It's Black Friday and time for the Baker's Dozen Studio Challenge and a BIG Black Friday Sale at Taylored Expressions!!!

We are releasing a brand new set of dies today~ the Labels Stacklets 3 which coordinates with the Frame It Up 1 Die!  These dies will be available today as part of the sale!

I am so excited to be participating in the Studio Challenge this month!  Here is the question:

As crafters, we often talk about a hand-crafted Christmas. How much stamping do you do for the holidays?  Do you mail hand-stamped cards, make gift packaging, tags, handmade gifts?  Or do you stamp year-round, but not so much for Christmas?  Please show us some handmade tags and share a tip or two on how to keep stamping fun for the holidays.

Unfortunately I don't have a lot of time to make too many hand-crafted gifts for the holidays.  I try to make as many hand-stamped cards as I can for my close friends and family.  I also LOVE making gift tags.  This year I am trying to make a few sets to hand out as gifts. 

I also love to make little boxes which are perfect for gifting ornaments.  I think mixing it up with cards/tags/boxes keeps crafting fun for the holidays!  Here are some tags I made the other day using the adorable Taylored Expressions set~The Cool Crowd!

For this tag I used the smaller snowman from The Cool Crowd along with the Trim the Tree Dies, the Banner Day 1 Die, and I embossed one of the Totally Tags Dies to put behind the image. 

For this tag I used my favorite snowman along with the Banner Day 1 Die and the Totally Tags Die.  I embossed the Totally Tags Die with the Cuttlebug Snowflake Embossing Folder for each tag.

Here is a close up of the final tag.  I used My Mind's Eye Winter Wonderland dp on all of the tags and added a punched snowflake with a pearl center to this one:)
