Some people like to use the ideas from Ali Edwards for December Daily. Others use Shimelle's Journal Your Christmas. Some people keep an Advent Journal recording their thoughts about the true meaning of Christmas. Or how about trying Reverb 2012 with Hope Wallace.
I couldn't decide what to do. I think I was all crafting-daily-out after 30 days of An Attitude of Gratitude and a holiday in Florida.
But then I saw these gorgeous papers from Anita: Christmas Carol Painted Papers
They are available as jpegs and I put them into Publisher to print off this time.
I decided I would make tags so I put 6 pieces of card in my printer and put 2 images on each Publisher page in landscape format. I printed off all the designs then mixed up the printed sheets and printed them again on the back. My card isn't very thick so I only printed with text quality. If I had used manila card I would have printed picture quality.
After I got this far I saw this blog post from Hope about her Reverb 2012 book. So I decided to put blank tags in between the printed tags and follow along with the Reverb questions.
I am using Ripe Persimmon Distress Ink to edge each tag and to stamp with.
I looked through my scrapbooking stash for numbers and embellishments. I used an Artist Cellar stencil that I bought in the States for the background on this tag.
This stamp is a Tim Holtz one bought from Joann's.
And this is another new stamp.
This is a Dyan Reaveley stencil.
If you would like to win a set of these pages please leave me a comment and I will choose a winner on Saturday morning. (10am GMT)
