A gorgeous collection of tags once again! I am a traditional girl mostly, but I do get the blues sometimes!

Donna said...

More inspiration :) Thank you, everybody.
Love the simplicity of your Kraft tag, Tracey :)

Diane Jaquay said...

Love that globe, these are all so beautiful!!

Scrapthat said...

Beautiful work all around, however there is just something about brown paper packages tied up with string...
Love your Kraft tag with the gold and the lovely string Tracey!
:D
TFS everyone!

Marisa said...

Adore your tag, Tracey, as it has my favorite word front and center and all the more fun in kraft :)

Scrapthat said...

Drats, forgot to answer the question. The answer is ...both!
I like Traditional and Vintage, but since I had my little girl I also go with the non traditional fun bright colors and style. It's nice to mix it up anyway! :D

Ardyth said...

Yes. (both - traditional and non-traditional). Love your simple card with that pretty gold star!

KayM said...

Another array of beautiful and festive tags! Each and every one just beautiful! I love yours with the sentiment on the kraft and the little bells!

I Card Everyone said...

So lovely, Tracey! Would a tag on a card be eligible? LOve that stamp you've used!!!
=]

Kara Lynne said...

I love your kraft tag with that shining gold star! CAS gorgeous! I love both traditional and non-traditional colors. My eye seems to catch the non-traditional more often.

Barbara said...

Actually I use traditional and non-traditional colors on my cards. I start my card making for Christmas early and make lots of different designs, so that I don't have to make the same thing over and over again. That's why I like seeing all the different ideas on blogs and blog hops...I never know when I might see something that sparks an idea for a card. All the tags today are very creative and I love using tags on cards as well! Thanks for the inspiration.

Marilyn in Michigan said...

I usually use traditional colors for cards and tags. But I will pull out the pinks and lilacs to make a special one for my granddaughter.

hanufaktur said...

I enjoy both, the traditional and the non traditional colors.
Yesterday I made a card with matching tag, using soft pink, soft blue and silver.

Greta said...

I use all different color combinations as I make mostly one of a kind for the holidays. Love today's tags--especially yours with the bells, Tracey!

Jeanne Jordan said...

This is new to me and what a great idea. Can't believe you have been doing this for 4 years!! I almost always use traditional colors for my holiday cards, but I want to break out of that AND there are so many great ideas out there! I will be making some tags and entering them in your 25 Days of Christmas Tags!! Thanks for the opportunity.

ionabunny said...

I use both. It's nice to be traditional but sometimes you need to just go a little colour crazy. Hugz

Joyce said...

Fantastic post today, Tracey. Love all the Technique Tuesday tags. I use whatever colors I feel like for my holiday crafting, so I guess that might be non traditional.

Barb Ghig said...

Love all the fun tags from the TT Design Team! Fabulous CAS tag, Tracey...The gold star and bells are perfect with your sentiment!
I tend to use traditional colors on my Christmas cards and tags. Thanks for inspiring me to think outside the box on that :)

Lisa's Creative Niche said...

Love the new tags! I use both it just depends on my mood hehehe!

Isabel Z said...

I like to create two sets of Christmas cards for friends and family. One set with traditional and the other with nontraditional colors.

Denise Bryant said...

Awesome tags today! I love your pretty kraft and gold tag!
I use more traditional colors than non-traditional, but I do like to mix it up every now and then!

Vicki said...

I sue both traditional color and non traditional! One of my favorites is Turquoise. I also like Pinks with Green. I love it all!

Marybeth said...

Beautiful tags and I love the ‘peace on earth tags” We sure could use some of that. Love your CAS tag too Tracey!

Happy Dance said...

Fun tags by the TT DT! Love how colorful they are! And your tag....oh my goodness! CAS perfection! LOVE this fantastic tag with its gold jingle bells and that pretty star. You've outdone yourself here, my friend. This is simply stunning. And I guess in the past, when Christmas crafting I've used fairly traditional colors. I think I'll try to think out of the box a little this year though. I can hear pink and turquoise calling my name, lol! Love this 25 days.... Bev

Kara said...

very pretty tags!

snazzyjj said...

