Scraps to Treasures Tag Swap Hop!



Welcome to the Scraps to Treasures Christmas Tag swap hop.  Yep you read that right, it's a hop with a swap LOL and as blog candy we are offering you a set of these adorable tags just for commenting on each blog in the hop!  If you have gotten here from Robin's blog, you're going in the right direction.  If not please start with a hop hostess this month Ellen.

So this using scraps is getting easier actually, I grabbed ONE (yes I have more then one) scrap box and started sorting looking for just Christmas paper, 


while I was at it I also pulled out all my solid paper and sorted that, now my scrap box will actually close LOL

So after all that sorting I was able to start on my tags.  Using my gypsy (so I learned with scraps it's probably easier to just use the Cricut straight out).  Using TTBM I cut both the tag and the shadow just grabbing papers that matched.







The Santa chick stamp and star are from Denami Designs
The "To-From" (on the back) is from My Pink Stamper Christmas Wishes
Of course the paper is from my scrap pile - various companies

Thanks for stopping by and happy scrappin'    Make sure you continue on your way by visiting Lucy's fabulous blog next!.

wow Liz - like your scrap box idea - I have a few of those but I was trying to get all of my papers organized and I think just having those scrap boxes it the best thing to do now - no more organizing for me - give me more time to craft - love that frizzy hair graphic on your blog! So cool --I am a follower - thanks for the hop! Have a great week! Gail

I love the hook part, actually they are very cool. Using scraps can be very fun, because you don't have to worry about destroying a nice sheet of paper, it's already a scrap. I think they are awesome.
