Craft It Up & Link It Up #20 - Tag, You're It

Happy Monday!! I hope you had a wonderful weekend!! For my US friends, how are your plans coming along for Thanksgiving?? Are you traveling?? I can't wait for all the yummy goodies on Thursday...turkey and pumpkin pie :)


It's time for another fun challenge at Craftin Desert Divas!! The challenge this week is: Tag, You're It. We want to see your projects using a tag. The sponsors for this challenge are Too Cute by Jessica with a $20 gift card, and Cardz TV with a set of stamps.


For my project, I created a Christmas tag using several Tim Holtz products. The tag was cut with a TH Tag and Bookplate die. The papers are from My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Christmas stack. The trees were colored with TH Pine Needles and Walnut Distress Markers and cut out with the coordinating TH Holiday Joy Framelits. Santa was colored with Festive Berries and Black Soot Distress Markers and cut out with the coordinating Retro Christmas Framelits set. His beard and fur were covered with Ranger White Enamel Accents and he was popped up with foam tape for dimension. Merry Christmas was stamped with Versafine Black ink and then inked with Walnut Distress Ink and Festive Berries along the edges. It was covered with Glossy Accents and then popped up with foam tape when dry. The holly in the corner was stamped with Pine Needles Distress Marker and cut out with the coordinating Holiday Joy Framelits. The berries were added with Liquid Pearls.


I am entering this in the following challenges:
  1. Little Scrap Pieces - Anything Goes
  2. DL.Art - November Linky
  3. Sunday Funday - November Linky
  4. Just B Creative Crazy - November Linky
Now it's your turn!! Head on over to Craftin Desert Divas to see the amazing projects my talented design team sisters have created for today's challenge. Then link up your Tag, You're It project...I can't wait to see what you create :)

Thanks for sharing and have a GREAT Monday!!

~ I am hosting Thanksgiving this year...I LOVE to cook so it has become a tradition that we have it at our house....Since my sisters both have significant others and they spend Thanksgiving with them...It is just my family and my inlaws which is totally fine with me! A big yummy dinner and then a few days of leftovers....So looking forward to it!

Hi There! I fell in love with your tag, that Santa is the BEST!! I really LOVE the paper too! You're so AWESOME Lisa!

I hope you are staying warm! It's cold there huh? We are finally hitting some cold temps but then today we warmed up. I was totally going to tease you and Sherrie and send you a pic and tell you it snowed here is Los Angeles - I was at the Grove in LA (it's an open air mall) over the weekend and they make it fake snow (foam) - We call it LA snow :) funny huh?

Happy Monday my friend!

My sweetest friend, I simply couldn't flutter off to sleep without leaving you some bloggie love! :o) Your tag (which I quickly admired earlier) is absolutely lovely! You are such a natural with TH products, which you've so festively shown here. Santa looks AMAZING and I love that his jolly self extends beyond the tag border. :o) The MME background is so beautiful and I truly love the trees and sweet holly corner. Stamps and matching dies are such fun! Exquisite work as always, my dear Lisa! I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving, filled with love, beauty, and extra pie. ;)

Hugs and blessings!

Love the retro Christmas tag. I ended up having Thanksgiving at my house. Not like expected with one sister missing (my older, middle sister was supposed to come out bit with everything she has going on right now, it's not happening) but still had other sis, her husband and MIL. I always make a pumpkin cheesecake -- so yummy.

Nana said...

Have a creative day.
