Here is a project I'm planning for a class this month-it can be either a card or a table top decoration-or both. It fits in the Small Open End envelope and uses Windsor knot DSP. I used Chocolate Chip Ink on Sage Shadow Paper. The Paper is 6" high and each panel is 3.25" wide. I am going to make these to send to a few special people in my life, I really hope some customers sign up for this class.

These are small wall hangings I made-all SU products except the wood they are on. They we very quick and easy, both are watercolored with watercolor crayons and aqua painter. I drilled the holes and just hammered in the eyelets they couldn't be set but they aren't going anywhere.

Here is my countdown to Christmas, I used an oval plaque from the craft store and wooden ovals, the edge is painted with crackle paint-this was my first experience with that. It was a bit of a pain the wood had to be sanded, sealed then painted. The oval is about 20x12 so I had to use two sheets of DSP to cover the front. The edge of the oval is beveled so I couldn't trace it-I rubbed a lead pencil around the curves to make a line to cut-then made a rough cut, pasted the paper down the used a craft knife to remove the overage. I then sanded and distress the edge. The little dots in the vinyl didn't stick to the backing and I had to pick each one off the transfer paper-ugh! the black stand is from that giant store that has every thing and was $3.89 or so. This is an amazing project much cuter in person, it did add up to be about $45.00 to make. The plaque was about 11.80 with coupon, decor element 24.95, paint, sealer, paper, little ovals were 3.25. I still have to make the rest of the numbers-so I had better finish this!

These are the five cards for The Christmas Card Stamp-a-stack. I have changed the Mr. Twigster card since the initial draft-I like this one much better. I hope you do too! These cards will hopefully be simple enough to finish quickly 3 of each.
