It's time for the Paper Issues and Reminisce blog hop.. but first here are a couple of cards I made using the gorgeous 'here comes Santa' collection from Reminisce..
and thanks to Reminisce..2 lucky scrappers could win this fabulous prize! As you can see it's just perfect for scrapping all of your Christmas layouts..with plenty left over for handmade cards and gift tags!
I have a little tutorial up at the Citrus Twist blog this week..
I'll post the steps below in case you might like to create something similar using tags, diecuts and some foam thickers :)
first up here are the items I used from this month's 'blue sky' kit..you'll also need a fine paintbrush, jar of water, a white card and adhesives..
step 1: using the Prima ink from the kit, dip a thinnish paint brush in a little water first then dab it a few times onto the ink pad.. carefully paint the reinforcement ring on the tag..
step 2: ink the edges of a diecut heart shape and MME word sticker..
step 3: ink both the 'x's' (and give them about 10 minutes or so to dry before picking them up)
step 4: cut and stick down a piece of patterned paper to fit your card.. then the large tag on a slight angle
step 6: add the small tag on the opposite angle..
step 7: add the 'smile' and heart diecuts with the words sticker on top..
step 8: add the foam thickers to finish..

here's a layout using the gorgeous July Nook kit.. I didn't plan on it ending up quite this minimalist but once I got to this point, didn't think it needed anything else..
and a card for a very sweet friend using the same kit..just love this little MME banner..
