Now, enjoy this great tag tutorial from Rhea. We love these mixed media tags!

"I was inspired to create something a little bit different for my holiday tags this year. I wanted to be sure to incorporate different mediums in the project so I layered on lots of different products. ‘Twas the night before Christmas was the perfect paper for this project too! I also made a snapguide so that you can see how easy it was to pull these together! Cheers!"~Rhea

"Does anyone have a collection of christmas photos that are needing a home. I thought I would create an album that would hold quite a few and make a great gift. twelve days of christmas collection is a range for creating those keepsakes.

Tip: Use the solid side of the paper from the 6x6 patterns and solids pad for die cutting as contrast against the graphic 45 pattern papers." ~Andrew

Awesome projects! I wish Solange's tutorial for the rosette Christmas tree was a bit more thorough. I guess all the cutting dimensions she noted were for all of the rosette circles? Anyway, beautiful projects all:)
