It has been awhile since my last post, I really don't know how time passes so quickly!  Anyway, as you will see I have been really busy making lots of Christmas projects because that time of the year is looming up on us again.

Rosette Tree:  I have been wanting to make this tree ever since I first saw it at the Stampin' Up! regionals two years ago. I saw a tree on Pinterest and got a tutorial from there. I have been looking for the name of the person who pinned it and can't find it now. There are quite a few on there if you have a look.  From there this is what I came up with.  If you would like a copy of the instructions just let me know and I will forward them to you.

The original ideas for the tree came from both The Gentleman Crafter and the Archiver’s Blog

Below left:  This is a card we made at our last team meeting Felicity showed us how and we used the Merry from the Expressions Thinlits  Dies 132171 $42.95 .  In this instance we backed it with some silver glimmer paper and I just love the effect.

Below right is the card I made using the actual Merry cut out.  I also used the woodgrain embossing folder and the hexagon punch and you can't see it very well in the photo but one of our beautiful Frosted Finishes Embellishments 132150 $11.95 for 12 pieces.  They are simply stunning!
