Trimming the tree, is a tradition in many of our homes and something we certainly look forward to.  Regardless of our decorating styles, we pull out our ornament collections, many with sweet memories attached, and savor unwrapping each one and finding just the perfect place to hang it on the tree.  We're bringing that warm and cozy feel to our hand-crafted projects this year with images and dies that bring a new spin to such a wonderful traditional.  You'll love adding these gorgeous ornaments to all our cards and Christmas projects.

Amy

 Amy says, "Trimming the tree is such a favorite Christmas tradition for young and old alike! My favorite part is sorting through all the collected ornaments and reminiscing over the unique stories they each tell. Today's tree-trimming-themed products are a pleasure to use, whether you're trimming a tree on a card or trimming an actual tree."

All of the ornament products being showcased today are just fabulous – whether you want to make cards or tags, or actual ornaments, we’ve got you covered!  I hope you’ll stop over to check out all of my projects today!"

Melissa

Melissa says, “Trimming the Christmas tree is most definitely the one thing that sets the mood and creates that feeling of Christmas here in my home.  I always look forward to seeking out the perfect tree, rearranging the furniture to create a space for it, and bringing up boxes of lights and decorations.  My mom presented me with my own ornament each year as I was growing up, so I have the most beloved stash of ornaments now, each with a very special meaning.  Now I carry on that same tradition with my own daughter.  The lovely, playful, creative, and inspiring ornament stamps and dies available in this release each brought back memories of my childhood and getting to recreate those ornaments whether with stamps, felt, or paper, has certainly set the mood for a wonderful, crafty, holiday season."
