What a BIG SHOT!!

Okay, I finally splurged during Sell-A-Bration and ordered myself a Big Shot die cut machine. Now, mind you, and don't tell my husband, I have TWO die cut machines already (a Cricut and a QuicKutz). Both are gathering dust. The Cricut has only been used once. Too much bother and too many settings to jiggle with. And the QuicKutz needs some serious muscle.

But this Big Shot is FUN to use, and easy, and good for the weak muscled. I love it, and so far my friends do too! The top card uses the Top Note and some flowers; the bottom card uses Top Note with colored cardstock. Don't forget that you can stamp on colors other than white!!

The above card uses a die cut flower with those CUTE floral brads in the new SU catalog. Simple card with big impact. The bottom card uses the Top Note layered! The die cut has a stitched border that can be cut away and then you can layer it on another Top Note. . .isn't that clever??
This last card uses the birdie die cut with the little wing that attaches separately. Totally cute. And the top border is punched with the new Eyelet Border punch. So many things I have to have!!
