Pink and Green AND, Kraft, Red and White...STAMPlorations Holiday TAGplorations Event - November 4 - 8, 2016

Hello,

I'm thrilled to be joining the STAMPlorations gals (please, please be sure to visit them...their tags are incredible!) for the first Holiday TAGplorations Event! Seriously...how much fun is this!  TAGS! Love 'em!

My first set of tags were 100% inspired by the packaging of my fabulous CUTplorations dies: they're tucked into a little bag (easy to store/organzie) that features the CUTplorations logo (red and white) and a piece of kraft cardstock added for stability.  As for the dies themselves: LOVE x LOVE (I know I've said this before but...repetition, especially in this case, is a very good thing *grin*). And the stamps...oh my! More love!

Here's my trio of kraft + red + white tags...




My second set uses the same images, but with a pink/green/red theme. My zigs came out for a play and we actually got along reasonably well....




My simple sets of tags will be attached to bags of baked goods my mom will be making for the annual Christmas Bazaar at the seniors' residence where she volunteers. I've kept them 'small' in keeping with the sizes of the bags; hopefully, whoever buys mom's yummy cookies and other assorted sweet treats will re-purpose the tags on gifts of their own.

So, are you ready to play along?  Of course you are! For some extra enticement, checkout the amazing prizes Shery is offering:

10 prizes (with a value of $178+) will be distributed among randomly drawn winners:
  • (3) randomly drawn winners from all comments left on the STAMP blog and participating designers blog will each receive a $15 gift certificate to the store
  • (3) randomly drawn participants to the TAGplorations linky party will each receive the Luggage Tag Dies
  • (3) randomly drawn participants to the TAGplorations linky party will each receive the ATC Tag Builder Dies
  • (1) randomly drawn participant to the TAGplorations linky party will receive a $25 gift certificate to the store
Impressive, right? Okay....
Please design one (or several)  holiday tags (any holiday tag -- not just Christmas) and join the linky party!
*Commenting and linking up is from November 4 to November 25, 11:55 p.m. Pacific (3 weeks)
*Winners announced on December 9 in the November Challenges & Hops winners post

Ready. Set. Go!
Looking forward to seeing your tags in the gallery!

  24. Carol, these are AWESOME! I love how completely different these two sets of tags are just by changing up the colours. I love the bright and cheery colours on the second tags but the first ones are so awesome in their simplicity and "nakedness"! Cannot pick a favourite set I'm afraid. Love them all!
