{KKS} Circles!

Hey there! This weeks KKS challenge is CIRCLES! I made a gift/treat bag tag with a circlular focal panel atop a circle snowflake die! The bit of DP features some little round snowmen as well. I used the lovely new set from our very own Krafty Girl, Becky, called The Magic of Christmas...
I added some loose glitter to that snowflake die, and some machine stitching and a black clothespin finish it off!

Check out the Krafty Blog for more details on how YOU can play in this weeks challenge!

{SPD} Falling for Fall

This weeks challenge at SugarPea Designs is Falling for Fall! I've used the sweet Bountiful Blessings stamp set. I coloured her using the 'no lines' technique. The main panel was cut using the Zig Zag Stitched Rectangle SugarCuts, and the sunflower was made using an MFT die. The DP is the new Echo Park 'Story of Fall'...I love this pad. I added some machine stitching and natural twine. 

We only have a few rules…
  • Play along with ANY stamps and dies you’d like – Winner is chosen at random to keep things fair, but if the winners project features a SugarPea Designs stamp we will increase the voucher to $15
  • Feel free to combine our challenge with any other challenge(s)
  • Upload to your blog or other online gallery using keyword: SPD20 so we can easily find your work.
  • Add your name and link to your card or project in the InLinkz shown HERE
