Burst of Joy


Peace, Love, and Joy - three wonderful sentiments to share all year long! I wish I could show you all the amazing ideas I have (and you will too) for this trio of little tags! Gift tags, embellishments, Advent calendars, labels, even a little love note for someone special! You can use one solo, combine the whole set, or make a big stack to take you through the holiday season.


Today I'm sharing a bright and cheerful card to remind myself to find joy in the sweet little things all through the year. I used the Bailiwick Background and added bright pops of colorful little berries with a small hole punch. They remind me of cherries. The little Nestled Bird, mounted with a pop dot, really stands out against a pearl white background. But the real star of the show is the bright sunshine glitter burst of JOY! I made this tag old school style, with a thick layer of craft glue and some very fine Fairie glitter. Poppystamps are so easy to work with that you could skip the glitter glue mess (my kitty still has glitter in his tail), and use some Christmas glitter paper for a holiday surprise that's practically mess free!

I think I've got a little room left for one more quick idea - -a few holiday gift tags. I made these with the Mesh Memory Box plastic stencil and some embossing powder. Add a little bit of colorful baker's twine and you're ready to go. You'll be amazed at how many ways you can decorate your own little trio of tags.
