Cut it Up Arbor Day

CIU challenge blogIn honor of Arbor Day, which is April 26th, we at Cut it Up Challenges are challenging you to use a tree on your project!!

There were so many to choose from, but I’d been wanting to use these beautiful files from Lettering Delights for some time now.  Isn’t that Cherry blossom tree gorgeous?

The collection is called Kyoto Kuties.


Here are closeups of the little Kyoto Kutie and the hummingbird:



P1060005webI have to say I love trees!!  We used to have this huge mulberry tree in our back yard that my sister and I and several neighbors spent countless hours in.  We’d bring up our dolls and our radios and play, hang upside down . . .  So much fun!

I even remember a few Arbor Day songs (or parts of them) that we must have learned in grammar school music class, and of course planting trees on Arbor Day.  Have you ever celebrated it?

The Cut it Up design team has come up with some awesome projects, and I know you will too!  I hope to see yours linked up over there.  Here is the prize that one lucky crafter will win:

About Evelyn

I created this little blog so that I could have a place to show different crafts that I make for my family, my friends, my students, and myself! I have always enjoyed crafting. I particularly love paper, and that's what I'm currently working with.
