Jolly Tags

Hello Nomad friends.  I love July when blogland starts to think seriously about Christmas.  Now, I know some of you have just turned off, or run away.  I know how you feel!  I used to hate to hear or think about Christmas before November.  But I realised that that's too late if I want to make and send my own cards.  And I started finding awesome challenge sites that did Christmas all year, encouraging us to make a card or two a month, and suddenly it's easy to have enough for the big day.  So now I am full on Christmas anytime, and especially July, which is as good a time as any to step up the xmas production.  The good thing is, I do tend to use everything I make each year, so thanks to all those awesome site encouraging me to use my xmas stash.  Scrappegarasjen are having a Christmas in July weekend, or Jul i Juli as we say in Norwegian.  I've been having fun making a few things and hope to make some more before they close the doors at midnight tonight.  

They have asked for tags in sets of at least 5 and I was particularly pleased with these red and green beauties.  I cut the tags using a Stamploration stitch die and stamped with Rubber Dance Mixed Media Grid stamp using red ink for that whole tone on tone thing.  The norwegian sentiments are also Rubber Dance, possibly still available by special request.  I found these cool felt trees the other day while rattling through some seldom used drawers, and the ties are funky green velour pipecleaners.  I think they add a certain jolly to the whole set.  

It's a bit wet here today, but warm, so I might feel inspired to cool off with some more xmas.

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz

I really like all the texture and details in your tags! The felt trees and the pipe cleaners are my favorite! That background stamp adds another texture too, which is what I love on cards and tags! Thank you for joining us this month at Christmas Craft Creations!
