Sentimental Sundays Challenge #24 - Tags

The Sentimental Sundays challenge this week is tags. I don't know why, but I don't like making tags. They are so little but some how they intimidate me. And (don't tell anyone) I don't make my own gift tags. I use store bought ones. *gasp* I know, I know... So when I read the challenge this week it took me a while to decide what to do.






Do you see my tag? It's there. Here is a better look.




What do you think? I really wanted to use this cute Snow Girl image that I won from Paper Cupcakes a while ago. (And it allowed me to get 1 more Christmas card completed!) I kind of like the tag now. Some one can keep it with the card or they can pull it out and use it as a gift tag or a book mark. Multi- purpose - imagine that.

I hope you will join us in the Sentimental Sundays Tag challenge. You can use any products you would like as long as it is new, fits the theme, and has a sentiment. While you are at the Sentimental Sundays blog, you can download the free sentiments provided by Ann Vento of Raindrop Echo Designs. (Check out her new stamps for sale at Whimsy Stamps. Too cute!)

Don't forget there is a DT call going on at Sentimental Sundays. You have until 10-18-10 to enter.

Thank you for stopping by! I hope you enjoy the rest of the week end.

Supplies:

  • Stamps: Snow Girl digital stamp from Paper Cupcakes, Made of Snow from Papertrey Ink
  • Papers & CS: October Afternoon Very Merry Sing the Carols & Fill the Stockings DP, Papertrey chocolate & white CS, Georgia Pacific CS
  • Inks: Close To My Heart chocolate
  • Tools: Big Shot, Spellbinders Nestabilities, Zip Dry Glue, Copic Markers, Cropadile
  • Embellishments: Cotton Ball White Fun Flock, Twinklets Diamond Dust, Sugar & Cream twists yarn, Hug Snug seam binding, misc. lace, pink pearls, eyelet, & narrow white ribbon

I'm with you on the tag thing..when I found out I had to do one as DT on DDCC I panicked. I never seem to have room for a tag on my cards and then what do you DO with them??? Well I have made it my personal project to add a tag as much as posible to my cards until I'm thoroughly comfortable with them! lol
You did a fine job, Cheryl. :-)
Thanks for taking on the challenge at DDCC!

I think it's a fun idea to include a tag on a card. Cute holiday card.

I like to make tags but have no use for them since we don't exchange gifts in our family. If I get in the mood to make a tag, I just make it long so it becomes a bookmark.

Very cute!

Pumpkin Spice - Birthday Wishes

While scrolling through the Pumpkin Spice shop, I noticed the great prices on the Christmas/Winter themed paper pads.    The fun colors and patterns on so many of the pages could be used for just about anything.   So I pulled out the “12 Days of Christmas” paper pad from My Mind’s Eye and set to work trying to make some cards.Since I never have enough birthday cards on hand, I thought that was what I would try first.  I started by punching out butterflies from several of the many patterns in the pad.    From there, I moved them around my card until I had an arrangement that I liked, added some stitching and stickers, and, “Ta Da!”, a birthday card! Since I also need a congratulations card for a friend , I thought I would see what I could make with the same paper pad.   I really love how this card turned out.(In real life, the glitter on the “U” is more similar to the aqua color in the paper.)So what do you think?   You can make some fabulous, non-holiday cards using holiday themed pap…

Catered Crop–Seeing Red

Hello!  I’m back. I’m sorry I have been gone so long.  Things have been so hectic that I haven’t had the chance to spend time in my craft room for months.  I was able to sneak away to my craft room for a while this weekend and hope to make it a regular event.I decided to use the Catered Crop’s Seeing Red recipe swap and take the opportunity to cook up some note cards to give to my mother in-law.  Although I only had time to make 4 cards, it was great to spend time in my craft room again.As always, Linda cooked up a fabulous Pinterest board to help get our creative mojo flowing.   Click on the photo below to go to her Seeing Red inspiration board.Don’t forget to link up your Seeing Red creations at the Catered Crop.Thank you for stopping by!Supplies:Stamps:  Fancy Flourishes & Little Labels from Papertrey Ink Inks:  Close To My Heart Hollyhock & Papertrey Ink Kraft inks Papers:  Papertrey white CS, My Mind’s Eye Miss Caroline Dolled Up 6x6 paper pad, misc. scrap red CS, Starbuc…
