Holiday Place Setting Tags...

Yesterday I was a part of an Instagram Hop for the 25 Days of Christmas Tags.  Head on over to IG and follow me @laurie_willison and you can follow and comment to win prizes.  

I thought I would stop in here and share my projects.  These are SO very easy to make!  I love to personalize my table for the holidays and there are 2 products from Concord and 9th that will help you do just that!

To start, I grabbed some mini grapevine wreaths from Hobby Lobby or you can get them from Amazon....links below in my supply list.  

You can grab any tag you have for these place setting tags.  I took the Sophisticated Script set and stamped each of my friends names....


I took a small piece of red and white striped washi and wrapped the top of the tags.  


Next, I stacked the tags up and used my Crop-o-Dile to cut holes in the stack of tags.  


Next, I cut some boughs from the Take A Bough die set.  This die set is SO much fun because you can create your own paper tree.  Or in this case, it just adds a little greenery to the place setting.  


To finish off the tags, I tied the tag, the boughs and a silver bell to the grapevine wreath with some Lawn Fawn Glitter Twine.  


Seriously these are just super easy and quick and paired with a fun napkin, your holiday table is sure to look festive!  

Don't forget to stop on over to Instagram and find me.... @laurie_willison and follow and comment for a chance to win!  There are lots of prizes to be given away!  

So glad you stopped in today! Thanks for coming by!

Misc: Pretty Pink Post Silver Bells

MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge...

Good morning!  It is time for another weekly Wednesday sketch over at My Favorite Things.  Today's sketch is right up my alley....clean and simple!  First off, here is my card....


I used the Square Peek-a-boo Window in the background and then filled it with a little kraft polka dot paper from the Dots and Stripes Neutral pack.  Next, I added a vellum banner and sentiment to the front of the card.  Last, I popped up those adorable coffee cups on foam tape.  The coffee sets from this latest release called, Coffee Break and Coffee Date, are so fun and so versatile!

Here is this week's sketch....

Head on over to the MFT Blog to see more sketch inspiration this week.  So glad you stopped in!

MFT Release Replay...

Hello there!  I am stopping in today with a card for the November MFT Release Replay.  One of the newest Die-namics this month is called Linked Chain Circle Frames.  Its is beautiful and so full of possibilities!  Today I used the middle circle frame and did a little die cutting with MFT's Gold Sparkle Card Stock....if you don't have any of this glittery need some!  :)


First, I did a light watercolor wash in the background.  I added the chain frame in the gold glitter card stock.  Next, I added in a few of the Fab Foliage leaves in green card stock.  To finish off the card front, I added in the Die-namics Joy in red cardstock, after doing a little dark red ink blending along the bottom.  For a tiny bit of bling, I added in some Clear Droplets.

Check out the MFT Blog for more November Release inspiration.  Thanks for stopping in today. Hope you have a great day!

MFT Countdown Day 1...

Today is the last day of the MFT November countdown!  I have one last card to share today using an image from the new set, New Best Friend and "Let's Cuddle", the free stamp with purchase this month.  

MFT November Release
This card was super easy to make.  I scored the background using my Scor-buddy every 1/2".  Then I cut a stitched panel using the Stitched Rectangle STAX.  I stamped the "Let's cuddle" in black ink and popped the panel up on foam tape.  Last, I colored that adorable little gal and her kitten using Copics.  I added her to the card with a little bit more foam tape and that's it!  

Check out the MFT blog for more details on the free stamp this month.  Tomorrow is the day!  Everything will be available at 8pm CST for purchase over at MFT.  So glad you stopped in today!  Will be back tomorrow with one more card to share at product release time.  :)

Have a great day!
