FUN WITH WINDOW SHEETS!

Hi all!! WOW! Wednesday already - doesn't it amaze you how fast the week goes by when you have a holiday at the beginning? Halfway through the week already, sheesh!! So, today I wanted to share a couple of projects I made using the window sheets that Stampin' Up! has - at first I was drawing a blank as to what to use them for, but boy, I have had fun playing with them and learning how versatile they are!! This first project is made using my Big Shot Bigz Scallop Circle die and the window sheets....I am lovin' how easily this machine handles them and how nice they came out!! I decided I wanted to make a mini album using these and it really came together nicely. I also used by Bigz Circle Die for the main backgrounds on each page - I only cut four of the scallops and have an eight page album that is perfect for pictures! Now, since this one isn't mine but is already in the mail to someone, I did not add pics to it, but I am already making another one - LOL! I LOVE this!! I punched a hole, added a ring, and voila! instant album!! This second project is also made using a die for my Big Shot - it's the Pillow Box Die and I just cut it out using the window sheets. Now, this does take some working with as the score lines are not as easy to see, but I just went over them on my Scor-Pal and it was fine. Both of these projects use the Simply Scrappin' Kit Love Stories - remember last week when I told you I was seeing how many projects I could make with one kit? Yep, this is still the product from that same kit.....such a good value as you can do a whole class using just one kit!! I really like this little favor box and plan on making a bunch of these for an upcoming baby shower....I think they will make cute little favor boxes for the guests!! So, now I am off to cut stacks of paper for the workshop I am doing tonight - yep, I left it to the last minute AGAIN - heehee!!! I hope you all have a fabulous day and thanks so much for poppin' in and seeing me, I really appreciate it!!
