Big Ticket Basics...

Welcome to the first group post day of the Papertrey Ink April countdown.  Today the team is sharing projects using a new stamp set called Big Ticket Basics.  These jumbo-sized tags are perfect for both scrapbook pages and cards.  There is a coordinating die as well.  If you're familiar with Papertrey's Ticket Border die, this is just a jumbo sized version of it...I love how it cuts perforations, just like real tickets.  The Big Ticket Basics stamp set and coordinating die will be available for purchase from the Papertrey Ink sit on April 15th, 2013 at 10 pm EST.

Nichole challenged each team member to create a photo/scrapbook project as well as a card to showcase all of the possibilities with this set.  First, my scrapbook page.  I chose to use Big Ticket Basics to scrapbook photos of my daughter's 9th birthday from last summer.  


The "Best Day Ever" ticket is just the perfect thing, because to her, this really was the best day ever!  She got to have a few cousins overnight and we took them all to get pedicures.  There's nothing she loves more than being girly!  I accented that cute ticket image with flowers from the Mini Blooms set.


I also used the "hooray it's your day" ticket to embellish a little printed bag which holds a journaling tag.  The little circle image on this tag can be embellished with lots of different tiny images from the set -- a star, heart, or a number like I did here to represent her age.  The date ticket (which I didn't get a cloe-up of -- sorry!) is the perfect way to add that bit of info to your pages.

Next, my card.  I used the "Hooray, it's your day" image again and the same concept of using it to embellish a small bag.  I love taking ideas from scrapbook pages and using them on a smaller scale for cards, or vice-versa. This time it can hold a gift card, making it perfect for birthdays.  


I switched up the color combo, making it perfect for a more boy-ish gift.  I stamped the image in Blueberry Sky and Enchanted Evening and fussy-cut the arrow and sentiment to create a multi-colored and dimensional ticket.
