BIG Announcement!!!

Hello Everyone

IT'S HERE! The brand new UK Mini Catalogue from Stampin' Up! is here - and it contains something BIG!

The new big thing from Stampin' Up! in Europe is the Big Shot die cutting machine. Yay!

The Big Shot is a sturdy manual die cutting machine which can be used to die cut materials for use on crafts, home d├ęcor projects, and even clothing. We at Stampin’ Up! are very excited about it and you’ll love what the Big Shot machine can do for you!

Die cuts are an easy way to create elaborate-looking shapes and projects with minimal effort, and they look amazing on whatever project you're working on.

You will also appreciate the exclusive dies you can get in Stampin' Up!'s range - so you can always find coordinating products.

There are so many wonderful things you can create using the Big Shot, I hardly know where to start! I have been having SO much fun creating with it and will be sharing lots of projects over the weeks to come.

Today's project uses two of the 24 available dies, (18 of these, including the two below are exclusive to Stampin' Up!)

This card features the beautiful Top Note die that creates that fabby Real Red background - the Big Shot cuts and creates the stitching effect around the edge. I also used the wonderful Fun Flowers die - how beautiful is that flower? And SO easy to cut with just one turn of the Big Shot handle! The stamps are both from Notably Ornate, stamped in Soft Suede ink.

So if you are reading this and want to know more - why not book a workshop or come to one of my classes? The Big Shot will be featuring at them all.

Now there are also lots of other exciting goodies in the mini catalogue - you can see it now online here or contact me for your own copy to flip through!
