Tag Time 56

Mona Pendleton | Tuesday, September 14, 2010 @ 9:28 AM | , ,


Hi Friends! I had some "me" time last night while my hubby was preoccupied with Monday Night Football - can I just say how much I LOOOOOVE football season ;) I made this tag for this week's JustRite Friday's Challenge: Christmas in September where Sharon is challenging us all to ink up our JustRite stamps & create a Christmas/holiday tag. If you visit here often, you probably know how much I love tags of all shapes & sizes so I just had to play along! Note the lil' sentiment tag? I made that by pairing a sentiment from Christmas Nested Sentiment & Verse along with a tag cut using the S5-081 Tags Five die template.

I pulled out one of the Spellbinders™ LF-190 Grand Labels Four die templates & filled it up with some goodies. What do you think of that lil' calendar? That is a FREE downloadable image courtesy of Sharon Harnist! She also generously offers many other FREE popular images - be sure to visit her blog - click HERE - & take a peek for yourself - I bet you will find something that will tickle your fancy ;) I love the way the calendar fits perfectly with Calendar Borders & Centers & a S4-161 Labels One die template! Makes it so easy to create a lil' calendar - I have BIG plans for these ;) I am going to beg Sharon to create a 2011 calendar for us so we can get a jump start on gift giving projects for next year :)

Adorning the tag is a vibrant Poinsettia that I created using S4-219 Nested Poinsettias die templates. It is only ONE of many Spellbinders™ Seasonal Die templates currently available!

Thanks so much for looking! Be Sweet

Supplies Used: Stamps: JustRite Calendar Borders & Centers, Christmas Nested Sentiment & Verse Die Templates & Machine: Spellbinders™ Grand Nestabilities® LF-190 Labels Four, S4-161 Labels One, Shapeabilities® S5-081 Tags Five, S4-219 Nested Poinsettias, GC-001 Grand Calibur Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Bamboo Leaves, Desert Sand, Copic Marker R29 Lipstick Red
