Now that I've made all of the formal introductions, let's get onto the projects!

 

Merry & Bright Collection

For my first set of tags I couldn't wait to dig into the Minute to Make collection.  I opted to go with this tag from the second set.  Seriously folks, these are the EASIEST things to stamp, EVER! 

Merry & Bright tag

The striped tag base comes first done in Berry Sorbet.  then the stars and banner string in Aqua Mist and finally the banner itself in Simply Chartreuse.  The "& Bright" addition is done in Charcoal Palette.  I love how these tags look *complete*, yet they are single layer and have plenty of visual interest!  Not to mention it literally took 5 minutes to make three of them!  The hardest part was picking out my colors!

Dot swap

I wanted to show you this little visual as well!  You can swap out the patterned tag base images between stamp sets.  For example, the polka dot base from the first set can be swapped out with the "fillers" from the second set!  That will multiply the number of looks you are able to achieve!

Side

Next is a keepsake tag/ornament made from the new Christmas Tree Change Up products.  I die-cut one section of the box from Ocean Tides felt and trimmed off both ends.  One of them was cut a second time with the stitching holes die.

Paper tag

I added the details on the front with floss and seed beads, adding a daily stitch here and there for something a bit different.  The edges are whipstitched.  I love the shape of this tag die-cut from the collection.  I cut it from white and stamped it with coordinating stamps in Ocean Tides and Aqua Mist.

Felt tag

What a wonderful way to wrap, by including a little something that can be kept and treasured for years to come!

All 3 tags

I love sending little treats for the teachers during the holidays and thought that this year I would use these little mini disposable foil loaf pans to package things up!  I traced the rim and made a template, than created top top "lid" with a layer of Pinefeather cardstock and Pinefeather Bitty Dot paper.

Top

I used the Ribbon Slider tags to embellish the top of each tin.

Tags

The sentiment was stamped in True Black directly onto the tag, then I stamped again on extra white cardstock with Pure Poppy ink pad punched out the center circle with a 5/8" punch.

Evergreen sprigs

The evergreen boughs were die-cut from white cardstock and stamped with the coordinating images from Holiday folk.  I inked the stamps in New Leaf and then dabbed the ends in Pinefeather ink to get an ombre look.

Ribbon wrapped

The ribbon just wraps all the way around the tin and through the tags, easy peasy.

All 3 tags

Not only are these quick to make, but inexpensive too!

Celebrate Gift Card Pocket

I have one last project for you today, a little something to help package up gift cards!

Bag closeup

I die-cut the bag from Rustic White and stamped the sentiment from In the Bag on the front in New Leaf.  The letter "e" is a separate stamp, so I was able to add that in some contrasting colors.  I used the stars from Christmas Cheer around the edge of the bag.

Mitten down

This mittened hand is cut from Hawaiian Shores and stamped with Background Basics: Striped Sweater in Tropical Teal.  I adhered just the top edge of the mitten in place to hold the gold cord handle.

Mitten up

That way the recipient can flip it up to access the gift card inside the bag.

Gift card out

It even looks great without the mitten if you want a more sophisticated look!  Now that you have seen a few of my creations, here are some of the amazing things that the team has created!
