Pixie's Snippets Playground - Week 163

SCREAM!!! No idea how it happened but I managed to lose the weekly snippets post on Tuesday evening while I was composing another unrelated post !! Most of you will have already seen it and here's the snippets make I did - using the Spellbinder Chevron die (with a Brushos background inset)


And this is this week's prize of course:

All your comments are safe, Janis knows she won last week, the rules are the same and I have to see if I can retrieve the previous Mr Linky entries OK (phew, managed that too!!) - oh poo - I do so NOT need this!! Am sorry but have no time to re-do the weekly picks though. Good grief, what a pickle!!

  7. Super duper card you have made. The brusho background is a perfect foil for the die cut. Putting all the furniture back in the newly painted bedroom today without marking any walls!I Need to go and lie down already. hugs Mrs A.

  8. OMG - now you tell me! I have so many tiny snippets of dp that I try and sandwich between the bigger pieces. I never thought of sticking envelopes to the back of a pad. I'm getting excited at all that organising - please do a post on how you do this :-)

    Terrific card today. I would still be on the floor searching for those pieces that flipped out! Great picks, as usual. Congrats to all those mentioned.

  13. Your card today is terrific. I would love a chance to win that Spellbinders die. You made a beautiful card with it. Your top picks this week are really outstanding. I entered this week with the heart cut from a snippet of pink cardstock I've been using this month for Valentines. I may have to get some Brusho's now!!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Love that card and what a great way to use up the Brusho background. Please pop my name in 'the hat' this week because that is a die I'd really love to own - good luck everyone!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Oh, ta for that, Di. Would you believe I use those boxes, in white from Ikea, right now, and just put my pads upside down to try and keep the snippets inside. I deffo need to use your envelope trick, and your tip of adding some tape on the pad spine to keep it together. Murky buckets :-)

  32. Another great snippet card, Di, though I don't think I would have the patience you clearly have to inlay all those chevrons and diagonals :) However, it was well worth effort and the brusho background is gorgeous - love the colours. This week's showcase is fab too. Congratulations to Janis on her win. Off to have a look at some snippet makes now. Hugs, Elizabeth xx

  47. That's a really interesting die! It is perfect for those homemade backgrounds you have whipped up. The top picks are always interesting to see, many of them I have visited because they caught my eye in the thumbnail, which is sure why they are top picks. So much creativity in our playground! Dio made a card and want to play this week.
