The Big Cheese of the Week

Hi there!

It is time to pick our weekly Big Cheese winner, and boy, do I have some eye candy for you today! We have three holiday projects to share that are just full of inspiration.

Our Big Cheese winner for this week is Helen, who created a jaw-dropping amazing mixed media canvas using the cottage from A Cottage Christmas.

I'm at a loss for words. Just fantastic, from the cozy cottages decked for the holidays, down to the stitched felt snow drifts. A labor of love, to be sure, but what results! I imagine this looks outstanding displayed for the holidays, and it certainly is an inspiration to try something paper crafty outside of the 'card zone'. I've seen these craft canvases at my local store, and I would really love to give one a try now! Amazing, Helen!

Helen, your project will be added to the Big Cheese highlight album in the WMS Gallery. Please send me an email and I will provide you with a discount code for $10 off (the price of a small set!!) your next Waltzingmouse Stamps purchase.

Up next is the cutest little tag from Dana Gustafson.

Easy? Check. Festive? Check. Super cute? Check! What a great combination of elements, from the chenille candy cane to the music background. My favorite part? The glitter on the Labels 18 edge! What a great look. If not adorning a present under the tree, this baby would look right at home hanging on the tree as well.

Rounding things out for today is another great idea brought to us from Cyndie.

How sweet! This container started its first life as an ice cream tub, but Cyndie has transformed it into holiday packaging for some shortbread cookies. The embossed dotted background adds instant elegance and the paper pieced holly and berries from Sewing Box Christmas add major holiday cheer. And really, it is a great (and green!) idea to recycle such a useful container! Makes me want to think twice about what is in my recycling bin.

Ladies, you are ALL outstanding! Thank you so much for your hard work and contributions to the WMS Gallery! We're so glad you're a part of it!
