CTC#125 -Creating with my Bigshot

Choosing your favourite Bigshot project from the Occasions Catalogue is a big task- there are just so many amazing thinlits and folders available. But that's the task this week for the CTC Design team so we hope you follow along and also create a project using one of your favourite bigshot tools and share it with us on our Facebook Page.

In the end I have chosen to show you some projects made using the Succulents Bundle (so sad this is retiring)- but also a little SNEAK PEAK of some sentiments coming in a new set -Colorful Seasons.

I created several frames for the Mother's Day markets at the Handmade Expo Markets - including one as a farewell gift for a colleague.  These Frames include lots of bits and pieces from my useful box - so some items are retired- like the Crystal buttons, The resin flowers, some of the rhinestones. But most are new and some are even so new they aren't available yet - like the Sentiments, (From a new set called Colorful Seasons) the Wood Textures DSP and Gold Faceted Gems and the Glitter Enamel Dots.

The first uses DSP from the Serene Scenery pack, and some water colouring around the sentiment on the Border mat. 
The Succulents are Macaron Mint sponged with Wisteria Wonder, Garden Green stamped with white, and Wisteria sponged with Wisteria and some white, and the leaves from Rose Garden framelits are cut in Almost Artichoke and Garden Green. There's also some music DSP and some Copper foil that's been embossed and a few old embellishments. See what else you can find!





The second version uses some new gorgeous timber paper and a new sentiment. Mint Macaron succulents which have glitter enamel dots as their centre. The crystal buttons have an old silver Rhinestone in the centre of the button, ad i had a single spray of white flowers left over some some ancient project but they just added a nice lift.




Some of these products are retiring and we are really going to miss them - I am devastated that Mint Macaron will be leaving us.
So if there is something I've used which you think you would like to own don't leave it any longer to order - some products are already sold out. If you click on any of the images in the table below it will take you directly to my online store and you can secure them for your stash of craft necessities!

Thanks so much for looking, I hope you find some time to be creative this week, and enter it into the weekly edition

    1. Go ahead Mel. (and send me a picture!)These are the Ribba Frame from Ikea- 9" square and they are fabulous because they sit flat on a shelf or can be wall hung. There aren't too many decent box frames around but these are good quality, and the cream mat inside is also excellent quality.
