12 Tags of Christmas day 4 and a winner!

Today is the final day of our 12 Tags of Christmas. The DT had the painstaking task of choosing a winner from all the wonderful entries we received. But, before I show you the winner I want to show you the last 3 tags created by members of the DT.

These last 3 tags come from CraftyDeb.

To make these tags she used the Quickutz Revolution Reinforced Tag, the Quickutz Cookie Cutter Holiday Shapes, and the Quickutz Basic Cookie Cutter Shapes. Great tags! Thanks CraftyDeb!

We receive lots of questions from viewers wanting to know about the cookie cutter dies. The are just dies! The dies come as the shape they are instead of being a 2x2" die with the shape in the center. The cookie cutter shapes can be used by themselves or in combination with other dies. The difference being that you have more control over where you cut. So, you can cut out your tag then place the cookie cutter shape wherever you want on the tag and cut a negative shape out of your tag. Like this:

But, enough about that. I know you're all "die-ing" to know who won the tag contest. Before I get to that, I want to take a moment to thank each and every one of you who entered the contest. We know first had the time and effort put into a project! They were all wonderful and it was difficult to pick just one. We've had many ask if we'd share all of the entries so soon I'm going to do a special post with all the tags that were entered.

Here's the winning entry:

Congratulations to Kristen Ann Hermanny of Illinois!!! What a beautiful tag! Please email me your snail mail addy so we can get your prize out to you!

Before I end today I'd like to show you this cute Money Ornament from DT member Brenda.

Brenda used dies from the Quickutz Jolly Gift Set to create this ornament. Here's a view of the backside where you can put the money:

What a fabulous idea!! I wonder how long it would take one of my kiddos to find this if I hung it on the Christmas tree? LOL!

That's all I have for today. Stay tuned to see the rest of the wonderful entries we received for the tag contest. I have 2 more jam packed Special Project posts next week...just in time for Christmas! Thanks for stoppin' by!

Beautiful, congrats to you Kristen Ann Hermanny!I think I might like to make a few flying reindeer using your innovation! Does everyone realize that there is not a flying reindeer...I think those are cow's feet? I have my own little story about 40 little cow's feeties, ask me about it sometime!
