The Big Shot Plus offers you everything you love about the Big Shot — PLUS the versatility to use 8 1/2 x 11″ materials! You will LOVE the 9 inch opening! This machine has a sleek white and gray color scheme and the Sizzix logo embossed on the handle. The Big Shot Plus Die-cutting Machine offers plenty of stylish appeal with the same versatility of working with the all the Sizzix products (with the exception of Bigz Pro dies) including their smallest Embosslits to their new 9″ wide plastic-backed dies (coming soon). It also goes along well with the Sizzix embossing tools. Just like the standard sized Big Shot, this portable roller machine cuts and embosses many different materials.

Sizzix Fold-A-Long Cards

Thursday, April 30th, 2015

Cards that have different shapes or folds are so fun but they are much nicer to make when there is a die that can cut them for you instead of you needing to measure and score and cut and figure it all out yourself.  Simpler is so much nicer and much less stressful.

P1150043

This week I’m using Sizzix’s Fold-A-Long Thinlits dies to make my cards.   This set comes with six dies that cut the card base, the decorative inside element and three tag pieces.  In the card above I used Graphic 45‘s Artisan Style collection with the dies.  I fussy cut the peacock from the paper to make my plain yellow envelope pop a little and give a sneak peek of what the card will be.  The die cut card accordion folds on both sides to meet in the middle.  I again fussy cut the flowers and dragon fly from the paper collection, ran them through my Xyron sticker maker, placed them on black cardstock and recut them leaving a small border around them.  The flowers and dragonfly intertwine to hold the card closed.

P1150033

Here’s a view for you from the top showing the decorative mats and the way it folds.  In order to get the mats I cut my decorative paper with the card base die in the set and then trimmed the pieces to fit.  In the video below I’ll show you how to use the die and how to cut and fold it and the mats to create the Fold-A-Long card.  The card starts with a 12″ x 6″ piece of cardstock for the base and folds to a standard A2 size.

P1150042

This card used an older Graphic 45 collection, Curtain Call, any collections that you have on hand that has several 12×12″ sheets will do you for these cards with matching envelopes.  I found it much easier to place the card die and paper I’m wanting to cut on my Sizzix Magnetic Platform.  It holds everything in place snugly to prevent a shift as you cut.  Since this die is placed on the fold of your paper to create the card it’s great to have that extra help.  I used the Angel Craft tapes and podge to adhere my papers together.  I love using the Podge as a glue since it dries quickly and leaves no wrinkles or puckers in your papers.  One thing I did have to do with some of the papers before folding or scoring was to lightly spritz them with water. Since the decorative papers I used tended to be on the heavier side I didn’t want to take a chance on the paper splitting as I folded or scored it, the water just helps expand the fibers a tad and helps prevents those awful cracks.

Here’s a sneak peak of the other examples you’ll see on the video.  I sure hope you’ll try this die set and make some Fold-A-Long cards for yourself.

A list of the supplies I used from the store, with links, will be directly below the video.

If you have a moment I’d love for you to visit my personal blog or Facebook page.  You can find me at A Soul’s Heartbeat.

Thanks and Happy Scrappin’!

Bigz XL Gift Card Box

Friday, April 17th, 2015

Karen N here today sharing a couple projects I made using the Bigz XL Gift Card Box Die.  As Winter moves towards Spring, all sorts of gift giving events come along – Mom’s Day, Dad’s Day, graduations, etc.  It’s easy to give a gift card, and it’s super easy to dress up your gift cards with this cool tool!  I purchased the extended cutting plates that are available at Cut@Home, but you could use this die with your regular plates if you did three cuts.

I show you how to create the boxes on this video:

My first box uses Spellbinders Celebra’tions Prints and the uber-cute Penny Black Birthday Party Stamps.

CAH-box1

I water colored the image and cut it and a border with Spellbinders Labels Eight on my Big Shot.  I used the FABULOUS Angel Craft Tape in 1/4″ size to hold the box together and added a couple flowers.

I did a second box using Heartfelt Creations Majestic Morning Paper Collection.  The label is fussy-cut from that collection as well.  On this box, I fussy cut out the sentiment and attached it with some twine.  Because the paper is double-sided, I cut some plain green paper to fit on the inside of the box.  So easy, so cute!

I hope you will enjoy this new collection by Jen Long as much as I do. Something I should mention is this collection is VERY popular and my Sizzix Rep informed me a few days ago some of the items are on back order. I don’t know which ones, so order what you want and we will let you know as soon as we find out.

Happy Scrappin!
