"Brave" Layout Kit for Cre8time at York Street Baptist Church with Sizzix Big Shot Pro

Hello, Gorgeouses!

My goodness, am I looking forward to hosting the free "Cre8te and Take" at York Street Baptist Church's monthly scrapbooking this Friday in York, Maine!  Find all the details HERE.

I am featuring {NEW} ways to consider using Sizzix's Big Shot Pro dies to continue to create fresh layouts.  I have three custom layout kits attendees will be able to choose from, each featuring different elements of the dramatic "Forever Fall" collection by BoBunny Press.

The first layout, "Brave," explores the o of Sizzix Big Shot Pro die, "Square, Ornate" using two photos sized 5"x 5" and 3"x 6.5".  Find the details of the second layout option HERE and the third layout option HERE.

To begin, mark the mid-point of a 12" X 4" strip of BoBunny's "Forever Fall Dot Dot" paper,

Add tic marks on your Big Shot Pro die in the spot you would like to reference, one on each end of the die.

Center your paper on the die.

Align your tic marks from your paper to the ones on the die.  Ensure the steel rule of the die is covered on each end by the paper.

Create your Sizzix sandwich with your Big Shot Pro, starting by layering your Adapter Pad, Crease Pad, Big Shot Pro die, paper, and cutting pad in your Big Shot Pro Sliding Tray, ensuring the cutting pad slightly overhangs the die as it moves through the Big Shot Pro.

Take the 12" X 6" BoBunny "Forever Fall Foliage" paper and repeat the tic marks, this time off-setting the point 2.5" from the left, both top & bottom. 

Slide your new die-cut piece straight across you die so that it slightly overhangs the front edge of the die. Complete you Sizzix sandwich by layering the cutting pad on top and roll your die-cut through the Big Shot Pro a second pass, trimming off a small section.

Die-cut a Sizzix Bigz "Square, Scallop" from BoBunny's "Forever Fall Impressions" double-sided paper.

Using the reverse side of "Forever Fall Impressions," overlay multiple stamped images using shimmering Tsukineko "Brilliance" inks, grounded with a solid "Memento" inked image ~

Add a finishing touch to the die-cut with a border in a coordinating color.

Prepare Bobunny's "Forever Fall Impressions" 5.5" x 5.5" and 3.75" x 7.25" mats for photos, layering components and embellishments from BoBunny's "Forever Fall Noteworthy" and learn how to turn THIS Big Shot Pro "Square, Ornate" die cut shape
into THIS new interpretation ~

I'm excited to share the glorious double-sided papers, immense variety of embellishments and coordinating stamps that complete the extensive collection.  

Be sure to check back tomorrow for the second layout kit available to choose from THIS friday at the "Cre8te and Take" at monthly community scrapbooking at York Street Baptist Church!

Happy Day, Laurel
