Stamp Simply Celebration, Blog Candy and Christmas Tags

Published by at 11:10 pm under Challenges,Christmas,Holiday,Monograms,Spellbinders

Hi Everyone!  Gee I feel like I’ve been missing in action!  Well, not so, I’m here, just incredibly busy. 

Today is day 11 of the Stamp Simply Celebration and I’m giving away blog candy to two lucky winners. One lucky winner will receive a Countdown to Christmas Bo Bunny scrapbook kit and a new, unmounted, Stampin’ Up! sentiments stamp set entitled:  “Lots of Thoughts”.  Pictures of my completed album are shown below.  The kit consists of complete instructions, together with all materials, including a 6″ x 6″ linen and chipboard album.  A second lucky winner will receive four new, unmounted, Stampin’ Up! stamp sets entitled: “Blooming with Happiness”, “Friendship Blooms”, “Oh, So Lovely”, and “So Many Scallops”.

Okay ladies, here are the rules:  To win this blog candy comments will work like raffle tickets.  For every comment you leave on any Christmas design I’ve posted in my blog, you will be entered for a chance to win the prizes, your comment is your raffle ticket.  Leave only one comment per post please, duplicates will be deleted.  If you click on Christmas under Categories in the bar on the left side of my blog, or click here and all Christmas posts will appear.  Please comment only on the six posts that have designs that I’ve done, including this one.  You are NOT required to comment on all of them to qualify for the blog candy; however, the more Christmas posts that you leave comments on the better your chances of winning, i.e., you can have anywhere from 1 to 6 raffle tickets.  I will use Random.org to choose two names from each of the six posts.  Once I have the twelve names, I will then use Random.org to choose two names from the twelve finalists to determine the two lucky winners.   You have until December 17, 12:00 noon (Wednesday) to post your comments.  I will announce the lucky winners on the morning of December 18. 

Every year I take a lot of pictures at Christmas and never seem to find the time to scrapbook them.  I’m very challenged at scrapbooking and that’s why I absolutely love the Bo Bunny kits.  I adore the Countdown to Christmas kit, it was super fast and easy to put together.  I’ve made one and embellished it a bit more than what is in the kit.  I’m showing the entire scrapbook album and the pages so that you can see my “more is more” version.  I’m all set to go, I’ll fill it with my Christmas photos the week following Christmas when everyone is busy playing with their new “toys”.

Album cover and back.  The zig zag stitching is Kaiser rub ons.

scrapbook-3.jpgscrapbook-6.jpg

Inside covers, front and back and the front page of the album.  I’ve added brads, the little Christmas tree and some brass hardware.  Each page will be filled with pictures of the 10 things I love about Christmas.

scrapbook-7.jpgscrapbook-8.jpg

Pages 1 and 2:  I have changed the designs a bit from what is in the kit and have added brass hardware.

scrapbook-9.jpgscrapbook-10.jpg

Pages 3 and 4 are so adorable!  I used a quickie glue pen to draw on the holly leaves, ornament, and gingerbread man and added glitter.  I used SU’s mat pack to create the faux stitching on the large circle and photo corner on page 4.

scrapbook-11_edited-1.jpgscrapbook-12.jpg

I added a lot of extras to pages 5 and 6.  I love the stars, I entwined gold cord around the largest one and added glitter to the embellishments. 

scrapbook-13.jpgscrapbook-14.jpg

I added the oranments, ribbons, stars, and a boot to pages 7 and 8.  Again, I didn’t exactly follow the instructions that came with the kit, most of the layouts have been altered.  I added faux stitching and glitter.  I like to take these kits and do a “more is more” version.

Pages 9 and 10 were fun to make, I can’t wait to fill these pages with photos of my family.

The final page wraps up the scrapbook.

AJ Otto The Willow Garden – Are you wrapping gifts yet?  Probably!  I’ll bet you need some pretty tags to dress those packages up — well, be sure to check in on AJ’s Featured Project today to see all her gift tags.  And then play AJ’s challenge so you, too, can have some nice gift tags on hand!!!  Be sure to stop in at AJ’s today!

I love the idea of making gift tags.  Below are tags I designed for gifts for my girlfriends, showing both a close up and a group shot of them.

christmas-wreathtags-3_edited-1.jpgchristmas-wreathtags-1.jpg

I was shopping the other day and came across a box of notecards that had a beautiful wreath on the cards.  I bought them, came home and cut the wreaths out using a circle nestibilities.  I used my JustRite stamper and embossed the monogram in gold using Gold Encore ink.  I used a refill bottle of Encor ink and placed it in the JustRite Small 1-Reversible Ink Pad.  I cut the gold and Rose Red scallops using the petite scalloped nestibilties.  I drew around the edge of the monogram and wreath with a pale gold Krylon pen.  I tied gold cord bows and adhered to the front of the tags.  A super simple project that didn’t take long at all.  It’s hard to see in the picture, one of the tags is adhered to a Gold Christmas tree filled with chocolates.  There’s a larger gold bow and red ornament at the top of the tree. 

You can see more tag samples by checking out the blogs of:  Heather, JanineLeAnne, and Sharon.

