Looking for ideas……Think Outside the Box

I have agreed to be a WOW presenter at Stampinpalooza taking place this October in Toronto. This exciting event is being hosted by my upline Caroline Lebel. There will be some fabulous presenters that day. For further information check out the website at: http://www.stampinpalooza.blogspot.com.

I am looking forward to learning some great ideas and meeting new people.

Now the big task for me…. to decide what my wow will be.

I have set a goal this summer to try and make at least 1 of everything I put on my “Things you could make using your Big Shot!” sheet. I am still looking for further ideas from any of you, so if you think of anything please let me know. I am trying to incorporate all of the 50 different materials that can be used in the Big Shot which include:

Thick corkboard
Thick chipboard (59 mil)
Colored magnet
Ruffle board
Paper wood
Balsa wood (3/32″)
Bass wood (1/16″)
Metal mesh
Aluminum (.016)
Tin (.008)
Adhesive and non-adhesive mat board
Drawer liner
Shelf liner
Static cling vinyl
Shrink film
Fine sandpaper
Clear acetate (20 mil)
Card stock
Patterned paper
Flocked paper
Contact paper
Textured paper
Metallic paper
Linen paper
Suede paper
Embossed metallic paper
Basketball embossed paper
Faux alligator textured paper
Self-adhesive glitter paper

  1. These are cool ideas!
    Do not stress about the WOW presentation. As we get closer, Caroline will send out emails with different suggestions and we will get to choose what we want to do, so that we are not all doing the same thing. No reason to stress…yet! LOL! Just kidding.
    I am really looking forward to this!
