Big Shot Fabric Flowers

These 2 flowers were made with the Big Shot Flower Folds die
on page 201.   When you run quilted fabric through the
Big Shot, it is recommended that you add a piece of printer paper,
to reduce the number of threads produced.

I simply ran the fabric through the Big Shot, layered the
resulting flowers and punched a hole in the middle with
the Crop-a-dial.  Add a coordinating Corduroy button and
pin back.  You can attach your flower to a hat, coat, purse or other
clothing item that needs to be spruced up.  Or, adhere them to a
placemat or display on your table to create a theme.

Happy MLK weekend!

Love Birds

Sorry I haven't posted lately.  Been busy and also had a touch of the flu.

The color is off in this picture, but just could not capture the
Elegant Eggplant cardstock base.   It features the Scallop Trim Corner punch,
(page 11), Extra Large Two-Step Bird Punch (page 11) and Scallop Trim
Border Punch (SAB).  The sentiment is from the Well Scripted set
on page 19 of the Occasions Mini.  Add Pink Satin Ribbon
to finish it off.

Fox and Friends

This is another of my Fox and Friends (Occasions Mini)
series.  This turtle is just so cute.  I omitted a sentiment
so that it can be added for the situation.   You can use this layout
with any small image or sentiment, as long as you have
a packet of Designer Series Paper nearby.
