A Trio of Tags

I made these for the November 2010 Papertrey Ink blog hop. The theme is tags! There's another reason I made these, about which you'll hear soon.

I used the PTI Tag Sale 1 die, and one of the PTI Limitless Layers dies. Also Background Basics: Christmas, one of my new favourite sets! I thought the pink, green, and grey was a fun colour scheme for Christmas.

Here's a look at the base of the tags, which I really like. I created a background out of different borders stamps from BB: Christmas.

All dies and stamps are PTI, ink, paper, and ribbon (except the pink, which is from Michael's) are SU.

Thanks for stopping by!

Crafting with friends... my favourite way to craft! My friend Renée was over with her daughter (Chloe's best friend) and while the little girls were painting, I convinced Renée to make a few cards! Now she doesn't like to admit it, but she's a very crafty girl (ask her to see the Advent calendar she made for her daughter!)
She used mostly PTI products, and this is what she made!
The first card also has stamps from Pink Cat Studio. Don't you LOVE those glittery snow drifts?
I think the first card here could be something sold at Ikea. And the last card is my favourite. I think I'm going to copy it myself!

Of course the girls couldn't stay away from the stamps, so they decorated envelopes:

I had a few pieces left over from another crafty night (photos from that coming soon!) so I made this today:
I just LOVE Background Basics: Christmas! That wee mouse is adorable.

Merry Little...Spring?

I was very excited to purchase PTI's Merry Little Christmas. And the first card I made with it?

It's not yet winter, and I'm already looking forward to spring!

Don't you love the PTI Sunshine Impression Plate? And the scalloped border of felt? I used my favourite dotted flourish (from Holiday Button Bits) for the grass, and the sentiment is from Mini Scrapbook Series: Journaling Circle.

All supplies are PTI (except Chocolate Chip, Almost Amethyst, and Lovely Lilac inks.)
