On behalf of a Friend!

I am posting this on behalf of a dear friend, Jane, who doesn’t have a blog. This is her first ever attempt at something like this, and indeed will be the first challenge she has ever entered!

This is what she had to say about it

I have had a Sizzix eClips for some time, and finally got round to using it with a kit from SVGcutz - Maple Manor. It was originally designed for Halloween, but my challenge to myself was to make a Christmas house only using my existing stash! I used a co-ordinated pad of paper from Martha Stewart, a winter wonderland tree from Tim Holtz's ideology range that I sprayed with Perfect Pearls and other embellishments from my stash. I loved making it and learned a lot about paper engineering!

I think it’s pretty darned good for a first attempt and hope you do too!

Jane I salute you!
