Snowman Luggage Tags

Yes, I've been doing more luggage tags. I just can't seem to leave them alone. These were for Logan (remember Claire's step-son) and Abby (my daughter-in-law's little sister who LOVES snowmen).

HoHoHo is on Very Merry Tags while the snowmen are on Snow Friends.

Although I did not include them in the file, I used Printing 101 for the names.

Logan was thrilled with his, but Abby hasn't gotten hers yet.

Some of those snowman pieces were so small that they did not cut very well at all. I ended up enlarging pieces for the eyes and mouth for the snowman with his arms down. That's the Eyes & mouth page of the file. The correct size of those pieces are also on the Snowmen Pieces page. I would go ahead and cut that page, then cut the other one only if needed. Who knows, yours may cut ok.

I hope that everyone has a very safe New Year's Eve. This is the night that I try to stay home. Be careful and I'll see you next year.

Happy New Year!


Crown Gift Card

Back in August, we celebrated Angie and Rose Mary's birthdays. Yes, I am rather behind sharing with you. Sorry. Anyway, here's Rose Mary's card.

This test cut shows it a little better. There's one base cut with tic marks to make folding easier.

Then one crown to layer and bling up.

I stamped Happy Birthday with a CTMH stamp, outlined the crown with Stickles and added gems. Just perfect for our Glitter Queen.

Because of the size of the crown, this one has to be cut on an Expression. However, it is set up to use either George or Plantin along with Happily Ever After.

Maybe you have a little princess in need of a gift? :o)

More Cards w/ Argyle

I hope you haven't given up on me yet.

You might remember when I posted my Mother's Day card that I said the base could be used for any occasion. Well, I've managed to use it a few more times.

Another cousin's daughter had a precious baby boy a few months ago and I needed a card for her baby shower. Then my son's best friend got married and I needed a card to send with their wedding present.

I love the little monkey on Sweethearts and thought he HAD to be used. It's a Boy came from Wild Card, but I wasn't totally happy with it. To give it a little boost, I added a signboard from Storybook.

Congratulations came from New Arrival.

In the photo above, you can see the layers used to make the monkey. I just love layered cards.

Again, I added vellum to the inside and cut an envelope. Remember that this envelope can only be cut on the Expression.

Then it was Josh's turn. Sweethearts came in handy once again with the wedding bells. I used an embossed vellum to cut the top layer of the bells and chalked the clappers. The card had to be turned landscape so that everything would fit properly. I like the change.

Best Wishes was cut from Cuttin' Up. I should have been pickier about where the pop dots went, but I thought the vellum would cover it up better. I was at a crop when I made this card and didn't have the vellum with me.

My friend Kay also used this base to make a baby girl card. I don't have pictures and only created a basic cut file, but I will share the file with you. We used the onsie from New Arrival and the scalloped circle from Mini Monograms for trim on the onsie. I believe she also turned hers landscape.

I hope these give you some ideas and I'll try to do a better job at posting more often.
