Hi everyone...I'm back with another Papertrey Ink group post....this one speaks right to my heart, as it is all about tags...and I love tags...they're kind of like icing on the cake or a cherry on top. So much fun to dress up or dress down and just be completely creative with.
Our challenge as a design team was to use the new 2010 Holiday Tags stamp set to create some quick and easy tags to help inspire you to create some of your own.
I chose to use Papertrey Ink's Vintage Cream Gift Enclosure envelopes as my tag base. These particular envelopes have been died in tea, so they look a bit weathered and aged.
The stamp set comes with so many sweet and unique images....perfect for many different styles. The sweet Santa sleigh was stamped in black to create a silhouette look...I am loving the Kraft, cream, dark red, and black color combo.
Each envelope/tag was embellished with fabric, trim, stamps, and the Limitless Labels dies....can't live without these either. I then created tags to slip inside with a handwritten message...
These inside tags were created using the new Fillable Frames #9 stamp set and die...and another image from the 2010 Holiday Tags set. The glass glitter stars are from Memrie Mare's etsy shop.
Everything is bundled up together with Papertrey Ink Pure Poppy Baker's Twine, ready to attach to your sweet, holiday package.
Here are oodles of creative links for you to check out and be filled with holiday inspiration:
Betsy Veldman, Dawn McVey, Debbie Olson, Heather Nichols, Lisa Johnson, Mish Wooderson, Niki Estes, Kim Hughes, Maile Belles, Erin Lincoln, and Nichole Heady.
Next up...something I just have to share with you...
I ran across the CUTEST Halloween craft the other day and couldn't wait to link you all....I hope to find a few extra minutes to make these with my little one...
These little Oreo mummy pops were made by the girls from one of my very most crafty sites called How Does She? I have never seen anything so adorable....I'm gathering supplies to make these today. You can find instructions and even free printables for the packaging on their site...have fun!
Lastly....a couple of Christmas-y creations for the Frost it Pink blog...
These cards were made using delicious Bo Bunny Press papers, Melissa Frances embellishments, and other extras. I've got all of the supplies listed below so you can make your own:

Let me know if you have any questions...I am happy to help. The Melissa Frances applique was coated with the Coffee Shop Glimmer Mist to age it a bit....I love how it magically transforms things. Also, the vintage image was embellished with Mica Flakes around the edges to create a frosty, wintry feel.
I hope to be back tomorrow with my PTI releases....but with packing for an out of town family wedding, decorating for the reception and company coming I may not make it back....I hope to have a few minutes to share them though.
Have a wonderful rest of the week and thanks so much for visiting.
P.S. To answer a question about what color of Copic I used in the previous post, it is YG91 Putty---my very most favorite :)
