Magnetic Platform & Envelope Punch Board

WOOT-WOOT It's here....The Magnetic Platform



Your new BFF for your Framelits and Edgelits! Exclusive magnetic platform to hold your Framelits and Edgelits in place when you cut on your Big Shot. No more need for those post a notes to hold them in place.

When you use the Magnetic Platform, you will not need your Multipurpose Platform. You will still need to use the Standard Cutting Pads. The great thing about the Magnetic Platform is that the magnets are so strong; they will allow you to use the Magnetic Platform with your Standard Cutting Pads, which protects it.
Magnetic Platform - 130658

You will especially love using the Magnetic Platform with your stamp sets that have matching Framelits.
 
Once you have stamped the images, you can lay the paper on the clear cutting pad and the Framelits will easily attract to the magnets in the platform holding the Framelit safely in place, and lining it up to the image - right where you need it.

The Magnetic Platform can also be used with Edgelits. They are so fun, but can be frustrating to try to keep them straight as they run through the Big Shot. You can rig up a solution, like post-it notes, but if you have the Magnetic Platform you won't need to. You can line up the Edgelit anywhere on your project that you want and send it through your Big Shot with confidence that the cut will be in exactly the right place.

Thanks for watching today, as you can see the Magnetic Platform is an essential addition to your Big Shot collection.

(* The platform produces a magnetic field—like all magnetic fields, it may interfere with pacemakers, magnetic strips on credit cards, and cell phones if they are too close to the platform).
 
        
The Envelope Punch Board is Here!
Envelope Punch Board 133774

  • It creates totally customizable envelopes in up to 66 different sizes (not to mention a million different color and pattern options depending on the paper you want to use). Even tried and true envelope sizes will only take you moments to create!
  • It's super easy to use. It looks intimidating at first glance, but when you see that all you have to do is measure for the first punch and from there you just turn and score you'll go crazy (in a good way)!
  • It's small and lightweight;  It's also super portable and easy to store. It's small and light enough that you could use it while watching a soccer match, at a park, at a friend's for craft night-anywhere.
  • It even has a slick scoring tool as well as a punch that lets you create rounded corners on your envelopes.
  • It's easy to keep it all together; the stylus storage compartment and two punches are designed into the tool so you don't have a bunch of little pieces to keep track of (even the instructions are printed right on the tool so you won't lose them!).
  • The price is terrific-especially for a tool that does so much!
  • It will be in next year's annual catalog, so it's here to stay.
 Way to cool!  Go to here to order yours today!  All you need is this: Item # 133774, $19.95

Milwaukee Harley Fest

Hi Everyone,

I just wanted to say Thank You to everyone that came to our Great city of Milwaukee, Wisconsin to enjoy the 110th Anniversary for Harley Davidson motorcycles. There were motorcycles everywhere and people from all over the world, Australia, Taiwan, Germany, Italy, Spain, from everywhere.  There were block parties, street parties and big concerts.  We had some great headliners, such as Aerosmith, Kid Rock and ZZ Top.

Well, I had a request from a friend to make a Harley type Birthday card and I thought - mmm, Why Not?  So, here are the cards that I made for her:

Happy Birthday


Used Simple Kitchen Foil
Yes, these were a hot ticket item and I have sold many since the Labor Day Weekend Party.  Especially for the men - they LOVED them.

My favorite is the one with the kitchen foil. Yes, I did say kitchen foil.  I used a piece of CS and ran the entire front with snail/adhesive.  Placed the kitchen foil dull side out, the shiny side was just to shiny, folded the back sides under and ran it through the Big Shot using the Chevron folder.  Placed adhesive on the back and placed it onto Black CS.  The stamp is a retired Stampin UP single stamp called Motorcycle #117657.

If you came into Milwaukee, WI, I hope you enjoyed yourself and we Thank You for coming. I hope you will return for the 115th HD Anniversary.  I also hope you enjoyed my stamp creation too.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me donnamarcil@gmail.com

Donna
