Bella Card & Basket

Happy Labor Day!!! Yesterday we had a party at our house with some family and friends and had such a nice day, eating, drinking and visiting. Today were enjoying the beautiful weather, laying low and relaxing, because the kids start back to school tomorrow and with that our daily schedules are crazy.


Today I have something fun to share, I made a card and matching little basket using Dreams du Jour and the Bella designer papers. The fun part is that I used my new Big Shot Machine and the Baskets & Blooms Bigz XL Die to cut out the and make this basket! For those of you who don't know yet, Stampin' Up will be selling the Big Shot die-cutting machine in the up coming Holiday Mini Catalog which starts October 1~January 18, 2009. As a demonstrator I'm lucky enough to be able to pre-order the Big Shot machine along with any of the dies that are available and the Baskets & Blooms die is one I really loved. There are so many things that I can think of to make using this die, like Halloween treat holders, a basket at each place setting for Thanksgiving filled with candy or nuts, Christmas candy holders, Valentine goodies, Easter, the ideas are endless!

Thanks for stopping by and lets all say a prayer for the people who live near the Golf of Mexico and are having to deal with hurricane Gustav.

Very pretty, as usual. I already have a big shot so I'm anxious to see the new dies. Fun stuff!

Beautiful card and basket. This dsp and stamp set are probably my favorites in the new catty. Of course, I haven't received anything else so that is subject to change, lol.

Thanks for sharing. I came for a visit from the blog thread at SCS.

Beautiful card and gorgeous gift bag! That die looks like a MUST have! Do you know if they work in the Cuttlebug...or only the Big Shot?
Sounds like you had a GREAT labor day!
