Guest Designer – Vicki Robertson

CSGuestDT6-VR-horzWelcome back to the Cropstop blog and another guest design post by Vicki Robertson of  He”artful” Validation of Vicki. Vicki has two beautiful Christmas themed tags to share with us today. Here’s what she says about creating them:


“We are a few days into August and I am still on my “Christmas in July” card making binge!  I have a huge supply of small patterned paper pieces that need to be used so I decided to continue my Christmas binge and create a stash of gift tags for special gifts I give.  Gift tags are a great way to use up the leftovers!


I started with basic Ranger tags and covered them with patterned paper.  One would have a vintage look with inked edges and the other more traditional Christmas colors.


I sorted through everything and decided what I would use on each of the tags. Then I moved it all around until I was happy with the arrangement.”
