Merry and Bright Tag - Day 3

Welcome to Day 3 of the 12 Days of Holiday Inspiration Blog Event brought to you by "The Inspiration Crew"! We’re just a group of online crafty blog friends who love being creative. This time we're doing a 12-day event to provide you with tons of Holiday Inspiration.

We're making crafty projects using products we like and some of us are even offering prizes! Check each blog and the information there for what prizes are being offered and when the winners will be announced on that blog.

At the bottom of this post is a list of all the crafty ladies participating in this event. Be sure to visit all the blogs each day for loads of fun Holiday craft ideas.

For the past few years I have really gotten into Ellen Hutson's 12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist! It's something I look forward to every year, and Julie Ebersole's first tag did not disappoint! I immediately created my own tag that was heavily inspired by Julie's!

I used my cheapy watercolors in every shade of pink to paint on the tag (which I hand cut from Ranger watercolor paper). I used gold embossing powder for the sentiment (Papertrey Ink) and the circle around the top. The gold stars are rub ons from Studio Calico that I think I've had for 3 years... glad to finally put them to good use! Finally I die cut the leaves from Top Dog Dies and added them to the tag with that little birdie veneer :)

PRIZES! I NEED TO GET RID OF ALL THIS STUFF IN THAT PHOTO! SOME OF IT CAN BE YOURS! As part of the 12 Days of Holiday Inspiration Event, I will be giving away a SWAG BOX of fun goodies to a lucky commenter! Comment on all 12 days to increase you chance of winning. And I PROMISE it will be PACKED with crafty goodness... I'm in the holiday giving spirit after all! ;)