    Last year I decided to make a little scrapbook of all those picture cards I get in the mail at Christmas, so it will be fun to see how everyone grows and changes through the years! I find that I actually prefer these smaller books over the large scrapbooks for the ease in not only storing, but sharing with friends and family.
    Great job, and TFS!!

  91. Laurie says:

    What a great theme for a Christmas scrapbook. Thanks for sharing it.

  92. Susan G says:

    What gorgeous tags. I don’t scrapbook, but your pages are delightful. Makes me want to think about starting a different hobby. Thanks so much for offering the two prizes. Both are wonderful.

  93. Dana Herin says:

    I love the idea of the album. Although we each know what is special about the holidays for ourselves, it is nice to be able to “document” for others, especially our children, what the holidays really mean to us.

    I recently bought the nestabilities circles and scallop circles to do monogram notecards as gifts. The tags are another wonderful idea using these which I did not think of. What a wonderful, thoughtful gift for someone.

  94. Debbie Stelton says:

    Jerri your projects are wonderful TFS. Thank you for giving me the chance to win some great blog candy. Have a wonderful day.

  96. diane says:

    Love your work. I made one of the Christmas scrapbooks from Bo Bunny and I love it. Trying to make one each year since I take so many Christmas pictures and it’s hard to select just a few to go in my scrapbooks, so I have started making a Christmas scrapbook. Wish I had seen your tags before I made mine. Your are much much better and prettier

  113. Kerry from PA says:

    Hmm, I may need to get some of those scrapbook kits. I too have tons of pics but never get around to putting them in a scrapbook. Those tags are stunning too. I would never have thought to buy cards to use as tags with the nesties/justrite stampers.

  114. Nadine Papove says:

    I just love the scrapbook and the tags are so beautiful. What a great idea. I am just starting to get into scrapbooking and find it quite overwhelming. Your samples make it look a little less intimidating. Thanks for the inspiration.

  115. Hilda says:

    Wow – your gift tags are gorgeous. If one were to come my way, it would go right on my tree as an ornament, and be treasured for years to come. Love the scrapbook too – it might just be inspiration enough for me to get busy with all my Christmas photos (past and soon to be taken!).

    Wow! I’m impressed that you have an album done before you have even taken pictures. It’s kind of a neat idea though because then when you are taking pictures you can be thinking about what photos you want for the pages you have put in the album. hmmmm….

    Found you on SCS and simply had to get a better look at those beautiful tags!

  129. Karen L. says:

    What a super idea to make your Christmas album up ahead of time! Even I would be able to handle putting the photos in after the holidays! What a great gift idea this would be for my non-scrapping sisters.
    Those gift tags are so beautiful, it’s hard to believe you just started with notecards! So simple and yet so perfect!

  130. Chris says:

    What a treasure that album would be for any family and a magnificant holiday gift. The tags are wonderful as well. Thanks for sharing your work with us and for the chance for goodies.

    I love your album idea and am going to try it this year. I find that having to come up with all my layouts from scratch after the holidays is just overwhelming. Your pages are simple but catch all the must-have events of the season.
    Thanks so much for giving us the chance for this awesome prize!

    Oh wow, you’ll have so much fun putting your pics that scrapbook! It’s awesome! I also love those tags- you have a steadier hand than I do when it comes to outlining with those paint pens! You rock!

  142. Elaine says:

    Jeri! The tags are just lovely! I’d like to see one of those tags on MY package under the tree! (hint, hint!) LOL just kidding. Anyway, I have a bo bunny scrapbook kit – it sure is cute and easy! I like that you got yours done early this year…good job! :)

  143. Annelies says:

    Very nice album! I’ve never made such an album in advance, it seems very practical. But I’m afraid I have to little organisation to ever do such a project. Greetings from Belgium, Annelies

  148. Wanda Cullen says:

    Your scrapbook and tags are both INCREDIBLE!! I’m generally glad just to complete about 60 cards for Christmas much less make the tags as well! I have a Just-Rite monogram stamper so there’s no excuse for me to not CASE your gorgeous tags!

    The wreath tags are incredible.
    Those tags could be cards!
    The monogram makes it extra special too!

  152. Nan says:

    I love the scrapbook pages. What a wonderful idea! I’m inspired to do this next year for our family Christmas.

    The tags are beautiful but not sure I have enough patience to take on a task like this.

    Thanks for the gift of your blog candy.

    the scrapbook pages are beautiful but I am totally in love with the tags!! hehehe I might have to case some and then change all the tags on my gifts!

  156. Connie says:

    Amazing! Your gift tags are truly amazing! I would be afraid to use them because I think they need to be framed. Love them!

  157. Colleen says:

    What an adorable scrapbook – you are not scrapbook challenged by any means! I have loads of Christmas pictures and always start scrapbooking them, but never seem to get finished! I just love how you’ve prepared the pages ahead of time.
    And your tags are scrumptious. All of the layers and the gold, they are simply regal.

    All I can say is “WOW”. I love the scrapbook and the designs you made – great job!!
    I also love the gift tags, I had not thought of that, what a neat way to use one item and turn it into something so wonderful. I see where these nestabilities are a handy tool, I will need to get me a set or two someday.
