It's almost time!! On a side note, I simply cannot believe June is over! If June is over, then that means that my Little Man is going to be FOUR next week. This mommy is soooooo not ready for a four year old. Expecially since he has Daddy's sarcasm and Mommy's attitude already. I am in so much trouble with this kid. LOL!
Anyway...since we only have about another 24 hours left in June, I wanted to make sure to remind you to check out the Last Chance list one more time! You may see something you overlooked before but HAVE to have, so it never hurts to look, right? Well, it hurts the wallet, but that's a good hurt....especially when the goodie box arrives! On to our Sneak Peak!!
I LOVE Punch Art!!! I'm kind of a newer Demonstrator, so this may have been around for a bajillion years, but it seems like punch art is all the rage right now! Once I saw these adorable little pansies on the Demonstrator website I knew I had to make them! I wish I could give credit to the originator of the idea to use the BUTTERFLY PUNCH to make the pansy, but I've seen so many samples now, that I don't know who it was. If I could, I would give her (or him) a standing ovation, because this idea was GENIUS!
Sneaky Peaky Goodness - Yes, you're right, that's Daffodil Delight in the center of the flowers (I told you it was my newest favorite color.) You'll also see the brand new Scallop Rectangle Clearlit die for the Big Shot. The biggest selling factor on this for me? It has a clear window so you can see through the die! That means - if you're like me and are too impatient to drag out your stamp-a-ma-jig every time you want to stamp something (even when you know it'll take more time to restamp the straight image anyway) - you can stamp your sentiment onto your paper and then line up the die over it. It's like stamping and then using a coordinating punch, but with the Big Shot!! I think it's perfect with another Sneak Peak here, the Level 3 Hostess set Occasional Quotes. I LOVE this set! It has some fantastic sentiments that cover a range of occasions. I think it's a must have, and you could get it for FREE if you host a qualifying workshop!!
