We also have a really cute Guest Designer snippets card this week, from the super-talented Jane Willis:
her blog and leave a comment there.
Jane said 'The dies I used are called Magnificent Christmas but I left out the Santa hats, by Yvonne Creations. The owls and branches are cut from snippets, of course, and the border is a scrap left from a sheet of 12 x 12 that has made numerous cards. It had a scallop border all the way round, so I cut a strip with border and background from one side and then added a strip from another edge of the sheet. Instead of backing the owls in another colour or piecing in the breasts and beaks, I coloured them in with fine markers.'
And here's the lovely lady herself, I love this photo of Jane:
BTW, I have a list here of
So, let's move onto my picks from this past fortnight:
That's my three picks - as always a very hard choice, especially to keep down to just three. I focused very much on ingenious ways to use snippets which might inspire you - and could still have added loads more! We had 77 (whoop, whoop!!) Playmates joining in this past fortnight - with three new little friends joining us:
In the interests of speed you may have noticed that whereas I do adds a few words still about the fortnightly picks (mainly to say why I picked them) - I no longer add a few words underneath our 'new Playmate' entries, I hope you do go and say hello to them though!
And, I do so urge you to nip over and check out Sarah's account of making this sun catcher - some of you have already been and had a good giggle I see :) It will brighten your day I promise and perhaps we should appoint Sarah as our resident story teller/class comedienne!
Welcome girls! Hope you came back and play with us again :)
Prize draw time now and our winner of the Sizzix 'Let's Travel' die set and the Avery Elle 'Handwritten Notes' sentiments stamp set is:
That was a really popular prize and, as so often happens, I just wish everyone could have been a winner - sigh.
Keep those snippets entries coming, you still have a week left to play HERE remember!
Love from the little white peril and me
