Round 2, Big Shot Classes: Top Note, Bird & Scallop Envelope

This past fall I did my first round of Big Shot classes.  They consist of 4 classes - one a month.  The beauty of these classes is, you can start them at any time!  If you start with class #3, then you'll take #4, then #1 & 2.  The objective for completing the classes is that you are more comfortable with the Big Shot machine and have had a chance to most of the different types of dies.

Last week I started my second round of classes for the Big Shot.  I actually had one gal sign up to take all four classes again!  The projects will be different each round due to new products and seasonal projects. 

Class #1 will always focus on the Stampin' Up! Top Note and Scallop Envelope dies.  These are fabulous dies and have a variety of uses that make them a must have!



Isn't this Top Note Bag gorgeous?  Here's some tips: 

  • Cut two Top Note Dies and attached them to a cut down mini paper bag. 
  • Extra Large Oval punch was used to punch out handles.  
  • Heart image from the FREE Sale-A-Bration "Polka Dot Punches" set was stamped and punched with the Full Heart punch.  
  • Greeting is from the FREE "Yummy" Sale-A-Bration stamp set.   
  • Ribbon is the beautifully soft Organza Ribbon
  • Colors are Whisper White and Sahara Sand 


This is an envelope pouch with 3 Scalloped Envelopes/Gift Cards.  Just cut out your 3 scallop envelopes with the Big Shot, using Designer Paper and Scallop Envelope Die (be sure to use the crease pad with this die).  The DSP is the super cute Delicate Dots, FREEif you place a $50 order during Sale-A-Bration (Feb 1-Mar 31).  Each mini envelope has a gift enclosure card in them.  The pouch is made from a medium envelope sealed and cut in half, border punched with the Scallop Edge Border Punch.  The ribbon is also a FREE Sale-a-Bration choice!


I've been wanting to use this bird die as "Love Birds" and when I saw a card on Kay's blog (a fellow demonstrator) - I was inspired.  Again I used the Organza Ribbon (love, love, love this ribbon)!  Plus a couple of punches: Heart to Heart and the Eyelet Border.  The birds are from the Birds and Blooms Sizzlet 4 pack.  This die comes with the Big Shot starter kit or can be purchased separately.  The greeting on this card is from the FREE Sale-A-Bration stamp set "Congrats".

Join me at my next Big Shot class on March 18th.  Details and fee schedule can be found here.  You do not have to be a club member to attend this class.  It is open to any and all who want to learn more about the Big Shot!  However - if you want to be a Big Shooter Club Member and receive membership privileges - click here!
