November PTI Blog Hop

Hello and welcome everyone! Today is PTI Blog Hop day and this months challenge is in honor of the fast approaching holidays. With this in mind, we are to create a quick and inexpensive tag or wrap idea that can be the perfect solution for "grab and go" gifts.

I was on a roll for this challenge, I have a few creations to share with you. First up are Tags... This tag set was stamped using labels from Vintage Labels set, images from Winter Swirls set and sentiments from Signature Christmas, then cut out by hand (since I don't have the label 1 dies). Colors used were: Dark Chocolate, Scarlet Jewel & Spring Moss. Each tag was finished off with just a touch of glitter added to the swirls and dark chocolate floss. To use just stamp or write To & From onto the back side and attach to the gift.

Keeping with the quick and inexpensive ideas, here are a couple of bags...
It doesn't get any easier than this! Just stamp a sentiment in Ocean Tides and a few snowflakes in white, both from Snowflake Serenade. Then embellish with a big button bow, glitter and call it good.
Last and certainly not least is a simple yet classy look. Started with a strip of Scarlet Jewel cardstock, stamped it with snowflakes from Winter Swirls in Versamark. Layered one of the tags from above onto the strip and embellished with ribbon. Easy Peasy!

I do hope you enjoyed my creations and found some useful and easy ideas to help you out this holiday season (which will be here before we know it!). Thanks for hopping by and have a blessed Thanksgiving day tomorrow!

  9. I love the bag with just the snowflakes in the bottom corner. I think it's crazy to think that non-stampers might not realize how great a simple little bag can look by just adding some stamping to it!
