Hi Everyone - Lowri here and welcome to Week 3 of our Christmas Countdown. Earlier today we announced the winner of the Week One Challenge - check out all the lovely entries here and Congratulations to Carol who won the Merry Medley Collection from Kaisercraft!
What a great week of inspiration we have had from the Design Team again! We saw layouts, an album, a paper wreath and a fabulous tutorial showing how to make a hexagonal exploding box from Lisa.
Design Team News
Sandy was featured in GingerScraps on-line magazine - take a look here. This gorgeous photo was one of a few featured - it makes me want to reach out and touch the screen it's so lovely!
Featured Project of the Week Jess Mutty from the US is a wonderfully talented crafter with a blog filled with inspiring projects and photographs. This week she created this AMAZING Advent Banner for her family
She has hand-made all the bags and envelopes and the attention to detail on this project is just so gorgeous. I also saw she has just posted some cards on her blog that are stunningly stylish - so take a look and say a friendly **HI!!** from New Zealand!
