Ole’ Christmas Tree….

It’s Monday…..AND Halloween!!!! Happy Halloween Everyone!!! I hope you all have a “Spooktacular Day”!!!!  Can NOT believe tomorrow will be November 1st….WOW is this year flying by!!!!
So I was home all weekend……had planned to get out and do some things but that was changed as I was feeling quite yucky!!! ;(  BUT…Thank GOODNESS I’m feeling MUCH MUCH better today…..Figures….LOL….the day I go back to work!!   Oh….what’s a girl to do….have to continue to make money for the ARTHaven stash right!!!  
While home I decided I wanted to start working on some Christmas Tag Ideas……Of course one could use this for other things then just tags….but that’s the way I made these yesterday…….I’m hoping to make several other designs for Christmas……so if you like this one I hope you’ll check back more throughout the month……..But I’m tickled with the way this turned out and wanted to show it to you……





I chose 5 different designs of decorative Christmas papers to cut then interchanged all of them to make the layers of the tree……I cut the layer underneath each layer in the same green…..then a layer of tan….the tree trunk in tan…all with my FAVORITE tool…My Black Cat Lynx….”Sable”.. and then ran through my Go Baby with a wood grain embossing folder then hit with Jumbo Java Chalk ink to give it a woodsy look…….I adhered the tree to a red tag base……..I also use eyelets with my Crop-a-dile to reinforce the holes for the ribbon…..I used foam squares to raise the tree up off the tag base……..I distressed the edges all with Jumbo Java Chalk Ink and I also ran the layers of the tree through my Go Baby with a Merry Christmas embossing sleeve…then hit the raised surface with Jumbo Java Chalk Ink…..(surprise surprise huh….LOL)….
I added a snowflake charm for the star at the top of the tree and clear adhesive rhinestones for the bulbs on the tree…….then used some Stickles in Frosted Lace all around the layers of the tree…..I’m very very happy with the way these turned out and am excited to share these with you…….
So……do you like them????? Wanna make the tree yourself……well…okie dokie then….You can click on the image below and it will take you to My ETSY Store.....


Well….Guess that catches me up for the day….I so hope you like my tag…..As always always…THANK YOU so much for coming by to visit with me!!!!  I’ll have some exciting things to share in the coming couple of weeks….I’ve been asked to demo a few things for some companies so I do hope you’ll check back with me…I really think you’ll like them……So for now…it’s… Hi Ho…Hi Ho…..Off to work I go!!!   I wish you all a VERY blessed day and I’ll chat with you soon….I hope!!!
