I've caught up!
Got all 12 done now!
Oooh what it's like to be on holidays!
I've put the whole day away today to work on tags and what I love about challenges like this
is that it makes you do things you normally:
2. do a technique forgotten about
3. do a technique never done before
4. have products never used
5. have products tucked away forgotten completely about!
So its a win all round!

I love the colour of this one, and used some Viva Gold Cabalt smeared with a spatula over a white tag, then painted with a brush the boarder. I've got out dies I've forgotten to use, along with glitter paper - what fun! Loved the layering! Framed the deer with some gauze underneath.
I really enjoyed creating this one! Some hand drawing in black (even the sentiment) and some definition on the tag and ivy leaves. I didn't have a black lamp post which would have been good, but thought to mount both the little Victorian house and the tag itself (always love a black base!). Do you see the little red cardinal? And a little trim on the bottom to really finish off this Victorian scene.
A little bag. I've got most of my sprays packed away at the moment because of renovations (and soon to be Christmas guests) but I did have some Silks paint - a tap of that into a little spray bottle with water ...and it worked a treat - such a lovely shimmer (which the photo doesn't pick up). A little paper bag with a doodle border, stamped little red bells tied with a gold bow and pine needles - all ready for a little gift.
Put some 'Jingle Bells' lyrics on the top and bottom of this tag and focused it more on stars.
Snowflakes are lovely and I do use them... but lol - it is Summer here. Though, I still associate snowflakes with Christmas. Did a wrap-around with some hessian and pleated sheet music, and one little spot of red :)
Black Christmas trees really look lovely, like a silhouette in a scene. They contrast well against the vintage paper doily. The red main part of the tag is mounted onto a music sheet background.
This is a little different to anything I've done before. Other than the little tag pocket, all the Nutcraker characters are stamped on transparency so they do stand alone.
I've just put 'Clara' and the 'Rat King' in the pocket with the pine needle diecuts for the moment.
These characters can be played with singularly or together..
(Please excuse very inky fingers!)
I truly loved playing with this one!
There... done and dusted!
So pleased to have completed the 12 tags!
There's another post over at
And its bumping along fabulously!!
Here's a peek at one of my pages on my latest post...
And who doesn't love a bit of Christmas scrapping!
