Take Time To Stop and Smell the Embossing Powder

I’ve been in the middle of a big project. It’s exciting. It’s nothing ‘creative’ in the ‘buy me’ sense, but it’s huge and thrilling, nonetheless.

Yesterday I decided that I needed to stop what I was doing and create something. I was having too many choices thrown at me and the decision making was overwhelming.

I decided I needed to do something simply.

I had purchased these tags from Thatch and Thistle on Etsy and they were screaming at me to make some Christmas tags!


With the help of some KBS stamp combos and some American Crafts embossing powder, I made these up in no time!


For the first tag, I used the bottom of the 25/Christmas stamp and combined it with the tree–both from Twinkle. Loved the simplicity of how it came together. And how perfect does HO HO HO (Believe) and Be Merry (Holiday Magic) go together? Then I took a bigger star from Wanderlust and combined with with Twinkle.


simplistic perfection.

Now back to the big task at hand…

Can someone else come make some decisions for me? ;)
