Bits of this and that. Wooden box about to be painted a purple metallic. Not in the picture is my Tim Holtz SideKick. Why buy a Sidekick when I just got a BigShot? Because the Sidekick fits right on my workspace which is extra fantastic for cutting those little things without having to walk around to the BigShot. Both of them have been getting a workout.

Cloche Up project from Papertrey Ink's Make It Market kit: Wonderland.

 Ornament made with two of the main pieces put together around the edges. Shutterbug Special from Papertrey Ink.

Another ornament made with the Shutterbug Special set this time with a photo as the slider.

My new Big Shot arrived so I got busy cutting variations of Papertrey Ink's Mix & Mat: Berry Boughs. Each die comes with an interchangeable outer edge, inner frame and decorative background. It needed one folded sheet of printer paper as a shim to cut all the way through, but it works! I'm not sure what to do with my uneven cutting BigKick (but it worked well for most of the 15 years I had it).
