lock & key and tag-its #11

introducing tag-its #11

Hi everyone! Welcome to day 1 of the Papertrey Ink December release countdown. My craft area is still in full Christmas swing with crafting for the holidays, but it has been nice to sit down with something with a different theme. There will be a lot of love this month, along with some other fun things too!

This month my new stamp set is the eleventh in the Tag-its series. It's hard to believe that we are almost to the end of this fun little collection. This month this circle frame has a heart shaped center and the frame also has a full bleed so that when punched or die cut with a 1 3/4" circle punch the pattern on the frame goes all the way to the edge of your circle shape. Tag-its #11 retails for $5.

All of the new stamp sets and products that I am sharing today will be available to purchase December 15th, 10PM EST, at Papertrey Ink.


Here's a sweet little card duo. I used 2 of the new border dies that are debuting this month that Nichole will be sharing more about as the countdown goes on through the next few days. I put together a color combination that is very pastelly: Spring Moss, Aqua Mist, and Sweet Blush.


It's a little hard to tell in the picture, but the heart frame is covered in glitter. I stamped the frame onto white cardstock with Spring Moss ink and then ran the image face down through my Xyron sticker machine (I just got a 2 1/2" width one and am loving this little bit bigger size) so that the adhesive applies to the actual stamped image. Before you remove the paper backing, punch out the frame with a 1 3/4" circle punch. I placed the small heart where I wanted it on the frame image before I pressed the circle shape into the glitter. 


Everyday of the countdown, there are always lot of sneak peek projects to see: today Nichole and Betsy are sharing projects made with Tremendous Treats Valentine and Think Big Favorites #11, Danielle, along with Nichole, are sharing projects created with the new Made With Snow Mini set. Beth, Lisa, and Melissa will all be sharing projects made with their new sets too.

Thank you so much for stopping by today - see you for more tomorrow!
