Carded & Tagged by Xyron

Today we're getting carded and tagged with these cute, all-in-one
gift card holder tags featuring vintage-style printables and fantastic adhesives from

I've used this set of birthday "vintage kids" printables on a few occasions and 
they're still a favorite to create with...especially quick tags that can be layered with
a few small embellishments.  Everyone LOVES receiving these on a package!

First, I started with some heavy textured patterned papers from Carta Bella.  
For each tag, I cut the paper to measure 6"W X 5"H.  The paper was scored
in half vertically so that it would measure 3"W X 5"H when folded. 
Next, I traced around a gift card to find placement for the adhesive.
(see above)

I used the Xyron Mega Runner
 (permanent adhesive) to apply runs of adhesive
along the outside tracing of the gift card.  The paper was then folded back in 
half and a pocket for the card has been created.

After cutting out each of the printables, I made them into stickers with the
Xyron 3" Sticker Maker.  This is my #1 go-to and favorite way to make just about 
anything 3" or less a sticker.  Just give the cellophane top a good rub before
peeling off and you have a sticker that will stay put!

Now for the fun of putting all of the tags together:

Each of the tags were dressed with a smaller tag on top, a row of pom poms
along the bottom and all sorts of sweet embellishments from my stash!
To the top, I threaded through a strand of twine for hanging and a
whimsical boutique style bow to complete the cuteness!

Now a gift card (or folded money) can be inserted to the top and added to
a gift bag or card front. Aren't they delightful!?!

I'm very excited to be back and designing with Xyron!
I've literally been a crafter for as long as I can remember. I enjoy all types of
DIY, home decor, mini albums, name it!
I look forward to sharing my Xyron projects with you throughout the year, but in
the meantime, please visit the XYRON FACEBOOK
page to see more awesome projects!

Later, y'all!

♥A little about me♥  I'm currently designing for Doodlebug Design and Scrapbook Adhesives and have had the honor of serving on 20+ manufacturers or retailer  design teams over the years!  When I'm not working as a school administrative assistant, you can almost  always find me crafting cuteness for my Etsy Shop: Dot & Whimsy :) Aside from paper-crafting, I also enjoy making jewelry, cross-stitch, embroidery,  home decorating, reading and watching reality TV.

A SN@P December Daily

**For the UNITY BLOG HOP, click --HERE--**

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee! Isn't this just the greatest idea, ever?  (scrapbooking wise, anyway) Welcome to my contribution to the  SIMPLE STORIES  DECEMBER DAILY BLOG HOP I'm so glad that you're joining us...I can't wait to hop around myself and see how the girls have decorated their SN@P Albums December Daily style :)
**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
