25 Days of Christmas Tags | Day 19 - JILLIBEAN SOUP

Monday, November 19, 2018


Welcome to Day 19 of "25 Days of Christmas Tags" - I'm delighted to be part of this wonderful concept created by Tracey McNeely. So, if you are visiting here for the first time you can find all the link up details and entry information HERE.
Today's sponsor is Jillibean Soup and as one of their design team members I'm honoured to be participating with a little tag I created just for today's event.

My tag was actually inspired by the Shape Shaker Program from Jillibean Soup as I really loved the Star Shaker and thought it would make a lovely addition to the top of a Christmas tree. I used the Star Shaker Card and cut it down to size for use as the tag front before adding the Star Shaker and filling it with Shaker Filler - Wood Veneer Stars and blue sequin stars.


And, as I've been rather addicted to hand stitching on my projects of late, I thought the little tree part of the tag would look really sweet in an ombre green/turquoise thread. It was also a perfect match for the brand new 'All About Plaid 6x8 Paper Pad' which I used the green and turquoise as a border edge for the tag.
Jillibean Soup are not only the Day 19 giveaway sponsor they are also part of this wonderful group of amazing contributors to the '25 Days of Christmas Tags' event.

    Love the stitching.
    Adding the wood stars in the
    shaker is a great idea. I
    wish sequins came in many
    more shapes. Great tag.
