Well was that fun or what? I just spent the morning creating nine new tags to celebrate this Christmas season.
I am on a mission to use up as much of my bits and pieces of scrips and scraps that I have been hoarding for the last several years and thought making tags would let me use some of the itty bitty pieces I couldn't use on layout.
I started with a base of the Julie Nutting for Prima paper tags. They have a wonderul vintage feel to them and I love the size. I sprayed each one with different combinations of my Lindys Stamp Gang sprays in tones of creme brulee, golds and other metallics.
While I was in a bling it up type frame of mind, I tore into my flower stash, found several I thought might work for the holidays, and sprayed some of them and added glitter and gilding to the rest.
Then it was just a matter of gluing on all the little treasure pieces I had laid out in front of me. And while it should have been oh so easy, I found I spent hours laying each one out and agonizing over the placement of each piece.
Even deciding on the ribbons to use was such fun. And made me feel so justified in having spent a small fortune over time building up this hoard of scrappy happy supplies.
The happiness of making these little charmers was even made all the merrier when I realized I had actually made a small dent in the holiday stash and might now have a little room to put away some of the new things I got delivered today.
Sigh..... Oh well, back to stash busting for me!
I am wishing each of you a very Merry Christmas and happiest of New Years. Now I am off to make some 12 x 12 layouts.
Here's the video of these cuties:
