Christmas Tags Swap With The Bugs Byte and Sassy Lady Designers

She's A Sassy Lady and The Bug Bytes took part in a Tag Swap! Wow we had so much fun and wait till you see the awesome tags.... Be sure to watch the video as you will see wonderful shots of each of these tags, better than I can take with a camera so I borrowed Pam's photos from The Bug Bytes as she is such a wonderful photographer.. The requirement of the tag was that it had to be approx -  6 1/4"x 3 1/8 and not too bulky while layering so that 15 of them should fit inside a small USPS flat rate box. We all went with the Christmas or holiday theme.

Pam and I split up the responsibilities, I organized and she got to have all the tags mailed to her and then mailed them all out.... She got to see them all first and what a joy it must have been for her. She said she was shouting with joy as each box arrived at her home. She got a little sneaky on us at the end and didn't tell us when they were put in the mail.... before you knew it they were at our door and we all were delighted.
Now for the pictures they are Pam's and I literally took them right off her blog so they are in the same order that she published them. 


  
2) Lori sent this cutie. Love the rich colors. Love that pretty blinged newsprint star  and how she cut the 25. Her blog - http://scrappinmystressaway.blogspot.com/ .

3) Cricut couple sent this wonderful tag. Love the colors chosen. That pink snow flaked paper is so so pretty. Their blog -  http://cricutcouple.blogspot.com/


4) Elizabeth aka makeupgirl217 from http://217creations.blogspot.com/ sent this Tim Holtz tag. The background is canvas. Love the texture on this one and the way she weaved the wreath/garland around the reindeer's neck. And the jingle bell. Love it!


5) Melissa from http://melissamade2.blogspot.com/ sent this lovely colored tag. It is a flapped tag so that we can add a message inside. Love that reindeer with that big nose. Cute!. I also got a cute colored card in the box she sent me. How sweet! 


6) Michelle http://ladyofleisureink.blogspot.com/ sent this wonderful tag. Love that blue colors and the candy dots on the tree as ornaments and the snow texture. Awesome. She also sent me a very pretty card. I will share the card on another post along with Melissa's lovely card. I tell you I have seen our designer's work on the blog but they do not come close to seeing, holding and touching their wonderful creations in person!!
Michelle's tag came in the lovely sealable plastic cover with her blog and detail on the label used as closure. Isn't that a wonderful idea. I so loved it that I copied the idea . I ordered some bags for my tags too and printed on a Avery label. So easy to design on their software and then print it out! And she has a blog post about all the lovely tags - http://ladyofleisureink.blogspot.com/2012/11/tags-galore-part-1.html




7) Here is Jeannie 's - http://nonnasscraps.blogspot.com/  Beautiful tag. Love the shape of the tag. Her layering style is awesome.I still enjoy looking at the card she once sent me. The layering in that was beautiful too. She is such a sweetie.



8) Beth aka thunderbirdlindy from  http://thunderbirdlindybydesign.blogspot.com/ sent this gorgeous tag. Love the blue color and the way she has attached the fence. That faux rosette is so cute (which I think is from the close to my heart artiste collection if I am not wrong) Awesome!



9) Love this action tag - another wobbler tag - this one an adorable elf from Lisa - http://momtooneson.blogspot.com/ .I love the texture she added o the string the elf holds. Awesome job Lisa


10)  Denine - http://www.pumpkinspiceblog.blogspot.com/ sent this little beauty. Don't  you love tree with those different pattern papers . I Love how she has used so many pattern paper but still they look unified!

11) Carolyn from http://cccscraproom.blogspot.com/  sent this lovely tags. So richly embellished. Head on to her blog to read her blog post about the tags if you want to see the items she used to make this awesome tag. So many stamps and dies for both the front and the back. Love it. http://cccscraproom.blogspot.com/2012/11/2012-christmas-tag-swap.html


12) Charlotte from http://alittlebitofdetail.blogspot.com/ sent this cute vintage tag. Love the colors. That blue is awesome against the beige/sand color and the reindeer die cut on that cute label with the bling is so perfect! 



13) And this gorgeous purple colored tag is from Jennie aka Javajen - http://javajencreations.blogspot.com/. Love that shade of violet/purple. The ribbon she has used is so cute!



14)  Cheryl from www.cherylswindow.com sent this gorgeous card. Ooh the texture on this one!. She is so good with multimedia ! This one is so rich in texture like Elizabeth's tag. Cheryl also has a lovely blog post up - http://cherylswindow.com/christmas-tag-swap-using-sizzix-eclips-and-stamp2cut/


And lastly Pam's tag. Isn't it just beautiful.... and the detail was amazing. Her machine cuts in much greater detail than I seem to get done and then look at that vintage photo! She had little pearls and even a bell at the top. Pam is such a wonderful designer I know you will want to spend a lot of time on The Bugs Byte.


Along with the tags, Pam also made a card to send along inside each and every package. She is so considerate and we all love her for the extra things she does to make everyone feel special.... We all thank you Pam! 


Now Pam wrapped up all tags before sending them off to their homes. She used these lovely muslin bags from http://statelinebag.com/muslin-bags/premium/  . Stamped them using versacraft black ink which can be used on fabric and wood - They are assortment of stamps mostly  from paper trey ink and a few from CTMH I think. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00161Q1MI/ref=wms_ohs_product
Then I colored using copic markers and added some diamond stickles.

Pam and I send a special thank to each designer for their hard work, they are so talented. I hope you enjoyed today's post.... know that I literally helped myself on Pam's blog for the photos and the information on the bags. Thanks Pam! The video is me though! All mistakes and all! LOL
