    1. Yes, it's quite easy to do, but be warned that the project takes as long as the layers of paint need to dry. :) I used a heating tool to speed it up for me and I waited quite a bit. Have fun and feel free to share it here in the comments or in the Stampendous Challenge gallery.

  21. I could not believe this was a book. What a fabulous idea! A cool new twist on using books. Remember all that folding we did with the Reader's Digests to get the angels and santas?
