Christmas Gift tags

_9197818 xmas tags (Medium)

I have been busy making tags for my Christmas Parcels this year.  These little cuties came from the Bundled Buddies Stamp Set.  I colored them with our Alcohol Markers and a few Copic Markers for the browns since our CTMH browns are still on backorder.

It has patterns for 16 two page layouts, 2 one page layouts and 12 cards. Each pattern has layout instructions as to paper placement and cutting guides.

It is looking a bit more like Christmas

_8147321 christmas joy 2011 (Small)

Wow, The weather here today is really wild.  We are in the middle of a good old blizzard with forecasts of more than a foot of snow with wind.  So, with it looking a bit more like Christmas, I thought I would post my Christmas layout today.

Don’t you just love the new Pear and partridge Paper? I love the traditional Christmas colors with a bit of brown. And With the instructions included in the Workshops on the Go kits, it makes for an afternoon (or evening) of creative bliss. This kit teaches a few tricks that you may not have thought of before, like mixing 1st and 2nd generation stamping in one cluster, Layering rub on images with stamped images and even layering rub ons on top of each other. There are more little tricks too but I will leave that for you to discover when you put your own kit together. You can buy your Pear and partridge Workshop on the Go Here

Using Black Tulle

_8297354 little girl skipping (Medium)

This layout using 3 of my favorite colors…Black, Orange and Green. You just cannot get any better than that…LOL. I used our new Black Tulle Ribbon on this layout. I had never worked with this kind of stuff before but I was so surprised at how easy it is to use and how beautiful it looks. It is 3 inches wide and you get 10 yards on the roll! Yes 10 yards! All for only $7.95. If you think that is too much you can split a roll with a friend.

One of the things I did on this layout was to cut a piece and gather it in the middle then attach a button around it with bakers twine. Does that not look pretty or what? I also placed two Autumn Terracotta brads in the button holes just to add a bit of something unexpected. For my journaling I used a black Journaling Décor Spots. It is a cute little tag inside a pocket. They are sold on page 129 of the Fall/Winter Catalog and you get 2 each of 6 different colors for only $5.95. Just Another hidden gem throughout the pages of our catalog.
