The 2016 / 2017 Annual Catalog introduced a number of new ribbons which are absolutely lovely – some of them we have already used in our classes – others are soon to feature!!!!

Like me, I know you would like to get your hands on these ribbons but not to make the investment in a 10 yd bolt of each…. soooooo At LAST I have the ribbon share available.

Stampin’ Up Featured Product ~ BIG SHOT

Oh boy ……………  do I love my Big Shot – from the very first time Stampin’ Up! started to sell it in 2008 to the present day it has been a part of my work bench – close and ready to use when needed.  Over the years the die cutter itself has not changed much but the accessories and dies now available are fantastic offering a whole range of designs and techniques, many of which I have shown in various cards and project on this blog.

So I think it is time to revisit the Big Shot – if you don’t have one you should certainly make the investment – and if you do but it doesn’t get used much – may be this post will encourage you to dust it off – purchase a few new products to use with it and make it your best buddy again!
