Teach Me Tuesday: Big Shot Basics

Hey there friends! So I think you’ll be able to tell from today’s post and video that I’m struggling from the Monday-on-Tuesday blues. I’m feeling a little “off” today after coming down with the fastest cold ever last week (seriously, one minute I was fine and then two minutes later I felt like crap). I’m also still trying to sort out what to do/when with my new schedule. I’m having a blast, but still feeling a little discombobulated… Anyway, today, I’m sharing a card I made with the random pieces of cardstock I stamped and cut in this week’s Teach me Tuesday video. I really had no rhyme or reason when I pulled out scrap pieces to demonstrate with, but I figured out a way to make it work. So here is the finished card: Nothing super fancy… just playing with paper. Want to know what is really funny about this card, though (and further evidence that I’m struggling a bit this week??)? Look at how I put this one together: Oopsie… see, I told you I was off today! No worries, I’ll just chop it apart and layer it on a new card. Big Shot BasicsToday’s Teach Me Tuesday

In the Meantime….

Hi there! It’s been a crazy busy, wonderfully hectic weekend! I had three private classes this weekend and of course card class on Monday so I haven’t had a chance to put together my next post about Scrapbooking with Stamps, but I promise I will get there soon! In the meantime, I thought I’d share this valentine card with you. It uses the take it to heart stamp set from the Occasions Mini Catalog. I actually earned it for free as part of a challenge Stampin’ Up issued to demonstrators last fall. I love that about Stampin’ Up…. they are also giving us perks and such. Anyway, this card also uses the new embossing folders and the heart framelits for the Big Shot. It cuts out the heart images in the Take it to Heart stamp set perfectly! I have a few other cards I can show you in between my scrapbooking posts. I’ll be back soon with the next installment of the scrapbooking series. I hope you are having a great week!
