We were having such fun cutting out snowflakes that we decided to try the Textured Impressions embossing folder, Northern Flurry, shown here on Cherry Cobbler card stock.
Next we tried the Bigz XL die, Tasteful Trims. It cuts 4 different trim and border shapes and because it works with your Big Shot, you can cut a wide variety of materials. We used a piece of Tempting Turquoise card stock and found that each piece is 12 inches long - perfect for a 12" x 12" scrapbook page! The large "rick rack" piece would make great waves on a beach layout or layer 2 of them together to create a mountain range. Can't you just see them cut from patterned paper on Halloween or Christmas pages?
We also experimented with a Christmas collage background stamp, some Glass Glitter, and the new Waffle paper. There are over 40 pages of gorgeous things to create holiday cards, ornaments, gifts, scrapbook pages, and more available for purchase on September 1!
