25 Days of Christmas Tags - Day 1


This is my third year of participating - I really enjoyed it last year and the year before!
 And when it came to Christmas, I had more than enough tags made!!

It is hosted by Tracey McNeely and you will find the main hop post here
She works really hard to organise this hop and secures many sponsors!

Day 1 sponsor is Sunny Studio 

This year I am trying to get started on the first day so I am not on catch up!! 
Each day I will CASE or be inspired by at least one tag...!
Here is my first tag...

This year I bought a packet of tags (Ranger) to get me started... so I didn't have to cut a tag for this one!

I was inspired by Cheryl Knutti on Day One illustrated here:

Here is my version:

  1. I used a Ranger cream tag as my base
  2. I added the foliage and pine cone die cuts from Tim Holtz Festive Greens.
  3. The stamp 'Just for You' is from Happy Little Stampers, stamped directly on the tag with black Versafine.
  4. Finally I added the ribbon, decorated with a bow.

I will link this to the main hop post

Happy Crafting!


  1. Beautiful tags, love the pine cone and branches die cuts, hugs, Lori m

  2. Absolutely gorgeous looking tag! I really love that red bow on it too!

  3. Susan, I love those great pine cones! This tag is cool!

  4. Oh, I love how you were inspired! Using the pine cone dies adds such fantastic dimension to your card, too. Next year, I just might start with precut tags. That was a great time-saving idea!

  5. I like how you did the bow on your tag it's really pretty

  6. Love your tag but that bow!!! How did you tie it? I can barely tie a simple bow!

  7. Pretty tag! I was inspired by the same tag!
