Everyone needs a little magic…

During convention my Stampin’ Family always has a little reunion and our awards dinner. While we wish more of our family could be there, it is such a fun night together! This July we ate at Tucano’s in Salt Lake City and I made “Magic Wands” for each of the guests (because everyone needs a little *magic* when they are creating…)
 I used the Razzleberry Splash Simply Scrappin’ Kit (Item #126930) which isn’t just for scrappin’, as you can see! Using the Big Shot (Item #113439) and the Designer Rosette Bigz Die (Item #125594), I made the rosettes. Add a little ribbon and some fairy dust (a.k.a. Iridescent Ice embossing powder) and you can make all your crafting dreams come true, with just a swish of your wand!

Here’s hoping you’ll spread a little magic today by sharing something you’ve created with others!

Summer Lollies: Picture Perfect

I’m pretty excited about this fun project we are making today at the Big Shot Class! These “Lollies” or “Medallions” are created with the Designer Rosette Bigz XL Die (item 125594) and the Big Shot (obviously) and when I was trying to figure out what to put on them, my husband suggested pictures of the kids! And it turned out adorable (mostly because I have pretty adorable kids)! Of course, if you know my kids, you can see that these pictures were taken a LONG time ago~giggle~But the fun thing about this project is that you could switch out pictures anytime to keep it “fresh”…and these pretty poppies don’t need watering!

I found the sugar shaker at Dollar Tree and it works perfectly for keeping the skewers in place 🙂 then I “upcycled” some old magazine pages along with some scraps of card stock that match the new Patio Party Designer Series Paper (item 126916) to fill the shaker base. You could also fill it with candy or marbles or SPRINKLES!!!

Such fun, such fun…and if you missed the Big Shot Class today, I’ll be teaching another one (3 new projects) in August, so watch for the announcement and register early 🙂
