Five Christmas Tags

I'm hosting a Christmas tag swap at the Collage Stuff Yahoo Group.  I decided to finish my tags last night.  They are just about finished.  I have to finish the back of two of the tags and add the ribbon trim..  These tags are about 4" x 8".  They are in stock at Collage Stuff.  The background papers are from the Basic Grey Aspen Frost 6x6 paper pack.  I love the 6x6 paper packs because the papers are already coordinated.  The Santa images are Victorian scraps that are available at Collage Stuff.  I just created a new Christmas collage sheet, "Christmas Past", and used images from this collage sheet on some of the tags.  The German scrap items used include the Merry Christmas Script, Red Medals, Red Renaissance Border and Tiny Red Border - all available at Collage Stuff.  The other images are from Tumble Fish Studios at the Deviant Scrap website.   I really like the Tim Holtz Mirror Stars, also available at Collage Stuff.  On some of the Santa images, I used Distress Picket Fence Stickles.  On some of the bells I used Mustard Seed Distress Stickles.  I had a lot of fun making these tags!  Which one is your favorite?  Thanks for stopping by!

Another Calendar Page

Here's another one of my calendar pages for the Handmade Calendar Swap I'm hosting at the Collage Stuff Yahoo Group.  The images are from Rucola Studio at the Deviant Scrap website.  The bird charm and German scrap are from Collage Stuff.  This one has the calendar on a little tag.  Thanks for stopping by!

Handmade Calendar Page

I'm hosting a handmade calendar swap at the Collage Stuff Yahoo Group.  This is one of my pages for April.  The images are from Crow About Studio B at the Deviant Scraps website.  I used The Crafter's Workshop Half-Tone Border Template to make the little dots.  I used Stabilio pencils to outline the images.  I  used a Ranger Opaque White Pen to make the white dots.  I sealed the page with a Krylon spray so the pencil outlines would stay where they are.  Each calendar page has to have the monthly calendar on the page.  I printed the calendar on my background paper incorporating the calendar as a background element.  Thanks for stopping by!
