12 Kits Of Occasions Dec. 2019 - The Tags Of Christmas

Hello friends.  Hard to believe it's the end of the month AND the end of 2019, but here's wishing you all a bright and shiny and Happy New Year!!   Before we completely say goodbye to 2019 though, let's celebrate a bit with the 12 Kits Of Occasions where I am the hostess this month,  and provided all my teamies with a kit full of options for making Christmas tags.  I have looooong been a fan of making tags, and thought this would be a great way to send out a kit that would be quick, easy, fun, and useful for this time of year!  Here's what I included in this month's kit:

   

Doesn't Lindsey do such a wonderful job photographing our kits each month?!  She makes us all look SO professional!  Thanks Lindsey!!

I made 15 tags with my kit, but don't worry, I grouped several in each photo so you wouldn't be here all day!  So sit back and relax, and enjoy what I've created for you, and then hop along to the rest of the team HERE and see what they did with this tag kit.  (You can find a list of all the supplies I used for my kit right HERE.)


I had so much fun just randomly pulling out stamps and dies from my stash to make up this kit, and used mostly Copics to color in my images before adding them to the various tag shapes I also included.  My Llama tag is very sparkly IRL because of all the Wink Of Stella I added to his scarf and saddle, and I added a bow from The Greetery's Fit To Be Tied die to my Nativity tag.  Did a little bit of non traditional colors on the 4th tag with the aqua colored berries, but really like how it turned out!


The 3rd tag in this photo was made from a roll of tissue paper by Tim Holtz that I die cut with the Reverse Confetti Hex Die and then glued to the same white cardstock tag shape.  The surface was not very smooth after gluing, so I lightly ran my Versamark pad over the top and edges, and then added gold embossing powder.  I love the way this tag turned out...very vintage like!


Had to attach this tag to one of my mom's gifts and she loved it!  The JOY die cut is from PTI's Bold Borders: Flurries.


Can you tell I love coloring up all the little critters?!  I also had fun with the 1st tag from SugarPea Designs which is named Santa's Gift Tag...can you tell that I lightly stamped the background of this tag with a sweet Santa image that I had bought from Hobby Lobby back when I first started stamping?  Here's a closer up for you:


And the last of my tags...


Had to include a shaker tag in my kit because, well, they're just too FUN not to include!!  The Lawn Fawn stamp and die sets were originally intended for Easter with jelly beans in the little shaker jars, but why not peppermints for Christmastime?!

I hope I've given you some inspiration for next years Christmas tags...they're easy, fun, and a great way to use up all those little scraps we all have on hand!  Make sure you check out what all the rest of my teammates did with this kit right HERE...I just know they're going to blow you away with all of their creativity too!


Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!

You added special touches to every tag, and I'm so glad you highlighted some of them so I could get a closer look, like with the Santa stamped behind the SugarPea Santa gift tag!
