New Magnetic Platform for our Big Shot, Framelits and Edgelits…..Available in the New Catalog Today Starting at Noon

Magnetic Platform item #130658

We are excited to show you a new product called the Magnetic Platform. It is designed to use with your Big Shot for Framelits and Edgelits. When you use the Magnetic Platform, you will not need your Multipurpose Platform. You will still need to use the Standard Cutting Pads. The great thing about the Magnetic Platform is that the magnets are so strong; they will allow you to use the Magnetic Platform with your Standard Cutting Pads, which protects it. You will especially love using the Magnetic Platform with your stamp sets that have matching Framelits. Once you have stamped the images, you can lay the paper on the clear cutting pad and the Framelits will easily attract to the magnets in the platform holding the Framelit safely in place, and lining it up to the image – right where you need it. The Magnetic Platform can also be used with Edgelits. They are so fun, but can be frustrating to try to keep them straight as they run through the Big Shot. You can rig up a solution, like post-it notes, but if you have the Magnetic Platform you won’t need to. You can line up the Edgelit anywhere on your project that you want and send it through your Big Shot with confidence that the cut will be in exactly the right place. Thanks for watching today, as you can see the Magnetic Platform is an essential addition to your Big Shot collection.

Happy Birthday

Hi Everyone

How’s it going today. I went to church this morning and they honored the veterans. Some of the little kids made cards for the vets. I ended up with 3 cards. They were so cute. I served 4 years in the Air Force. Not going to say when, since it was a long time ago.  I am still planning on that BBQ  tomorrow. The high for today is 69, but the high for tomorrow is 75 – perfect for grilling.

Today’s card is a spring/summer card. Lots of butterflies. I just love butterflies and things that sparkle. Like my card today has butterflies that sparkle. I used Dazzling Details – the one in the bottle – on the butterflies and then I painted it with a paintbrush. I sprayed the card with Frosted White Shimmer Spray that also makes it sparkle.  You can see for yourself how the card just sparkles.

Thanks So Much

Hi Everyone

Woo hoo – 3 day weekend. What does everyone have planned for this weekend. Anyone doing anything special? If the weather is nice – I plan on having a BBQ with just my husband and I. I think it would be fun to sit outside and eat. If it’s still cold, guess we will eat inside.

Well, on to today’s card. I made the background paper using versa mark, a stamp set (Papillion Potpouri), and Smokey Slate card stock. I just love the Natural Composition paper that is retiring and I don’t have any, so I decided to make my own. I think it turned out really nice.

Woohoo – Today’s card.

I wanted to play with the washi tape. I hope I didn’t go overboard. Naw, it’s not too much. I wanted to just slap it on anywhere. Now that’s an idea for a card. I just might do that. Any how’s – here’s today’s card.

Oh, Hello

Hi Everyone

How are you today? I am so thankful that I do not live in Oklahoma City. I have been praying for them ever since I heard about the tornado this morning. My heart goes out to all of them. I am really in shock over what happened. Wandering around in a daze even though I do not have any family there and I do not know anyone that lives there. I can not comprehend what everyone is going through and feeling. It’s just so devastating. My prayers go out to them.

I have a fun card for you today. Love the flowers. I have put some flowers out in the yard that a neighbor has given me. I don’t know anything about flowers. Now – tomato plants – I can grow. I love home grown tomatoes – love to pick them off the vine and eat them. mmmm yummy  Not so sure about flowers. We will see how they turn out. Maybe I do have a green thumb for flowers.

You Make Me Smile

Hi Everyone

Today has been busy. Went downtown to the Old Spaghetti Warehouse for a Stampin’ Up meeting with the locals (fellow demonstrators). We got to do some make and takes, a card swap, and eat some scrumptious food. yummy. I had such a good time getting out with everyone. It all ended too soon. Then I had to come home and do my grocery shopping for the next two weeks. Yuck, how fun is that?

Well, on a happy note, today’s card is made out of scraps that I had laying around. It started with the two pinwheels that I had already made up and some butterflies that were punched.  The pool party was embossed with the Stripes Embossing Folder. I then turned the paper and embossed it again making the basket weaving effect, I then sanded the top of the card.  All in all, I think the card turned out good.

Hi Everyone

Wow, I just love today’s card. It is also a case job. I got this idea from Connie Stewart. You can see her card and video on how to make the card here. Of course, I didn’t use the same stamps or colors, but the layout is the same. I must say – beautiful card.
