New Zoe and Noel pretties.



I cut out the tree shape free-hand but then practiced cutting up the tree middles on scratch paper. I punched holes in the pages to simulate ornaments and used the fabric presents paper at the base of the pages to hold them steady. A softie charm at the top and my centerpiece is complete.

Nikki Peterson and I did a photo swap so I paired this B&W self-portrait photo with the brightness of Zoe. I love the negative space created with a white background. I want to do a ton more with this line. Its so fresh.
Here's the latest update on the RVKC December Kit! Its going to be so merry and bright! Go check out the clearance sale starting Nov. 15th in the A.M.!!

I'd love to see your tree pattern...i'm sure you are super busy, but even if you could just post a little more detail on how you put it together, that would be awesome. Thanks for all the eye candy.

Thank so much for posting your directions on how you made the tree. I loved this tree when I saw it on Elsie's blog, and I even had asked for the directions. It's so cute! Hope to have one soon in my scraproom, it's lacking Xmas decor.
