25 Days of Christmas Tags!

I am so excited to be taking part in this year's 25 Days of Christmas Tags! Have you seen all the sponsors that Tracey has this year?!
AMAZING, right??? Check out all the details on Tracey's blog HERE. My tag is part of the Jillibean Soup group so of course I had to create a Shaped Shaker Tag!
For the mini trees and sentiment I used last year's Jillibean Soup Snowglobe stamp set. There are lots of cute images in there for building a snowglobe scene so I used the mini trees to build a background.  I stamped the trees with Distress Oxide Lucky ink and once dry added white dots from a gel pen and tiny stars on top with a silver glitter gel pen. I gold heat embossed the sentiment and added some red Jillibean Soup sequins to the background with tiny drops of Tonic Studios Nuvo Crystal Drops on top. All of the products I used will be linked down below!
I hope you will play along and make a tag! Be sure to leave me a comment down below too! There are so many awesome prizes up for grabs! Good luck!

Jillibean Soup Shades of Color Collection

I am LOVING the new Jillibean Soup Shades of Color collection! What's not to love about bright, happy colors, paint swatch patterned papers and creativity themes? I have been using this collection on a ton of projects recently.
If you haven't checked out the Jillibean Soup designed digital cuts in the Silhouette store, you must! They are awesome. The Be Your Own Kind of Amazing is available there.
If you don't have a Silhouette, you can always grab the large die cut letters that coordinate with the collection like I did for this layout:
But if you DO have a Silhouette, they sell the same alphabet there too!
Another great thing about Jillibean Soup collections is that you can often mix and match collections very easily. I used both Shades of Color and Farmhouse Stew for this layout documenting our puppies' first birthday.
Another of my favorites from Jillibean Soup is the shakers! I can't get enough of the new shapes and seed beads and wood veneer shakers!
You can't go wrong with a Distress Oxide Inked background either!
Phew! Tons of projects with the new collections! Have you been creating with them! I would love to hear what you are making!
If you're interested in the products I used, they are all linked down below! Thanks for stopping by!

Ornament Shaker Cards

The Shaped Shaker Kit at Queen and Co this month is called Merry & Bright and it is FANTASTIC! It includes SIX different ornament shaped dies and shaped foam shakers to make the prettiest ornament shakers!
The colors in the kit vary widely from the fresh modern colors including pinks and teals like in the Joy card above, to the traditional Christmas colors you see below:
I love the candy toppings that you can use to fill the shakers and all the goodies including twine and stretchy string, that come in this kit.
If you would like to see all the elements of the kit and how I put the modern colored shaker card together, check out this video!
