Blog Hop at Doodle Pantry and 12 Days of Christmas!!


Welcome!!! Today is the first day of our blog hop at Doodle Pantry to showcase our new set just released on the 1st of November "12 Days of Christmas". Our team will be showing you ways to use this versatile set! The color version is on sale for only $4.50, what a bargain! You receive not only the color versions of all of the images but the outlines as well, along with digital papers. You may also purchase only the outlines for $3.50 if you so desire. With any purchase, the new set "Cute Quail" is free!
I created a set of tags, selfishly for myself to use on my gifts this year and in doing so made them with a rustic, distressed look.


I used the same design on each to make it a fairly quick project. I centered my image inside of the appropriate circle sentiment and was able to print 6 per page, these I cut out with my Spellbinders circle die. After coloring with Tim Holtz distress inks, they were layered  on large tags that I made by cutting card stock to the same size and using my SU tag punch on the corners and tags cut with the largest Spellbinder tag die. These were all distressed with those same inks. I added a to from sentiment on the back of each and a For you sentiment on the front punched with my 1" circle punch.




You should have arrived here from Feline Creative, Karen's blog and be on you way to visit Warm Harted, Elizabeth's blog but if for some reason you are off track, be sure and hop on over to Doodle Pantry to follow along. You don't have to comment on our blogs but you never know when there might be a surprise! and be sure to follow the directions at DP to be in the running for several gift certificates being given away!! Thanks for stopping by, now be sure and give some love to Elizabeth!
