Wonderus Wood Sheets

I had my quarterly downline get together over the weekend. I love these events! This month our make and take project featured the NEW Wood Sheets from page158 in the Idea Book & Catalog. These wood sheets are fantastic! They are thin enough to use in a paper trimmer, but have a layer of REAL wood on them! They add a beautiful natural element to your projects.

The first card I made was a copy out of the catalog, with a few tweeks. This card uses the Upsy Daisy stamp set, Melon Mambo, Crushed Curry, and Rich Razzelberry card stock, Rasperry Tart Designer Series Paper, Crushed Curry and Rich Razzelberry Classic ink, Wood Sheets, Organza ribbon, Big Shot & Matchbox die, Scallop Edge punch.

The next card was a simple Christmas card. The tree was colored with Garden Green and Really Rust markers and stamped on the wood piece that was cut out using the Top Note die and the Big Shot. It also features Real Red Grosgrain ribbon and the Jumbo Grommets, Dazzling Diamonds, 2-way glue and Cheery Chat Rub Ons.
This adorable notebook was made with the Scallop Square Big Shot die, which we stained using Pumpkin Pie classic reinker and an Aquapainter. Then we stamped the images using Craft and Staz On ink. To bind them together we stacked it all together and used the crop a dile to punch the hole and tied it with some ribbon.

My favorite project though, was this little wooden treasure box. We made it using the Matchbox die and the Big Shot. TIP when making boxes with the wood sheets, place them on the die wood side up. The wood will crack a when you fold it, but it is less noticeable when it is scored on the underside. We kept the box in its raw color. and just added some Old Olive wide grosgrain and vanilla narrow grosgrain ribbon and tied them on with some linen thread, and added a stamped image from the Pocket Silhouettes stamp set. Now I just need something fun to put in it!
