    1. Some of the original images don't exist anymore and so we've updated them to use alternative images. Unfortunately, this happens a lot with free images. You can still follow the tutorial using similar images and get the same composition.

  1. This is lovely. It looks like a lot of work, but it's worth it! I might do something like this for next year's Christmas cards. Thank you for sharing. :)

  2. At first I thought this was going to be hard to follow, but the resource list was a real big help. Thanks for posting!
