Here's a Christmas card that uses mostly snippets. All the patterned papers come from a vintage-themed pack, which I just keep in a baggie along with all the snippets that get created from it. The layout uses the current sketch from SCS, and as I was looking through the snippets, I realized I could basically build this layout with snippets. The red edges, for instance, were a 2-inch piece I sliced into 1-inch panels, and the starry strips weren't cut at all, just trimmed off the edge.
Because everything is built on a cream base card, it was just a matter of figuring out the order to apply panels (I started with red on the sides, added green in the middle, then put on the starry strips, covering the gap between the two). The central image was part of an already-cut page from the set that contains small elements -- the image was rectangular but nothing was lost by die-cutting it. The sentiment strip is also cut from that same page, making both snippets.
