Now onto my project. I have been making lots of shaker tags lately. They are so much fun, and very festive, perfect for the upcoming holiday season.


What I love about the new December To Remember stamp set is that is very versatile and can be used on scrapbook pages, as well as cards, gift wrapping, home decor projects, etc. The possibilities are endless.

4x6 December to Remember

I started by heat-embossing the sentiments onto patterned paper from the Reflection Scrapbook Collection. I used the new Altenew Embossing Ink and Pure White Embossing Powder. I then backed my panel with white cardstock and cut it into a tag shape. I created the window for my shaker with the Night Before Christmas tree die, which I also used to cut the foam that went in between the layers. Finally, I cut a star with the Halftone Stars Nesting die set and made it shiny with a clear Wink of Stella brush pen.


To finish off the tag, I stamped a banner from the Wood Pallet Background and added a sentiment from the Night Before Christmas stamp set. Everything was heat-embossed with Antique Silver embossing powder.


That’s all for today, friends. I hope you have found some inspiration in this post. Don’t forget to leave a comment for a chance to win. You next stop is the wonderful Lydia Evans.

Thank you for stopping by! Have a lovely day!

  1. FABULOUS tag!
    LOVE how you created your own sentiment filled patterned paper, having a tree shaker is so festive too! … I NEED to make some shaker tags NOW 🙂


  2. Ooo, I haven’t seen many tags, and I love how the more you look at this, the more details become apparent. I always enjoy a good typography background, so I love how you did that, plus the die cuts, plus the shaker, plus the banner. It just keeps going! Thanks for sharing your creativity.


  3. Beautiful tags! I love that you made a Christmas tree out of the oval labels, so crafty! All your tags are so intricate and are pieces of art. Thanks for the inspiration!
