Tag you're it...


Twenty paper tags all in a row...phew it was a long week of detailed cuts.  Sometimes I didn't think I would make it through.  Could I really come up with 20 different ideas from a single paper set?  Hmm...I hope they measure up to Miss Elizabeth's wonderful paper precision.


With specific measurements given I had to come up with something to give these tags strength.  I knew these cards would come in handy.  I always pick them up at estate sales.  These are just the right size for this tag swap.



Glitter, holly, vintage images, tiny jingle bells, scallops and pinked edges.


All papers from and images from Pretty Little Studios.


Dimension from pop dots.


Finished at last...


I scanned in a vintage Christmas card of mine and added my tag line for the back.  I cannot wait to see how these all look when they are strung together with others.  
...I have been sent a new paint crew!  It appears that our home might be returned to normalcy by early next week...  See Santa really does listen!

Oh those are cute! You did a good job. I am so craft-challenged. That is why I do do crafts. I am not creative!(I have 5 older sisters and each one is creative but me. They didn't leave anything for me)

WooHoo on the new paint crew! I am glad the weather is nice for them to finish up. You need to share pictures!!
Have a good night

The tags are all so charming and you are positively prolific with the amount of projects you accomplish!

These turned out beautiful and using the cards was the perfect solution. I wonder if people still make ATCs? I haven't heard anything about them lately. Your tags are inspiring me!
Keeping my fingers crossed you can have the painting done for Thanksgiving -yay!!

These tags are uber-cute! They must have taken ages to fussy-cut and put together. I saw them on the Creative Breathing blog, then I popped over here to check out your blog. I love what I see here, so I'm going to start following you. Thanks for the inspiration!
