Petite Pocket Big Shot die gift card holders created by Stampin Up and me


Hi dear Stampers.

I am glad you took some time in your day to stop by. Welcome!

Today, I was working on another project for my upcoming workshop here in Calgary, Alberta

And yes, I know, it's already late in the evening, but I didn't want to wait until tomorrow with posting my super cute gift card holders that I created with my Petite Pocket Big Shot Die from Stampin Up. (#123131 - $52.95)


Use this adorable pocket to enclose small, thoughtful gifts and delightful surprises! The innovative designs in these longer Bigz dies give you new and interesting creative options. Use with Extended Premium Crease Pads. The Petite Pocket Bigz XL Die works best using only one layer at a time. Measures 6" x 13-3/4".
I loved how easy it was to roll this die through my Big Shot. Fold it, glue it and dress it up. 
I started with the beautiful color palette created by the Play Date Cafe Challenge #168.
Their projects were amazing. I loved each one of them and I couldn't wait to get going with these colors on my own creations.

But after I was done with my first gift card holder, I didn't want to stop. I wanted to see how it would like like with other colours. And other designs.



And as you can see, each one of them is loaded with the sweetest Stampin Up goodies. I used punches and embossing folders, sparkles and inks.. I seriously had a blast and I can't wait to show these in 2 weeks to the ladies that are coming to the workshop.



Pss: if you live in the Calgary area and you would like to join us at the card / paper craft workshop, please convo me and I can give you the details. It is on a Sunday afternoon, February the 24th. Me and the girls would love to connect with you.

On one of the little gift card / little noets holders ,I used the Delicate Designs Textured Impressions Embossing Folders (#127023 - $10.95) Aren't they gorgeous?
2 folders to emboss card edges (ea. 6-1/2" x 2-5/16"). Coordinates with Large Scallop Edgelits Dies. Textured Impressions Embossing Folders emboss a single sheet of paper and make deep impressions. Use with the Big Shot, Standard Cutting Pads, and the Multipurpose Platform.


I had also hopped over to the Runway Inspired Challenge Blog #29. I always get such a kick out of the Clean and Simple projects that the sweet ladies make. They take a runway outfit photo and let the photo inspire you to create a project.
In this weeks Challenge there was a lot of pink, crumb cake-ish and cream-ish colours, bold lines and a hint of vintage beauty. I hope my cards reflects those themes..

Well, it's late.. very late.. way to late for this SAHM ...
I seriously need to hop over to my own bed :)
Inky hugs, Pauline
