Snippets and Winners!!


'Snippets and Winners'
A great name for a new firm of solicitors, don't you think ? ;-)
Whilst tidying up the craft room yesterday , I came across a pile of paper flowers, which I'd cut about a year ago when I was in 'Sizzix ' mode and making cards for the V&H Fair.
The cards had all sold out and so I thought, 'Right, Sal..tis card making in the morning!'


Simple yet effective...if you have a sizzix machine then all the better!


I just love doing things like this because in no time at all you have..an instant result!
Talking of results...I finished off these, at the weekend:




I've made them bigger than the usual needle case size .





Inside, there is also a space for threads which you might not want to throw away!

They will be for sale at the Fair...and in my blogshop .
I've included some needles and threads.


I then finished off these scented mats!
(I know..I need to get out more!!)






Finally... Sal's Snippets Giveaways..here they are, all bundled up and ready for the off...

The name out of the hat for my first giveaway:

looks like you've been very constructive and busy. Those cards are great - they look really spring like with all those lovely colours - just the antidote to all this white and grey and monochrome landscape.

And on a cold January day early in 2010, people all over the world were "googling" "sizzix"....... (well this person was.......). Lucky winners, that's all I can say! Well done them! Keep writing about the next Fair Sal, there has to be something colourful to look forward to...:O)

Lovely - you are clever - a preponderence of pink again I see Sal. What exactly is a sizzix machine I would like to know.

Well you have certainly leapt into the new year with a spring in your step and busy little fingers. The cards look fab (I dabble in a little card making myself) and the colour combos in all your lovely sewing work extremely well. Congratulations to the two winners :)

Flower Girl said...

Wow, you've been busy! Lovely to see those colourful florals on this cold, wet, miserable Monday! Rebecca x

A Thrifty Mrs said...

Well done those winners!

You have made such beautiful items, you must be keeping very busy.

Snippets and Winners would be a fantastic law firm I agree.

Country Cottage Chic said...

There really is no stopping you Sal.....have you ever made just 1 thing??? I Wish I could be like that :(
Well done to the winners :) x

Hi Sal,

I'm so pleased that I've won your giveaway. I can remember buying patchwork packs from Laura Ashley in the 80's and making small items from them. I was so upset when they stopped making them. Thank you Sal, I'm thrilled.

Woauh ! tes cartes sont superbes !!! J'aime bien les couleurs, c'est très gai.
En français, nous disons de quelqu'un qui fabrique de jolies choses avec ses mains "qu'il a de l'or dans les doigts". Malheureusement, je ne sais pas traduire cet idiome en anglais.
In just can say you have a great talent !

Bobbie Lynn said...

Very happy cards there Sal. I love the fabric you used on those lovely needle cases and mats. Wishing you a very happy day.

Shirl said...

Congratulations to the winners. I can see you have been very busy!

No, I like it when you don't get out too much, it means more for us to look at!
Glad you're going to join in the 20 minutes daily crafting. Well done with your 20 minutes today. Forgive me if I don't check in with you every day as I now have 19 bloggers joining in. If I check everyone every day I won't be able to find time for my 20 minutes. Lol.
Anyway there is enough of us now to all encourage each other.

Keep posting your work though.

Love Fi x
