Rudolph Tag 
by Beate Johns 
"I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! We couldn't go to see family, but we still had a great time. Rick grilled our turkey (breast) and it tasted great. Today I want to show you a Christmas tag created with the darling reindeer die from Frosty Forms. I love that die! I couldn't help myself and had to turn it into Rudolph.

Simple pleasures...
"Don't you just LOVE this tree!  I really like how the Signo white pen on the berries makes them pop against the brown and look three-dimensional.  
  • Memory Box stamp JOY Outline A1379
  • Memory Box stamp Berry Tree F1890
  • PoppyStamps die Sitting Cat 860
  • Distress Ink Gathering Twigs
  • Distress Marker Antique Linen
  • Signo White gel pen
  • Neenah Desert Storm and scrap of black cardstocks
  • Memory Box Chestnut note card
When I found this sentiment, I knew I had to create a scene for the inside of the card.  How perfect that the die cut cat on the front has become the stamped cat by the chair!


  • Memory Box stamp Cat and Lamp D1268
  • Memory Box stamp Cozy Chair D1184
  • Memento Tuxedo Black ink
  • Distress Markers Antique Linen, Frayed Burlap, Faded Jeans
  • Memory Box Moroccan Vanilla Bean
  • black fine point pen for handwritten sentiment
This may be the holiday card I send to book-loving friends this year.  It could also be  a card that I send any time throughout the year.  I've made several, changing up the Memory Box papers on the chairs and the colors of the lampshades and tea cups.  
Happy Crafting!"

Need Dividers?

"I have always loved the Memory Box Blank Ticket stamp {G1780}. Well, the other day I re-organized all of my embossing folder swatches and inks. I didn't just want all of the swatches stacked in a box so I created dividers. So, grab the Blank Ticket stamp, the Memory Box Pixie 6x6 paper pack, and let's get started on making a few dividers.
Note: The Memory Box Index Card stamp {G1781} would work great for this too!
Pin It
1. Using the brown paper from the Pixie paper pack, cut a 5 1/4" x 3" piece. Back with other cardstock if you want your divider to be a bit heavier.
Note: Other paper options include the Memory Box 8 1/2 x 11 paper in Vanilla Bean or Mocha.
2. Using white ink, stamp the Blank Ticket stamp onto the paper. I stamped mine towards the top and right side of the divider. I didn't want it centered because I added tabs.
3. Trim around the top corners of the stamped image.
4. Add washi tape to the left side of the divider for tabs.
5. Sew around the edges to finish.
You could use this style of divider for many things. Look around and see what might need organizing and have fun! Thanks for stopping by!"

Only one week to wait until my granddaughter Kacie walks down the aisle. I picked up my dress this afternoon; we'll see how it fits tomorrow morning. The rehearsal and dinner happens Thursday night; on Saturday, it all comes together! If I seem a little goofy this week, you'll know why!
