12 Tags of Christmas

Hello Friends!

I have not posted on here since February and I'm sad. In July I attended the Stampin' Up Convention and had a blast (even though I had my 6 month old with me). I vowed at that time to blog more and post my projects and I've been terrible at it! :-(
Part of the reason for this is because Sophia was a little colicky from about 3 weeks old. Yes this is a real thing. Maybe it was her tummy (it was always grumbling and she would have gas - even when I cut out the milk!), but from about 6-9 on and off every night she would be SO sad. She would cry and fuss and be overtired until she would fall asleep from exhaustion. Poor girl. This went on until she was about 4 months old. A friend of ours gave us Colic Calm and it worked VERY well, too bad he didn't give it to us sooner! It was pretty miserable. But we survived! She's doing great. She's crawling everywhere and pulling herself up on everything tall to stand. She loved to eat and put everything in her mouth! She says mamamama, da da, and coos a lot. She is completely cute. I love her and her little giggle is so contagious! I would have a few more girls if I had more energy and was about 10 years younger! hahaha Seriously, I am almost 39 years old and I'm getting tired! (My 2-1/2 year old wears me out too!!!)



But I am now focused on 1 thing. My Stampin Up business! I'm a stay at home mom so in addition to my 2 littles, I have time to put a little into my business and share what I love with others!
So, this month and for December I'll be sharing some Christmas projects, cards and tags. I LOVE the Thanksgiving through Christmas holiday season! I love decorating, candles, fire places, hot cocoa, Christmas movies, crafting, and wearing scarves and boots! It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year! :-)
So that being said....Here are a couple of tags (inspired by projects on Pinterest, with my own twist). I will be sharing more tags as I create them and I'll post them here. I will be having workshops making 6 Christmas tags to anyone that wants to have one! I charge $5 for each person but the class is FREE with any order! Hostesses can also have the option to just make 1 Christmas card per person. (no charge)
This one is made with Lovely As A Tree #127793 and gold embossed #109129. I used Whisper White Craft ink #101731 for the sentiment from More Merry Messages #126402 and the sequins from the Gold Sequin Trim #132983. I also sponged some of the white on the trees and ground, then used the 2-Way Glue #100425 and sprinkled it with Dazzling Diamonds #133751. I think I will use the glitter glue Dazzling Details #124117 next time though. All these products can be purchased at: http://www.stampinup.com/home/en-US/ (use me for your Demonstrator!)


Here is the other tag, which is for a wine bottle (or any kind of soap/lotion bottle). Great for a gift for Christmas (or any time!) I used the Ornament Keepsakes set #128051 and the matching framelits Holiday Ornaments #127816. The sentiment is from More Merry Messages #126402. I cut this tag at 3" x 6-1/2" and scored at 2", then rounded the corners for the top of the tag. For the circle for the hole I used a 1-1/4" punch. 



Stay tuned for more Holiday/Christmas tags! Thank you for visiting my blog! PS - Show some love by leaving me a comment! :-) xoxo
