Inkspirations Christmas Blog Tour

I am so excited to be a part of the "Inkspirations Christmas Gift Blog Tour" and this is also a first for me!! There are 28 stops on this tour so make a cuppa and put your feet up.

You may have arrived here from Maureen's (Crazy Stamping Lady) blog, but if you are starting here, don't worry... you can make the complete tour just by following the links at the end of each post.

I am sharing with you some very lovely Gift Tags and their packaging, which I had made for my local markets. I was so happy with how they came together.

I have made them by using a small scrapbooking sleeve from my stash. The bottoms have been sealed to make a pouch. Each pouch contains 8 tags.

There are 3 in total so here they are:-
This first one is made using Old Olive and the very lovely Jolly Holiday DSP. The tags are made using Cranberry Crisp and Old Olive with teared pieces of the DSP. I have used the Gifted and Sparkly & Bright stamp sets.
Next up is this set made with Very Vanilla and Dashing DSP. I have used Old Olive and Real Red as the combo for the tags. The back of the tags have been stamped with a "to-from" image from the Gifted Set.
For the final tag pouch, I have used Old Olive, Chocolate Chip and Baja Breeze teamed up with the Ski Slope DSP. I have also used the same stamp sets as the previous ones.

Well that's all from me and I hope you enjoy the rest of the Blog Tour. Now you're off to see the creations of Tracey (My Creative Side). Thanks for visiting!!


Happy stamping,

Wow Karen, these are all gorgeous. What a great idea and such a perfect idea for craft markets. I think it must be a terrific way to use scraps as well. I love how you've packaged the tags using the scrapbook sleeves too, very clever. Thanks so much for sharing your idea...have a lovely Christmas.
