My New Toy!

I love getting new scrapping and crafting items. It makes me all warm and fuzzy inside! Recently I treated myself to the Sizzix BigShot.

I have to thank my friend Rosie who is a Stampin' Up! demonstrator for her guidance on this purchase. I ordered from her Stampin' Up! site and was so happy. I got 2 free gifts, which I have to say were pretty impressive... I got to choose from a huge list of freebies and none were those cheap give-a-aways that other companies just want to get rid of. If you are not familiar with Stampin' Up!, I highly suggest visiting Rosie's blog and checking out her site... you will not be disappointed!

For my free gifts I choose a border punch and a Happy Birthday (4 piece) stamp set on wooden blocks. I love them both and plan to use them very soon!

I have my eye on a bunch of Sizzix dies and I can't wait to get my hands on them!! The machine is great and so easy to use. I love my Cricut but this is just so much easier. I don't have to worry about plugging it in, or if the paper is sticking to the pad, or if it will cut all the way through, etc.

Happy Scrapping to me and you!
