Hi everyone! I am here today with another of my Creative Crew Challenge projects. The Creative Crew Gallery is so inspirational this month. You’ll be amazed by the variety of projects! Staying within my chosen colors of Early Espresso, Cherry Cobbler and a neutral, the challenge is to create a home decor item (keyword: CCREW1211HF, CreativeCrew).
The amazing and talented Connie Babbert from Inkspired Treasures created a card for one of the Freshly Made Sketches challenges that had a cool Christmas tree on it. Immediately I knew I wanted to turn it into a tag. I contacted her to make sure it was okay to CASE (Copy and Share Everything) for a class. Not only did she say yes, she had a brilliant suggestion. Her card used real buttons but for a tag class (5 tags of each design) that isn’t practical. She said to use the Buttons #5 Die. Problem solved!! Stampin’ Up demonstrators are really some of the most generous people I know! I adjusted the measurements a little from hers. My largest triangle is a 1 3/4″ square cut on the diagonal and then a 1 1/2″, 1 1/4″ and 1 ” square cut the same way. The sentiment is pulled from the Season of Joy word stamp and the tree trunk is Early Espresso Quilted Satin Ribbon.
Now just look at my little bag on my entry way table. Isn’t it great?? I stamped the tissue paper with the snowflake from Bright Hopes to make it coordinate with the colors of the tag. I also found some wrapping paper that matches this tag for my presents so cross another thing off of the Christmas to-do list!
I hope you enjoy this little tag idea as much as my class did! Thanks again to Connie for the idea! I’ll be back tomorrow with the latest Freshly Made Sketches Challenge. This week is my turn on creating the sketch! Thanks for stopping in today. Hope your week is great!
