The Big Shot makes every project Fabulous!!

  Happy Friday!  I don't know about you, but whenever I want to make a fabulous paper craft project I always turn to my trusty Big Shot - it is the most used tool in my craft room.  How about you?

  Well, if you haven't used yours in a while or are on the fence about making the investment to purchase one we've got lots of inspiration for you today!  All of our Fabulous Friday projects were created using the Big Shot this week... enjoy!!

   Up first is our guest designer Cindy Blekas with her awesome treat box featuring the Baker's Box thinlit.  Be sure to check out all the details on her blog post here.

  And here is a super-cute summertime card that Rachel Yurkanin created using the Everyday Jars thinlit.  Please visit her blog here to get more information about her project.

  Here is my project for this week - it is a gift card holder created with the Mini Treat Bag and Flourish thinlit sets.  Please hop over to my blog post here to see the card inside.

  Jennifer has already started to get ready for Christmas with this cute gift box made from the Curvy Keepsake Thinlits Dies and the Wonderful Wreath Framelits Dies.  See all the details on her blog.
