There are some AMAZING giveaways for this special 12 day event & some SURPRISES to help celebrate "My Creative Time's" One Year Anniversary! Yep, Emma released her 1st set of stamps one year ago! So make sure you are tuned in because this is ONE hop you do NOT want to miss!;)
Good morning everyone and welcome to day two of My Creative Time's Twelve Days Of Christmas! If you have came from Katie's blog then you are heading in the right direction! If not, please start at Emma's blog here!
I'm so excited to get to share my project with you today!! It was really simple to do but a little time consuming! I used three of Emma's products: Build A Banner (for the branches), All Around Christmas stamp set (for the sentiment), and the scallop and stitched circle die. I also used George and Basic Shape cartridge for the star and a SVG file from SVG Attic, Happy Haunt Halloween Party Kit (the witches hat) for the cone shape. I also have to give a shout out to Helmar! I used their acid free glue and it worked GREAT for this project! 
To start off, I cut the hat portion at fit to page and glued together. I used kraft cardstock for this. I then chose five different coordinating pattern papers from a older Christmas pad I've had for a couple of years (great way to use up paper hee hee) Instead of using my cuttlebug I used my Grand Calibur and starting cutting away using the two banner dies! I'll be honest I had no rhyme or reason to how I glued these on I just glued and prayed that at the end it would all work out and thankfully it did!! All together it took me about 4 hours (and that's with taking plenty of breaks) to get all the pieces cut and glued on. After I had that finished I then cut two stars and glued together (except for the bottom half. I left that  unglued so it would slip over the top of the tree) I then stamped my sentiment onto the stitched circle and added a ZapDot by Helmar underneath and placed it on top of the scallop circle. I then glued it to the star!

I'm so proud of my little Christmas tree! It is now probably displayed on my end table! I hope you like it to! Thanks for looking and now it's time to head over to Linsey's blog to see what she's made!
