Big Shot Fun!

It's Black Friday and where am I? Another hotel room. Yep. Bubba got some respite time, so we used it on his favorite time of year....Black Friday. My husband is obsessed. He has been checking the Black Friday websites since Halloween, making and remaking a plan. Last night (Thanksgiving), he left at 11:30 to go shopping at a mall that opens at midnight. Yep. Not me, my husband. There is very little about our relationship that is traditional, but that's why I love him.

What I have I been doing? What every good stamper does...stamp! Well, play!

Yep, I came prepared. Actually, it was the stuff I packed to play with the last week at while away at work, but I finally got time to do it!

Do what? Well, I have been gathering supplies for weeks, maybe months. I have wanted to play with my Big Shot and the Snowflake #2 die (the big one!)

Here's what I did. I don't have enough stuff here (I miss my stamp room) to finish any projects with more embellishments, but simple is good. I used felt, paper bags, and...drum roll, silicone baking sheets! SO FUN!` I love snow, so these babies will be all over my house. I can envision using these as table confetti, added onto card fronts and scrapbook pages, ornaments and more! The luminaries are similar to what Shelli Gardner (SU! founder) showed us at Convention, which hooked me on wanting to buy a Big Shot! I plan to use these around the house...with those fake lights inside.
The blue snowflake is from a Silicone Baking sheet I found at Target. I thought it would be stiff enough for an ornament, but it's a bit floppy. But... the negative image creates a cute place mat!
For my customers, I have a special announcement. If you buy a Big Shot, or the Big Shot bundle (click on the link to right for more details), I will host a class in January and February (2 nights) to play with the materials and ideas that the Big Shot can accomplish! Plus, if your personal order is over $150, you get hostess benefits (free stamps and free stuff). Drop me an email or give me a call to set it up.


  1. Love it! I forgot about her showing us the luminarie idea! Also love your placemat idea. I love it when people think outside the box, even if it wasn't what your first idea was.

  2. Al I want want for Christmas is a new Big Shot, is a new Big Shot. Love all your big shot christmas stuff!
