Welcome to the November Diva Inspirations Blog Hop! The fabulous Diva Inspirations team is here to start your month off right with a little Verve inspiration! I decided to get started on some Christmas tags...ok, so maybe I'm a little behind. Has anyone out there NOT started on Christmas/Holiday stuff yet? Please don't tell me I'm alone! Here's what I worked on:


We just got these Kraft Tags in at Googly Eyes for one of my upcoming classes, and I snatched a few of them up to play with. I got out my Poinsettia Christmas and Ornamental Christmas sets...two of my favorites! Here's a closeup of each tag:






Very simple and easy...I think it took me longer to cut out 5 Poinsettias than it did to finish all three tags! I loved this pattern from Basic Grey's Picadilly 6x6 Paper Pad, so I added it to each tag, as well as a little Houndstooth digital paper from Crystal Wilkerson. The flowers were stamped, cut out, and then covered with Stardust Stickles, Coarse Glitter, and finished off with Liquid Pearls in the centers. You know I gotta have some bling! These will look great attached to Christmas Gifts, I think.
