Christmas Tags with Nicecrane

by water...

Hi, so glad you stopped by today! It's been a while since I've been able to showcase some of Ignacio's beautiful vintage images at his online store, Nicecrane Designs. A shoulder injury is to blame but so happy to report that I'm on the mend and back in my crafty room. :) I'll be back all next week with new and exciting projects showcasing some of my favorite images from Nicecrane. Today's offering is four tags featuring vintage images of Santa Claus which I adore. As you'll see, sometimes Santa has to get out of the sleigh and adapt his method of gift delivery to good boys & girls all over the world. My method of gift giving is not quite as exciting as Santa's but I do try and make my packages look as festive as possible. For my tags I printed out two collage sheets and trimmed each image with a paper cutter. I made two handmade tags using a plain manila folder and the other two were created with dies and a pre-made tag. Note: I've added Stickles to each one because it is holiday time and I wanted a bit of sparkle under the tree. ;) Now here's the other three with close ups of each.

Love the steampunk feel of this one,
couldn't resist using Sprighly Sprockets
dies to embellish.
Santa calling Mrs. Claus for directions ;-)

I used Spellbinders 2010 Christmas Ornament dies
and Pink Paislee's City Sidewalks paper collection.

 It seems everyone this year is running behind in their Christmas preparations. If you are I'll have some last minute gift, table setting, and home decor ideas that I will be sharing throughout next week featuring images from Nicecrane. In the meantime you can check out all of the vintage goodness that Ignacio has to offer by visiting Nicecrane Designs and be sure to visit the blog for more inspiration as well. One more thing before I go, a big welcome to Alison (aka butterfly) who recently joined the design team. I am thrilled she's on board with us and you'll want to check out her first DT project, The Year in Poetry, here. :) Here are the fab collage sheets I worked with.

L1, they're super CUTE! Each of them created with a different element and all so wonderfully different. Love the variation of delivery methods and of course..LOL...calling the ol' lady for directions..hahaha...that's a classic. I'm certain your gift wrapping is going to be the sensation of the year! So excited to see what else your doing with the NCD images. :)

Lisa, these are gorgeous! I love how unique the embellishing is on each one (especially the steampunk zepplin!) and LOVE that even the big man himself has to call his wife for directions!! You'd think he'd have GPS or something... ;)
I hope you and your family had a wonderful Christmas and that your new year is full of happiness!
