24 Tags of Christmas 2017: Layered Images, Purple Onion

NOTE: Michele over at Purple Onion is away due to a death in her family; she’s asked that we wait to pummel her with orders til she’s back and underway again. Her website says the 21st, with orders possibly taking 2 weeks, but I suspect it could be a little longer than that. Please be praying for her family in the meantime; and be patient with any orders you place. 

If you’re already a Purple Onion fan, and have a blog, drop me a note using my contact page – I’m working on a little surprise if you’re game to join in.

24 Tags of Christmas 2017: Layered Images

If you’ve been following me for a while, you’ll know that I love Stacey Yacula’s designs at Purple Onion Designs! She’s such a good illustrator – and the images are really good ones for this technique I haven’t used in a while: layering. Figure out what parts are in the front and which are in the back, and layer them with a little adhesive between….and you get a really fun look! Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.


As is tradition, I’ll be choosing winners for each of the 24 tags made in these 6 videos – leave comments on the blog as well as on YouTube for more chances to WIN!

Christmas Bible Crafts: Chocolate Bibles

In addition to the tags for these 6 days, I’ve been sharing Christmas crafts on my other channel – this time…CHOCOLATE! You could use the sizes in the template, and add your own words to the “book” to make secular versions. Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

  43. The things you come up with continue to astonish me. These are certainly NOT a tag. They are KEEPSAKES, and meant to be carefully wrapped in tissue at the end of the season (for me the end of January) and safely tucked away to delight and marvel over year after year.

  44. Sandy these cannot be any cuter or more thoughtful and NO, those are not fun or even funny, the bigger they are the more fun they are…just saying!
