Hi everyone! Happy Friday! It’s time for another fun challenge over at Polkadoodles Craft Challenge and I’m super stoked to share my DT inspiration project for Week 50 – Anything Goes Challenge, an awesome Christmas tag, with a ton of layers, created with various elements from the Winnie Winterland Big Kahuna Digital Craft Download Bundle. I am in awe over all the stuff you get in these Big Kahuna download bundles! It’s just amazing… the creativity is never-ending and what a bang for your buck!

I’ve been about to burst at the seams to share this project! I love tags and I love lots of layers so this was right up my alley!


I started by fussy cutting all the elements I wanted to use, inked the edges and set them aside. I then grabbed a tag, covered it with pretty paper and inked the edges. Then the fun began… placing all the elements where I wanted them and adhering them. I layered loops of gold cording behind the focal image and added a small rhinestone to the center of each flower. I added a mini clothespin from my stash to the top of the focal image and then a piece of plaid Christmas ribbon through the tag hole tied with a small piece of the gold cording.


Here are a couple shots from different angles so you can see the dimension. I love how this turned out!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
