Celebrate December : Capture Life

Capture Life – Custom Holiday Tags

If you’re like me your camera has been getting an extra work out on a daily basis this month. I love the bits and pieces of our Holiday celebrations that get captured this time of year.  Whether it’s family & friends or telling “elf” tales I hope you’ve been snapping away.

Today I’m going to show you a way to incorporate a few of those photos into some last minute gift wrapping.
Here are a few of my favorite shots I chose to use:  

I resized them to around 2×3 inches and printed them on both white cardstock as well as the vellum from the Noel collection.
I love the way the snowflakes create an extra layer on top of the images.

Along with my photos I used pieces from the December Tag kit, and the free gift tags that came with every shipped order in December!

The key to this type of tag is layering. The base layer was created with a tag from the December Tag kit, a photo printed on the vellum and one of the cute hashtag quotes; also from the December kit.

Layer 2 is simply a vellum photo and a punched snowflake from glitter paper.

Layer 3 is a photo of Santa that was printed on the white cardstock and again a glitter snowflake.

Layer 4 is simply perfect; one of those adorable free gift tags!

I hope you are able to take a sit, make a few beautiful tags, and enjoy every moment of this exciting time of year!

Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays!
