Gift Tags "take 2"
Well, Halloween has come and gone. Thanksgiving and Christmas are right around the corner, yikes! With the new grandbaby due any day I figured it was time to start on holiday stuff...the more I can accomplish early the more time I have to spend with Kipp and her new bundle of joy. Yesterday Maya at Completely Coastal had a post on "nautical gift tags". It reminded me of the tags I made last year and how a little coastal twist would be cool. I got out my Cricut and cut a bunch of tags from card stock, then cut stars and anchors. The anchors are not on any cartridge I have, rather free clipart from the internet I turned into an svg file using Inkscape and Sure-Cuts-Alot. Those two tools turned my cricut into a very versatile machine...I don't need to rely on expensive cartridges anymore...I can cut almost anything I can dream up...so cool. Anyway...here's what I came up with in about 15 minutes. Thanks Maya for the nudge :)
