Spa Shaker Tag

Good Morning Krafty Friends…..

Before I post my project, I have a secret I can finally let out of the bag.  I was chosen as one of the 28 guest designers for Jaded Blossom in the month of December.  I can’t wait to share my project with everyone on my day!

My daughter is going to a birthday party today. To go along with her gift from bath and body works, we made a special tag to wrap around the mason jar she decorated.

Here’s our tag:

The supplies we used are:

JB- Treat Tag Die, Pamper Yourself, Card Mat Dies, and Halloween Dies
Copic markers- I colored the face and head wrap and my daughter colored the rest (didn’t she go a great job?)
Various Papers from different stacks

We are so happy with the way our tag came out.  I hope her friend likes it as much as we do!

Krafty Hugs,

Now, prepare to be spooked!

Here is what I made:

      I was inspired by the rosette Christmas wreath in the Close To My Heart catalog.  I used several cricut cartridges to create my Halloween version.  I must admit, it has been over a year since I played with my cricut.  After purchasing my silhouette, my E2 just sat there and collected dust.  I pondered selling it a few times, but boy am I glad I didn't!  I forgot what fun my cricut is.  I used CTMH paper and I have to tell you it cuts like butter.  I thought the silhouette cut better, but it turns out the right paper is all I needed in the cricut.  I will be using my cricut a lot more and am debating if I want to take the plunge and invest in the explore. 

 Cricut cartridges I used:
Ribbons & Rosettes
Mini Monsters
Holiday Cakes
Martha Stewart Crafts seasonal cake art

CTMH paper I used:
 Scaredy Cat Paper Packet
Paper Fundamentals Enchantment Assortment
