Free Friday's-January Big Shot Club!

My Big Shot Club girls met in January and we created the following projects:

This is a cute box made with Big Shot products and a few punches. I got the idea from Judy May and changed it to my own colors and elements. We sponged all the layers and elements with Crumb Cake Ink and a Sponge Dauber:

The brad you see for the center of the flower is a Brad & Ribbon Pack you can earn for FREE during Sale-A-Bration:

And the stamped image is a Hostess Set you can earn by having a workshop (call me)!

Project #1 supplies:
  • Cardstock: Whisper White, Calypso Coral
  • Inks: Crumb Cake
  • Accessories: Always Artichoke Seam Binding Ribbon, Everyday Enchantment Ribbon & Brad Set (SAB)
  • Tools: Big Shot Machine, Designer Frames Textured Impressions Folder, Beautiful Wings Embosslit Die, Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Folder, Blossom Punch, Boho Blossom Punch, Lace Ribbon Punch, Sponge Dauber, Fancy Favor Box Die

For project #2, you've seen some of these on my blog before. Use a small jelly canning jar and make a pin cushion out of it. What is nice is that the top screws off and you can store your pins inside:

We used the Big Shot to cut fabric..........you can cut up to 9 layers at a time using cotton fabric:

  1. Wow, this post is packed with great stuff. The handle on your party favor basket caught my eye right away--it's so pretty, I love the lace border punch. That's a perfect calendar too. TFS all your Big Shot projects. Smiles, Elizabeth

  2. Wonderful projects...the box called out to me...great job on all of them!

  3. Wonderful projects, Debbie! Your Big Shot Club gals are lucky to have you as their demo!

  4. Great projects. Where did you get the mini Calendars from?

  5. I purchase the calendars from a website called "Stampin On This"!

  6. Great projects! I love the desktop calendar easel!

  7. Beautiful! I tried going to the website you've stated, for the calendars, and I can't seem to locate it. Would you be able to post the actual site address?

    1. This was 2 years ago and it looks like they may no longer be in business. Sorry!
