This will be for my dining room table. I used the Big Deal Alpha with the Four Seasons papers. Filled in with various SU buttons and ribbons .... and the flexible phrases are awesome for accenting! This was a frustrating project ... but I'm pretty pleased with the results! I know that my family will enjoy it ... and that's what matters to me. :)

Okay .... I pm'd a few of you ... but realize this would be faster.
I started with 12x12 cardstock and cut two strips at 3". One strip, cut 1" off the end. Score at 3" sections. Tuck your one short one behind the full strip and adhere together. Then I just used cardstock and ds papers to layer. Used the big deal alphabet, tone-on-tone ink/paper. Added various SU buttons and ribbons. The little word tabs were all done in cl. to coca from flexible phrases!
I love all the home decor and "personalized" decor is SO popular in all the stores. I'd LOVE to see what you all come up with!! Designing this was frustrating for me, just because I felt limited since I was strictly using Four Seasons papers ..... and trying to keep it simple ..... but after completing it ... I see it's VERY easy to duplicate and thinking about this for my customers. The same idea would work well for "winter" with the large snowflkae from "The Snowflake Spot" for the first square. Oh great .... now I suppose I'll have to come up with one on those for my table in a couple months! :)
