Welcome to Stop #6 on the Stampin Addicts Big Shot Blog Hop! If you’re hopping in order, you’ve just been admiring Lisa’s (you know her as genesis on SA) lovely creations with the Box #2 die at Add Ink and Stamp. Now those are fabulous boxes, don’t you think?
Here at InkPaperStamps, we’re playing with the Petite Pocket Bigz XL die– and to add to the fun, we’re also offering some blog candy!
But first, the question everyone’s been asking: what’s in the pocket?
Well, this pocket was designed for a milestone birthday for my mom. Her siblings are coming in from around the country to help celebrate, and we’ll have a goodie basket waiting in their hotel rooms.
As a token of thanks for coming from afar, each basket will have a Petite Pocket envelope with a smattering of sunflower seeds they can take home and plant. Why sunflowers seeds? Because she’s from Kansas!
(Good thing she’s not a Texan–I have no idea how we’d have gotten a longhorn steer in there. . . .)
Here’s another way to put the Petite Pocket die to good use: as a chimney card!
*The crowd begins to murmer nervously, noone wanting to be the first to stand up and say, ‘But Holly, you can make a chimney from a rectangle of cardstock–you don’t need a Petite Pocket diecut for that. . . .’*
Au contraire, mes amies, au contraire! You do need a Petite Pocket diecut to make a chimney–
if you want to make it a double slider chimney card! (Hmmm, looks like Rudolph got a little sooty in there. Note to self: next time sweep the chimney first.)
This just scratches the surface on how you can use the Petite Pocket die–you should see the list The Dog’s come up with! If you’d like to be among the first to hear, kindly subscribe to InkPaperStamps’ free updates.
