25 Days of Christmas Tags '13 - Day 15



Welcome back to Day 15 of 25 Tags for Christmas.


Today my guest is Stacey Schafer of Stacey's Stamping Stage!  I am sure you know Stacey, her beautiful patterned paper and layered designs are everywhere. I am on Stacey's Design Team at the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge where I am so lucky to have gotten to know her better. I am always in awe of her cards and how she can combine her elements perfectly. Check out the tag she designed for us today and be sure to stop in over at her blog to have a look around and leave her some love for her awesome tag.




Today for my tag I used a play on die cuts for my sentiment. 
Can you guess what it is?

Three days ago I woke to this:

Milder temperatures on Sunday made it easier for my husband to get the Christmas lights up, while I stayed inside and made a new bow for the outdoor wreath. Most of the snow has melted now, but there is more in the forecast.

totally fabulous tags and LOVE your house.. so cute..

Cathy Weber said...

...holly jolly! Cute idea, cute tag, but what I loved seeing were all the pics of your beautiful house all decked out for Christmas. No flip flops for you with all that snow! What a great husband you have, mine was griping all weekend about putting up the lights and it was good weather, so we would never have any up if there was snow involved!

Loly Borda-Towery said...

Love your pictures! We rarely have snow in Alabama. Love the tags too, did you use one by Lil' I.D? Thanks for sharing!

Denise Bryant said...

Beautiful tags!
How fun to wake up to snow! We get a dusting here a couple of times each winter, but it always melts off in just a day or two. So pretty though!

Marisa said...

Darling tag - love those stitched holly leaves. Lovely lights on your house too. I have learned to put my lights up mid-November on a nice day so I don't have to deal with yucky weather (done that a few too many times!). Then just have to flip the switch on December 1st and enjoy them :)

Barbara Murphy said...

Beautiful tags! I love how you can switch so easily from a more layered style to CAS in a heartbeat! Your decor is so pretty too...I love lit wreaths like this one :)

Katie Ann Brooks said...

sorry I've been a stranger, but here to tell you I LOVE this tag sooooo much! Your house looks lovely too!
Hugs!

Janis said...

Is it Day 15, already??????? Doesn't seem possible! Wow....lovely home and gorgeous wreath!!! Pretty snow. I do love snow in the winter....after it melts off the roads!

Love Stacey's wispy and airy tag. So pretty. Is your play on words "Holly" and "Jolly" Christmas? :) Very bright and fresh tag!!

I am a follower of yours by Google Friend. Yippee!!!

Both your and Stacey's tags are just perfect. It took me a moment, but I did figure out the word play from your tag. I recognize the paper, too. Fantastic photos--it's so nice to see where you are when we are chatting away.

Lisa said...

Stacey's tag is layered with festive fun!! And your jolly tag is amazing!! Love the stitched holly leaves with your sequin berries and your pretty dp. Your snowfall is pretty and your house looks fabulous! Our snow has melted away, just a little pile here or there. Max is thoroughly disappointed LOL!!! But we're back down to 28 this coming weekend brrr!!!

mypapercraftworld said...

Wow, your home's beautiful, Tracey ... the lights and wreath look so fabulously festive! Love both your tag and Stacey's! Anita :)

Jeanne J said...

Great tags Tracey! I like that you and Stacey (both with an "EY" in your names) both used the LilInker die cut words!! Your house looks fab - you're in a winter wonderland girl!!!

Renee said...

What a gorgeous tag Stacey made...
and your's is as always simply perfect! :)
And look at that snow...
OMGosh...
it's the white Christmas I dream of every year...
but then I actually want it gone on December 26th because I don't actually like snow and cold...
I'm a Southern girl. :(
Gorgeous!!

This was super fun, Tracey! You are a gracious hostess and I adore your tag! Thanks again for welcoming me to your 25 Days of Christmas Tags, sweets!

Cindy Brumbaugh said...

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas at the McNeeley's! Beautiful wreath on your home. Your card is lovely!

Kim Heggins said...

Tracey...both tags are fabulous, so fun and very festive. I have to say that you really have me hooked on making tags this year, I think it will be a new tradition of mine. Love it!

Kara said...

your house looks so pretty all decked out for the holidays!!

Sharron said...

Fabulous tags! Love seeing the snow and your house looks so festive. Looks like you're all ready for the holidays!

Lindsey said...

Love your holly jolly tag. So cute. The outside of our window looks just the same...white and snowy. Although your house looks much more jolly and festive than ours. We've been out of town and I still have our Thanksgiving wreath on the door...for shame...I've got to take that down in the morning.
