Some Simple Tags

After a little hiatus, I dove back into my December Daily yesterday. I'm determined to finish this one even though I've got a few gaps where I forgot to take a photo or write any notes. I will share some photos over the weekend but will refrain from torturing you with each and every page - since they are not all show-stoppers. I know you've looked at a lot of December Dailies by now!

I also made a few gift tags yesterday. Have a few events coming up for people who expect craftiness from me so I couldn't disappoint. Didn't have the luxury of time so I kept them on the simple side. For this birthday gift tag, I used some SRM stickers - love that big formal font:
materials: patterned paper: Studio Calico; stickers: SRM, tape: American Crafts; string: Pink Paislee

Here's another that will head out on New Years Eve. I picked up these cute maple veneer tags at Paper Source in Princeton last week. (I could have spent the entire day and an entire paycheck in that store - It's a good thing I live an hour away from that place!) I learned that yes, you can heat emboss onto wood veneer:
materials: veneer tag: Paper Source; sticker: SRM; snowflake stamp: Studio Calico; string: Martha Stewart; embossing powder: Stampin Up' staple: Tim Holtz; ribbon: October Afternoon

And one last one - for a little 'thank you' gift. Again, loving that big formal script font on the sticker:

materials: veneer tag: Paper Source; sticker SRM: ribbon, heart button: Pebbles, Inc.; pin: Tim Holtz

Tomorrow I'll have a Pebbles, Inc page to share then it's time to get ready for the last weekend of the holiday season. Even though I detest NYE, we always wind up going out every year to my in-laws, then usually have people over on New Years Day. Ugh, NYE, blech!

Any other NYE haters out there? I know I can't be the only one...

What beautiful tags, I love the wood veneer! Not such a big fan of New Year's Eve myself. I must be getting too old, I don't like the crowds, the noise, haha!

Loving the look of the SRM & venner tags so much, Val-these are all fabulous! We always stay in on NYE, althought this year the 4 of us (DH is away working) might do a bowling outing.
