PTI October Blog Hop

Note: this is my second post for the day. 
To see my post for Fresh Squeezed Stamps, please scroll down.

It's the 25th, which means it's time for the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop.

This month's challenge is tags.


We were challenged to make a quick set of five gift tags.

I decided to use my new Fancy Flakes die as the base for my tags,
on which I layered some LL:ovals 2.25" diecuts over top.


For each tag, I used a "to" & "from" stamps from PTI's To You From Me stamp set.
But, after that, I tried to use different Christmas sets for each one.


Here I stamped some snowflakes from In the Meadow.


I stamped my snowflakes and ski from Two Feet Deep.


For this one, I stamped my branches and berries from Love Lives Here: Holiday.
The bird is from Christmas Friends, which I stamped and then cut out by hand.


I stamped the little car and Christmas tree from my brand new City Scene stamp set.

And here's my last tag....


My mom gives me money each fall to purchase our families Christmas gifts from her.
Last weekend, I went to Minneapolis with my BFF and other ladies from our church for the
Women of Faith Conference.
We also may have done a little shopping in Albertville and at the Mall of America.
You know, just a little. ;)
I managed to find three things I really loved.... so I wrapped them up, so I wouldn't be tempted to use them before December 25th. LOL!

On this tag, I used Love Lives Here: Holiday.

And lastly, here's the other package I wrapped....


For our family gift exchange, I got my brother-in-law, Dale.
Shhh, don't tell, though. It's suppose to be a secret! ;)

He likes to cross-country ski, so I thought the Two Feet Deep tag was a perfect fit for him.

Thanks for looking!

Your stack of presents with that tag is so darn pretty! I have to ask ... is that the ribbon from Red Ribbon week at school?! My two boys came home with that this week and all I could think about was how many yards of that wonderful, wide, grosgrain ribbon they passed out, and who I could call afterwards to see if they still wanted it : )
