New Mini Blog Hop

Welcome to the ILWS Mini Blog Hop.


Well if you've followed the blog hop you will have come from the very talented Lindsey.

Well, we have finally got the Big Shot. I made this brooch using the Circles #2 die. I bought this polyester material remment at the local fabric shop and in one pass cut 8 circles each of the four circles on the die. I roughly layered them up and then secured them in the middle with a giant crystal brad. I heated the edges with my heat gun. This curls the edges. When I was happy with the look I glued a pin back to the back of the brad. I made some for my team too.



This Top Note die I think is going to be very popular, it is so versatile. Here is a basket, kindly shown to us by my downline Michele and of course don't throw away the negative. It can be a fabulous frame. Also it fits all of our cello bags, so makes a great topper. The Beautiful Butterflies are just that..beautiful and with our new the embossing folders, the possibilities are endless.

I hope you have enjoyed your stop, next stop is staying in Scotland and visiting the wonderful Evelyn.

Thanks for stopping by.
