This adorable banner was on my blog back in September, but it’s so cute and I wanted to show it to you again before Christmas! It’s not hard to make and would be great anywhere in your home!
You can find this banner on page 8 of the Holiday Catalog. I liked it so much I wanted to make one for myself. You know, one of the best ways to learn stamping is to copy some of the projects that are shown in the catalog! The Stampin’ Up! designers create some absolutely amazing things and I always learn when I “try” to copy their work!
You can make this easy banner by cutting strips of designer series paper 2-1/2″ wide x 4″ long. Then you just decorate your little strips! The Under the Mistletoe Designer Series Paper has some really pretty plaids that are great for this banner.
The letters were cut with the Large Letters Framelits. If you don’t have these dies, I highly recommend you get them ~ they are so useful!
Large Letters Framelits
I’ve used these for birthdays and anniversaries ~ and banners!
My favorite thing about these cute little rectangles is the adorable doilies at the top of each piece. They are created using the Detailed Baubles Thinlits Dies! This die set has a doily in it ~ love, love!! I got this die set JUST because of the doily die!! (Is that bad??)
And because these dies are not carrying over after December 31, right now they are 25% OFF!! The discounted price is $23.25 ~ if you want them, this is the time, before they are gone completely!

Thank you for stopping by today! Let me know what you think of today’s project, I love your comments!
Today I have two tags for you ~ circular tags made with different colors and lots of texture! The texture on these tags is provided by the Tin Tile Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. In my opinion this is the prettiest embossing folder we have!
This tag uses Tranquil Tide and Lovely Lipstick card stock. These colors pair so well together! A circle of Silver Foil is inserted between the two card stock layers. The Layered Circles Thinlits Dies help create these fun tags.
The second tag uses Lemon-Lime Twist card stock. I think I like this tag the best because this paper is so bright and fun, and it really goes well with the Lovely Lipstick 🙂
Both of these tags use the pretty 1/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon in Lovely Lipstick and some 1/2″ Lace Trim. The sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set. This is a wonderful set to have on hand. It has lots of sentiments for all occasions!
The winner of yesterday’s tag is — Jody Tomala!! Congratulations Jody! Jody’ said:

Thanks to all of you who left a comment! I love your comments!!
The Making Christmas Bright Bundle is adorable! The stamp set and coordinating punch make the cutest little bulbs! They are small enough to put on a tag like this one, and they’re so festive!
For my tags I always use the Scallop Tag Topper Punch. It’s a “no-brainer” for tags. Simply cut a 2″ wide strip of card stock and the punch does the rest, giving it a pretty scallop top and a hole for a piece of baker’s twine or ribbon. I’ve used this punch SO much, it’s an absolute basic.
The base of this tag is Crumb Cake card stock embossed with the Corrugated Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. Cherry Cobbler card stock was cut with the Delicate Lace Edgelits to add even more texture to this tag.
The bulbs were stamped in Cherry Cobbler and Shaded Spruce ink, and the little tops were punched from Galvanized Metallic Paper, using the Christmas Bulb Builder Punch.
This is a unique and fun tag, just right for that special gift! Would you like me to send you this tag? I’m giving it away to someone who leaves a comment today 🙂 Leave a comment by clicking below and I will use the Random Number Generator to choose one of the comments to receive the tag! (Sorry but I can only send to U.S. addresses.)

It is time to make gift tags and I love to make pretty tags for my gifts! Here’s a tag we made at my card classes last weekend.
The base of the tag is a piece of Whisper White card stock stamped with the Buffalo Check stamp. This stamp makes the greatest backgrounds, especially if you like a farmhouse theme — which I totally do!! Add a bit of a Chicken Wire Element for more interest.
The highlight of this tag is the tree cut with the In the Woods Framelits Dies. I love the way there are little bits of the tree that open up to look like 3D branches! These “branches” have been topped with some White Embossing Paste which really looks like snow!
