April Challenge
 
Stacy will present us with our challenge this month

JBgreendawn 11-25-2012 07:36 AM

Okay this is kind of a no-brainer type of a challenge to me but, its possible that some people have never thought to do it... today ( and I'm posting this way early for all of those working in advance) I spent about 3 hours putting together gift tags and small gift cards from scraps of things I had made recently... So, that is the challenge, after you finish your Christmas Card quota. I'd like to see you create at least one Christmas gift tag or folding gift card from the scraps.

good luck and have fun! :)

vikkijo 12-01-2012 07:31 AM

How many do like a set? A card, matching tag on the gift or even thank you's to coordinate with your cards...just being nosy!

I haven't done it in a couple of years, but I used to make my tags match my cards every year.

HappiLeaStamppin 03-14-2013 04:48 PM

I completed my first attempt at making Christmas Tags. I was a tad worried cause I don't have much for scraps... hard to believe but I don't lol. Anyway, here is a single and a group pic.

yikes i made a big fat ZERO cards in march. got a lot of catching up to do!!

vikkijo 04-02-2013 07:18 AM

I am hoping to be able to stay caught up, but I might not have internet until May or June. I am having issues justifying paying for this when I can't comment in galleries most days, post on here or FB, blog ..and oh the time outs and refreshing while doing an SU order. grrr

No slacking off while I am gone now girls! LOL

You've all made some wonderful cards and tags so far!

must love cats 04-02-2013 07:59 AM

Here are the start of my gift tags. I have sort of taken part in the challenge as these tags are made using scraps, just not scraps from this years card!!!Gift tags Santa by must love cats - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

I have not finished my Feb & March cards yet... :oops: but, the spring fair is done with so hoping to get caught up again shortly.

smadson 04-03-2013 05:34 PM

Can't believe how many have been here yet. I won't be doing these until the middle of the month or later, as I am going to visit my kids. I will be able to visit SCS, but not work in my craft room. :(

Arizona Maine 04-04-2013 08:59 AM

I've got my cards done, but I didn't make any tags. I've got tags coming out my ears already!!!!

But anyway, here's a picture of the six cards, and a link to the one I uploaded, it should be a cleaner picture, and has details.

I just finished my march cards a few days ago it was right down to the wire of the end of the month so I need to get started much earlier this month. I have a couple of images watercolored so just need to get a card put together with them. And I need some new gift tags so I love the challenge!

crazysexycool 04-06-2013 01:32 PM

hello everybody, I have not been here some time but I will get back to my shape soon so hopefully I will catch up.
Today I will post something different than a card , hope admin won't mind that. I made it as a present for Easter but .. it is a good present for Christmas as for Mother's day, Wedding or any other occasion.

I'm off to a good start for my cards for this months and have already met the challenge to create at least one tag from the scraps. So I thought I would link up the cards that I do have done so far eventhough I am not all the way finished.
1) Mo's Snow
2) Tag and Card set
3) EZ Tag - not for the toll road
