Juan, Noel and a couple of cheeky penguins...

Here are some of the cards produced from the One Sheet wonder technique on Wednesday. My new Noel die was popular too. For template ideas for your "Juan Sheet" Christmas cards check out our board on Pinterest.

Michelle's chirpy penguins were popular too, as were her other die cut ideas. See below for interpretations of her designs.

We also judged the latest bi-monthly craft challenge which was to create a new card from an old card. It is always a tough choice, but we both liked the way Mandy used several cards and a holly punch to create her wreath. The different shades of green chosen help to add depth to the wreath. In particular we liked how she had used the front of a 'window card' as a stencil to create her own window on her new card. See pic below

And here are the other entries to show what a tricky choice we had:

A lot of work went into this one and we liked the clever use of the old card as the view from the window. The robins on the window ledge were also from the original card.

We liked the new layout of this card, using selected elements from the original, and the coordination of the colours with the matting and layering.

Cute picture chosen for this card with careful use of repeated, doggy-themed stamping to create the border.

This card was neatly presented and excellent layout. We also liked the interactive nature with the penny spinner element.

Well done to all and hope you have already started to think about your new challenge - a Christmas decoration for a Secret Santa type swap at the November workshop.
