'tis the season

Happy Thanksgiving!  'tis the season to continue to play along with Tracey's tag-a-poolza over for 25 Days of Christmas Tags.  Today's tags were inspired by Tracey's tag on Day 21.  And lucky for me I have a whole yard of the May Arts Gold Metallic Star ribbon, so this tag was super fast.  I added a SRM sticker sentiment, added 2 extra PTI tags for layering and used some velvet ribbon for the top and added to a mini SRM glassine bag.  And since I pulled out my stash of SRM stickers I found my sheet of Hannuhak stickers and made a cute little tag, instead of gold I went for blue.  Thanks Tracey for so much inspiration, my stash of tags has grown.

Joy....  playing along with this month's PTI Blog Hop, nice to take a break from my tag-fest (although I made a tag before this card, so who knows you might see it later).  I used all PTI stamps and dies, a Sizzix embossing folder and some May Arts ribbon.  Hope everyone has a fabulous Thanksgiving eve...   I'm looking forward to welcoming all our return guests at the Outside Inn for their Thanksgiving stay.

Vintage Trailer tag

I was inspired by Ellen's fun tag for Day 22 of Tracey's 25 Days of Christmas Tags.  I used the PTI Petite Scenes vintage trailer, PTI trees, Reverse Confetti tag, My Favorite Things snow dies and some fun May Arts ribbon.  How many of you know that we're building a campground?  Click here for more details.

more holiday tags

I know, I know... you'd think I'd made enough holiday tags by now, but I love being inspired and Tracey has a blog full of holiday tags.  So here are two more!  The top one was inspired by Jen's tag on Day 19 and the bottom was inspired by Kim's tag on Day 21.  Click here for all the details on her fun challenge to play along.

And for those of you who don't follow my work blog, I've been on a food/wine/beer/drinks agenda this week, click here.

more coffee tags

Okay, so yesterday I posted this tag which was inspired by the above tag for Tracey's 25 Days of Christmas Tags, but my little brain wanted to do all of the above, and it didn't work.  So here's the take 2 on the same inspiation.  Thanks to Tracey's "make a shaped tag" I went digging in my stash and found the above Hero Arts coffee stamp that's a bit bigger then some of my other coffee stamps, so it was perfect for a tag.  I tied it to a frosted Reverse Confetti pillow box with some May Arts ribbon and added a WPlus9 sentiment.

And this tag was inspired by Tracey's Day 16.  I used Clear and Simples stamps for the coffee (or tea?) and a PTI sentiment and added some May Arts ribbon.  I have more tags up my sleeve...  be back tomorrow with another one :)

Merry Christmas foxy coffee tag

Can you follow that train of thought?  I am having way too much fun with Tracey's 25 Days of Christmas Tags and Day #14 is a shaped coffee cup with a fox and the new Curtain Call Challenge.....  I used the green for the Lawn Fawn fox's coffee up... and I promise the large take out coffee cup tag is coming next (once I finish it).  For my bag, I used May Arts burlap to cover the branding (love upcylcing things) and then tied the tag with 3 different May Arts ribbon.  The tag die and stamps are all Lawn Fawn.  Okay, I'm not getting enough done today, so I thought posting this project would help me feel more accomplished (b/c I mae it almost 8 hours ago).  Wishing everyone else a more productive afternoon.

Holiday Tags

Okay, I went tag happy....  thanks Tracey for all the inspiration from the 25 Days of Christmas Tags.  The top tag was inspired by Day 15.

Postal inspiration from Day #7, love using a variety of different stamps (Hero Arts background stamp, PTI Postmarks, WPlus9 Postmarked, washi tag, PTI tag, Lawn Fawn sentiment...

Inspired by Day #12, thanks for motivating me to pull out my Top Dog Dies tag (it's larger then most of my other dies).

welcome tag

Happy Monday crafty friends.  I'm playing along with the new PTI Make It Monday, Montif Building, even though (like usual)  really don't have time (hence the tag).  I used quite a few stamps on this tiny one layer tag, fun to grab the little stamps and see what you can do.  It would be a great tag for a welcome basket for my grandmother when she comes to visit us for the holidays.  On that note, back to the regularly schedule Monday fun.

holidays tag and thank you card

I've got another tag for Tracey's 25 Days of Christmas Tags, this time I used her tag from Day #1.

And my second project was inspired by the latest Muse Club Challenge, I used a Hero Arts flower and sentiment and tried to break out of my normal colors....  Hope everyone had a great weekend...
