Samples as promised

Edit* Sorry, the dog's name is not Sam. Sam is the beach dude.
Sorry about not posting this sooner. Here are a couple of samples that I worked on the other day.
These new stamps from Dandelion Designs are much bigger than the ones you've seen in the stores. Jean did such a terrific job on these! I know she'll be posting samples on her blog too so don't forget to check it out.
Here's the deets: Maddy stamp, flower stamp, Cuttlebug swiss dots folder, Spellbinders classic circle small and large nesties, and Sizzix XL
favor box die.
2nd photo: I think the dog's name is Sam, word stamp, background flower stamp, Spellbinders square nesties in scallop and classic large, and Hero Arts gemstones.
The last photo is made from the Sizzix XL box die. One of our customers (Michele) came up with this idea to put a cupcake in the box. She even gave me the instructions for it so I could make a sample.
3rd photo: Sizzix XL box die, cupcake Sizzlet from seasonal set, XL cupcake holder die (inside the box to
hold your cupcake, Spellbinders petite oval nesties in both scallop and classic, $1 For You stamp, Spellbinders square classic nesties, circle classic nesties and Hero Arts gemstones. Also, I used acetate for the window.
I just got word that the Sizzix shipment is here today! There's a bunch of dies and cutting pads that people were waiting for. Please call the store before you go down there if there is something you want.
Have a great Thursday!!!

We do have the 12" clear blocks too. And Dandelion Designs has a new release which we will have in the store this week. Lots of cute new images and bigger sized stamps. Hope you can make it by this week to see all the new stamps!

Another Sizzix sample

Hi everyone! As I was cleaning up and working on a sample of the new XL scallop bag die, I found one of my first Sizzix dies that I bought. It was an original puppy die which I probably used only once. Here's the sample of the bag using the puppy die. FYI, this die is old and retired so you may not be able to find it and we don't have any to sell at the store. Here's the deets: Sizzix original puppy die, Sizzix XL scallop bag die, Cuttlebug swiss dots emboss folder, chipboard for puppy, Hero Arts round gemstones, scallop punch, Sizzix rub-ons, and ribbon.

Shaker box and a card

Here's a couple of quick samples that I worked on this afternoon. We had some requests to see the size that these Sizzix dies can cut. The first one is the shaker box that has a flap on the top where I placed the daisy flower. When you lift the flap up, you can see the candies that are in the box. It's a good size favor box and holds quite a bit of candy. The 2nd picture shows the candy in the box.
I know the photo is quite blurry, I probably need a bigger screen on my camera. But then again, I was stand

ing on the bed and taking the photo.

The last photo is the horizontal card and matching envelope. I used some stash from another make-it take-it to decorate the card. The card and envelope is smaller than the normal A2 size but you can still mail it.
For some reason, this photo came out yellowish. It really looks much better IRL. All these samples will be at the

store so you can see the sizes.
Have a great Father's Day weekend!
