I'm doing a late post tonight. Not like me. Everyone's in bed and I'm usually right there with them. :) But, after a busy day, I thought I might enjoy sharing in some bloggy time with a few gift tags I made yesterday for my own gifts. I've been making personalized Christmas note cards and a dozen gift tags for gifts for all the Piglets teachers. The Princess was sick all this week, so I've totally procrastinated and not finished the last few tags I need so she can take in her gifts. The Sultan took his in last Monday. I was so proud of myself for sending them in early so they would have them in time to use before they wrapped gifts, etc. Now, I'm still behind the eight ball. I do it to myself all the time! You know what they say, "Procrastinators unite! (Tomorrow)".
These tags are going on some coffee mug gifts I'm planning to make my Dad and brother's-in-law. I had a fun idea for them and hope to get them made this week. Oy. I'm sensing a pattern here. I've already listed several things tonight I plan "to do" this week. And, The Piglets have short days at school Tuesday - Friday! Yikes.
I used Lawn Fawn's Love You a Latte stamp and die set with my MFT Tag Builders 4 die set. I colored the coffee mugs and cups with my PrismaColor pencils, then die cut a post it note to mask each shape before sponging Distress Inks over the tags. (The Jennifer McGuire method) I used sentiments from MFT's Gift Tag Greetings stamp in addition to the Lawn Fawn set. I added red twine from Micheals and green sparkle Lawn Trimmings for the bow. (Love both of those twines.)
I'm excited to be playing along again with the Holiday Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. :) If you haven't happened to check that out, you really should. It's the most fun. Everyone enjoys cutting up about their coffee and obsessions with crafting! The hop has become quite huge!
I'm also playing along with the current Lawnscaping Challenge - Tag It! and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge - Tag It!.
Well, that is it for me. Late night and all. :)
Thanks SO much for stopping by to visit! Please come back again soon and please hop on over to check out all the coffee crafting goodness - take a break from Holiday Stress 2015!
