About Me

Sarahfleming1 Hello! My name is Sarah Fleming, and I'm a paper addict living in central Texas. I'm an independent demonstrator for Stampin' Up! and love to teach others how to make lovely paper projects. I always have ink-stained fingers (I'm okay with that). I also knit. If you're in the USA, I'd love to be your demonstrator!

The Big Deal on the Big Shot

I’ve been so excited about this deal ever since Stampin’ Up! told us demos about it. Been counting down the days to August 1st so I could tell y’all about it! Okay, here it is.

If you buy a Big Shot from Stampin’ Up! in August, you will receive a stamp set and framelits bundle for FREE!!! There are five bundles to choose from, and they’re all great.

Great deal, right? I almost wish I didn’t have a Big Shot so I could take advantage of the deal. Oh, but — BUT!! If you already own a Big Shot, you can buy any of the five bundles at 15% off the regular price. Which means that this morning I ordered the Bright & Beautiful bundle, which includes my favorite stamp set from the holiday catalog (going live August 28) and the Stars framelits.

You might be wondering why you need a Big Shot. Or even what a Big Shot is. Well, Stampin’ Up! has put together this nifty video to show you the Big Shot Basics.

I personally couldn’t live without my Big Shot. Yes, that’s hyperbole when you consider all of life, but when we’re talking stamping, I must have it.

It embosses using our wonderful embossing folders. It cuts using framelits dies or steel rule dies. See the chevrons on the black starburst layer? Embossed with the Big Shot, then cut with the Big Shot. The zig-zag border on the Crushed Curry layer is also ct with the Big Shot. The banner is cut with the Big Shot. This whole card is Big Shot, Big Shot, Big Shot. So yeah… must have it.

You can cut so many things with the Big Shot. Paper (one layer with framelits, up to four layers of our thick cardstock with the Bigz steel rule dies), fabric, cork, chipboard, coaster board, Glimmer Paper, Project Life cards, the list goes on.

To see your choice of free bundles, go here (this even gives you a sneak peak at the Bright & Beautiful stamps). I’ve listed them for you, too. Buy your Big Shot today or any time in the month of August so you can get in on this wonderful deal! And if you already own a Big Shot, you can still buy the bundles, which are priced at 15% off the price of buying the stamps and framelits individually. Deals for everyone!
