Festival of Trees and weekly updates

Hi Everyone,
Feeling under the weather the past few days..yuck :(

Before I hop into today's projects...Here is October's Hostess Code. U7X7QYJG
Use the code when ordering from my online Stampin' Up! shop and be entered to a drawing to win the Hostess Rewards for the month. I'll be posting October's giveaway tomorrow. Stay Tuned :)

I have two projects to share, both with the Festival of Trees Stamp and Punch Bundle. I listed the supplies below.
The first is a card I made using some non-traditional Christmas colors (Sahara Sand and Silver). The sequins messed with the flash on my camera and I just couldn't get the photo to come out nice and bright like it is in person.
 The card is a standard A2 size card (4-1/4" x 5-1/2"). I stamped a few trees out with Sahara Sand ink and then stamped and punched out another tree to pop it off the card. It's hard to tell in the photo but I added some embossed ornaments on the trees with silver embossing powder and then embossed the sentiment. I matted the stamped section with Sahara Sand Cardstock that is cut at 4" x 5-1/4" and added the sequins. I went a little sequin happy :)

Next up is a tag. I kept the tag simple. I love the Tag Topper Punches for making quick tags for gifts.

To make the tag pop I folded a few of the trees in half to make them fan out.

Cricut Explore Design Space Video

Hi Everyone,
Happy Monday :)
Did I mention how much fun I'm having with the Cricut Explore? I know I did...I just love this machine.

Today's video is a walk through of the features and buttons on the Design Space program. It is so easy and makes the process of designing flow smoothly. Here is a video on some basics of Design Space.
I can't wait for the Print and Cut feature to come out this week :)
