25 Tags for Christmas '13 - Day 20



Welcome back to Day 20 of 25 Days of Christmas Tags!

Today I have the lovely Laurie Willison from Soapbox Creations joining me as my guest. Laurie creates the most fantastic drool worthy CAS cards! I have have learned so much from her inspiration. When I wasn't sure what type of designer I was, but I did know that I was drawn to her creations, I would study her cards and look at mine to try and figure out what I was missing. Most often it was more like what I had too much of. I am still in awe of her cards and today I am in awe of this fabulous tag that she created for me!  I hope you pop over to her blog today and leave her some love and definitely have a look around.

To create my tag today I die cut two identical size ornaments, embossed and stamped on the white ornament and then offset the red ornament behind it.  I put in on to a kraft gift bag, I love kraft and red together.

Love the dangling bells on Laurie's cute tag!! Yours is so very pretty Tracey, I love the offset design!

Cathy Weber said...

I also have studied Laurie's blog ...and I do mean the "whole" blog many, many times trying to figure out how she comes up with so many fabulous CAS cards. I would "kill" to think like her see those designs pop into my own little head. Love your tag today too...love the red backer to your ornament, really makes it pop against the kraft bag.

Joyce said...

Another day of great inspiration. I love your kraft, white and red tag. Such a fun shape, too.

Bobby said...

A tag within a tag. A tag behind a tag. Both are wonderful.

Lynn said...

Laurie's tag is adorable and I love the satin ribbon on yours...gives just the right touch of extra elegance.

I just discovered your blog today via another one. Loving all the fabulous tags. So much inspiration for future projects which could also be used on cards.

Love the idea that so many of the tags could be used as decorations too.
