Christmas - Starting Early!

I know, I know the C word already!  I wanted to share something with you and give you something to think about that is a fun project to make for Christmas 2014!

As you may know I have an online workshop for a Tag Storage Project (see my left hand side bar).  At Christmas I taught a workshop that used this design to make a fun advent project.  There is a free idea tutorial on my You Tube Channel that assumes you have purchased the workshop so you can make the Tag Storage Unit in Christmas papers and then I show you how to make the Advent Tags on the free Video.

I taught this project in a real live workshop at the end of last year and I was delighted by the gorgeous tags that were being turned out.  I want to share with you the work of two of my friends and to show you their fabulous Christmas Advent tags so you can have lots of inspiration if you decided to purchase this on line workshop and make a Christmas Tag Advent Calendar for yourself.

The first photographs are of Deb's tags:

Look at all that gorgeous detail.  I love the jewelled baubles and the cute Christmas tree!  This was a Tim Holtz style tree cut in half!

Deb's tags are going to look fab every year and I know her Grandchildren are going to love seeing them each day.

Here is Julie's Tag storage unit all finished and looking gorgeous!  I love the beautiful lace trim she has used and I am definitely going to look out for something similar so I can do the same!

Here are Julie's lovely tags - each one a mini work of art!

Those mittens on strings are soooooo cute!

My friends have now inspired me to add some more Christmas loveliness to my tags too!

When I saw Julie's and Debs finished projects I knew I just had to share them with you all.  I know you will forgive me mentioning the C word now you have seen what my friends have created.

Thank you Deb and Julie for letting me share your Advent projects I love them and you have inspired me!

If you want to purchase your copy of the Tag Storage project you can either do so from my Left Hand side bar or you can follow this link to my ETSY shop if you would prefer.

Here is the link for the basic Advent Tag Video and if you share what you come up with don't forget to let me know so I can send other Advent Tag folk over for even more inspiration.

Have a lovely evening and I will see you tomorrow with a Card Tutorial that started out as a design for the boys and ended up as one for the girls too!

Thank you for popping by X


  1. Hi Helen - Oh my those gorgeous tags just serve to remindme that I did not get around to making some last year after watching your awesome video in November. Now that I am waa-ay ahead with my cards for this year (43 so far), I think I will take a break from them and make tags instead. So I am going to make a date to re-watch the video and then get cracking. Yes. That is my goal!! Huzzah! Thank you to your friends for sharing their tags & thank you for alll your inspiration.
    Looking forward to your new video soon too. Love n hugs
    Mo :o) x

    1. Hi Mo - 43 Cards already!!!! You are doing really well. You have definitely earned the time to make a tag or three! I will thank Julie and Deb for you! They inspired me too! I kept my tags very plain but I think they need a bit more work to make them really festive!

      Video is uploading so I shall post in the morning all being well.

      Have a wonderful half term.

    1. Hi Anne I am so glad you enjoyed my workshop and go such fab results. Are you going to make another one for your 2014 Tags?