Red, green and gold - I am very traditional. Loving all the great inspiration!

Colleen said...

Hi Tracey, I use traditional colors...does blue count too? sometimes I have blue and silver with snowflakes. But I have Scandinavian ornaments and they are red and white!

KT Fit Kitty said...

Beautiful and adorable tags! I am seeing so many I want to CASE! I will be back to link up at some point! I am enjoying your tag event! I think I'm sort of old-fashioned as I enjoy traditional colours more than non-traditional although I do use both on my Christmas paper crafts.

Megan said...

Love your clean and simple tag for today, Tracey! I also love the little Jingle Bells. So much fun.

Karen King said...

Cute tags today.
I switch up the color schemes I use all the time. This year I've been into aqua and lime green as well as traditional red and white.

Annette Allen said...

loving all the tags.. so creative and love all the styles..

Marsha said...

I usually use traditional Christmas colors on my projects.
Beautiful tags (again) today. Loving these ideas.

Shannon McComb said...

All so sweet!! Just love these fun tags!!:)

Renee said...

More fabulous tags...
so much incredible inspiration!
Maybe I can get started this weekend! :)

Renee M said...

I use both, but maybe lean more towards traditional colors. These are more beautiful tags that give me crafting inspiration--thanks!

Lisa said...

Terrific cards from the TT team!! Your kraft and gold combo looks wonderful, cute tag!!

TracyM #6773 said...

FABULOUS tags today!!!
The TT team sure created colourful and cheery designs :)
LOVE your tag Tracey, your CAS design with the pop of gold on the Kraft is SO ELEGANT!!!
I usually use traditional colours, white with some metallic gold, silver, red or green ... been thinking about changing things up this year with some purple, pink and blue.
PS - the links to Teri's tags don't work (I accessed it via the TT blog)

Kristina B. said...

I do a little bit of both, depends on what I'm crafting. Scrapbook pages are usually traditional.

Julie Tucker-Wolek said...

Ohhhhhh these are all gorgeous!!!!!!!!

Lindsey said...

What a great variety of tags today! I like yours, Tracey, with its kraft base and CAS design. I use mostly traditional Christmas colours in my cards and tags, but break out once in a while!

Linda Rubarski said...

I use traditional colors on my cards.

Rahmat said...

I love your tag Tracey, it is so simple and very elegant.

Kristie Maynard said...

Beautiful tags! Thanks for sharing them. As for color, I do like both and use both, but I tend to be more of a traditional color gal.

Shelly said...

These are beautiful!!
And I tend to mix it up...sometimes I go traditional and sometimes non traditional for my colors. Guess it depends on what kind of mood I'm in. lol ;)

Jeri said...

I'm a traditional kind of gal for the most part. Every once in awhile I sneak in some bright and fun colors for the kiddies on my list.

Amy C. said...

I usually go for more traditional holiday colors with a bit of sparkle!

Berina RGA said...

Beautiful tags!! The kraft and gold one is definitely my favorite!!

Jacquie Southas said...

LOVE your perfect CAS tag, Tracey! Today I've been using nontraditional colors, but the majority of my Christmas tags & cards have green & red on them.

Jean Bullock said...

Unless I am doing a scene, I gravitate toward traditional for Christmas.

Lorraine A said...

Fabulous tags! I just returned from vacation so I am just catching up :-) I hope to join in with a tag today

Thanks for organising this awesome event Tracey! :-)

luv
Lols x x x

Anja Curvers said...

Wow awesome tags lots of inspiration all over. I think I grab the traditional colors for my christmascards. But I also like the soft blue colors.

vinita jain said...

Love Technique Tuesday and all are Fab tags! Your one is simply elegant on Kraft with gold! I almost love to make my Christmas creations in Non-traditional colors!

Teresa Doyle said...

These tags are all so lovely and fun, will definitely dress up a package or gift bag!

Kristie Goulet said...

