Oh my! Day 1 and already my festive spirit is soaring! You and the CASual Friday gals have designed gorgeous tags! Hard to narrow down a 'single' thing that inspired me, dazzled as I am by everything, but here it is: the size of the tags. You've all shown that tags don't have to be "big" or ornate to be impressive! Love the 'little' works of art with mega impact!
Hugs~c

Marianne said...

Such a great way to start this challenge. My mind is already racing with ideas. I love the ornament shakers, but I also like the sweet mistletoe tag and Santa's sleigh. Last but not least, I love your own tag, Tracey. The white looks so crisp on the red tag, and I'm itching to ink up the snowflake stamps you've used.

Kathy W said...

First off, thank you so much for having this tag project! I look forward to it every year. My favorite tag today is yours; I love the look of red and white.

I am definitely inspired by traditional Christmas colors and icons featured in today's post. Thanks for another 25 Days of Christmas Tags event!!

Kelly Griglione said...

Hi Tracey! Thanks again for hosting such a fun event for everyone! Love how your red and white tag looks exactly like a Christmas sweater, especially with all the white dots you added. Just like it was knitted!!

Michele K. Henderson said...

Beautiful tags today! I am most inspired by just how gorgeous the bold, graphic, and clean tags are! Sometimes it feels like we have to really load the tags up with stuff to be pretty and each of these tags are just beautiful! I love Tracey's red and white snowflake tag - -it really feels cheerful!
Take care!
Michele

Patty Tanúz said...

Hola Tracey, your tag is beautiful, thanks for this merry and wonderful party!!!!!

Susie said...

I love the idea of creating tags because for some reason they seem more do-able in a time crunch. I don't have a lot of time these days to create it seems (or feels). Who isn't happy for more tags when gift wrapping time comes around?! "Not I, she said!"

Inkyfingers said...

Gosh what a fabulous collection and already I can't decide between the last two as to which is my favourite!!!!

Denise Bryant said...

Starting off with a bang for your Day 1 post! I love Vicki's shaker tag... inspired to make a shaker card or tag after looking at the cute details! Also love the red and white combo on your pretty tag, Tracey! Inspired to cut some snowflakes from several dies I have!

Dr Sonia S V said...

Such beautiful elegant creations
Cheers

Greta said...

I don't make a lot of tags, but I so enjoyed your Tag event last year I've been looking forward to November & here it is! Fun tags to start--love the idea of a shaker tag--gotta try that! Your CASology tag is beautiful, but I have to admit I had to look twice to get how it applied to the cue word & then I shouted out loud--brilliant, Tracey!

artful-notions said...

OK, I am in the holiday mood! All these wonderful tags make me want to get crafty! Kelly's sleigh reminds me of my father's ranch. We had a red sleigh out in front every Christmas!

Hi Tracey, I was looking back at all of the blog posts so far since day one and I can't believe I forgot to comment!! I remember trying a few tags last year which was the first time I became aware of your Christmas Tag Challenge. I haven't been making cards that long, but I have finally gotten a better rhythm and am able to make more tags this fall because most of my Christmas cards are completed for the year, including a bunch for card drives. I am loving all the different tags and getting lots of inspiration. Thanks for organizing this!
