I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!  Taylored Expressions is running an amazing Black Friday Sale and I’m super happy to be participating in a Hop & Swap with some of the Baker’s Dozen.  We each created a set of tags, so we can swap.  Here’s what I made.

My tag features Penguin Pals with the 12 Days of Christmas Project Pantry (cardstock, ribbon, patterned paper), along with Tag Treats Die Cutswide eyelets (Cool Metal), Baker’s Twine (Ladybug and Limeade), and Viva Decor Pens (Paper Pen in Light Carmine Red and Pearl Pen in Cream.)

The image was stamped on TE Choice Snow White cardstock and punched with a 1″ circle punch.  I used various circle punches and dies to forn the layers and as you can see above I used a brad to attach all of the top layers to the bottom layer.  The top swings open to reveal the “to and from”.  I used these new Viva Decor pens to dot little “pearls” around the circles as well as to add a nice thick layer of glitter to the little penguin’s hat.  These pens are quite easy to use as they have a nice even flow to them.  It takes less than an hour for the “pearls” to totally dry.  The pearl pens have a really nice pearly finish and the paper pens have more of a glossy look.  You’ll definitley want to add a couple of these to your cart when your shopping the TE sale!

After you’ve hopped around and seen all the tags in the hop, I bet you’re going to want to create some of your own!  Taylor has put together some great little kits – Tags & Tag-a-longs – to make it super easy!  These will be great for Christmas, but you might also want to think ahead to Valentine’s Day (that pink pack is calling my name!), Easter, and birthdays.  Once you start playing with tags, you’ll be addicted! Of course you can also order the items separately.  The Tag Treats Die Cuts come in sets of 10 in your choice of 40 colors.

Now let’s check out the rest of the Hop!
