Freshly Brewed Projects - Favourite Retiring Tool

Hello and welcome. Today it  is time for another Freshly Brewed Projects with the Latte Girls. This weeks theme is our favourite retiring tool. Well without a doubt, my favourite retiring tool is the Big Shot. By using dies with the Big Shot, there is just so much more detail that can be added to a project.

Take this card for example. You can cut the flowers and the foliage out with scissors easily, but the extra die cut leaves that add that extra touch just can't be cut out without the Big Shot. Well they can if you have another die cutting machine. And look at that sentiment strip. There is no way you can do that by hand.

I love the Big Shot as it is so easy to use and quick too. I do have an electronic cutting machine but hardly use it as it's a pain to have to make room for it on my desk and clear enough space to allow the mat to run back and forth. I have my Big Shot on an Ikea trolley so it can be wheeled around my craft room and is always ready to go.

Now that  you have seen my project, it is time to see what the other Latte Girls have done.


To purchase any of the supplies I have used on my card today, please see the product list below.

Have a great day.
