Festive Friday!

Hello everyone and welcome!  I sure hope you are having a Festive Friday!
As you may already know, I am one of the designers over at My Cricut Craft Room and I love posting on Fridays.  Festive Friday is all about creating something with a holiday or party in know..something to celebrate!  Posting on Fridays has really helped get me moving on my Christmas cards and tags for this year. 

I love pretty packages at Christmas.  I love the gorgeous wrapping paper that is available and I love making big, loopy bows from wide ribbon and tulle.  I also love being able to finish up my wrapped gift with a special tag that adds just a bit more sparkle and shine. Today I would like to share with you two new tags to add to my gift wrap selection this year...

I started with plain Manila tags and covered them with cute cardstock from K&Company's Secret Santa paper stack.  I found the white "fur" in the Christmas scrapping section at Hobby Lobby.  I think it adds a nice touch, but it is really, really messy!  Bits of fluff are still floating around my craft corner!

The Christmas tree is from Winter Frolic and is cut at 4.5 inches.  I inked up the edges and used pink gems for ornaments.  The star is covered in Tinsel glitter from Martha Stewart.

The stocking is cut from Doodlecharms at 3 inches.  The red portion is embossed with the Candy Cane embossing folder and the white parts are covered in Tinsel glitter by Martha Stewart.  The mat was created using Spellbinders' Lacy Ovals (green layer) and Classic Ovals (white layer) dies. The sentiment is from the Christmas Wishes stamp set by Pink By Design.

For the back of my tags, I used the Eyelet Circles and Labels 11 dies from Spellbinders.  The "to and from" sentiments are from the Christmas Wishes stamp set by Pink By Design.

That's my Festive Friday project for today! Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have enjoyed your visit.  Don't forget to stop by My Cricut Craft Room to see what our talented design team has to share with you!

Until next time,


  1. Your tags are adorable. I love the white "fur"!

  2. These are so cute...I love the pink! I used that white fur once...good gracious, when you cut it, it's like blowing a dandelion seedhead into your craft room. But, definitely the end result makes picking fluff out of your hair worth it. I love the paper you used on these. Such fun!
