Christmas Shadow Box Class - The finished projects

  About a week and a half before Christmas I held my Christmas Shadow Box class.  Here is the sample that I made to show my stamping ladies.  I had 3 ladies sign up for the class and it was so nice to get to sit and chat with them while they made their shadow boxes.  This is a pretty easy project and would make a great gift for next year---it's never too early to start planning for next Christmas is it??  I've already told myself that I'm going to make 10 Christmas cards each month starting in January so I'll be all ready once December rolls around.  We'll see if I can stick to it---you guys will have to keep me accountable!

  Anyway, back to the boxes...2 of my stamping ladies hadn't worked with Decor Elements before so they were a bit wary but they did fantastic and their frames looked great.  I took a photo of each completed project and it was so fun to see how different they all were depending on the paper and ribbon they choose.  I apologize for the poor photo quality...the dim lighting and the glass made for a tough setting.  It's hard to see but on the Very Vanilla cardstock there are a bunch of snowflakes punched out and adhered making it look almost embossed.

  I'm looking forward to stamping in 2011 with all of my stamping ladies.  I have 2 hostess club spots still available so if you're in the Richmond area and are interested in joining our group and earning hostess benefits just let me know and I'll give you all the details.
