a nutmeg tree...

i know there hasn't been much scrappiness on this formerly scrapbooking blog lately, but i've been working on lots of samples for the new store and we've been trying to keep them a little secret until we re-opened. well, we are getting steadily closer to the big re-open, so i'm ready to share!

i've been loving the new 6x6 mini decks from cosmo cricket and the nutmeg one is probs my fave so far. from just one paper pad and one set of chip shapes, i've made this adorable buzz & bloom tree, a mini album and 3 cards, and there is still enough for me to make even more!

for this project i sprayed the tree from buzz & bloom with the limited edition pinecone glimmer mist from tattered angels, and then used my 1 1/4" circle to punch all the circles out, distressed the edges with the rich cocoa memento dew drop and ran them through the xyron x to make them into stickers so they could easily adhere to all the circles on the tree. then i arranged the chip sticker leaves and acorn from the chip shapes on the base of the tree and powdered the backs to take care of any exposed stickiness. it was super easy, it turned out pretty cute, if i do say so myself, and now i want to make one for every season!

i can't wait for this guy to be hanging out in the store with the brand new nutmeg collection & all the other cute things from buzz & bloom and all the other companies we have fun new stuff from!
