12x12 layout

The above is a 12x12 layout which would look great on an easel at Christmas time to display your favorite Christmas cards or the photos that you receive in cards! After Christmas, place your favorite Christmas photos in the envelopes and display in an album.

In addition to the 12x12 layout for Jill's class, you will receive all the product to make 2 oversized ornaments, or 2 Christmas cards. It's your choice! Or you could make one card and one ornament. These oversized ornaments would look great hanging on garland! They are super cute!

The cost to take Jill's class is $22.00. The class is Sunday, November 8th at 10a.
Please bring your basic tool kit to class: adhesive, scissors, trimmer and brown ink pad.
