For Christmas I received a set of Postcard Note Cards from a very sweet couple that always helps out at one of my husbands non-profits. So I was looking at them the other night and I was thinking about Frank and Karla and I thought well I should turn this into a Thank you Card for them and that’s what I did.

One of these shown is actually turned from one of the two trees at our house, the center one is Pecan. They made excellent Christmas presents this year for the family.

So when I get the chance I have been working on my set of letters for the ABC Books. I still need to complete letters O and P hopefully once the New Year is over things will start to slow back down. These books when they are complete will go to Methodists Children's Hospital Blue Birds Auxiliary for them to donate to New Moms. This Project is open to anyone that would like to help. It would be a great Service project for a Girl Scout troop, or Brownies, or even if you just want to help out a good cause. Please contacted me and I will send you the information needed along with supplies.

So here they all are!! Finally they are all finished!! I will put 2 trees per table for the party there is 5 tables! I think they came out very nice. Witch one is your favorite? Mine is the white one.
I had some comments on a forum about how to make these so here are the directions good luck and if you have any questions I will try to help you with a little more explanation.
All I ask is that you do not summit this project to be published without my OK. I came up with this idea just by looking at another picture in a magazine and it was a metal tree I believe.
3Demantali Christmas Tree
Cuttlebug Machine and spacers
Cuttlebug 2''x2'' Dies 4/pkg-Flower #1
Cuttlebug 2''X2'' Die-Snowflake #2 or Star punch
Something to punch a small hole not a hole punch size just a little smaller.
Thin Popsicle Sticks
Pretty paper of your choice for Tree and Star
Craft Glue and Glue Stick or glue dots
Cut your Flower dies from the paper that you’re planning to make your tree from, one of each 4.
Then cute 2 of the lager Star from the Snowflake die or use your Star punch.
Then punch your hole in the center of the 4 flowers.
Next cut a line between the scalps of the flower to the hole, do not cut the flower in two.
Now it’s time to assemble the tree, start with the larger flower first. You have a choice of gluing the flower overlapping one or two of the scalp parts of the flowers. (I made a verity of both types.) As you’re doing this you need to make sure that your stick will fit in the hole that you’re going to be leaving so as your gluing the flower you should check the popsicle stick if it will fit in the middle of the hole your leaving. You can put a little bit of the Craft glue to hold it in place on the Popsicle stick for the trees stem. You will do this for all 4 remember to start with the bottom up, leaving a small bit to attach the star.
Last but no means last you will glue your stars on the top of the stick. Hopefully you left some room on the stick. You should glue one star on one side and the other on the other side, back to back with the stick in the middle.
The tree is complete now; you will have to come up with your own stand. I used soda pop bottle leads. You could use clay and form it so that it looks like a dress skirt.
Hope this helps have fun in making them.

Friday I received my Birthday check form work Finally and then today I went to my mother in laws house there 2 other birthday items where waiting for me. They were in small envelopes. So when I opened them there was Money inside. Know I didn’t know that my husband had been spreading the roomer around that I wanted a Cricut the amount of money that I received from the gifts I was able to get the Cricut Expression for $199.00 at Wal-Mart!! I was so excited, although we did have to go to one Walmart to the next to find it but I have to say that a Nice lady at the Michael’s tipped me off to the savings at Wal-Mart. I was just about to get the Cricut Create Machine when she told me to go to Wal-Mart!! Thanks so much if you ever read this!! I just need to learn how to use this thing know.

This is another Christmas card that I made. I used the Cuttlebug die snowflake cutes and the embossing folder. I also used rub-ons. The idea for this card did come from card magazine but I did change it up and make it a little different. This is what the Magazine card looked like.

Penelope's First Halloween2
Originally uploaded by rebeccalevan81
So I tried my hand in digital Scrapbooking. This project was not to bad and it actually seams cheaper. I probably will not do this for Penelope really Halloween page since I have already got all of the stuff to make her pages. But I did enjoy making the page on the computer because I like making Graphic Designs for my costumer’s registers.
