Stampin'Up! Designer Rosette Bigz Die and my Big Shot Make some Home Decor

We had a wonderful weekend. The Girl Guides planned a trip to the Calgary Zoo. The Programme included a fabulous late evening walk along the paths of the Canadian Wilds section of the zoo, sleeping in the Cequel lodge, beside the playful otters and an early morning stroll past the grizzlies over to our breakfast in Kitamba Hall, before letting us loose in the zoo for a day of touring.
The weather cooperated which is amazing for April in Alberta and we had a fabulous time!
I am slow getting some ideas prepared for my classes this week, but will be working with the Dress Form and the plethora of ideas that can be imagined with it! Check back in to see what I'm coming up with!
About a month ago, I revamped my entryway alcove with these fun Rosettes from an idea I'd seen on Pinterest. I used the Sizzix Designer Rosette Bigz XL die and cut the scored pieces in several different variations giving me some rosettes with the lovely scalloped edge and some rosettes with the wonderful jagged edge. The largest rosette is full size and uses a centre circle piece that has a 5" diameter. I used hot glue to fasten the rosettes onto the centre pieces, and then decorated them in a variety of styles.
