I have another video for you today that is part of the Big Shot Basics series– How To Use Big Shot With Thinlits & Framelits. I absolutely could not craft without my Big Shot, but sometimes it can be a bit intimidating.  It is actually super easy to use, you just have to know how to make the right “sandwich” depending on what you are running through it.  Today we will take the mystery out of Framelits & Thinlits!

Take the Mystery Out of Framelits & Thinlits

We are going to jump in with the How To Use Big Shot With Thinlits & Framelits video so you can learn how to use the different types of Framelits & Thinlits and what Big Shot accessories you really do want to have!

If you are ready this in your email, the video might not show up–so just click below to go watch it on YouTube:

Big Shot Products

Here are all the Big Shot products and accessories I refer to in the video.  If you don’t have something, and you realize you need it, you can click on any of the pictures to go to my online store to order!

If you have an older Big Shot, your original platform may be different and contains “tabs” that you flip back and forth.  The new platform, shown above, can be purchased as a replacement, but it was redesigned to cut and emboss better.

Cards In Video

In the video I shared a bunch of cards made using the OH SO ECLECTIC stamp set and coordinating dies.  These are older cards and some of the colors and ribbons may be retired.  However, the card ideas are still good and you could easily swap out other ribbons and colors.  This is a super fun stamp set to play with since there are so many different ways to use all the pieces.

These first 4 were actually my Stamps-in-the-Mail along time ago!
