Christmas Tag Blog Hop

WELCOME!  You have now reached the end of our Christmas Tag Blog Hop.

I am very excited to participate in my very first Christmas Tag Blog Hop and share some Christmas tags that I made.  I had so many tag ideas in my head that I wanted to try, so I made more than one :)  All of my tags were made with the Close To My Heart Pear and Partridge paper pack (except for the black and gold on Santa), CTMH stamps, chipboard shapes, cranberry bakers twine, and some other embellishments.  I made most of my cuts from Cricut Artiste and Art Philosophy.  The poinsettia was cut from Joys of the Season.  I hope you like them!

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed our fun Christmas creations!  If you would like to return to the beginning of this hop, just follow this link back to Amie at

Retiring Close To My Heart Paper Packs

Hello Crafty People!  I just wanted to give everyone a heads up on which paper packs are being retired by Close To My Heart.  Once the new Idea Book is released for Spring, the following paper packs will no longer be available:

Flirty - fun paper with wonderfully vibrant colors and flowers

La Belle Vie - a romantic and feminine pack with a French theme

As well as the seasonal holiday packs

Moonlight - playful and spooky

Pear and Partridge - a richly colored paper pack perfect for preserving Christmas memories

If you are interested in any of these papers or their accessories and kits, please visit my website HERE and make your purchases before they are gone.

The Paper packs that will carry over to the new Spring/Summer Idea book are:





Although these paper packs will live on, sadly, their Workshop On The Go Kits will not.  So, if you are interested in purchasing any of those, don't wait too long!
