    I just want to comment with a thousand exclamations!! I will stop myself at two. 🙂 This is beautiful, creative, funky, woodsy…etc. Really great idea and fab post. The frame is perfect, the stamps work so nicely. I am definitely filing this one away (little afraid of what might happen with me and saw…but I could be careful for once, right?)

    Oh! What a great idea!! It looks fantastic and completely do-able. You are about 80% on the way of convincing me to get the metal stamp set… I love all that you do with it.

    Wow. I LOVE this. Pinning it to my “crafty sh*t I may want to attempt in my next life” board. I think you have more creative thoughts between when you wake up and have coffee, than I have in an entire month… I am genuinely like—how did that even occur to you??

    I love the colors. The dark bark… against the white. Makes the inside color of the branch very rich somehow. I guess because it’s so simple you really notice the detail… LOVE it!

    Super cool Alex! It “leaves” me with so many ideas…. I could totally “branch” out with.

    You have come up with so many wonderful projects using that stamp tool. Totally worth whatever you paid for it because it has sparked so much creativity. And it looks so darn pretty… perfect little numbers and letters.

    It’s got a real nordic/natural/modern feel… and I know you love that. ME TOO! So pretty in the white frame. Any way you “slice” it… this one is a winner, lady! 🙂

    Somewhere I have a mitre box. AND stamp letters and numbers. AND a hammer. This is so creative and adaptable to many a project. Love it!!

    Oh I love natural wood! The Etsy shop I’m working on building embraces my love for natural wood, simplicity and inspiration!

    I will admit, I have a mitre box (the yellow one you pictured) but found to be really cheap. But I also got it on sale because the saw was missing (which I didn’t want the saw anyway). I wanted a saw with a bit more grip so now I just use my foot, an old pallet and my saw. hehe It works but I couldn’t use it for smaller projects like this, or I don’t think it would turn out as well but I might try! One day I’d like to get an electric saw.

    This is awesome! I’ve got some old typography letters I want to do a project with, and this is the perfect inspiration! (I posted about the letters here: http://richerfullerbe.blogspot.com/2013/02/barn-sales-what-came-home-with-me.html)

    Finnnnallllyyyy getting to read this. This is a really cool project and I didn’t want to skip it. I love all the things that you do with metal stamp set; it makes me want to get one. Such a crisp and clean way to capture your family and the wood is going to get better with age. Speaking of which… who has the April birthday? We’ll be celebrating (almost) together. 🙂

    Somehow I missed this post! But Mark and I are on a wood craze these days, so you get bet I’ll be pinning this and sharing this with him to say, “Please, oh pretty please, can we remember to do this when we have kids?!” It looks great in the white shadow box, too. Another project well done, my friend.

    This is TOO COOL! I love the stamped dates and I’m borderline obsessed with the card. Wish I had seen that last week, I attended a wedding Saturday.

    I actually have a bunch of slices of wood that would be perfect for this project. Thank you for the inspiration. Stopping over from Kelly at View Along the Way.
