Happy Monday, Peeps!!
Hope you had a wonderful weekend . . . mine was okay. I flew to Washington for the holidays on Saturday, and have spent every spare minute smothering my grandson with kisses. He is a delicious little bug.
So, I’m popping in today to share some super quick gift tags that I made before I left AZ. I’ll warn you right now, there are a few pics in this post, so please hang in until the end – it’ll be worth it, I promise!! The first tag was created using the Spellbinders Labels 14. I cut out three labels – two out of coordinating DP, and one out of cardstock for stability. The cutout for the sentiment was created using the Classic Oval Nestabilities. The sentiment is from the Get Merry clear stamp set from Hero Arts. And how stinkin’ cute is that Santa canister?!! I picked him and the snowman up at Home Goods. Do you know Home Goods?!! Well, let me just tell you that it is the most amazing place for sweet little nuggets like these jars – $4.99!! Sa-WEET, right?! I plan to fill the jars with some Russian Tea Mix that I saw in Paula Deen’s Christmas magazine . . . loves me some Paula Deen!
I pretty much did the same thing for the Snowman tag as I did for the Santa tag. How freakin’ cute is that little mitten tag?!! I used the Nested Mittens Shapeabilties, as well as the Classic Oval Nestabilities again. Sentiment, again, is from the Get Merry set. Did I mention that both the Santa tag and the Snowman tag have TO: and FROM: stamped on the back. Those stamps came from the Making Memories set called Noel. Here’s a close up of the Snowman tag for your viewing pleasure.
Finally, I created a tag that’s a little bit more elegant – you know, for like those fancy schmancy holiday parties that ya’ll will be invited to this holiday season. How popular will you be when you show up with a bottle of wine and this yummy tag? Huh?! Popular, I tell ya!! I created this using the 2010 Heirloom Ornaments from Spellbinders (unfortunately, these are now sold out and won’t be restocked as they were limited editions), the Classic Oval Nestabilities, and the sentiment came from the Merry Christmas Trees clear set from Hero Arts (again, currently out of stock – sorry!).

That’s it for me, kids. I’ll be doing a bit of gift wrapping today, as well as attempting to finish up my shopping. Thankfully there’s no snow here, but there’s certainly enough rain to float Noah’s Ark – NO JOKE!! But I can live with that . . . on a short term basis. LOL I’ll be back soon with another crafty share! Toodles!!
