Sizzix Movers & Shapers, Bag w/Scallops & Top Note dies

Those are the dies that it took to make this neat little box/bag. The main piece is the Movers & Shapers die, the side pieces are from the bag w/Scallops, and the closure is the Top Note Die. I used a piece of acetate to go over the punched out Curly label. The bag/box itself is Basic Grey Textured C/S and the dsp is from Urban Garden. Pretty cool isn’t it? I wish I could say that I was the original designer, but no, it was Jan Wakeland. Darn, I really want to be one of those people who thinks this stuff up……..I should also mention I used my brand new Butterfly die and Baja Breeze Corduroy Button (Occasions Mini Catalog).

Sizzix Pop Up Dies

Stampin’ Up! has got 6 great videos on their website. Go to this link

to view these great videos. You will see a video on the new Window Sheets in the new mini, Pop Up Cake & Ball dies, Decor Stencils, (did you know we have stencils now) these can be found in the Decor Elements brochure & of course a video on the Big Shot. If you don’t have one of these babies, oh you are so missing out. These make a great addition to our stamps. The possibilities are endless. I use them on my cards, scrapbook pages (I know I haven’t shown you any in a long time…..)and in most of the 3-d items I make. Take a minute (or more) and check out some of my older posts to see all of the cool things I have done with the Big Shot. Don’t forget you can click on the images to make them larger.
