Pinwheels in the Clouds

   Can I just say that I LOVE the fun, easy and cheap Pinwheel Sizzlit?? I missed the deadline for the Stampin' Royals sketch I used, but I also used it for the Crafty Ribbons challenge for "Anything Goes with Ribbon", the Craft Your Passion challenge to use an odd number of embellishments, Crafts and Me challenge for Punches/Dies, the Crafting Cafe "Favorite Color" theme, and again, ABC Challenges "Anything Goes".

   Since I went sort of technique/time heavy on the other club card, I tried to give them a break on this one, but the two notable things we did was learning to ruffle the Seam Binding Ribbon (this also works with the Satin ribbon), by pulling 2 or 3 strands from the center with tweezers and scrunching the ribbon down to create this effect. Also, with the Teeny Tiny Wishes and the Itty Bitties images, (with so many combinations to choose from, many of my girls had completely different sentiments), I punched a Word Window out of Basic Black Cardstock to use as a template. Then we stamped our Teeny Tiny sentiment, and then laid out the template over the stamped sentiment and centered it top-to-bottom, with extra space on the right for the Itty Bitties image and stamped it in that space for a perfectly punched combo.
