Hoppin' into the Holidays with TGF!!!

Happy Holidays!! Merry Christmas!! This is my favorite time of year. I love Christmas, I love Christmas songs. Just listening to them makes me feel happy. That's why when I saw that TGF was having this Hoppin into the Holidays, I knew I wanted to pull out my favorite TGF holiday stamps. I have been on a tag making kick recently. They are fast & fun to make - you can try out new techniques without a lot of waste and they just look cool! You can use them to put on gift bags or presents or even put them on a card as a fast & easy already made embellishment!

For my first tag, I used one of my NEW favorite Christmas sets - A Cheeky Xmas - LOVE this gal! I created my background with the snowflake from Keep Cozy - another adorable set - also using the sentiment from that I distressed some of my Tim Holtz trim as well as the tag in Fired Brick & Vintage Photo.
For my next set of tags, I used the super cute Merry Tags - I got these last year and wouldn't you know, never used them!! So, in my effort to handmake tags for presents this year I got started with these. I just stamped them on the tag in memento and colored the image with a combo of atyou glitter pens, copics & white gel pen. Then distressed the edges and added decorative ribbon for added flair & done!

I saved my favorite for last (which is full of covered mistakes, LOL) - so I hope you are still here!!! I've been having a blast making hand made ornaments for our tree and I just knew I wanted A Cheeky Xmas up there! I used some TGF holiday paper from my stash and cut out a frame and popped it up on the silver cardstock. Then placed my sentiment in the fancy frame and popped that up as well so it was flush with the DP. I kinda messed up cutting it out on my cuttlebug so I added the flowers to the bottom to cover that up but I love them! I also messed up on coloring her so I ended up paper piecing since I really didn't have time to color up another. But again, LOVE how that turned out, too!
Thanks for stopping by & I hope you enjoy the hop - remember there are prizes to be had! Be sure to check out The Greeting Farm blog for a full list of bloggers participating in todays hop! I'm so excited and can't wait to see what everyone prepared.

Merry Christmas!
