I won Prize Patrol !!!!

I was so excited to be pick by our famous Ronda Wade for prize patrol a couple of weeks ago. I got 3 packs of candy dots, which was really cool for me b/c (yes close your ears) I have yet to buy any to see if I would like them. But I am now sold they are just as fun and easy to work with as our jewels. So guess what's on my next order out. =D

Scrappin Memories Envelope Book

 Take 4 envelopes using sticky strip attach with lip of envelope to back of next envelope. 
The one at the top I just tucked inside you can cut it off as well. When folding together it should fold into the shape of a "M"/"W" depends on how you look at it. =)
 Next I took a sheet whisper white cardstock and 
Cut at 4-1/2 X 5-7/8 

 Cut the dsp at 4-1/4 X 5-3/4
These to layers will go on outside of envelope creating a top and bottom
Take a sheet of pool party cs and cut it 1-1/2 X 4-1/4 
and the second piece cut at 1-1/2 X 6
Use your oval punch to round only one side of your 1-1/2 X 6 piece
 For inside you will want to create a insert to be able to share pictures with.
 Again take your Pool Party cs and 
cut 4 at 5 X 3-3/4 and 4 tabs to attach on end for easy pull access.

 To decorate the outer up a bit I took a few scrap pieces cut them down and attach to front.
 I used the square punch to create a scissor-tail look.
 I also used the floral looking punch from the itty bitty punch collection 
and a jewel for some extra pop.

 If you use Velcro the smaller the dot the better. If it's to big it will end up tearing your cs.
This is a fun and simple project to do. oh I forgot to take a picture but once closed it will open in back like a card so you will be able to write a note about pictures inside or attach a couple more pictures which ends up making a cute stand on shelf type album as well.

NEW Spiral Flower Orginal Die Tutorial

With the Big Shot you will need the NEW spiral flower original die, I took 3 sheets of card stock cutting down to size to fit the die now they are ready to roll through big shot. (yes you can cut all 3 out at same time)
I found using a pair of tweezers makes it easy to hold, you want to start from the outer and roll your way inward.
Keep rolling till you reach the center.
You now have a perfect tightly rolled pretty spiral flower...
 Now imagine all the colors you can mix up to make all kinds of unique flowers.
