Straighten your Big Shot Plates

I simply adore by Big Shot, but it seems the plates always want to warp and has card stock trapped in the grooves. After trying what seems like everything under the sun, I finally found something that works. Thank you IMGUR.

To recap: We are going to cook our "B" plates.
  • I wrapped it in foil and put it in a Pyrex dish. (My "B" plate did not lay flat in the Pyrex dish. So I placed it with the warp part  up. This way as it cooks, it will flatten the "B" plate.)

  • Now place other heavy dishes on top. 

  • Then put the everything in the oven at 170C (325F or gas mark # 3) for 30 minutes. I did check on it a couple of times to make sure it wasn't burning. I could see it was getting flatter and flatter by the end of the 30 minutes.

  • I took everything out of the oven and left it to cool right down until it is cool enough to touch it without burning yourself. 

  • Now unwrap the foil and admire your flat "B" plate. Also you will see that the card stock trapped in the grooves can easily be wiped off. 

IF you do not have a BIG SHOT; then you are missing all the fun. Get your Stampin Up Big Shot at elainepelletier.stampinup.net

Have you finished your Christmas cards, boxes and ornaments? I have been really working hard on all the SU Punch boards. There have been a few classes the last 2 weeks where we did Boxes, Bows and Stocking gifts. They were a blast. Not to mention we all went home with boxes and bags that just needed to be filled. If missed the classes here are a few pictures of what was made. 

 The bags above were made on the SU Punch Bag Board and 8 1/2 x 11
 Square pillow framelits are a great way to give gifts. These pillow are made with a 6 x12 sheet of DSP. Easy to decorate and fun to make.
Just having some fun with the SU Bag Punch Board. The Santa and Snowman are small bags with a few little creative punches.

These two have an assortment of fun items, including a Christmas ornament, gift card envelopes and boxes make with the  SU envelope punch board.
