Hooray for sneak peeks from the upcoming Occasions Mini Catalog! May I just take a moment to say how much I like this Paper Doily Large Sizzlet die for the Big Shot? You are going to LOVE it!! It's been so hard to keep my paws off until the proper time to share--I've had it in my hot little hands since Founder's Circle way back in September!
Wait, wait! You say? How do you get YOUR hot little hands on this die? The mini catalogs should hit your mailboxes in the middle of December--don't let them get pitched along with the holiday junk mail--and ordering goes live on January 4th, 2012.
It's a little putzy to get all the "hanging chads" poked out, but it is so worth it--it's huge! and so intricately detailed. To give you an idea of how large it is, the above box is 4.5 inches wide from side to side. The large Scallop Circle (#113468) die fits it perfectly as a mat, too.
Don't worry, there's a photo tutorial coming right up on how to make this easy, one-sheet gift box that holds from 10-12 cards plus envelopes! I am excited to announce a new blog series, "A Simply Scored Christmas." Every day in December from now through the 15th, there will be a photo tutorial or mini tutorial of a project featuring scoring techniques.
Be warned, though--if you don't own the Simply Scored board yet, you will by the time this series is finished! And if you love doilies, be sure to check out the "31 Days of Doilies" blog series I did from the 1st to the 31st of August 2011. That'll keep you busy for a bit!
