (and perfectly sized) box that will hold 4 cards and envelopes!  See all of the details for this box on Mary Fish's Stampin' Pretty blog.  The cover of the box is made with the International Bazaar Designer Series Paper.  The stamped image is from the Hostess set, Four Seasons, which can only be purchased as a hostess of a party or with a qualifying $150 (or more) order.  Please contact me at if you're interested in purchasing this set!!  We then tied a beautiful Daffodil Delight seam-binding ribbon around the belly-band on the box to finish it off!

The coordinating cards also feature the Hostess set, Four Seasons, and the International Bazaar DSP.  We punched 3 squares with the 1" punch and then stamped those cute butterflies (in Lucky Limeade and Early Espresso) through the windows.  The sentiment, "a gift for you", is from the Bring on the Cake set, a very versatile birthday stamp set.

Scrapbook Class - July 24

Here are the pages we'll make at Scrapbook Class this month on Tuesday, July 24.  Please let me know if you'd like to join us!  Just email me at

I decided to go with a 4th of July theme for July's pages this month!  What do you think??
I really like how they turned out!

This first page features the new Delicate Doilies Sizzlit Die.  I remember as a kid when we would decorate our bikes with crepe paper through the wheels for our neighborhood 4th of July parade - these two doilies kind of look like the wheels on my bike when I got finished decorating them :).

This second page features a banner of flags across the top using Night of Navy and Whisper White card stock and the new Polka Dot Parade Designer Series Paper (the Real Red pattern).  We also used the new Real Red 1/4" Stitched Grograin Ribbon and the Blue 3/8" Denim Jean Ribbon as accents across the bottom of the page.  Just insert your favorite 4th of July memories on these 2 pages, and you're all set!!

Real Red 1/4" Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon

Blue 3/8" Denim Jean Ribbon  125053  $6.95

This third page features a Daffodil Delight base (kind of difficult to tell how bright and cheery this yellow is with my poor photo-taking skills - sorry about that!).  This is a simple page that coordinates with the third page from the June scrapbook spread.  It also features the new Polka Dot Parade DSP with 2" circles cut from the Circles #2 Originals Die with the Big Shot.

Polka Dot Parade Designer Series Paper 

Polka Dot Parade DSP  126902  $10.95

The sentiment, "laughter, by definition, is healthy" comes from the Word Play stamp set.

 Word Play wood-mount  120308  $41.95
Word Play  clear-mount  120651  $28.95

The sentiment is framed on one of the new Apothecary Accents Framelits Dies with the Big Shot and then paper-pierced along the outside edge of the framelit 
with the Essentials Paper Piercing Pack for the perfect final touch.

Apothecary Accents Framelits Die  127003  $24.95

This new paper piercing pack coordinates with many of our Framelits and punches - they make such a great accent to any of these pieces!!

As always, I hope you enjoyed these pages!  If you'd like to join us at Scrapbook Class, we meet the third Thursday of every month.  Just email me at or call me at (989) 330-0259 for more info!  New people are always welcome!  Hope to see you soon!
