It's Snowing with Doilies!

 Happy Friday everyone!!! A few years back I learned a technique to make a snowflake with a square die from the Spellbinders Collection from a tutorial at Splitcoast Stampers...When I saw these new Nesting Doily Square dies that Jean got into the store at I knew I wanted to try this out! I love the results!! I hope you enjoy them too!
The noticeable difference in this die set and the Spellbinders Fleur de Lys is first the cuts--more filigree type cuts in the Spellbinders. However, you only have the 2 sizes to work with in that set and in this set there are 5. I chose the two sizes that were closest to the Spellbinders dies to test run this snowflake pattern.
For this project I cut the second from the largest and the second from the smallest. The QuicKutz dies are SIGNIFICANTLY nicer to cut with for this project--because you will want to do this if you have them. They have padding in the punch out holes...why is this significant you ask?? Because the die automatically evacuates the holes it cuts from the die...rather than YOU poking each one out of the die!!! It makes the die cut better and saves you a TON of work.
I love these new square doilies and will be making more snowflakes and using them in several projects!!

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
