Just Us Girls #391 - Wild Card Week


Hello Crafters! Judy here, and I'm your host this week for WILD CARD!! It's the fifth Saturday of the month, and we are going wild about PAPER PIECING!!! For the paper piecing technique you stamp your image on plain paper and then stamp again on patterned paper. After that you fussy cut out the parts of patterned paper you want to piece. See the examples below for a better explanation.

Just look at what our Guest Designer Laurie has done with this technique.

nothing but cold rainy weather.

Thank you to all who participated in our
Photo Week challenge last week!
Again, you don't disappoint with your
creative genius!

Chic of the Week:
