TSG Holiday Tags Blog Hop!

Wednesday, November 25, 2009

Hello and welcome to the There She Goes Holiday Tags Blog Hop!

We're showing you sneak peeks all week long of the new sets being released in December and you won't want to miss a single day! If you've stopped by my blog from the uber talented Maki Jones's blog, then you're on the right track, but if you've stopped here by chance and would like to play along on this hop, just head over to TSG blog and start your journey there.

I made two cards for you today so you could see how versatile these tags really are. If you haven't figured out by now, the tags are a three-step stamp set with a few choices for embellishments, so you can mix and match to your heart's desire!

On this first card I wanted to show the tag as it would typically be used...as a tag of course! I used this week's Whimsical Wednesday sketch for the layout. You can check it out after the hop. :)


For this second card I wanted to give you a different look at how to use the set. I stamped out the embellishment images from the set, colored them up then mounted them on squares of book text paper. It's quite striking when layered on the red patterned paper.

I think I've kept you long enough, now back to the TSG blog for some more eye candy! Thanks for hopping by!
