Snippety Christmas...

Hello there Friends

I was having a rummage through my Christmas Snippets box trying to clear out unloved items from there in order to pass to my neighbour for the local Brownies/Guides group.  I took some old cards that had been kept/passed to me and spent a day die cutting them as tags/shapes and clearing old papers, stickers etc that have not been used for some time. I did keep some for myself and made them into cards there and then ready to pop in my box.

This is just some of the tags I made..
And some larger ones.

I shall be linking these up with the Playground as there are lots 'n' lots of Snippets used here.   Why not join us?  We really are a friendly bunch and have been known to have Playground outings!!

As these are all Christmas cards I will join in with Crafty Hazelnut Challenge too!

Have a good week.

YAY! Nothing like a clear out of snippets and whatnots for a good old-fashioned tag sesh is there? The tags are all lovely and such a lot of variety.

Love the Crimble tree cards too!

Brilliant cards and tags Sam. The die cut trees are one of my very fave MB dies - much more versatile than I thought at first.

Looks like it could be 'Snippets' for the Teddy so far :)

Hugs, Di xx

You've been busy. These are so creative and inspirational - I particularly like the first card with the embossed backgrounds and that beautiful tree die (one of my favourites) - thanks for sharing these for my CHNC challenge extra for August - hope to see more of your festive crafting soon. x

Wow! You were really working hard. This look the cards and tags you have made and love the fact you upcycled to make them.
They will come in so handy this Christmas!
Have to say those last three large tags are so how you used the TH stamps with the gilded look on the 3rd tag and love the image of the Santa sleigh and reindeer on the other two!

We have been into the lake district each day sightseeing a different lake or even two each day.
I have been walking all around the villages and really enjoying popping in and out of the shops.

What a stunning die-cut that tree is - love it in the flowery paper, and beautiful layering on both those cards. What a fab array of tags too... Just seen over at Lesley's that it's only 19 weeks to Christmas - you're doing better than I am!

So much productivity, so much beautiful to feast my eyes upon. You know I love anything MBox, so I'm loving your tree cards. And how wonderful you were able to recycle your pretty cards from the past into such lovely tags. They are all just wonderful. TFS
