25 Days of Christmas Tags!

I'm here, with a few of the Ellen Hutson Design Ambassadors,  to share the tag[s] I've made for the sweet Tracey McNeely and her 8th annual
 
Let's get to those tags, shall we? 
That fabulous EBE Mountain Holiday set, and dies,
are at it again!
I've used the wonderful little MFT Elegant layers to create my tags … any shape will do with a simple punched hole for
your string!
 
 
By echoing a second layer, and only adhering the sides and bottom, you have the perfect pocket tag for a gift card!

 

 
 … and a spot for a cute sentiment, sentiment, sentiment!
 
 
 
Another one for the skier in your life … or someone who just needs a little lift at Christmas?
 Okay, I'll stop!
 
I'm so happy you stopped by today … please head over to Tracey's blog for a chance to win a fabulous prize from
Ellen Hutson, LLC!!

Sweet tags Michele! I love that they serve double purpose as gift card holders too. Clever girl!

Terrific tags, Michele. It's the ohhhhhhnooooooo skier, right? And it looks like that bunny slope took out a skier, too. Yikes! Gonna be honest and say I'm not quite sure about the sentiment, because I am not a skier and am not hip to the lingo/slang associated with the sport. The second tag also shows off your creative thinking with how you used your twine. So clever. I can tell you sure had fun! Thanks so much for sharing!

Really cute tags, Michele! I love how perfectly these elements work for a tag and the clever use for a gift card is genius!

Isabel Z said...

I love what you created!

Teresa Doyle said...

Lol. Love you sense of humour Michele as much as your sweet tags! Well done on both counts...haha

Patti said...

From start to finish you have worked wonders with this darling set!!

On your first tag I just I love the fun details you added like the disappearing screams and the ski poles sticking out of the mogul where there is no doubt a skier eating a snowball! LOL Your second tag is equally creative with the tram lines in twine reaching to the top of the mountain!! and if these tags aren't darling enough!! you made them into a card holder!!

Michele.... don't you dare stop!! : )

A gift card holder, too? That's genius!

Lisa Elton said...

These are both so much fun Michele! But I'm completely smitten with the double cable cars among the mountains and treetops!

Gorgeous tag designs and so clever to include a pocket to hold a gift card. Love the retro feel of the skier and mountain scene. Fabulous!

Awesome tag! Love the Mountain Holiday set!

These are fantastic! I love the idea of making gift card holders and I love all the layers and scenes.

I would have never thought of using the elegant rectangle STAX to make a tag, Michele! IT's a fantastic idea and it can serve as a gift card holder! I'll remember that.
I love the way you used the twine for the ski lifts. So clever!

Cathy Lillie said...

Wow! You've created some incredible scenes for a tag! I love how you added the twine for the cable wires on the ski lift. You have a great eye for details (and a good sense of humor, too!). Have a great day!

Anita in France said...

Wonderful, wintry scenes on such fun, shaped tags, Michele ... and genius to create space for a gift card too ... your attention to detail is, as ever, awesome! Hugs, Anita :)

Ivana Camdzic said...

Anhh these are so cute, Michele!! I saw these in IG - btw THANK YOU so much for the warm welcome - and I just loved them! I'm such a fan of making tag pockets - mostly because I think I just love to tuck in and hide little treasures :)
