Lawnscaping Winter Blog Hop- Holiday Song Gift Tags





Ho-Ho-Ho friends! Thanks for hopping by for my stop on the Lawnscaping Holiday Blog Hop!  This is my little corner of the internet and I hope you decide to come back sometime. I blog about: DIY's, paper crafts, and everyday life.  I recently started blogging about my adventures in Bathroom Remodeling.

Today I want to share a set of tags I made to use on gifts for Christmas. Truth be told, I tend to buy stamps that I think are versatile as instead of occasion specific. I don't have many Christmas or winter themed stamps. However, I've this idea stewing to make gift tags with song lyrics on them, and I pulled out a couple of my favorite LF stamps to make it happen! 

Supplies: American Crafts cardstock, stamps:  Claire's ABC and Blissful Botanicals, Black Staz On ink, Martha Stewart micorbbead glitter, Ranger Glossy Accents, various markers from my stash, sequins from my stash.

I used the flower and vine from Blissful Botanicals and colored them red and green to look like poinsettias. I kind of love that I didn't have to buy a specific stamp to get this look. I had a lot of fun coming up with song quotes ( and I may have laughed a little too much putting a Hannukah song on a Christmas gift tag....lol)
\
I'm in love with this MS microbead glitter. I adhere it with Glossy Accents and it gives a really great texture and color to projects like this.
Enjoy the rest of the Hop! Before you go, please leave a comment below letting me know your favorite Holiday song (funny or sentimental I love them both! ). The folks at Lawnscaping have some great prizes to give away. Giveaway will be open until Dec. 15th at noon!

Click over to the fantastic blog: Cards By The Sea. (Note: if you get lost in a snow drift along the way, you can always go back to Lawnscaping's blog to see the order of the hop


Happy Hopping Holidays my friends! 

xoxo,
Michelle
