Coming to the end of my 2018 Camp projects!  Today’s is a super cute little 3D tree that comes together very quickly.

You can watch the video to see for yourself just how easy it is!

It continues on from my “Inspired By” series of projects for this particular camp.  While I nearly always design all of my projects – the sheer craziness of my schedule the last several weeks left me at the last camp of the year with such little time after the Thanksgiving Holiday to come up with camp.  So – I chose to go with some of the super beautiful things that have caught my eye from the (nearly over) 2018 Holiday Catalog and adapt those.  You can see the original project above.  It is by Shelli Gardner, the founder of Stampin’ Up! (click on the image to go to her website!)

I switched the colors (you can see I wanted them to match my Icelandic gnomes!) and changed the base/trunk to work with supplies I had hoarded in my studio…..

The biggest challenge was not having a clue how she made it.

I do know that at class and camp events – glue guns cause injury and green glue (while fabulous!) takes time to dry and can be so messy.  Watch the video to see how super simple it is to do a glue free tree!

You can see here where I have added my Whimsy Trees to our growing display of Gnomes and Elves.  The ones we got in Iceland I have left the price tags on….I would hope that we will remember….but let’s face it – who gets their Christmas ornaments out each year and sometimes thinks…..Hmmmmm….where did I get THAT?!

Since I took the pictures we have added 3 more to the shelves, but the pictures we taken.

I love that the shelves contain a mix of old, new and things from over the place!  The little wooden nativity we purchased when we were in Slovenia.

The little Barn/Stable is from Williamsburg, Virginia.

The tree on the bottom is what started my wood collection and was sent to me by a friend in Australia.  Nicki sent the best gifts every year – all the more treasured as she celebrates Christmas in heaven now.

And of course I have my little Rae Dunn canister – it makes the perfect place to stash all of the small bits when we pack them away the rest of the year.  The flat village, trees, and animals are from Crate and Barrel – they come apart – so the animals all pack up nicely and go back in there.

As you can see – the Sprig punch can be used for much more than cards!  There are some super motivated projects on Pinterest – those girls must have punch forever on their projects – some true works of art!  If you have the punch – head over to check those out!

A reminder that the Holiday 2018 Catalog will be ending soon!  The sprig punch, papers, ribbons used on this project are part of that catalog.  We should get the list of what will not carry over past Dec 30 on Dec 5th.  So make sure to check back here later this week.

I will have lots of giveaways, drawings, prizes – etc coming up with my Twelve Days of Christmas – and will include my December Host code then.