Gorgeous tags, Tracey! I think I do both, non-traditional and traditional. :)

cm said...

Another round of fabulous inspiration, Tracey...and your tag certainly has captured my heart. Simple, classy, pretty! My colour choices run the spectrum from traditional to non-traditional (as evidenced by the recent rose and navy penguins I created recently *grin*). Yes indeed...this series of yours is absolutely awesome!
Hugs~c

Connie G said...

I tend to go with traditional colors - the standard red and green just scream Christmas to me but I do love navy and silver too!

Michele Henderson said...

Wow! This whole set of tags is just beautiful! Love all the color and details!
Take Care!
Michele

Kathy said...

I love to use non-traditional colors but I love Santa's so Red/Green sneak in alot. I love Daniela Dobson's tag "Jolly HOlidays" I did a take on her tag but not sure where to post it.

LauraJane:) said...

I like to use NON-traditional colors:)

Monika/Buzsy said...

These are super cute and fun! The globe looks great! I also love your simple Kraft tag with the touch of elegant gold. I usually use traditional colors.

TK Watson said...

Wow, great tags! I love each and every one, with its own style and adorable-ness!! How generous of TT, a prize and a discount :o)

jcobb said...

They are all so nice...I really love your tag, though! Beautiful! I sue both traditional and non-traditional colors in my Christmas crafts.

Jill said...

IN the past it has always been traditional. This year it's anything gold with a touch of white or craft color.

Marilyn said...

Wonderful tags! I like using all colors.

Loydene Brock said...

Love these tags! Took advantage of the Technique Tuesday coupon offer! Thanks!

Nora N. said...

Oh WOW!! These are amazing!! I LOVE each and every one!!

mandalj said...

I tend to avoid the red/green for my Christmas crafting as I don't like those colours normally so why should I use them just because it's Christmas?

Sharron said...

More fabulous tags! Love the more non-traditional designs & colors!

Asha said...

Gorgeous tags... I tend to use traditional colours mostly but occasionally make an effort to shake things up. Not often enough, though.
hugs Asha

Michelle said...

This "joy to the world" tag is one of my favourite tags ever! To me it is perfect! The question of traditional or non-traditional colours makes me giggle. I love traditional colours, but I'm forever breaking the colour rules when it comes to my Christmas cards and tags. :-)

BeverlyBL said...

I don't think I stick to any one color combination. I probably do use a lot of kraft card stock. I like the couple of tags that used black and may try that this year. All of the tags today are wonderful and great examples.

Jean Bullock said...

These are so wonderful that all you would have to do is put your present in a plan kraft box and stick the tag on it. That's how cool these tags are.

Bobby said...

What wonderful tags, Tracey, especially yours. I sometimes like to use kraft and gold or white for Christmas but then sometimes I love a good plaid. I'm wishi-washi that way.

Maureen Reiss said...

Wow!! These are wonderful!! I use traditional colors.

Helen Gullett said...

Stunning tags! Love the die set :)
I mostly use traditional colors on my tags, but this year I saw so many non-traditional colors for Christmas and I would like to try :) Thinking out side of my box!

cghundley said...

Terrific designs on
these tags. I like
to use traditional
colors for Christmas!

Robyn Oliver said...

mmmmm I think I'm a traditional colours girl but I do like a challenge to try and step out of those colour themes. Super Technique Tuesday world die.

stempelwelt said...

Those tags are amazing! Thos elves are so cute and I still love the typical red and green Christmas colors!

Ksenija Rizova said...

Your tag is just exceptionally luxury! Love it! And thanks for organising this challenge with loads of inspiration

Mary Holshouser said...

Love the world
I have the stamp but hadn't thought of a way to use it.
thanks for sharing.

Erin (Homemade Cards by Erin) said...

I tend to use more traditional colors, but I've definitely done challenges that have helped me get out of the red and green box.

Kelly Szafron said...

I use both traditional and non traditional colors in my Christmas crafting. Great tags!

Irene Grau said...

