Re-Create…UStamp with Dawn & Friends – Big Shot Brilliance!!




     This is the lovely Lattice Tote and Wallet set that my lovely friend Paula Dobson (Stampinantics) designed for UStamp with Dawn & Friends – Big Shot Brilliance!  This IS truly BRILLIANT!  I really love this project and just had to re-create it for myself.  Although, I wasn’t alone in the recreation.  The complete tutorial is up at UStamp with Dawn & Friends.  You can join and get this and many more tutorials, all using the Big Shot, for yourself!  It really is fun to see all the BRILLIANT creations from such a talented group of100_2812 people from all over the world. 

     I, for the most part, cased this project exactly from Paula’s fabulous tutorial.  I changed only the colors (Daffodil Delight, Pear Pizzazz & Crumb Cake), stamp sets used(Afterthoughts, Teeny Tiny Wishes) and punch size (simply because I don’t own the size that was originally used). 

      Isn’t this bag divine?  I think so!  I used one of Stampin’ Up!’s no longer available Mini Lunch Sacks.  It works perfectly!  I so hope they bring those back in an upcoming catalog.  I think some Sweet Pea hand lotion for the boys’ teachers will fit nicely ;)

100_2824     I, obviously, have a difficult time following directions.  That or I was so excited to be re-creating this project…yea…that’s what it was!  I went off and made my OWN wallet…lol!  I really like Paula’s better though!  I did the same with the flowers…didn’t follow directions.  They ended up on another project.  Check out my Oops card :)  Anyway, my wallet is smaller but it is the perfect size for a lip balm! :)  Remember:  No mistakes, only creative opportunity! 

     This really was a great project to re-create!  I think I will re-create another in yet another color combo…or two.  There is still time for you to join in the fun over at UStamp with Dawn & Friends.  You won’t be disappointed :) 

     Thanks for stopping by today.  I hope you’ve been inspired to re-create too!



All supplies are Stampin’ Up! and can be purchased here unless noted as no longer available.
