Day 25 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2021

Hi everyone!

As Tracey McNeely isn’t running her 25 Days of Christmas Tags event this year, I have created my own event using 25 days from Tracey’s event posts over the last decade, as I explained in this post.

Day 25’s inspiration is Day 18, 2017. Here’s the tag I made then!

I love Avery Elle, but I also really wanted to finish off my tags quickly! So I chose Brianna’s tag as inspiration for my design but replaced the foliage with Avery Elle snowflakes!

And that concludes my own tag challenge this year. While I really missed Tracey’s event, I was so grateful that she has so much inspiration from the past decade and I loved how her style evolved as the challenge got bigger and bigger. The only downside for me really was that I started too late and so this challenge really cut into my December crafting. I will certainly try to start on 1 November next year!

Thanks for stopping by!

Day 24 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2021

Hi everyone!

As Tracey McNeely isn’t running her 25 Days of Christmas Tags event this year, I have created my own event using 25 days from Tracey’s event posts over the last decade, as I explained in this post.

Day 24’s inspiration is Day 4, 2020. Newton’s Nook Day! Here’s what I created in 2020.

I wanted to do ‘something different’ for this tag as it felt like I’d stamped and coloured quite a few images during the tag challenge! So I chose Andrea’s bold tag as my inspiration. I used a Newton’s Nook stencil and some silver luna paste. Very happy with how that turned out! Embellishing the tag was much more challenging! First of all I added some pine springs but they didn’t look right… In the end, I used an older Hero Arts wood-mounted stamp embossed in teal glitter powder plus a glittery Simon Says Stamp die cut!

Day 23 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2021

Hi everyone!

As Tracey McNeely isn’t running her 25 Days of Christmas Tags event this year, I have created my own event using 25 days from Tracey’s event posts over the last decade, as I explained in this post.

Day 23’s inspiration is Day 18, 2020. Here’s the tag I made then!

This time, one of my favourite cardmakers, Rosemary, provided my inspiration!

I used dies from The Greetery’s Pine Bough Botanicuts set plus their wood slices. I just love those pine cones!

Day 22 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2021

Hi everyone!

As Tracey McNeely isn’t running her 25 Days of Christmas Tags event this year, I have created my own event using 25 days from Tracey’s event posts over the last decade, as I explained in this post.

Day 22’s inspiration is Day 19, 2012. As I’ve mentioned before, Tracey’s style was super CAS back in the day – which I love! The tag she created was super simple and I went with my own take on super simple – a single die cut image! This die from Simon Says Stamp.

Day 21 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2021

Hi everyone!

As Tracey McNeely isn’t running her 25 Days of Christmas Tags event this year, I have created my own event using 25 days from Tracey’s event posts over the last decade, as I explained in this post.

Day 21’s inspiration is Day 13, 2018. Here’s the tag¬†I created then.

I was inspired by Kim’s colourful fairy lights and used a die set from Marianne Designs for my tag. It took a while to stick all those little glitter pieces and get them in an order where two of the same colours weren’t too close!

The sentiment is by Technique Tuesday.

Day 20 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2021

Hi everyone!

As Tracey McNeely isn’t running her 25 Days of Christmas Tags event this year, I have created my own event using 25 days from Tracey’s event posts over the last decade, as I explained in this post.

Day 20’s inspiration is Day 21, 2011. Oh my goodness! I just adore all those little reindeers in Tracey’s tag! Aren’t they aadorable?!

I’m still very puzzled as I’m sure I had a little reindeer family stamp, which would have been perfect for today’s tag, but I can’t seem to find it! So instead I use a fun stamp set that I picked up during one of my trips to the US- it’s called Reindeer Fun and it’s by TPC Studio
