Getting a wee bit of a head start...

On my Christmas tags.  (I know Tracy, it's before December, and I'm sorry about that.  Ha!) 

I've been wanting to make some faux corrugated Kraft embellishments for awhile now.  Several months ago Dawn McVey did THIS POST and I thought, "ooohhh, love!  I'm so going to do that!"  I even wrote it down on my to do list.  But weeks passed and I never got to it.  Fast forward to October and THIS POST over at Just Jingle and I fell in love AGAIN!  I suddenly remembered my little Kraft embellishments I wanted to make!  Jingle even inspired Mary Pat with THIS CARD SET.  So much inspiration going on, I don't know what to do with myself!

When I first thought about working on these I was going to make simple shapes like butterflies, clouds, swirls, etc.  But since I'm a procrastinator and it's now MONTHS later and we're quickly approaching Christmas, I thought I would get a jump start on my Christmas tags.

Here's my weapon :)

I used my Doodlecharms and Christmas Cheer cartridge with my Cricut and cut out multiple Christmasy shapes at 2".  I used the SHADOW and BLACKOUT features.  Look at those reindeer.  Now you tell me, isn't the corrugated one MUCH cuter?  I LOVE him!!!  :)

And how about these cuties?  Too much.  I can't wait to make some fun tags to put these on.

And a few more for good measure.

Have a wonderful Thursday and I'll see you tomorrow!  Thanks for popping by today!

  6. Yes, the corrugated look does make a big difference!

  7. Yes, I think I can agree that, while plain kraft is awesome, these shapes do look super cool crinkled up. I never had one of those tools, but darned if I'm not thinking about one..... Such an enabler! Now, you totally need to sprinkle some white mist on these. :)

  8. LOL, your to funny Becky.
    I do have a couple Christmas cards to share, but I am really trying to wait until December to share :) Actually the cards were make in August, lol.
    As for your corrigated tags....toooo CUTE. I think I may have to try this. But I only have the wavy crimper.

  9. The corrugated ones are much cuter! I can't wait to see the finished product!
