MCT Designer Challenge

I'm super excited to be hosting the Designer Challenge over at My Creative Time!  My challenge to you is to make winter holiday tags!  That could mean Christmas, Hanukkah, New Year's, etc.  Feel free to make one tag or even a set, like I did today! 

All of my tag shapes today were made with the MCT Tag Dies, and the patterned paper is from Simple Stories December Documented.  For this tag, I made a cute pocket using a die from Fun Pockets and filled it with ornaments made with the dies from Warm Holiday Fun.  I heat embossed my sentiment with silver embossing powder.  The first part of the sentiment is from Fun Pockets, and "Holiday Fun" is from Warm Holiday Fun.

For this sweet little tag, I used a Heart House Paper Clip from Simon Says Stamp along with my favorite little hearts from MCT's Stitched Heart Layering Dies.  The sentiment, which matches my little house perfectly, is from Mixed Holiday Sentiments

I dressed up my last tag with some fun hexagons made with the Stitched Hexy Dies.  The sentiment is another sweet one from Mixed Holiday Sentiments, and my paper pieced cocoa mug was made with a stamp from Do the Cocoa Motion.

Finally, to hold my little set of tags, I just had to make another one of my favorite little bags that I learned how to make in Kerri Bradford's Hello There class.  I used the Build a Chevy Background Stamps to stamp it with some festive chevrons.  Then I decorated it with a ticket made with a Stitched Fun Ticket Die and Holiday Tickets, a paper pieced stocking made with a stamp from Warm Holiday Fun, and a cute little postmark made with Postcard Add-Ons and dies from the Build a Banner Kit.

If you haven't seen it yet, I've created a PDF catalogue of all of the My Creative Time products.  I use this a TON for projects like today's, since I can search for specific sentiments that I'm looking for.  You can download it by clicking the link at the top right of my blog and then use it either on your computer or tablet.  It's very handy having it on my iPad!

Now, be sure to stop by My Creative Time to see what Emma and the rest of the design team have created for you today.  And join in the challenge!  I'd love to see the tags you create!
