I had a wonderful time last night with the employees of Nancy's Notions in Beaver Dam, WI. Many thanks to Betty H. for arranging it all and providing a great meal! I was privileged to instruct these ladies in the fine art of the Big Shot. They already knew about the Big Shot for its many awesome quilting uses, but I was able to introduce them to the myriad of ways you can use it with other materials, from paper and cardstock, to magnet, vinyl, window sheet, wood, felt and much more!
One of the three projects we made was a quilt card like these fall ones above (we made baby ones). The Lattice die, exclusive to Stampin' Up, makes adorable quilts. I like doing it with double-sided paper so that you have lots of options when you're fitting the little cut out pieces back into the pattern and gluing them down. And of course, when you finish it and run it through an embossing folder, it looks just like fabric. More samples of quilt cards here and here.
One of the reasons Betty's party worked out so well was that it was right after work got out at five p.m. If that's an option for you, I'd be thrilled to come and do a show at your workplace. Clear it with your boss, and give me a call! I'm also available to do monthly after-work clubs. We can make it fit with your schedule! Contact me today. (920) 261-3962 [email protected]
