Christmas Wishes Candy Pocket Tags

 Hello everyone, and Happy Friday to you all! Today I wanted to share 5 of 14 tags I created using the BEAUTIFUL Cheery Lynn Designs Dies. I had a blast making these, and created them to bring to our Doll Club Christmas Party, and everyone LOVED them!!! :)
 Of course I had to use the Beautiful Christmas Poinsettia Strip die from Cheery Lynn to create my Gorgeous flowers. They were cut using a striped metallic and regular dp print. I also did my favorite Glass Flower technique on these, as it makes them sturdy and beautiful :)  I love using the wreath strip die, as it cuts the perfect amount for each pocket tag, and that was 7.
 Cheery Lynn Designs Dies Used:
Cheery Lynn wreath strip 7 piece die set B216
Cheery Lynn Poinsettia strip B324
Cheery Lynn Christmas Bell 7 Piece B846
Cheery Lynn Pierced Stacker 3 XL21
Cheery Lynn Mirror CABD-74
Cheery Lynn Designs Oval Classic SM silver Stacker Layers 8

Really Reasonable Ribbon Embellishments & Shimmer Satin Ribbon used!

 To create my tags I started with Cheery Lynn's Pierced Stacker 3 XL21 using the largest die in this set for the main tag and dp. If you are creating 5 tags you would need to cut 8 greens to give you 5 entire ones, and then cut the others in half to create the pocket, leaving 1 half leftover. Dp pieces were cut using the same die. be sure to add your design paper before adding your pocket.

Next I cut my tag, oval , poinsettia's , holly, and wreath branches and had them all prepped and ready to decorated my pocket. you can also use ric rac, or trip or whatever to border the pocket , and then ribbon to embellish with a bow. I did add some half backed pearls to my flowers too. For these 5 Pocket tags I did add some vintage ric rac to the pocket. On the Oval Classic it was cut in white, stamped sentiment in black, and then added some red dots around the edges.

I really had a lot of fun decorating these up, and adding some fun Christmas candy to each one. The pockets were easy and came together quickly. Love using Cheery Lynn dies as they make for some beautiful crafts!!! 

 I hope you enjoyed my post for today, as I truly enjoyed sharing! Thank you so much for looking!!!

A Hug for Rudolph /Candy Pocket Tag

 Hello everyone and Happy Wednesday to all!
Today I have a Candy Tag I made using I Brake For stamps darling " A Hug For Rudolph" Stamp. I absolutely LOVE making these tags, as they are super fun and easy to create! Perfect for giving as a little gift to a neighbor,  party favor, or for your co-workers.
My image was stamped up in black ink, and then cut out using the oval shape die. Next I airbrushed the background using copic marker. For Rudolph and the sweet little girl I colored them with copics and then used some stickles to give some glitz. I also added stickles to the snowflakes, as you can see they haven't dried yet :) hehehehe

My tag was created using several Cheery Lynn dies, and then added candy to the inside pocket. I made a bunch of candy tags to bring with me to our Christmas Doll club party that is tomorrow :) They are a little different .

The glitzy trim along the pocket is from my stash and is super OLD! Now the ribbon for the tag and bow  is called Chevron  Striped Twill Red and is from Really Reasonable Ribbon, and is one of my many favorites.

Hello everyone, and Happy Friday to all! Today's card was designed for Really Reasonable Ribbons Winter/Holiday Challenge, and for The Project Bin Stamps. Currently I have been super busy trying to get my house decorated for Christmas, this in itself takes me days to do....hehehehe Also I have been trying to get several sewing projects done as well. CRAZY!!! hehehehe

So for my card base I chose white, and all layers white with designs from Recollections "Jingle Bell" paper stack. Love all the designs in this assortment.
My sentiment is The Project Bins "Maybe Christmas" Stamp set. I did use the Mini Misti to stamp up my sentiment. Love how you can color in all the wording and images several times with this tool. FUN!!!!
All dies are from Cheery Lynn Designs! Of course I had to use my FAVORITE flower die, its the poinsettia one :) LOVE this!!!
Embellished with Really Reasonable Ribbon's Chevron print, and the sweet little 10mm Mix Color Resin Flower w/Rhinestones, these are so CUTE!!! I LOVE all the new embellishments from Really Reasonable Ribbon. I also used a big flat backed pearl, its the largest one from RRR.
Sewing is all done in a white thread.
Hope you will join us for this super fun challenge, and its the perfect time to get some more of your Christmas cards done for this year.

