25 Days of Christmas Tags

Hello friends, 

We are getting closer to the holidays and things are definitely taking a festive turn around here.  The kids have written their Christmas wish lists and my favorite radio station made the switch to all holiday music!    


Tracey McNealy's 25 Days of Christmas Tags is a fabulous way to jump start my holiday crafting and I have a pair of fun shaker tags to share today featuring products from Avery Elle.


I stamped the sentiment and a few snowflakes onto the back panel of the shaker tags before filling with clear sequins and assembling them.  I stamped and colored the Snowmen images with Copic Markers and tied a bit of Midnight Hemp Twine at the top of each tag to finish them off. 



I think these tags turned out pretty cute and I can't wait to attach them to some special gifts this holiday season.

Modern Calligraphy Place Cards {Avery Elle}

Hello crafty friends!  

I am up on the Avery Elle blog this week with a simple project to share with you today featuring the Modern Calligraphy stamp set.  I love to add a little handmade touch to my celebrations- whatever the occasion! Last weekend was the semi-annual creative retreat with my crafty friends, so I crafted some place cards to decorate our tables. 


First, I used the Large Pierced Scallop Rectangles to die cut the paper. Next, I stamped each letter of my friends' names with black ink.  It may look tricky, but the letters flow together wonderfully.  I was really pleased with the look- just like hand-lettered calligraphy! If your placement is off just a bit, you can use a black pigment ink pen to connect the letters. 


I stamped and die cut the flower, coloring it in with Copic markers before adhering it to the place card with foam tape. I punched a small hole in each place card and tied it to the burlap leaf with some twine.  I found the burlap leaves at my local Hobby Lobby.


I've included a list of the Avery Elle supplies that I used to create these place cards below.  

Supplies:


I hope you'll consider adding a little handmade touch to your next celebration or event!
