Pie Chart

Picture 7

I couldn’t resist featuring Ronda’s Pie Chart again. Do you see that little stencil in the middle of it all?  It just happens to be in the Cocoa Daisy February Kit too, but that’s not why I’m featuring it. I just love how the Cocoa Daisy designers used it and showed the many sides of this very funky stencil. You can click on Ronda’s blog here and read more about each designer. Or you can click on the individual designers and read their blogs.  Here is a layout by Lisa Saunders.














And here is another layout by Denise Morrison.

Fun, right? So if you’re a kit-kinda’-gal (or guy!!), Cocoa Daisy just might have what you’re looking for next month.

Cyndi Bundy came to play at our demo station at the CHA show in Anaheim (this is a show open to retailers and professionals in the crafting industry.)
