Hi everyone! I hope you had a nice weekend! Our snow has almost disappeared and instead we got some autumn back again, with sunny weather.
At the Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge this week we have a Trio of Something theme. Lots of options for this one: trio of products, trio of colours, trio of cards, etc.
I made the tags for my December Countdown Calendar, which will later go into my December journal as journaling tags. Each day, I take one tag off the calendar, write my journaling and tuck it into the journal. I really like the December Daily concept by Ali Edwards and have been doing it for five years now. I made the burlap panel for the calendar last year, you can find that tutorial here. So this year, all I needed to do was die cut, colour and stamp the tags. I went with a different colour combo for my tags, a trio of Distress Inks: Wilted Violet, Cracked Pistachio and Blueprint Sketch. I made a video showing my process, and I will share another video for the album itself once it is done.
Here's the video, you can also click to watch it on YouTube. I am not showing you all the tags, since that would make for a too long video, but walk you through the process of creating some of the tags.
Here are all the tags together. They all look different, but use the same colours ink and some repeated stamps, for unity. The stamps are by Tim Holtz.
On Christmas Eve, I always use a Santa stamp, since that is when Santa comes knocking on the door in Sweden. He delivers the presents himself and doesn't come down the chimney to leave them at the tree.
