A Date With Mrs S, My Sizzix Big Shot Die Cutting Machine

One evening last week, Hubby B went out for a works dinner and Baby B ditched me for the comfort of his bed and a sleepy cuddle with his 'Gina the giraffe.' In true 'get to it' style, I decided on a date with Mrs S and the Great British Sewing Bee. I reluctantly add here that I also caught up on Made in Chelsea. I don't watch much TV but we all have our guilty pleasures.

My aim for the evening was to use some of Baby B's craft papers and cut lots of shapes to keep in a crafty tin for future sticky collage sessions. Here are the papers I used which were a mix of bright neon shades and some matt colours.
This is the result. Lots of lovely little shapes to prompt a bit of imagination and creativity
It got me thinking that I might bag up a few collections of die cut shapes to sell for additions to childrens craft boxes. I'm in the process of having a mass clear out of craft stuff and a huge tidy up to get organised. For now, I've stored Baby B's die cuts in this doggy tin which I've put in his arts and crafts box.
I love that every time he sees it he says 'bic bic' then I explain its just a doggy tin and he says 'woof woof'. Maybe I can convince him that NONE of the biscuit tins have biscuits in them. Or is that wishful thinking?
