The Christina Collection - Paper Piecing and Creative Expressions :D

As soon as I saw the Trellis Dies from Christina's collection, I knew I had to do paper piecing with them!! It did take me hours to create them (while watching the telly) but it's actually quite addictive once you get going :D Some of the shapes aren't exactly symmetrical, but once you've done a few it gets much easier to know which way round to put the pieces, and there are literally hundreds of patterns you can create, and you can use any number of different pieces of coloured card to create your patterns too :D I thought as the backgrounds took so long to make, that I would keep the decoration simple, so I decided to team them up with some Creative Expressions dies, using a couple of round frames from Sue Wilson and the Stylish Script word dies from Lisa Horton :D I really like how they turned out, and as you've seen in the video I have lots of pieces left to make more cards from :D :D : D
