Thankful for you....
Trim the tree challenge...

The positive and the negative...

It's Blog Hop time at Papertrey Ink!  I haven't had a chance to play for quite a few months, so this time I was bound and determined to make some time to play along!  I decided to create some tags for the challenge. 

I used my favorite Cuttlebug snow flake die and diecut them from 3 x 4 1/2" pieces of cardstock.  I used both the actual diecut as well as the negative portion to create two sets of tags.  Double the diecuts, half the time.  :-) 


After I diecut them, I trimmed the corners of the 3 x 4 1/2" blocks to create tags.  I then backed them with patterned papers.  I used the beautiful new Frosted collection by Fancy Pants -- I LOVE the colors in this line.. they are so me!


For the actual snowflake diecuts, I adhered them to a patterned paper base.  Those little decorative circle elements under the deliciously enormous buttons are from Giga Guidelines.

I'm excited to snuggle on my couch later and hop around to see all the blog hop goodness!  Have a blessed Thanksgiving!
