Christmas in July 2019

Hello Friends,
I thought I would post a few pictures here on my blog of the Christmas tags I worked on this summer during "Christmas in July"...which included some tags I actually made in August too.

Product information about how these tags were made can be found on my Instagram posts:     
Or you can also look at my long winded videos on YT where I do try to show the dies and stamps that I use for each project and a close up of each tag.

These sweet stocking tags were made with a new Sissix Framelet style die designed by Sophie Guilar and a Cottage Cutz "Gingerbread Doll 4x4" Die" which came packaged with some Peachy Keen face stamps.  The "Fa La La"stamp is from Papertrey Ink.  I have to say that tags with gingerbread men and women and ginger children are my very favorite ones to create each year!  They make me smile every time!

The snowflake behind the center tag is a "Fancy Flake" die from Papertrey Ink.

Here are some closer views:

 The sweet wood striped shabby pink paper is from Iralamija Shop on Etsy

How about some wonderful Candy Canes using an AWESOME die from Simon Says Stamp:

Here are some in traditional Red Green....I LOVE THIS DIE!  Thanks Simon Says Stamp!!!!!

And some in pink and mint green:

The sweet round tag added to these candy canes is from Lil Inker Designs and is called the "Charm Tag Die Set" I love this set!!!!!! So perfect for adding a sentiment to shaped Christmas tags of any kind! The sentiments are from the "Friendship Jar Holiday Fillers" stamp set at Papertrey Ink.

We interrupt these Chrismtas tag posts to add another sweet gingerbread tag....
They bring a smile....don't they? I adore this sweet mixing bowl die set that Frantic Stamper created!  LOVE IT!!!!!  Baking themed products are so fun for Christmas tags!

Next some Ice Skating themed tags. These use two different wonderful Ice skater dies from Simon Says Stamp:


 I love this Doily Die behind the skaters. It is from Neat and Tangled!  It really made these tags stand out!

And a whole row of them all lined up!  

This is the Twirling Skater Die also from Simon Says Stamp!  I love both of these ice skating dies as I skated every winter growing up on a lake near my home.  My sisters are going to love these tags for sure!  Thanks Simon Says Stamp!!!!

I need to make more of this wonderful skater!  I love her!

Next come these sweet baking themed tags!  They feature the wonderful bowl die set with a whisk from Frantic Stamper.  And the sweet gingerbread dolls from Cottage Cutz as well as some old Quik Kutz ginger 2x2 dies too.

 Can you tell how much I love my gingers?  And anything baking related too! So sweet!

And here is one in blue:

And some in more traditional Chrismtas colors too:

This larger gingerbread girl tag is made using two Gingerbread die sets at Taylored Expressions that make both a girl and boy gingerbread all dressed up for the Christmas holidays!  You will love them!

 This sweet Momma Ginger is carrying a baby ginger 2x2 quik kutz die cut with a Peachy Keen face and white chalk pencil accents.

The cute oven mitt tag is a tag die from a small holiday themed tag set of 4 dies at Lawn Fawn!  It can also be used as a mitten of course!

 The "Homemade Gingerbread" stamp is from the "Friendship Jar Holiday Fillers" stamp set from Papertrey Ink!  I use this set every single year at the holidays!

How about some mitten tags using a sweet Pinpoint mitten die set from Poppy Stamps and a pair of hanging mittens from Frantic Stamper!

 Some in a red and white combo! So wonderful for the upcoming holidays:

 Love the felt hearts on this sweet pair!  And the gorgeous detailing on this mitten die!  I hope Memory Box and Poppy Stamps make more of these style dies! 

More gingers:

 This tag with the oven mitt uses a Spellbinders Mitten Die set and a sentiment from Lawn Fawn!  The background tags are from Pink Fresh Studio!  I love the cutouts that come with this wonderful set of dies!  Isn't that circle tag cute backed with kraft card stock!  So gingery!

Next more mitten tags:

These sweet tiny tags are using a tiny mitten die included in the Lil Inker Designs shaker mitten die set! 

Do tiny things make you happy?  They make my heart smile!

I love how these shaker mittens turn out! They are so fun to shake!  My son loves playing with them!
This one is filled with some Pretty Pink Posh clear gems!  So fun!

 This one has the gems and some sequins too!  This is such a wonderful die set by Lil Inker Designs!  Thanks so much!

 And here are a couple more stockings in traditional red and a fun tropical teal:

 The sweet whittle deer die is from Poppy Stamps too!

And finally one in red with GOLD GLITTER CARD STOCK accents!  So fun!

I didn't take pictures of all of the tags I created yet but this is a lot of them.  Thanks for taking a look!
Happy Holiday Crafting!

  2. Hello sweet Jill :) I love all of your tags. I wait all year and they just make my Christmas season. You combine dies perfectly. I hope all of these companies send you some dies to try out :) :) I bet all Christmas crafters know who Jill Norwood is!!! They need to pay attention to all of us that love your tags, they should make more things that we could use for tags. I just love looking at every little detail of your tags. I pray Blessings for you and Tim. Hugs, Iris,SavedbyGrace
    I sent you a message, I don't know if I sent it to the right place. I don't remember where I sent it now LOL I asked if you minded sending me your address, I have an idea I wanted to send you, something you mentioned you'd like to have.
