One of the things I enjoy making at Christmas time,
more than anything else
is gift tags...but not just plain jane tags.
I think all these tags qualify for CAS until you start
adding embellishments, which I love to do!
Die cut tags using Spellbinders Labels Four,

Memory Box and K&Co.

vintage-feel to paper projects.
Hope you enjoyed these fun little projects!
One more thing....
Monique Hanson, my design team-mate at The Twinery
and author of the blog, For the Love of Paper, honored
me with a sweet blog award today.
I thank her for thinking of me and I appreciate her
being a follower here at The Open Window.
I am going to 'cop out' a bit on the sharing the
personal things that most awards require, but only
because I just shared some pretty fun and in some
cases, surprising things in my interview with Ippity.
So if you have a moment, I would love if you
would click here and check out some fun facts
about Julie Ranae.
I didn't 'cop out' completely....Thanks again Monique!
