A break

Hi Friends!!!
Veronica stopping in to say Happy 2015! We are taking a short break from new items/kits until we move. We are in the process of de-cluttering and putting our home on the market. Which includes getting rid of great big piles of stuff!

This process needs all our attention at the moment and we hope to be back and better than before. I have a list of all the great things I have planned for this year,  my goal is to have new product by mid Feb. Until then, our shop will remain open with all our older beautiful products.See you SOON!!

xoxo, Albert, Veronica and the crazy kiddos

Buddy

Hello, there!  Jennie here with you once again and I am so excited to share a fun + festive page I created with the Christmas Cheer kit. I'm telling you, this kit exceeded all expectations I might have had -- I absolutely love every last bit of it!

Even more perfect than the bits and pieces that just never seem to end?  The fact that there are adorable elf themed embellishments.  It can really be hard to find the perfect ones if you look elsewhere.



As you can see from my page, awesome elf embellishments were exactly what I needed to create this fun page about our Elf On the Shelf, Buddy.

We love to see how you are using the awesome Christmas Cheer kit, plus how you use all of our Chic Tags products.  Link up your creations on our Facebook page!

Chic Tags | Favorite Products

Hi everyone, Diane here, sharing one of my go-to quick products for pulling together layouts and cards...pocket cards! Not only are they great for pocket scrapbooking, but they can speed up the process of traditional layout and card making too.

Today I'm sharing two cards using pocket cards from the Christmas Cheer exclusive kit.

 For this card I used the exclusive die cuts, acrylic stars and a pocket card. I love the traditional colors and the stars are amazing. One of my favorite products of the year!

 On this card I used the snowflake pocket card, layered over vellum and a pretty off white background. I simply added some rhinestones to the center of the snowflakes to dress it up.
When you are in need of a quick and easy card, don't overlook your stash of pocket cards...they are perfect for pulling together and fabulous card in a hurry!

Chic Tags Sequined Christmas Tree DIY Framed Gift

Hello everyone! Happy December! I today finds you in a happy or at least peaceful holiday spirit.
I am back to share with you a little DIY project I shared here on the blog back earlier this fall. But since many of you don't get to creating for the holidays until closer to the holidays (I totally get that!) I thought I'd share it with those of you who may have missed it the first go around.

The project centers around the awesome Chic Tags wood veneer sequins. I used spray mist to color them and glued them down to some scrap card stock and then trimmed around the perimeter of the tree.

For more details and explanations on Chic Tags products used, click here.

Have a safe and happy holiday season!
                                



Chic Tags Twelve Days of Christmas Cheer | Day #12

Hello and welcome to Day #12 of Chic Tags Twelve Days of Christmas! It's Mary Ann here with a layout I created using the Christmas Cheer Exclusive Kit and a few pieces of past kits too.

My cute little snowman from a recent shopping trip has sort of an "outdoorsy" look to him. I went with a monochromatic natural wood color scheme, along with bright Christmas red accents for my layout.
The wood veneer pieces go perfectly with the wood slice 3x4 card and flair button (both from the Halloween kit), and really make the red pop! I layered on the sweet snowman and my wish list die cuts, then added the red wood veneer stars. I just love those stars!!!

Well, we're just days away from Christmas. Is your to-do list getting smaller or larger as the days go by? Are you finding time to do any paper crafting??

Tags + Cards full of Christmas CHEER!


Hello, there friends!  It's Jennie and I'm super excited to share with you a little bit more fun using our exclusive Christmas Cheer kit!  

I knew I needed something awesome, something with flair!  I wanted to create a couple of cards for friends and a tag for some baked goods.  Nothing more festive and certainly nothing cuter than the Christmas Cheer kit!

First up, a card!  Perfect for anyone, really.  Very festive, fun and super simple to put together.


Say you need something with a little more pizazz -- something for your mother-in-law or maybe your boss!


Adding tags, acrylic pieces and wood veneer dresses up a card!

Last, but certainly not least for this kit is a tag!  I knew that my homemade pumpkin bread I give out every year needed a little bit of decorating.  A simple ribbon wasn't going to cut it.  The Christmas Cheer kit saves the day!


If you must know, I think that sweet little gingerbread girl steals the show!  (I used one of the 3x4 cards from the kit for the background of the tag.  Just trim it down and you've got some brilliant patterned paper!)

I hope you can see how easy and fun it can be to dress us your holidays with something handmade!  Stop by the store and check out all of the items, including the Christmas Cheer kit
