     If you just came from the super talented Suzy's Crafts then you are in the right place.If not then you want to start in the beginning Here.
      I am so excited to be showing you my project today as a guest designer. I love decorating for Christmas so I jumped at the chance to join this extremely talented group of crafters. For my project I chose to add a little welcome greeting for our family and friends as they enter our home. My stairs in the entry way need a good paint touch up but we decided to wait til after the holidays so I spruced them up with a little vinyl  art. The original idea I found on Pinterest but decided to add my own twist and put them on the risers for the stairs instead of the wall.
     As you can see I used all different fonts from my various Cricut carts. I realized I hadn't quite sized the "peace" and "Christmas" porportionately enough to keep the shape of the tree but not to worry. I used a flourish from CTMH Art Philosophy and made these @ 2",3"4", 5" and 6" so now it looks like a tree. I also added a piece of brown vinyl for the trunk.
     I hope you have gained some inspiration in my project and give it a try. Now be sure to visit the talented Ashley since she has been showing some fabulous projects.
