Here's my snippets make for this week, well, it's really more 'how to use snippets' 'cos a lot of it was cut from whole 6" x 6" papers - shame on me. But, when I saw how Katina had used scraps of leftover patterned paper in this month's 'Quick Cards Made Easy' magazine she did me such a huge favour. A while ago I bought a paper pack with lovely bright pinks, black, cream and grey papers in - then sat wondering for ages how to use them as (to me) they were much too bold to use as backings to images. So, thanks to Katina, out they came and this is the result:
- 5" x 5" square white card stock
- papers from the Echo Park paper pad called 'Be Mine', cut into 1" strips and fishtails cut into the ends - with a double strip of paper across
- sentiment by Elzybells, stamped in Memento 'Tuxedo Black' onto a snippet of white card (YAY!), then layered onto a snippet of black card (double YAY!) and the pink reverse of one of the EP papers
- black Josy Rose nail heads
Right, Playground time now. We've had two new little Playmates calling in this week, Sue and Eve, I do hope you can find time to go and say hello to them.
Sigh, it gets harder each week to pick 'Show and Tell' makes that you bring 'cos they're all gorgeous - but here goes:
This is real dedication to snippets - Bonnie hand cut each of those little hexagons to fit into the embossed spaces!
Mary Mac made such a fun card, using her Playground prize from the other week - those feathers crack me up - pun intended :)
Despite being so busy, Jules brought us this adorable card to show - I love the image loads and the embossing folder is perfect (just like tyre tread - sigh after my experience during the week) don't you think? As loads of you will know, Jules started the Playground off and without that we could be buried under our snippets :) So a big cheer for our Patron!!!
And Viv reappeared (carrying a forged excuse note from her 'Mum') with this beautiful pale pink/white card - lovely use of snippets, I have tons of white and cream to use up and bet I'm not alone either!
Believe me, there are so many great ideas and ways to use snippets - so I do urge you to check out Mr Linky here - Mrs A even made a wine carrier, using little material snippets fro the vine leaves - 'quelle surprise', a wine carrier from Mrs A?!?! Great innit!
So, now onto the draw for the lovely Memory Box die, so kindly donated by Shaz in Oz.
And the winner is........................................................
Well done Irene! Can you please drop me an email reminding me of your address and I'll post the die to you ASAP.
And this coming week's prize should appeal to you Playground Girlies - kindly donated by Viv, thank you so much!
The Playground is open all of this coming week but it will close on Saturday 30th March at noon, UK time and Mr Linky is below as usual. Just enter a snippets make into the Playground this week and I'll do a draw after the Playground closes next Saturday. But, as usual I am asking for a snippets make please, maximum of three entries and please say 'No thank you' in a comment if you wish to still play but not be a winner of this beautiful stamp set - no colouring needed :))
Enjoy the rest of the weekend, stay warm, safe and have a lovely week!
