A quick challenge! (7gypsies: A Very Vintage Christmas)

So, this morning when I woke up, I checked my Facebook feed, and noticed an update from 7gypsies: "LAST DAY to enter the Very Vintage Christmas challenge on the 7G blog!"  I had missed the original challenge announcement (I blame my RSS reader, which has been wonky lately!), but I decided I'd give it a try anyway!

Here's the challenge (for me, at least!):  My local stores carry some 7gypsies products (indeed, I own some of their papers and stamp sets), but I didn't have any of their Christmas papers, and I wasn't sure if I'd find any.  After work today, I went out on the hunt, and managed to find a few sheets at Joann!  Success!  That, and a well-chosen gypsy pack, led to:

Materials/tools used:
 - Ranger Inkssentials Manila Craft Tags
 - 7gypsies Gypsy Pack: Vintage Market
 - 7gypsies Calender Tickets
 - 7gypsies Santa's Journey Collection: Santa's Trunk
 - Maya Road Twine Cording: Tomato Red
 - Dymo label maker
 - Tonic Craft Scissors
 - Single-hole punch
 - Double-stick tape from my stash

It felt really weird for me to create a tag without any stamps on it anywhere, but I have to say, once I figured how my layout, it sure came together fast!  Hope you like it!

'Til next time!



  1. Its really cute...I find very little of their products around my area, too. You lucked out.

  2. What an original Christmas card! Santa's message turned out to be very original. Thank you for using our embossing label makers. ^CP
