A Merry Christmas Border Pencil Tree!

Welcome to Day One of JustRite's October Release Previews!  

I have a pencil tree treat to share with you!  My husband and I volunteer every Tuesday with an after school program at our church.  This year I have been helping a little girl each week with her homework.  We are not allowed to give "presents" but I always give her a pencil to do her homework.  So, I thought it would be a good idea to have a holiday one ready for her around Christmas!  This is such a super simple project!  The stamped die cut tree trim holds the pencil in place!    

Classic Sentiments Edges One is a JustRite Clear Set featuring four crazy wonderful borders!  I so love the sentiment message that each border conveys!  Thank you Amy Tedder Designs, this is brilliant!  And it coordinates with Spellbinders E8-007 Classic Edges Dies.  So easy when it all coordinates! 

My border is stamped and trimmed using the Spellbinders coordinating edge die.  All designer paper comes from Webster's Pages  Girl Land Collection Kit.  I did add the silver metallic string, 1/2"green wrinkle ribbon, along with a tiny bit of Copic coloring!  The trim on the bottom of the die cut scallops is from Webster's Pages Girl Land Designer Trim Card and is attached with Scor Tape. The adhesive letters and the tree topper rose are in the Collection Kit as well!  This Girl Land design is Awesome, yes, with a capital A!  And simple, but makes WOW pencil presentation!  Thanks for stopping by, see you tomorrow with a creation for Day Two!