Oh man, I came here too late for the code! Bummer. I've been following the tags on contributors' sites and on FB, but neglected to come here. That'll teach me! Thanks for the pinterest board...following now!

natashakara said...

Wow! Tracey, you tag blew me away! I love how elegant it looks.

Kim Heggins said...

another wonderful collection of tags...love them all.

Liz Gessner McAllister said...

traditional colors

Birgit said...

These are all fabulous!! I love the tag with the trio of elves!!

Anita in France said...

What a wonderful array of tags, Tracey ... yours is particularly stunning and stylish! Hugs, Anita :)

Janet Zeppa said...

Awesome tags! I usually use a traditional colour scheme.

Maureen Hayes said...

I have always been a traditional colors girl when it came to Christmas, but this year I have been really attracted to the non-traditional retro colors, like teal, pink, lime green, etc,.. I guess I was due for a change!

Betty Sue said...

I make many tags for gifts too so depending on who is using it is what colors I use...both traditional and nontraditional.

Kit said...

Mostly I do traditional colors in my Christmas crafting but I do change it up every now and again.

Jinny Newlin said...

Ever so fun! Lovin' those stacked elves! Too cute!

Lindsey said...

Fabulous! I think I tend to steer nontraditional...ironic now that I think about it considering my tree is chalk full of traditional colors.

Carolee McCaslin said...

I usually use traditional colors but every once in a while I mix it up and use pink,teal and green together! Great inspiration today:)

Larissa Heskett said...

SO FUN!! LOVING the Designs!! I'm a Fan of BOTH Traditional and Non-Traditional!! Again it depends on my mood and the recipient!! =) THANKS for sharing and have a FABULOUS WEEK!! =)

Miriam Prantner said...

Love the TT dies, and they have some really cute images too! I prefer traditional when it comes to Christmas.

Monika Reeck said...

so elegant Tag Tracey love this
and I love the non traditional one
cause I like to make another color not only the traditional
ladies your tag all rock love them all

Karen said...

Typically, I use traditional colors--but that includes black, kraft, and gold as well---LOVE your tag!

Sandy said...

More great inspiration, and your kraft tag is so elegant.
I do a mix of colors; sometimes classic red/green and sometimes non-traditional. All red and green would just be boring.

Sandi said...

I am somewhat a non-traditional kind of gal so I definitely go for a mix of traditional and non-traditional colors. One of my favorite color combos is pink and silver.

Melissa Friedrich said...

LOVE these beautiful tags, so much inspiration each day! For my tags, I use whatever I have the most supplies for regarding traditional or non-traditional colors. This year I seem to have collected a lot of dark red and green paper, inks and embellishments so I will try to use up some of that.

Judy Tuck said...

It depends on the specific project but I do like some non-traditional colours!

I'm a Little Teapot said...

The tags made me smile. :)
It all depends on my creative mood and what I see on my desk. If I just happen to have not put a pad of paper away then that might be all the inspiration I need for tag creation.

KandA said...

I guess I go more for traditional warm christmas colours but also love the blues and whites for those more snowy themes. More amazing inspiration and I love the classiness of the kraft tag xx

Laraine R said...

More great tags today. I use traditional colors.

Crafty Math Chick said...

Oh my gosh I need that globe die - it's AWESOME! I make all kinds of tags over the holidays - traditional colors & non-traditional too. Thanks for the chance to win!

Nana Griffin said...

I make several different card designs for Christmas and do both. Some I use the traditional but then I also end up with some in blues.

Rema said...

I make both but I prefer non traditional.

francesca said...

i usually use traditional colors, but i'd love to try non traditional too! :)

Aileen (mum) said...

Both but much more drawn towards non traditional.

Dr Sonia S V said...

Such a lovely collection. I am more inclined towards traditional colors
Cheers
Dr Sonia

Christine said...

Tracey I love your tag, it is so simple but elegant. I tend to use what ever colors match my paper so it can go either way.

Marianne said...

I love both tradition and non-traditional colours for my Christmas cards.
