We hosted a Christmas Tags Swap and the artwork has been swapped out (and photos posted to the Gallery) — and the prize winner announced!
Christmas Tags Swap! Adorable tags (in pockets) that you can use as ornaments, tags for holiday gifts, or create a tag for each day of the month as an impromptu advent calendar. Paint, mist, distress, glitter, add wreaths, Santas, elves, trees, snow, use stencils, or whatever tickles your muse’s fancy!
Each of your Christmas Tags must include an Alpha Stamps rubber stamp or collage sheet image (and your tags should be in decorated pockets, too).
If you're a kit subscriber, your November 2015 kit already has everything you need to participate in this swap (except for postage — see below)! If you'd like to play and are not a subscriber, you can buy a kit (along with return postage to send artwork from other swappers back to you) below on this very page!
Check out the Victorian Christmas Tags Kit page and the November 1st newsletter for oodles of new (and On Sale!) supplies as inspiration.
And beside the cute samples on this page, more colorful creations by the Design Team (and all the swap participants artwork) are in the Gallery!
Hey, and beside those new items, ALL of the Christmas Collage Sheets are On Sale!
Make THREE embellished Christmas Tags in Pockets and receive 3 in return — each by different artists! You can sign up ONCE, one set of THREE tags in pockets is the maximum per person.
Sign up by Monday, November 16th. (
Sign up below; the cost includes postage to send artwork from other swappers back to you. AND you'll also receive a little gift baggie of festive bits to get you started with your decorating!)
Artwork must be postmarked to our swap hostess, Design Team Member Caroline Ouzts-Hay, no later than Monday, December 7th (2015).
Specs about where to send your swap art and tips on packing will be mailed to you with your Victorian Christmas Tags Kit (or will be emailed if you sign up and are already a kit subscriber).
The tags above are by Design Team Member Rhonda Secrist Thomas.
The samples below are by Design Team Member Kristin Batsel. More info about Kristin's artwork is in the November 1st newsletter.
