Fill 'er up!

Happy Monday! I've busily been getting ready for my two upcoming holiday craft fairs, trying to make sure I have enough inventory. I don't want to be that sad little table in the corner with only a few items. Ha!

As previously mentioned, I love making gift tags, so that is what has been coming out of the craft room recently. These tags use an older Stampin' Up! set called Eventful. This cheeky little phrase just cracks me up! The stocking and sentiment are embossed in white for a crisp look against the red and green card stock.

It's starting to look a lot like Christmas around here!

Stamps: Eventful (SU!)
Paper: Real Red, Wild Wasabi (SU!)
Ink: Versa Mark
Tools: Fillable Frames #9 die (PTI)
Embellishments: white embossing powder, baker's twine

Papertrey October Blog Hop Challenge

Hello! After a bit of a blogging break I am happy to say I am back! To get back in the swing of things I thought I would participate in Papertrey Ink's monthly blog hop. This month's challenge was to create a set of five gift tags.

I love making gift tags, especially this time of year. Dressing up gifts in pretty packaging makes them feel extra special. As a paper crafter it seems almost remiss not to make my own tags! :)

I chose to use one of my favorite PTI sets, Wreath For All Seasons. The wreath and sentiment were stamped on a Tag Sale #2 die cut from Rustic White card stock .

I made a set of eight and strung them with red satin ribbon.

I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone else creates today!

Stamps: Wreath for All Seasons (PTI)
Ink: Garden Green, Riding Hood red (SU!)
Paper: Rustic White (PTI)
Tools: Tag Sale #2
Embellishments: red satin ribbon
