Welcome to the 24 tags of Christmas series for 2015! Are you enjoying this year’s series as much as last year? (If you’d like to see last year’s day four tag, click HERE.)

Embossing a scene

This set from Ellen Hutson, designed by BestLaugherOnYouTube Julie Ebersole, is the perfect set for tags – especially for gifts from Santa, or for me – gifts I’m giving from Secret Santa! I decided to try something I haven’t ever done before – create a scene, but do so with embossing, and not with any coloring. Eeep! What! Check out the video below, or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube!

While working on these tags, I felt like saying “Look ma! No coloring!” But I suppose coloring with embossing powder is a form of coloring, right? Sandy Allnock 24 Tags Embossing a scene

Open Studio Day!

Join me on Periscope sometime during the day – it’s Open Studio, so you can pop by anytime to check progress on an all-day piece!



Handmade is the best kind of giveaway! Each year I give away all of the tags made in the series – so there will be 24 winners! To sweeten the pot, I am giving a financial donation to 24 charities in the name of each of the winners – so they’re going to get to pick which charity they love most.  To qualify to win, leave a comment on this post with YOUR favorite charity, and a comment on the YT video each day all week. I’ll pick 12 from blog comments and 12 from YouTube comments, and announce them all on Sunday the 15th!
