Top Note Quilts

Okay, I just have to share what I worked on this weekend. Check out these Top Note Quilts!!! SO cute! We made the top left (or bottom right) versions at my SAS this weekend, and the other 3 are the variations I came up with for some of by bestest stampers. These are the EASIEST cards! Super FAST! And, better yet - they're GREAT at using up your scraps or extra strips of Double-Sided Designer Papers. Simply gather your scraps, punch out 12 squares with your 1 1/4" Punch, place on another scrap paper (approx. 3 3/4" x 5"), then run through your Big Shot using the Stampin' Up! exclusive Top Note Die. If you like, give it a little faux stitching using the Gel Pen - the die leaves you with the perfect perforations for this technique. Then, stamp once, punch a couple times, tie a ribbon and ... BAM! Sorry, I don't know who to credit with the original Top Note Quilt idea - they're all over the 'net now, but if you were the inventor of this technique, let me know. I want to thank you!Posted by Picasa

Using up the scraps with a QUILT design - what a super idea! I love it, love it, LOVE it! You are such an artist, Laurel. Your SAS ladies are so lucky to have you as a teacher.
