Big Shot Blog Hop

Hi everyone!
If you are traveling forward in the Stampin' Addict's Big Shot Blog Hop you've just come from Adriana's blog, Escape 2 Stamp.  I love the Stocking Accents die!  Adriana created such cute projects with it.  There were so many amazing projects using the different Big Shot dies and folders in the hop.  To wrap up the hop I'm featuring projects using the Peekaboo Frames Bigz L Die.
 What, you may ask, can be done with this die that hasn't already been
shared on the web?  I put my thinking cap on, and took a step outside the box. 
This is what I came up with . . . .

A fun folding frame with a springtime feel to it.
butterfly images are from Flight Of The Butterfly. 
The flower is done using the Boho Blossom punch.
Lace Edge Punch, Regal Rose CS

I was trying to see how many pieces of card stock I could run through
the Big Shot with this die.  I want to offer a countdown calendar class
and didn't want to be die cutting for hours.  Well, you can do 2 pieces,
but one is better.  sigh. 
The score line had cut through on almost all of the frames. 
Looking at that pile of pieces, I saw a banner, or two, for the holidays . . .
Red Glimmer Paper - Holiday Mini
Stockings Accent Die - Holiday Mini
Wold Wasabi CS, Frostwood Lodge dsp
Bakers Twine

This is what I created with that idea using the circle Peek A Boo.
Timeless Type Alphabet Junior Stampin' Up! Sizzlits Die
Bashful Blue brayered with Baja Breeze
and embossed with a mix of clear and Iridescent Ice
Silver Glimmer Paper - Holiday Mini
Northern Frost Decorative Strip Die - Snowflakes
White Taffeta Ribbon, Chunky Glitter
Some cute 3x3 cards.  I used a few images from the 25 and Counting
stamp set in the Holiday Mini, inside the Peek A Boo windows. 
For the number 5 card I cut out a five and covered the ornament image. 
I wanted a star there, but could not cut one small enough. 
I needed a punch!  lol
Inside I stamped the image from Bring on the Cake
 and colored in the coordinating numbers for the birthday year.

Thanks for hopping along!  To learn how to make everything,
sign up to be a blog follower, or check back Monday
 for the how tos on the different projects I created.
The next stop on the blog hop will take you back to the beginning at Rhonda's blog,
The Stamping Bunny.  She will be showing you some adorable projects made
with the Designer Frames Textured Impressions Folder.

Happy stamping!

love what you did! I almost ordered this die the other day, but opted for fun flowers instead hoping I could make some Christmas presents with it. But I still really want this one. I love the two banners especially. Really love how you took something that didn't turn out like you wanted it, but you made something beautiful from it anyhow. Love the folding frame too.

Oh Kim, these are all just delightful! Love the Joy banners, both vertical and horizontal. . . And those peekaboo 3 x3s are cool!
