Issue #342 December 12th 2012
As you put the final touches to all of your holiday preparations, we'll take a short Weekly Inkling vacation next week. We'll be back bright and early on December 26th for our annual Member Company Shop Hop and a stunning project tutorial.

Our wish for each of you is a beautiful holiday season with many memory making moments!

Merry Christmas,
The Splitcoast Crew

Our Artist in Residence answers your questions
Q: Nessa asked: " How do you line up and keep in place nesting dies, especially when cutting a frame in the Big Shot?"
A: I use removable Scotch tape to hold my dies in place. If you don't have any of that, you can always use the sticky part of Post-It Notes.
Feedback From Past Tutorials
Kathy Ann posted on the Egg Shell tutorial: "A class of 12-14 year girls made pendants for necklaces this past summer. The necklaces were a big hit and were so pretty. We used medium weight chipboard, painted black and bright colors of alcohol inks."
