CAS Gift Bag

 I made this little gift bag for the CAS-ual Fridays challenge, and the Crafty Ribbons Challenge.  It will make a sweet little add on for a Christmas gift!  I added a bow and glued on some snowflake embellishments to a mesh bag I bought at the dollar store.   The snowman is a chipboard sticker embellishment that I form cut a magnetic backing for, and voila! A cute little magnet for the fridge during the holidays!  I created the tag using my A Creative Need BELLS AND HOLLY image, which is a new release in my ACN shop this month, and colored it with copics and glitter pens.  The tag is 1 1/4″ round including the gold glitter circle back. The cold has set in, so it is a little easier to start thinking ahead to such things as Christmas and Holiday card making!  Have a great day everyone! Additional CHALLENGES I am entering this in: ABC Christmas Challenge: Under the Tree Party Time Tuesdays: Glitter Deena 

Avec Amour Tags

  Here are a few tags I made using my Eiffel Tower image.  I added one to my husband’s gift on Valentine’s Day; yellow is his favourite color! Avec Amour for those of you who may not know, means With Love. Hope you’re having a creative day!  Deena 

Cherish Blue Bird Tags

I’m making some new tags, and thought these would be lovely for a wedding wish tree or as a gift tag for a bridal shower or wedding gift.  The bird is a Unity Stamp and the sentiment is from Stampin’ Up!   Each tag is tied with 8 inches of baby blue paper cord  from fastrunningfox.  They measure 1 3/4″  x  2 3/4″. Find these and more in my SHOP !

Home For the Holidays Tags

I love making tags!  For these I’ve used the Joys of the Season cricut cartridge to weld a little house to the tag base. Then I simply cut the base, cut another house out of  dp (Pink Paislee Father Christmas), stamped, sponged and added baker’s twine for the tie! The tag is 1.75 inches wide and 3 inches tall.  Here’s a pic of all three… I used Memento rich cocoa ink to sponge the edges and stamp the snowflakes.   The sentiments are stamped in broken china Distress Ranger Distress ink, and rich cocoa. Thanks for stopping by!! Deena

Welcome Home

I was working on tags for my shop with these cute house images when I saw the perfect sketch in Lori Tecler’s gallery! She is the Featured Stamper this week on SCS. I used the same sketch as hers: Weirdos.  I added a layer, changed the stamps, dropped the sentiment tag, added the sentiment to the center stamp and used a checkered ribbon for embellishment. Stamps: Stampin’ Up! Good Neighbors, Warm Words Paper: basic black, whisper white Accessories: ribbon And here are the tags too, available in my ETSY SHOP. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day! Deena

Silver Embossed Tags/Tree Ornaments

I made these silver embossed tags tonight and I was originally thinking they would be pretty paper ornaments, but then realized they would be great as tags too.  So maybe I will use them for both. I embossed the Unity bird, and Flourishes sentiment stamp in silver embossing powder.  I also added a little dazzling diamond glitter to the bird for some extra sparkle, tied a sheer purple ribbon and silver cord to the top with an eyelet setting.  The die cut shape is Nestabilities Labels Four. I’ve entered this in the Simon Says “Merry Christmas” challenge where all they wanted us to do was say “Merry Christmas” in some way. 🙂 My friend Rosana whom I’ve met blogging, has asked if I could share some info with you all. This is an appeal to all CAT LOVERS! Adote um Gatinho (meaning Adopt a Kitten) is a foundation that rescues cats and prepare them for adoption. They have been nominated for a prize and if they receive enough votes by December 28th they will …

Cuttlebug Christmas Tags and Tin

Hello!!  Wow, only 10 days to go ’till Christmas! The Christmas preparations are well under way, most of my cards have been sent out (although I do have a few more to make and send), and I have yet to start my baking!  I am getting into the spirit of the Holidays now, waiting for family to arrive and looking forward to some special time with them. It will be an emotional Christmas for our family this year.  We found out two months ago that my MIL has terminal cancer.  It did come as a complete shock to us all, as nothing was found until she was at stage 4  and nothing can be done medically.  She is 78 years old and has always been a very strong woman both physically and spiritually.  She is a real go getter with more energy than I have by times!!   We had the very difficult task of telling our two boys last night about their Nanny.  Children do surprise us at how they take things.  I find with …

Big Bow Tags

Hello!  If you are like me and about a zillion other crafters, I’ll bet if you look around your craft area right now, you will find lots of  Holiday paper scraps everywhere!  If you are super organized and have already thrown them in the recycle bin, shame on you! *wink*  Get them out!  Making Holiday TAGS is a wonderful way to use up those scraps and clean up your desk at the same time. The tags above were made with scraps I had leftover on my desk, even the decorative edge. I just had to cut the strip in half to fit it.  The great thing is that tags can be any shape or size, so using scraps just makes sense. Work with what you have! I did bring out the striped Stampin’ Up!  ribbon to make these big bows; I certainly would never call that much ribbon “scraps”!  But aside from the ribbon you can see how quickly tags like this can come together just using your scraps. The mini tags are punched from …


Tags are  so fun and quick to make, and this week Crafty Creations is challenging us to make some! I stamped the birds from Butterflies and Birds clear stamp set by Inkadinkado in Broken china ink. The tags are punched from vanilla card stock and the edges are inked with Weathered Wood ink (Tim Holtz distress inks).   They are tied with Basic Grey taffeta ribbon, and I’ve added a tiny crystal on each. This is a large style tag measuring 3.5″ x 2.5″.   The dp is Razzleberry Lemonade (Stampin’ UP! ), and the base is Bermuda bay card stock.  I used the Martha Stewart daisy punch to cut the corners and punched the dragonfly. Have a look at the other DT members beautiful tag creations over at Crafty Creations Challenges!! You won’t be disappointed, they absolutely amaze me with they’re talent!! I hope you’ll be inspired to create a few tags of your own…they are great to have on hand for gifts or to add to a project. Thanks for stopping by and have a …
