Big Shot. I want to be a Big Shot. I love my Big Shot. Hardly a project goes by when I don't use it! Owning one has changed my papercrafting--for the better! Embossing, 3D-ing, Card-making, Die-cutting, quilting, oh I love all the things I can do with it. My friends at Stampin' Addicts (the number one site for stampin' ideas) and I decided to celebrate the Big Shot with a blog hop in it's honor. If you have already been hopping, you may have come from Carmen's blog featuring the Candy Wrapper Die (my second favorite die) or perhaps you are hopping backwards and came from Debra's blog featuring the Petal Cone Die (my third favorite die).
Welcome to all things Milk Carton, my favorite die! Love it! Here's what I made this week with it:
First up is the pumpkin box. I've seen a few around that look similar, although I've had this idea from the moment I got a swap from Carmen (the blog before mine) at Convention. She had this great little treat box and I thought--it's a pumpkin! Inside, a whole bunch of candy corn.
Next up, my flannel birdhouse. The Frostwood Lodge paper called to me with its wood tones and plaids. I knew I wanted to make a birdhouse and this is what I designed!
Finally, the best of the bunch--the gingerbread house.
This was mulling over in my mind for a while. When I went to make it, I realized that I had wayyyyyyy more ideas than would fit on one milk carton. So, I combined two milk cartons to make this extra large holiday decor (filled with peppermints). I used the Jolly Bingo Bits for accents along with my punches and fun papers!
I'll post more details and pictures on my blog Monday, so come back to visit and see more! For now, move on down the blog hop to Debra's blog Heartfelt Inspirations and see all the amazing creations with the Petal Cone Die!
