Bottom line - I'm stepping back from everything that I THINK has to be done right this nanosecond and realizing it can wait a few more hours. Yes, I STILL have to finalize the cards for Sunday's Stamp-a-stack and yes, there are 100 other projects that have been started but not finished but it's ok ... it doesn't all have to get done today. Heck - if I WAS all done today I don't know what I'd do with myself tomorrow! So cheers (coffee clink) and here's a FUN little project for you. I whipped up 26 of these in under an hour on the weekend ...
Mary Fish (stampinpretty.com). In her video she says to use two of the silicone rubber mats but I didn't have to so what I did was 1) open your Big Shot platform all the way (i.e. flip both tabs open). 2) Place your hard Impressions Pad down, then your Silicone Pad down. 3) place your paper down 4) place your Labels Framelits down WITH THE BUMPY SIDE UP - the bumpy part is what normally CUTS your paper - you don't want it to cut your paper so face the bumps up 5) Place your clear cutting pad down 6) run the whole kit and kaboodle throught he Big Shot. Wa-low! You get an embossed image. VERY cool! I then stamped in the middle of the design with With All My Heart (page 47 of the IBC ... a very overlooked set .. I think this one is a keeper!). I then added a brad from the SAB brads to jazz it up a bit. This is such a great, elegant, easy and QUICK technique! Try it out - you'll want to make 26 too!
Right. I''ve now had a realxing 26 minutes of coffee and blogging. I'm going to finish my coffee, get the children and maybe craft a little. I have more projects from this week to share so come bacl soon. ... bring a coffee ... I have been known to ramble on every now and then ;)
Have a realxing day!
