1 year old birthday card

(not liking the flash :( but had to get a quick photo before it was gone)
This design came to me during the night over the weekend.  A friend of mine was heading out to his nephew's first birthday party and I thought I would create a card for him to take.  Reason one: to say Happy Birthday to the Birthday Boy. And reason two: so others can see how amazing Stampin' Up! cardstock, ink, stamps, and the Big Shot are! I love the idea of things popping of the page!!

Big Shot Technique Class

Being new at using the Big Shot and materials made me nervous to show how to use the system with customers!  I read threads and blogs and viewed videos to prepare my self for any questions or concerns.  I printed out sandwich recipes for my customers and show cased a few projects in which I used the few dies and plates that I had.  I was glad that the customers brought with them a few materials they had previously purchased and we used them together to get a feel for the items and to see the potential for the designs or cut outs.  We were also able to use materials from the Cuttlebug!!!  It was a good time and am hoping to purchase more and hold a second class in the fall.  I now know what direction I need to go in with the class.  I also received some great out-of-the-box ideas from one of my customers.  Thanks so much!
