Keep Cozy Tags

Good Morning Peeps, I have a small project to show you today along with a little tip that I discovered a couple of months ago. Let’s get started...

Did you see the Keep Cozy set that was offered at the Farmer’s Market last month? I sure did and immediately put the adorable set in my cart and as always it was delivered to my door with the great service that we’ve all become accustomed to from The Greeting Farm. Fast service, savings, and stamps I {heart}...SCORE one for Farmer Denice!!

IMHO, it’s never too early to start making tags for the holiday and the word “NEVER” deserves repeating here because I have several nieces and nephews who all receive handmade tags each year, a retail job that requires extra hours during the holidays, and four kiddos at home...so it’s always good to get a head start on the holidays when I get the chance. Not only did I use the Keep Cozy set but I also used the snowflakes from the Clear Christmas set to make these tags. Brrrrr...




I thought I’d used the adorable new Holiday Anya to share a little tip I discovered a couple of months ago while using my Copics to color an image. It's pretty obvious I oversaturated the paper and the ink bled out, extending beyond the image lines. Ewwww...


I digressed about how it seems to take patience when using a blending pen to push the color back into the image and seeing how I’m an impatient person...I grabbed my white Pentel gel pen and colored over the leaking ink. Not only did it match my Neenah Solar White cardstock but it also disguised my out-of-image coloring (a.k.a. sloppy) well enough for me use the image on a project. It was super quick with great results!



I sure hope you find that little tid-bit helpful! Maybe you have a tip or two you’d like to share too...we’d love to hear them!

That's a great tip, seeing as I'm always oversaturating (ie: coloring outside the lines) my images ;)

The tags are beyond adorable and what a great gift idea!
