Finished just in the "Nick" of time

Today I finished up the remaining ornaments for my upcoming Cosmo Cricket Ornament classes. These chipboard and die-cut ornaments can be layered and embellished in many different ways. Most of the ornaments I finished today will be samples.

Time will not permit us to decorate the entire set of 40-some pieces, but we will make 6-10 complete ornaments in class. The great thing is that they can be used as tree ornaments, package decorations, page embellishments, or card elements.

The myriad ornament pieces had been sitting in my scrapping area too long. When I found Lily trying to eat buttons last night, I knew that today they needed to be finished.

It would not be good form for me to say, "I'm sorry, class. The cat ate your project."

Edited to add: Thank you for the nice comments about the ornaments! Fortunately, none were eaten by Miss Lily. :-) I should mention that I usually make extra kits for classes I teach. I always provide detailed instructions with photos and we often mail them to customers out of state. If you are interested in purchasing a kit for a class, feel free to contact the store where I teach by e-mail or phone and they can take care of your request. Thanks so much!
