Holiday Tags CTC#99

Apparently Christmas is fast approaching! All I can say is, "Thank goodness we don't have to celebrate Halloween and Thanksgiving in Australia, or there just wouldn't be enough time to fit Christmas in!!! We are having a VERY long school term in Victoria: 11 weeks and 2 days, when the optimum time is meant to be 10 weeks. It won't only be the teaching staff that are tired and towie, the kids will be uncontrollable by the last few weeks.

You may have just hopped from my friend Kathryn's blog, but if you started here with me, make sure you go full circle for your weekly dose of inspiration. This week at CASE-ing The Catty we are focusing on some tags. I took a look through the holiday catalogue, and decided that tags made with the jar stamps and framelits would be super cute.

After cutting a couple of strips of extra thick Whisper White card, I stamped the jar shape from Jar Of Cheer. There are now three different stamp sets that co-ordinate with the Jar Framelits. The first one was Jar of Love in the Annual catalogue, Jar of Cheer and Jar of Haunts in the Holiday Catalogue. You can still save 10% if you bundle and save the Jar of Love stamps with Everyday Jars Framelits. 

Once the jars were die cut, I began stamping out the sentiment. Next, it was time to tackle the lids and so far I have made them with the Gold and Bronze foil paper, and I think silver may just get a look in too. I CASE-d the jar from the Christmas card on page 25 of the Holiday Catalogue, but I don't have the Pretty Pines framelits, so I improvised and used a small leaf from Jar of Love.

If you take another look at the top picture, you'll see that to and from is stamped on the back. This stamp is a handy little one from Merriest Wishes. The tags are finished off with a bow tied in Cherry Cobbler Bakers Twine. This comes packaged with a roll of Garden Green and Gold, so there is plenty of variety for all your Christmas crafting. If you'd like to shop for some crafting goodies, my online shop is open for you all day, everyday and when you use the Hostess code before checkout, (M7F6343W) you'll receive a little something from me in the post too.

We love it when you share your projects with us at CASE-ing the Catty. Just link up here.

Now it is time to hop along to see what clever Kelly  has shared on her blog.
