Christmas Tag

Merry Christmas!
I had such brilliant plans, and as usual, they didn't all come to fruition.
I have a list of holiday craft projects to do.....maybe complete them now and be ready next year?
I wanted to post all of my beautiful Christmas decorations...hasn't happened. Is it too late?
Wanted to make handmade gifts for dear friends....still working on a few. Maybe birthdays?

Well, here are a couple of things I did manage to squeek out at the last minute.
I was inspired to use vintage images after seeing a lovely gift wrapped at French Garden House.
Special thanks to the Graphic Fairy for sharing so many sweet images. I had a hard time decide which ones to use.

I used dotted swiss embossing folder, dictionary flower and a gold embossing sentiment

Simple text and reindeer graphic.
Did you know caribou, or reindeer are good swimmers?

Another Graphic Fairy image with some berry and leaves from my stash.

Graphic Fairy image and a little gold glitter on the candle flames.

GF image and scraps do the trick. I loved that little scarlet birdie.

Finally, a graphic from the interwebz....I can't remember where...and I will check because I want to give credit. Nothing original here!

A few sweet images, scraps and my news Sizzix tag die, I cranked these out at 1 am the other night. Still haven't been to bed before 1 am in the last 4 nights. Perimenopause sucks! Thank heavens for Ambient!



  1. These are lovely! I adore that "Robin's Christmas Eve" image. I was thinking of framing that one for next year's holiday decor. :)

  2. These are adorable!!! I actually ordered a punch to make tags like the shapes you used...I can't wait to use them...Yours are gorgeous!!!

  3. These are all beautiful. Thanks for sharing.

  4. Love your tags, Danell. Also scrolled down and saw the fantastic pillows you made and your son's LaCrosse shirt, too. I was using freezer paper stencils back when I was designing crafts in the early 1990s. Loved that technique. (Waxed paper inside the shirt works well, too.) Anyway, your shirt looks great. May have to try shirt-painting again. I'm sure the paint is much better now than it was then when it was really, really plastic-y and stiff. Happy New Year!

  5. These are super cute...I can see you are very good at crafting. I look forward to stalking some more. Like I said I will keep you posted as to when you will be featured. Thanks so much for your interest.
