Christmas Baking Tags, A Giveaway & A Winner!

Hey Everyone!! :) I was going to wait to wait and post this project on Monday, but I love it when other people post over the weekend so in case there are other people out there like me I thought I'd post today! :) Before I show you my project for today I wanted to mention a couple other things....

I still have never heard back from the winner of the Flirty Girl stamp set, sponsored by Pink By Design, from  my 'It's A RAINBOW Party' Blog Hop. I (or random.org, rather) choose a new winner!! It's...

VIRGINIA BOOMFIELD!! 

Congrats!!! :) 

If you would like to be a winner, I am also giving away ANOTHER stamp set from Pink By Design!! It's the Our Teachers set!! 
If you would like to be entered to win this set, please head on over to THIS post and leave a comment!! Also make sure you are a follower!! 

OK, time for my project!! :) Last Christmas my mom asked her to make some tags she could attach to her Christmas baking she made for an exchange with some other ladies. I thought this year I would get ahead of the game since my baby is due November 5th and I wasn't sure how much time I would have to complete projects closer to Christmas. 


My favorite thing to do right now is to use the print/cut feature on my cameo (as I've said about 100 times in my recent posts!!). I almost always blank out the faces on the graphics so I can add my own adorable Peachy Keen faces. I wish I could remember which face assortment set I used for this project... I'm a little tired (lazy?!! ;)) to go downstairs to check... 


I also always add some glossy accents, glitter, etc. to add some dimension to my print and cut embellishments. Otherwise, I find them a bit FLAT. 


I purchased these cute Christmas baking graphics from The Dollar Graphics Depot. LOVE these super cheap graphics, and soooo much selection! 


(Sorry, bad photography... :() I used a small circle punch to make holes in the corners and tied some raphia in there as a way to hang the tags from the baking.


I used random papers all from Christmas Recollections stacks that were out last year at Christmas time. I made three of each of the four different designs and put them into a little set of tags for my mom. Print and cut makes duplicating projects sooo quick and easy! 


I found the 'to:' and 'from:' on the Christmas Wishes stamp set from Pink By Design. Speaking of Pink By Design... This is my 150th post tagged with Pink by Design, which means I have approx 150 Pink By Design projects on my blog!!!! That's a lot of Pink By Design inspiration!!! :) 

I'll be linking this little project up over at this weeks Peachy Keen Challege - Anything goes!! Did you happen to notice my project from last weeks PK challenge was chosen as TOP PEACH?? Now that's a great honor since there are sooo many awesome projects linked up there each week!!!
