I came across a new challenge blog called City Crafter Challenge Blog. I love the simple challenges, so I jumped right in! The theme for this week is "Make the Cut." I kept my oversized tag very simple since I'm working 10 hr days lately. This bird stamp is brand new from the Micheal's $1.50 spot and I fussy cut the letter in it's mouth and popped it up. I used a few scraps from my stash and here is what I came up with...
Other supplies: Tim Holtz diecut clock; Maya Road flower
I just wanted to share two Christmas Cards with you before it's too late...
Christmas is coming so fast!
My first card is Webster's Pages meets K & Company. The base of the card is Websters Pages Botanical Collection and the cute girl and transparency are from K & Co Brenda Walton Collection. I loved layering these two together. I used my exacto knife to open the door in the patterned paper...
So that I could hide Santa!
My next card doesn't scream Christmas but I wanted to use non-traditional items to make a Christmas card. The papers are from The Paper Studio, the transparency and bird image are both 7 Gypsies, and the stamp is Studio G.
I received this amazing Christmas stocking and some great gifts from Terri during our stocking swap hosted by the Little Pink Studio's blog. I am very late on posting my photos but my family and I are really enjoying all of the wonderful things she took the time to make herself.
I will probably have this stocking in the same spot well into the new year! She also made me some really cool ornaments and hooked me up with a ton of goodies that I've already started using.
This vintage inspired banner she made hangs wonderfully at the
entrance to my desk area. I admire it everyday!
This was an awesome swap. Please check out her blog!
Hello there...it's time for day tag #4! This tag was super simple to make. I only used four items to make it! I'm really feeling black lately so I picked out some black rosette trim I got from Joann's a while back and placed it in the center added bling, two skeleton leaves from Wild Orchid Crafts, a Tim Holtz ticket and I was done!
It's day three and here is my next tag! I used my Oxford Impressions stamps on a piece of burlap and I ended up with a nice subtle image. I then layered my trims and a big flower from Recollections. The tiny rose on the top is from Wild Orchid Crafts. This was a very simple tag to create.
Here is the tag for day two! This tag reminds me of the ballet. I really enjoy working with these soft simple colors. The bingo card in the background is cut from Tim Holtz Lost and Found paper pad. The black trim and hand charm are both from Joann's.
I bunched up some pink tulle in a tiny ball and gently unravelled it to create an abstract flower. I then added bling behind the tulle for some shine!
I really appreciate all your awesome comments! If you try any of the tags please let me know in the comments so we can all see!

My inspiration for these tags come from the Advent Tags from the 2GypsyGirls Blog. I love the neutral colors and vintage style so I wanted to give them a try with my own twist.
I started with a tea dyed tag and torn patterned paper from K & Co Brenda Walton paper pad. I stamped the background and the tread spool with stamps from Oxford Impressions "Sewing Notions" collection. I added the crochet butterfly from Wild Orchid Crafts, trims and the cutest spool charm from my stash.
