Hello crafty friends! I'm super excited to be sharing a couple tags here on my blog today that I created especially for Tracey McNeely's annual 25 Days of Christmas Tags Blog Hop!
I've been a busy bee for weeks creating tons of handmade decorations to adorn a 4 1/5' holiday tree that will be donated to The Festival of Trees annual holiday auction in Pinehurst, NC! I was contacted this past summer and asked to sponsor a tree on behalf of our B&B, The Carriage House, and of course I said 'YES'!
Under the tree I have several kraft boxes tied up with black & white buffalo plaid ribbon and adorned with some handmade, farmhouse tags using goodies from Paper Sweeties! This is also a sneak peek of a brand new holiday sentiment set releasing in our shop on the 15th! I stamped the sentiments using Versamark ink and then embossed with white powder -- LOVE!
Here is a second tag created using another sentiment from this amazing set and a sweet little ornament!
And a third tag created with yet another sentiment and this cozy mitten, die cut from red and white felt!
You can recreate these tags using these items from the Paper Sweeties shop:
Be sure to hop along with these talented designers from our team to be inspired by their amazing holiday tags and projects:

Ten Creative Designers from Paper Sweeties, including myself, are participating in the 25 Days of Christmas Tags annual blog hop today! I was so excited when Tracey invited us to share in the fun again this year ... we wouldn't miss this popular and much anticipated holiday event!
I know time is at a 'premium' at this busy time of the year, so I wanted to create a tag that is super simple and quick to whip up so it could be very easily mass produced!
I die cut the tag base using my favorite die from Fun Stampers Journey and then decorated it with goodies from the Paper Sweeties shop!
The tag literally will take you under 5 minutes to create ... it's all dies and easy peesy -- exactly what we need during the hustle and bustle of the holidays! Here are the products I used from Paper Sweeties to create the tag (and treat bag too!):

Hello crafty friends! I'm super excited to be sharing a little something FUN today created for the 2015 edition of the 25 Days of Christmas Tags! I so appreciate the kind invitation to participate from my stampy friend, Tracey McNeely! This is the 5th anniversary of Tracey's holiday hop and my 2nd year participating - yay!! (Click on photos for larger views)
I started with a yummy hot cocoa set, complete with marshmallows and peppermint candy crunch and I decorated it with some adorable felt mittens and fun paper straws ... in a non-traditional holiday color palette -- hot pink and aqua -- LOVE!
I die cut the mittens twice - once using aqua felt and once using hot pink felt. Next I stuffed a tiny piece of cotton inside the mittens, layered a length of Cotton Candy Baker's Twine between the front and back mitten layers and hot glued around the edges to seal all the pieces together. I added the hot pink felt cuff onto the top of each mitten and then finished them off with die cut white glitter holly leaves and some beautiful satin, pearl and rhinestone blooms!
I tied a couple of Robin Egg and Raspberry Paper Straws onto the top of the hot cocoa treat using some hot pink gingham ribbon -- and to finish this yummy project off, I hot glued two silver jingle bells onto the gingham ribbon!
I used these goodies from the Paper Sweeties boutique:

Hello crafty friends! I'm SO HAPPY you stopped by my blog today -- I have a special post to share with you all! I was invited by my blog friend, Tracey McNeely, to participate in her 25 Days of Christmas Tags Designer's Blog Hop!
And I was inspired by today's 'Snowman' challenge at The Card Concept!
SO MUCH FUN and INSPIRATION -- whooo hoooo!
I LOVE creating goodies for the holidays -- Christmas is my favorite time of the year! I especially love to create gifts for people ... I adore giving handmade from the heart gifts to family and friends!
I created a set of four tags for this event. First off, I'm sharing this sweet little snow fella created using these goodies from the Paper Sweeties boutique: Holly Days, Holly Days Sweet Cuts, Wagon Add-on: Snowballs, Strawberry Baker's Twine, Thanks Snow Much Sweet Cuts, Robin Egg Sequins, Robin Egg Seam Binding and Frosting Seam Binding.
I attached my tag to a handmade box - embellished and decorated to coordinate with the tag!
Aqua, red and white is one of my favorite color palettes to create with -- next to aqua, pink and white & hot pink/lime green!
The next little tag I designed is a bit more shabby -- lots of fun embellishments come together to create this little sweetie! I used these goodies from the Paper Sweeties boutique: Friendship Warms The Heart, Red & White Chenille Candy Canes, Strawberry Baker's Twine, Licorice Seam Binding.
Who wouldn't want to receive a yummy package of chocolate candy stir sticks with a pretty little tag for the holidays? Perfect hostess gift when visiting friends!
And, I saved my favorite for last -- isn't he the sweetest snowman you've ever seen? I used these goodies to create this fun tag: Snow Friends, Snow Friends Sweet Cuts, Strawberry Baker's Twine, Strawberry Seam Binding. The grungy tags are from the Kraft Outlet and the patterned papers are from October Afternoon - Making Merry.
