You'll also receive 23 perfectly sized digital cutting files giving you options for each project. That means you can get creative and personalize your set just the way you'd like. This class includes the wood for 4 projects! You have 3 options for enrollment. 1.) Receive the 1 pre-cut wood kit in the mail once you're enrolled (US residents only). 2.) Receive 2 pre-cut wood kits in the mail once you're enrolled (US residents only) — these make great gifts. 3. Provide your own wood (templates will be provided).

What You'll Learn

I'll walk you through every step from downloading the class materials, painting the wood, setting up the files and cutting the vinyl. We'll walk through the vinyl application and finishing touches. We'll also create the cute little house using chipboard/cardstock. The class comes with a printable PDF guide. You'll craft right along with me and leave class feeling more confident in your Silhouette and/or Cricut cutting machine skills.

Class Features

• My step-by-step video lessons include preparing and sending the cutting files to cut in Silhouette Studio Version 4 AND Cricut Design Space. Have you ever wondered what the workflow is for "the other machine"? Now is your chance to take a peek and see exactly how you'd do this project using both Silhouette and Cricut machines. There will be separate sections for each machine so you can watch just one or both if you'd like. PLUS how to apply the vinyl and finish your projects. You can stop, rewind, and restart the videos as many times as you'd like.

• You'll get 23 downloadable cutting files needed to complete this class - the same ones I use in the videos (and extra) - to follow along with me. You'll also receive a printable PDF guide with photos and illustrations. You'll find a materials list below so you can start collecting your supplies like paint and vinyl.

• If you have questions during your class, each lesson features an interactive comments section where you can ask questions, share your creations, and interact with me and the other students.

• All of the videos will be available 24/7 FOREVER from your course home page at Your class does not expire.

• Once enrolled, you'll also be invited to join Lori's private Tiered Tray Decor Facebook page so you can interact with Lori and your classmates.

• If you choose to buy the wood kit, you'll receive a package in the mail from me with all the pre-cut wood you'll need to complete these 4 adorable tiered tray decor projects in class!! This is so exciting!
*Note: The 4 painted wooden decor projects are included in this class. The tiered tray, pinecones, beads, and greenery are NOT included.
