It's a Blog Hop--Big Shot Madness Style

VC_ROCKS BIG SHOT MADNESS
Join me and 32 of my fellow VC_rocks members as we hop around to see some fabulous projects showcasing our Big Shot!  That is right there are 33 stops on this tour so be sure have your favorite drink and a few minutes.  Of course you can always do it a little at a time, but once you get started you know you won't want to stop.  The projects will be well worth the time!  There is a full list of the participating blogs in order on the VC_rocks home page if you get lost or find a link that is not working.    I hope you enjoy my projects for today.  I needed a thank you gift for a teacher that loves butterflies and purple.  So this is what I came up with.  There is the main card that my son and I will be signing and then there is a box with four cards and envelopes and a calendar/memo hanger,   I hope she likes it.  Here is the picture of the whole group.






I tried to keep it pretty simple and only use a few items.  I focused on the Top Note die and the Strength and Hope stamp set.  Here are the items individually... the main card...




This one has only the tops of the top note on it.  You can see them above the sentiment.  Here is the box with it's matching cards.






And the calender/memo hanger...





So do you think she will like it?  I hope so.  All of the projects use the same items:

Stamps:  Strength and Hope and Swirls and Curls Hostess set (both in current mini catalog)
Paper: Concord Crush, So Saffron, Whisper White and in color dp pack
Ink: Concord Crush and So Saffron
Other: white organza ribbon, top note big shot die, embossing folders, jumbo eyelets, rhinestones, circle scissors plus, white gel pen, tool kit

Have fun on the rest of the tour!

Oh my, Mary Jo, the teacher is going to flip over this--so pretty, and all custom designed with her favorites! I'm especially taken with the hanging calendar/memo holder. . . .

You may be the "Top Note Queen"!! I love the memo/calendar hanger and the way you used only the top edges of the die on the main card. Great job! Thank you for sharing the ideas.
