Dream on, dream away

I wasn’t quite sure about this new set, Daydream Medallions, and coordinating Framelits, Floral Frames, when I first saw them in the new catalog.  I think they are beautiful, but they are just so big.  I had an opportunity to get a few half price items though, so I decided to go ahead and get both since they were such a great deal.  I am so glad I did!  The large size makes it really easy to design a card, because there isn’t much room left for anything else!  I will definitely be using these flowers on some scrapbook pages.  If you are using Framelits, a tip I have learned from other demos is to keep a stack of small post-it-notes nearby.  Put your stamped image on the clear plate with the Framelit on top, then take a post-it-note and put it over the Framelit.  This will keep the Framelit from sliding off of your cardstock when you run it through the Big Shot.  Best tip I have ever heard for the Big Shot!
