Happy Saturday! Time to wakey wakey and rise and shine – have some coffee and catch up on the 24 tags of Christmas from this week if you’ve missed any!

The distressing technique works on cards too!
I might be the first person to distress with colored pencils – if you know someone else doing this, let me know!
24 Tags of Christmas 2018
Each year I make 24 tags – and give them away in a random drawing! This year I’ll be trying things a little differently; in the past I picked 2 people from YT comments and 2 from blog comments….but I found a lot of the YT folks never came to find out they won, and I had no idea how to reach them in many cases. So…this year, it’s all about blog comments where I can at least reach out to winners! So leave comments on each blog post this week for the opportunity to be in the drawing!

I love all your ideas and have tried so many of them. Thank you for sharing your talent. 🙂
Great idea, the distressing with colored pencils.
So so cute! Thanks for sharing
Who would have thought to use coffee!!
I think these tags look a little like luggage tags – so appropriate when so many are traveling at this time of the year — and I’d travel anywhere for coffee! Great set of tags – thanks!
I’m glad I just found you and your lovely tags.
I love your ideas, talents.
Thanks Sandy for showing us how to use all our art supplies! Gotta try this one 🙂
Hello. I love your videos. I was wondering what the difference is between baby oil and gamsol. Is baby oil thicker than gamsol, or about the same. I noticed (and you mentioned) the cotton ball in the baby oil. (Is baby oil cheaper than gamsol and/or easier to find?)
Thankfor your videos.
I love my colored pencils, thanks for showing how to distress with them, I can’t wait to try it myself! Super adorable tags!
What a wonderful idea! I love them!
Love the vintage feel of all your tags this year. Absolutely gorgeous
Can’t go wrong with coffee! Love them and the card is great!
Love the layers. So classy.
Loved the distress technique using colored pencils and the tags.
What fun tags and what a great technique, to distress with these pencils.
And 4 tags x 6 days makes 24. It was over too soon! Thanks for your continued inspiration!

Adorable, and love the card too
Awesome series Sandy! ¡
