The 25 Days of Christmas Tags {Days 1-17}

 I've been a little out of the loop for the last few (or more) years so I was thrilled to discover Tracey McNeely's 25 Days of Christmas Tags that she puts on every year! Of course, I couldn't resist playing along, but as the month has worn on, I was afraid I wouldn't be able to participate! I guess that's what Sundays are for...catching up on crafts! LOL! One of my little guys is sick, so we both stayed home from church so he could rest and it gave me the perfect excuse to get some tags made. Not gonna lie...I really don't NEED to make any tags, because, let's face Keeping Christmas series has gotten me way ahead in this department, but like I said, I just couldn't resist! The photos are not grouped by days or in any particular order, but by the ones that looked nice together. I will link up which tag inspired me, etc. for each photo. Day 12,13, 14 - JOY to the world tag was inspired by Melissa Bickford for Concord and 9th, so I chose to use Concord and 9th as well. I just loved her color combination, so that is what inspired me the most. The Peace Love and Joy tag was inspired by Latisha Yoast and I just loved how she clustered the evergreen foliage around the sentiment. the Reindeer tag was inspired by Elena Rousskas  . I really liked the winter scene she created, so I used some Distress Oxide inks to create my own.
It will take me FOREVER to link up all products, manufacturers, etc. AND all of the links to the inspiration designers pages, so...I will give a general link up of the companies that I used, etc. You can see those under the next photo.
All of my die cut tag bases are from the Tag Sale Collection from PTI. These tags are from Days 11,2,7. The Eskimo Kisses tag is inspired by Natalia Subkova , she created some fantastic shaker cards that I was itching to try. The Tis the Season tag is inspired by Tatiana and the fabulous blue stockings she used. I couldn't wait to see how these stocking images looked in the same shade.  the last one is inspired by Laurie Schmidlin. I really liked the way she used pink and red together, especially the flowers, so that is where I took the inspiration.

Day 6-This tag is inspired by Laura Pryor. I really liked the ornament cut out that she used and the vintage colors.

Day 15, 16, 9
The Dashing Through the Snow tag is inspired by Cornelia Wenekor and the fabulous white on white snowflakes she used. I decided to add in a touch of silver for some sparkle. The JOY tag is inspired by Michele Ferguson, I really liked her black, white and red combination. I liked the way she used the Zero as the wreath, so I added some holly and berries around each of the letters. The mittens tag is inspired by Lori Turner. I liked the grey and red color combo as well as the cute mitten. 

Days 10, 17, 3 The poinsettia tag is inpspired by Kate Capper
I liked her poinsettia and I had one left over from another card, so it worked out perfectly. The Christmas tree tag is inspired by Rebecca Keppel . I really liked her combination of gold, red and traditional green. I chose to use a large Christmas tree as the base. I just love shaped tags.  The Believe tag is inspired by Kelly Griglione. I always like a sideways sentiment and I knew I could re-create the same feel with this stamp set.
Day 5,4 and 1
The Happy Holidays tag is inspired by Svitlana, ...this tag actually reminded me of one I made for my Keeping Christmas series a few months ago. I was excited to use the pinecone and foliage. The penguin tag is inspired by Jen DelMuro . The hat inspired me to make a tag using this penguin wearing a similar hat. The Christ is born tag is inspired by Jo Nevill
I really like the large stars she used and the stars from this set reminded me of it.
I made another one but I wasn't happy with it so I am not sharing it here! LOL! So...I have days 1-17 done! Yay!
