I'm finally up on the newest trend :) I'm sooooo excited - I just rec'd my BIG SHOT a little over a week ago along with the Scallop Circle die (still waiting the Top Note as it is on backorder :( and I saw this adorable step-by-step tutorial for this project by Patty Bennett and had to give it a try. This is my first die cut machine so this was the perfect tutorial to get me started with my new toy :) I totally CASED her idea and I love how they turned out! Aren't these adorable!!! I used Baja Breeze, Regal Rose, and Sage Shadow for my bibs. Background Basics (retired set) were inked in VersaMark and randomly stamped on the bib. I used the stamp from Punches Three (hostess set) and inked it twice in 2 different colors - punched one out with the large oval and then used the other to snip out the middle portion and place it on dimensionals (ie: my regal rose bib - inked the 1st time in Close to Cocoa and punched it out, then inked again in Regal Rose, but only snipped out the middle portion of the inked image and adhered that with dimensionals on the Close to Cocoa piece - make sense???) Used the Wide Oval Punch to kreate the 'neck' of the bib. Then used my Crop-a-dile to insert some Jumbo Pewter Eyelets and threaded ribbon through for the authentic bib look :) LOVE THEM! Thanks for taking a peak! I'm meeting with my group of ladies tonight to make some gift cards and have a few Holiday goodies - FUN FUN FUN! Then I really need to go into high gear - Saturday is my first craft fair, the count down begins!!!!!
For now, go kreate

Good luck on your craft fair. I sure wish I lived nearby so I could come and buy some of your great stuff. I'm sure you will do well.

I'm so excited . . . I can make these. I received the Scallop Circles and have barely played with them (too busy with holiday cards).

Thanks for the inspiration! Hugs, M