Thank you for looking!!

A Christmas Kiss

 Hello everyone, and Happy Thursday!!
Today I have another Tag I created for gifts this year. On this tag I used I Brake For Stamps "A Christmas Kiss" stamp, and colored it with copic markers. I figured why not make my own. So I have been busy creating for at least 1 gift per person. I think these will be darling on the packages :) These tags are pretty big, most measure about 4 3/4" x 5" I think this one is 4 3/4" x 4 3/4".
 I love this sweet image, I thought it was too cute! I did enjoy coloring it up and then added some stickles for the glitz on this one. I Brake for Stamps has soooo many darling Christmas stamps, it makes me want them all....hehehehehe

I used all Cheery Lynn die cuts for cutting out my layers, and then added a sticker for the Merry Christmas, but I did punch it out with SU! punches. The Poinsettia is cheery lynn, and the little gems are studio calico. I added some  Really Reasonable Ribbons and then some glitter. Super fun and easy to make tags. So far I think I have made 6 different big tags :) and I still have more to make :)
Thank you so much for looking and have a lovely day!!
Hugs to all,

For my Layout today, I used the Club Scrap November Paradise kit. Love the bright cheerful colors in this set, reminds me of summer, and currently im in snow.....hehehehehee Normally I am not thinking of summer right now, as im still adjusting to the cold here in Utah, but have to say I enjoyed a little change for right now.

1-12 x 12 cut down to 11 3/4" x 11 3/4" design paper (then sew together)
2 photo mattes
washi tape

I put the photo mattes on my layout, and the border to see how i wanted them placed. Next I cut out flowers using Cheery Lynn flower dies, and foliage. Set them how i wanted
Photo Mattes- I added some of the Washi Tape that came in this collection to each side of the photo mattes.
Flowers i cut using some of the card stock in green design , orange design, pink, and blue card stock sheets from Paradise kit. I didn't do any distressing, just glued the flowers together and set them back where I had them on my layout. After drying I added some RRR Pearls to the centers.
Butterflies - these are old and from my stash

Cheery Lynn Christmas Tags

Hello everyone and Happy Monday to all! Today I have a couple of tags to share with you. I have been busy trying to create tags to put on our gifts this year, and Cheery Lynn Dies work Perfectly for this :) I LOVE the BIG dies I used here, and the beautiful shape. I will be writing on the back of these To: and From: , I could have stamped that, but hey I will just write :) hehehehe

Tags measures -5" x 3 3/4"

I LOVE using this Cheery Lynn Poinsettia Strip to create the Poinsettia's on both tags. This strip makes cutting super easy, as the strip has enough to create 3 flowers in one single run through your die cut machine, gotta LOVE that! On these I did used a gingham print dp and my Glass flower technique. Love how the flowers turn out and how they stay so perfect. In the centers I used some gems.

Now on this tag I used the Poinsettia die cutting out a different pattern paper almost makes them look like candy cane :) hehehehe
Cheery Lynn Dies Used:
Tag base was cut using Cheery Lynn Designs Pierced Stacker #2 XL-20 die
Also used Cheery Lynn's Oval Classic SM Silver Stacker Layers 8 for the ovals on my tags
Cheery Lynn Christmas Bell B846 die for the Holly Leaves and branches
Cheery Lynn Quadrafoil Tag B682
Ribbons are from Really Reasonable Ribbon. I also used the Cabochon from RRR and all Foam tabs.

I am actually going to use these for all the large quilts I am making for Christmas gifts this year. Ha! I just learned how to quilt, and I am on my 4th one.  I think these would be perfect for large gifts :) but I will be writing a little note on the back and tie it to the quilt on the inside of the package . Might have to make some smaller ones for the top of the gift :) or some that are this size, not sure yet :) we shall see!

I hope you enjoyed my post for today, please do leave a comment letting me know what you think of my tags :)
Have a lovely day!
