Day 3 Christmas in August Blog Hop!

All of this week, the Dream Team and the Woodware UK teams are celebrating the release of the new holiday designs from Dreamweaver Stencils. Of course, no celebration is complete without prizes...and there are some fabulous ones for those commenting on both sides of the "pond".
Each team will be providing the opportunity to win four prize packages of stencil designs, perfect for the holidays. Just leave your comments each day on each players' post as well as the Dream It Up! and Woodware UK blogs, and the Dreamweaver and Woodware Facebook pages. Two random commentors will be chosen from the batch of weekday posts, one each from the DW and WW Facebook pages, and from the big hop on Saturday...from each side of the pond!* That's a total of eight prize packages up for grabs! Here's what you could win:
Here's another wonderful new stencil that we've been having fun creating with this week, the darling new Mittens stencil (LJ923). It is so versatile and looks great in a wide variety of techniques. This one couldn't be easier, paper piecing.

LJ923 Mittens
Dry embossed with paper piecing over
First dry emboss the mittens on green cardstock (either with a stylus or thru a machine), sand the design lightly to enhance the outline. Lay the stencil over some decorative paper and use a black Micron pen to outline the hands of the mittens. Cut out the paper close to the black line, but do not cut off the black line. Adhere to the embossed image with a light coat of liquid glue. Trace the cuffs on white felt (I used adhesive backed felt so I traced it on the back of the felt, remember to turn your stencil to the back too), cut out the felt and adhere them to the cuff area of the mittens. A little green and white bakers twine completed the picture!
Don't forget to leave me some holiday cheer as you move on to the other players for today Wednesday, August 22nd:
  
Remember to follow along with the challenges on the Dream It Up! and Woodware UK blogs for more prize opportunities, and more crafty inspiration, as well as "liking" DW and WW on Facebook.
 *Winners selected must be from USA/Canada/UK only.
Happy Creating,
Louise
