Christmas Gift Tag Swap 2013 – Video

Hello Crafty Friends,

Happy Saturday! I hope you are up for some Christmas Holiday Gift Tag or Card inspiration, because I have a video to share with you all of 15 tags I received in a Swap.

Several of the designers from She’s A Sassy Lady and The Bug Bytes participated in the 2013 Christmas Tag Swap this year and we were not disappointed! Just go grab a cup of coffee or some hot herbal tea and sit down in your comfy chair and watch this video of the 15 tags I received from some wonderful crafters!

Click HERE to see the video!

I’ll be back on Monday to share my Christmas tag in a video tutorial that was part of this swap! Enjoy and be inspired to create after you see what these fellow paper crafters came up with!

Blessings!

I encourage you to download the software and then go to the tutorial video sections and watch a video and then make a project using what you learned.

Watch as many video’s as you can and practice what you learned afterwards to make a project or at least an element for a current or future project.

Getting Creative Using Gypsy or CCR – Create Something New!

We are on vacation in Alaska and I want to share this card from last year. It’s one of my favorite things to do when I have time on my hands. Grab your Gypsy or sign into the Cricut Craft Room and make your very own die cut using simple shapes and the advanced features. Enjoy!

The cooler temperatures mean more hot tea for me and nothing is more appropriate for a general note card or thinking of you card than some stacked tea cups. I do not own a cartridge that has this image so I utilized my Gypsy and choose a cup from the Winter Frolic cartridge.

20121028-142409.jpg

After choosing my die cut and deciding on 2.75 inches for the size of the base of my cups, found the coordinating layer for this cut to start adding cups. These are sized at 2.75 inches.

Each cup was tilted using the tool on the Advance tab on the Gypsy. As I built the stack of the teacups I used the hide contour feature to hide the front layer of the teacup with the snow flake cut out. I used the weld feature for each layer as I worked on adding each additional cup.

I laid out my mat so that I could cut everything at one time.

Using the weld, tilting and hide contour features adds another level of creativity and endless design opportunities for cards and your scrapbook layouts.

These papers came from a stack from Hobby Lobby. My friend, Olivia and I split the stack and she has the cover so I can’t tell you the name of it. It has a lot of texture and varied designs on each sheet and I really like that for my cards.
