Sparkly and Bright

Crystal and I did a Christmas tags class a few weeks ago.  I would plan anything with that woman.  She is extraordinarily creative, fun to be with, and to top it off, she appreciates my off-the-wall sense of humor.  We had two shifts of crafters come through her living room one Saturday, and there were a LOT of tags that went out the door.


  • Sparkly and Bright stamp set
  • Kraft, Whisper White, and Handsome Hunter card stock
  • Chocolate Chip Classic stamp pad; Real Red Stampin’ Write marker
  • Real Red 3/4″ Polka Dot Grosgrain ribbon
  • Big Shot and Stampin’ Up! Two Tags die
  • 1 3/8″ circle punch, Circle Scallop punch and UniBall Signo gel pen

I absolutely did NOT need this Bigz die until Crystal bought it.  As soon as I saw this tag, I knew I was in big, big trouble.  I could envision so many things in that little circle – Christmas trees, jack o’ laterns, birds, party hats, flowers, butterflies…any and every occasion.  She is a very bad influence.  It takes me 30 minutes to drive to her house (ie her craft room), but fortunately, she is only a few blocks from a) my husband’s office and b) my son’s high school.  I am trying to convince her to move next door to me, but so far no go.  Something about her house being 5 minutes from work.  Can you imagine how much trouble we could get into if she was only steps away??


(P.S.  Do not try to convince me to move closer to her.  Yes, I know it would be closer to my husband’s work.  Yes, I know it would be closer to my son’s school.  But I am a 5 minute walk from one of the most gorgeous beaches in the world and I am staying put.  I will buy my own Bigz Two Tags die if I have to.)
