Big Shot Scrapbooking

Using your Big shot with Scrapbooking Using a 12 x 12 crumb cake card stock. Usingin an A4 crumb cake card stock and rip along the top and bottom. Then place card into the cutter as in photo and cut. Then Using the Elegant Bouquet Embossing Folder on one corner as in the photo. Then Using the versa Marker on each flower and then using a sponge daber and the Stampin' Pastels

Using the Brights DSP Ihave used the Pumkin Pie by ripping it and placing it onto the Crumb Cake to one side and a 2cm strip to the other side then place your Crumb Cake corner to the top left hand side. Then with an A4 sheet of Soft Suede do the same as the Cuumb Cake A4 and place this to the bottom right hand side then the other way around for the second layout.

Using the Big Shot and the Blossom party Die in two or three colors and also two leaves from the Sizzlit Die little leaves. Using a sponge dauber and highlight with the pastalsas in the photo. Place Dimensionals on theback of the flower and place onto your layout.

Cut out your mats to fit your photo and snail to your layout I really love this layout as you can have and way you like and it looks great. Hope you enjoy making something like or the same just have fun.
