Technique time at CSAYL!

Hiya, happy you're all ready for the weekend!
We have a new challenge for you today over at 
and this week the theme is "Papercrafting Techniques"
Each of the CSAYL designers chose their favourite technique this
week and now you just need to pick one of the teams faves & play along!
We're sponsored this time by the fabby Broken Box Stock with a 
prize of 3 digis for our lucky winner & you have until 24th July to play.
The DT were lucky enough to choose a digi to play....I chose the
sweet Santa Hat Cat and I made a scallop circle easel card....maybe more 
of a fancy fold than a technique but I think it's a fab, quick & easy 
make & always looks good! I used Spectrum Noir pens, a few 
snowflakes, ribbon, gems, a computer generated sentiment and that's
 it.......hope you like it & feel inspired to come join us!
Thanks for calling today....see you soon!
