Hello everyone! Welcome back for Day 5 of the "12 Days of Christmas" with My Creative Time! Today is one of my favorite projects so far! Technically, it's an easy project, but it did take quite a bit of time to put together. I hope you like it as much as I do. :)
I decided to take it up a notch and make something a little different. This is a 12x12 home decor piece. To make this beautiful and fun Christmas Tree, I used ONLY the heart die from the My Creative Time ~ 100% Sweetness stamp set. No, I'm not kidding...just one die! Of course I had to cut out about a bazillion of those hearts, but doesn't it look great???
Let's start at the bottom. The super fun presents are actually from the Peachy Keen Stamps ~ Snow Gifts stamp set. I paper pieced them and added little gems to the center of their bows. Moving up the tree, you can get a better look at the dimension with all of the hearts. I used various size of pop dots and alternated layering them to achieve the look.
Ok, so can you imagine the OCD nightmare of this project??? LOL. To place all the hearts in the right order and then to add all of those little gems to the tree. Don't even ask me how long that took!!! LOL. I know some of you out there have that magical gene where you just "throw stuff together" and it all looks perfect. Well, somehow - I missed out on that gene!!! So, yes - this took FOREVER!!!
All of the patterned papers for the tree and the presents and the title came from: the Recollections ~ Sugar Plums collection, the Recollections ~ Holly Day Wishes collection and the Recollections ~ Jolly Holiday collection. The background piece is from the Die Cuts With A View ~ Heirloom Christmas collection.
The bow for the tree topper is made from the beautiful Celebrate It ~ Ribbon Boutique ribbon. Isn't it gorgeous? And in the center, I put a little star gem from my stash.
The "Merry Christmas" title is made with the super terrific My Creative Time ~ Lower Case Fun Dies. They are PERFECT for scrapbook pages!!!
And the holly in the corners is made with the holly stamp in the My Creative Time ~ From Our Family To Yours stamp set. I cut them out and then added little red gems for the berries.
Just something a little different for you today. Not as easy as the other projects, but I hope you enjoy it just as much!
