Hello – Happy New Year everyone – Welcome to 2013!! 

Can you believe it’s the middle of January already?  And this is my first post for the Year.  I hope you all had a lovely Christmas / Holiday break and are looking forward to a year full of exciting crafty projects and challenges.

As for me – I have hardly been in my craft room at all over the last few weeks.  I really only ventured in there to do some much-needed cleaning and organizing.  But now it’s time to get back into it all.  And to start off we (at JAI) have a Blog Hop for you.

Many of you would have experienced a Blog Hop before – but if you haven’t here’s how it works…..There are 13 stops on our Blog Hop (Just Add Ink and 12 of our Design Team members).  The hop is set up in a loop so it doesn’t matter where you start. All you need to do to follow along, is click the link at the end of each post and you’ll be taken to the next stop! 

So here we go…….Just Add – Big Shot Blog Hop.

The Big Shot has opened up a whole new world for me and my projects.  These days I just don’t know how I managed without it.  It is now rare for me to make a project without using the Big Shot in some way.  From Die Cutting to Embossing – the Big Shot is well used around here.

For this project I decided to die cut some Flowers out of Fabric and then use them on a few projects.  I used the Comfort Cafe Fabrics and the Fun Flowers Bigs Die.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I put them together using an Antique Brad (which I love by the way) and then stuck them with some leaves onto a little fabric bag.  I spritz the bag with a Shimmer Paint solution to give it a bit of sparkle.DSC00060

Then to get this ready for giving I decided to make a card too.  I used Card stock that matched the colors in the fabric.  Pool Party, Summer Starfruit and Whisper White.DSC00064   DSC00066

You can see that this card features other elements made with the Big Shot – the Labels Collection Framelits and the Chevron Embossing Folder. 

The Big Shot is such a versatile machine – and I’m sure this Blog Hop will provide you with heaps of ideas.  Now it’s time for you to move onto the next wonderful JAI Design Team Member – Jodene who has another awesome Big Shot project for you.    Follow this link to Jodene’s Blog.

    What a great way to fancy up a bag and it makes a fabulous present paired up with a matching card. Which is gorgeous, love the background stamping adds so much to that fab flower! xxx

    Hmmmm I have been avoiding buying any of the SU material but I just love the comfort cafe and may just have to weaken now. I have never really thought about cutting material with the dies but your bag is lovely so maybe that’s something else I should try.

    Gorgeous, Chantell! The Comfort Cafe fabric is so pretty die-cut with the flower die, and I love what you’ve done with the flowers. Very clever, and practical, gift!
