"Birthday Presents" by Virginia Nebel
Supplies List - Cardstock: Neenah; Patterned paper: Echo Park, Jillibean Soup; Embellishments: My Minds Eye, KaiserKraft; Alphabets: Jillibean Soup

Variation #1 - I kept the card 4 x 7 but changed the orientation to landscape.

Variation #2 - Instead of stitching, I used striped twine.

Variation #3 - I used various sized circle punches to cut out snowflakes from patterned paper accented with jewels in the middle.

“Merry & Bright” by Andrea Friebus
Supply list - Cardstock: American Crafts; Patterned paper: We R Memory Keepers; Alphabets: Little Yellow Bicycle, American Crafts, Jenni Bowlin Studios; Embellishments: Crate Paper, Imaginisce, Jillibean soup, Kaiser Craft; Embroidery floss: DMC; Ink: Clearsnap

Variation #1- Instead of a card, I made a one-page layout so I had to stretch the sketch a little bit taller to make it work for my page.

Variation #2 - Since my layout was already very linear, I decided to stitch wavy, loopy lines for the snowflakes, rather than the straight lines in the sketch.

"Snow Work" by Suzanna Lee
Supply List - Cardstock: Coredinations; Patterned paper: Little Yellow Bicycle, Echo Park, Best Creations; Letter stickers: Lily Bee; Stickers: Little Yellow Bicycle; Stamps: Unity Stamps; Glitter: Martha Stewart; Bling: Container Store; Die Cuts: Recollections

Variation #1 - A layout!! Not a card. And, likely, not a surprise! I kept the over all placement of the elements with the strips and dangling snowflakes but had to stretch it all to fit my 12 x 12 layout.

Variation #2 - I used bling upon which to dangle my snowflakes from.

Virginia, I like how you flipped the sketch and did your card sideways. That penguin is adorable.

Andrea - Your layout is perfect with your title. His face is looking very 'merry & bright'. The stitched lines look awesome too.

Suzanna - I love what you did with this collection. The bling instead of stitching and the embossing are great touches. Very nice.
