A Tag for Christmas

Just a quick peek at one of the tags I made today in my mad rush to
get all my gifts wrapped and tagged....
I started with a beautiful ornament stamp from
Heartfelt Creations and embossed it with
Silver Lightning EP from Sparkle N Sprinkle.
I stamped the poinsettia part again twice and
colored it with copics and highlighted it
with microfine glitter.  The pointsettia
was layered 3 times with dimensionals.
Although it appears to have a rainbow look, it's really
silver mirror cardstock that's been embossed
using a Darice embossing folder. 
I also used Spellbinder's 2013 Christmas Snowflake Pendants
dies for the red and silver snowflakes.
Here's another rainbow view LOL...
The close-ups look more like the real thing
in all it's silvery glory.

Hope you enjoyed it...
Merry Christmas

Bag, You're It!

Found a great tutorial on You-Tube, but now I can't find it again to give you the link :(
Oh well, there are many great tutorials out there and they're very easy to do.
Start with your basic brown lunch bag and go from there. 
One very helpful tip from the tutorial was to fold the lunch bag in half, the long way - making a skinny rectangle - then use your crop-a-dile to make a hole in the center of the flap end - this way you have a perfect template for your other bags!!!
I made this bag a couple of months ago as a quickie example for a club project, but have just finally taken some photos.  I used only 3 bags for this one, but you can use as many as you want.
I used miscellaneous papers and stickers that I've had around for eons... and some bling from ZVA Creative.

Here's the cover - I decided to go with a "recipe book" theme.

So - lots of blanks for recipes to be hand written.

I used grommets and rings for the binding and some
ready made recipe cards too.



Hope you enjoyed it!
