The last TAG of the year ........

Happy Tuesday ........

It's been a bit touch and go as to whether I would make this blog post today.  My laptop decided that the festive season was just too much ....... it couldn't do anymore, so ...... it switched itself off last Monday afternoon, whilst I was a the checkout stage on two websites might I add, and wouldn't turn back on again!  Nothing at all ..... completely dead!  To make matters worse I hadn't backed anything up for weeks!!! Just what I needed ..... not!!

Anyhow to cut a long story short it was the power cable.  Could have been worse.
So ..... we're back up and running (yeah!) for the moment anyway, and I'm playing catch up with everything! 

It's time for a little reminder about this month's TAGplorations Challenge

The theme is  ..... All About Christmas with the optional twist of ..... Glitter
Who doesn't like a touch of sparkle at this time of year!

Here's a real quick and easy design for you ......

A simple Kraft tag, die cut using the CUTplorations Nesting Dies Tags #1  and then the greeting has also been die cut using the CUTplorations Merry Christmas phrase

The Merry Christmas was die cut from red glitter card and also from the Kraft tag.  The glitter card was then inlaid into the tag.

To finish off I added a touch of white ink around the edges, and sprinkled on some chunky white embossing powder to give a snowy look

I love this stuff on Christmas projects ...... sprinkle the embossing powder onto your tags and cards and then heat gently from underneath so that you don't blow the powder away. Perfect falling snow every time!

As it's Christmas, there's some special prizes for this month's challenge
  • Leave a comment on the December TAGplorations challenge post AND on all the designer's blogs for a chance to win a $15 Gift Certificate to spend in the STAMPlorations store
  • Play along with the challenge and 1 player, randomly drawn from all the entries will win a $20 Gift Certificate
  • and also 1 player randomly drawn from all the entries will win their choice of 1 set of Tag Dies from the store
Happy stamping!

Well, that's it ..... the last tag of the year.  I just need to put it on the last of my Christmas gifts.
All the presents are bought and wrapped, the cupboards are well stocked but ....... I'm still making Christmas cards!!!  The last ones need to be in the post tomorrow ........ it's going to be a long night!

Thanks for popping by .... enjoy the rest of your day and just in case you don't visit again before the big day, have a wonderful Christmas ..... see you for more tags in the New Year!

Cheerio until next time ......


  1. Love the white on the kraft card. The falling snow, chunky white embossing powder, looks so pretty. Love the pop of red bling with the die cut sentiment. Technology, when it works is marvellous x

  2. Fabulous tag, love
