The Stampinup exclusive Bigz Die has so manypossibilities. The die that I recently crafted as a round bottom that attaches to it but instead I scraplifted this idea from Jody Morrow who scraplifted it from Tandra . I sewed the bottom closed instead and what a cute idea. Jody referred to it as a fabulous handbag. Cute! Cute! Cute!

Some Layouts I finished

This layout uses chipboard that I painted yellow( the word "smile") and a brad that I made to match my border below. It also uses some sparkly chipboard that I purchased and some other chipboard that I made using my Sissix machine. The flower is an artificial one that i took apart from a grouping of flowers. The hearts are also self-made chipboard that I cut out using my Cuttlebug and a Cuttlebug die. And the cutie in the pic is my only grandchild.(Yipeeeeeeeeee!)

Here are some layouts I've been working on. This layout has a garden theme because on occasion I like to get in the yard and so some planting. I used some chipboard letters that I've had forever and a new circle journaling stamp. The silhouette image is a free .svg file(can't remember which site I got it from though, sorry) and the flower embellies are also from the same chipboard letter collection.Next, I decided to use some of my metallic CS and my new gadget------- The BradMaker. I love this thing. It easily transforms any of your CS or fabric into a brad to match your projects. Some say it's just a covered button maker and maybe so but I think it is designed perfectly for its intent. So ladies if you want to use your old button maker go ahead, I'm keeping my bradmaker.LOL. The font on the layout is using the SCAL program and a free font that I downloaded. Last but not least,
