A Christmas Home Decor item - Christmas Sampler

Every Tuesday afternoon, two ladies come to class to create, they started 6 months ago as total beginners, neither had stamped before. They enjoy their couple of hours with us and are always amazed that they have produced something they are proud of. We have completed enough Christmas cards and a christmas garland so we are now moving onto a home decor item but have decided to do it over two weeks as there is so much work involved.

The sampler is  mixture of new and retired sets, the cookie cutter was a bit modern for the ladies so I have looked back to my stash to find something I knew they would like. I have also looked at all the techniques we have done and tried to use as many as possible, so its a bit of a revision course!

The pictures are not great this morning as its very dark outside. Just to complicate matters we have had a fire extinguisher put in the craft studio and it now stands out in the background of the best place for taking photographs, so do I have the fire extinguisher moved or do I find another place for taking pictures????

In terms of techniques we have water colouring, heat embossing, die cutting, punching,  daubing, stamping and bow tying which always seems to be the one that is found to be the most difficult there is a little bit of fussy cutting, wonder if you can spot that? 
More importantly can you spot the fire extinguisher?
