***** ***** *****
If you didn't get enough from the sneak peeks this week -- I know it seems we sort of cheated everyone since it was a mini release this time! LOL -- you'll have lots of extras to see today. We have two guest designers joining us for this release and you won't want to miss their fab contributions to the line up! It's been great having Cheryl and Jayne working with us this week. 

For my first project today I've done a super cute little mini book using the Just Tags dies. Oh em gee, I love this layering tag set! So cute to use alone as I've done here, and perfect as a gift enclosure or tie-on. 


The sweet little Rudolph is from the Create a Critter cartridge and the papers are Echo Park, Season's Greetings 6x6 paper pad.


Title page :)

Each Christmas I make the grands reindeer poop or snowman soup. The boys especially like to gross out the girls by 'eating poop' --LOL-- the "story" is this adorable little poem that goes with it.



My next project, again using these fantabulous layering tag dies {aren't they AWESOME!?} is this tombstone Halloween card. It's so versatile! 


Inside is the "real" tombstone, complete with cracks in the concrete, dirt, fall leaves and ghostly figure!!!

I can't tell you how much fun this mini release is! The tag dies are an absolute must-have for any  paper crafter whether you make cards, layouts or anything else. They are just the size and to have them slightly different sizes for layering makes the perfect. Don't miss out, I have a feeling these will go super fast and you won't want to wait!

Ok, let's get to the hop, shall we!?? If you are coming here from Ruthie's blog, you are in the right place. If you are stopping here first, you may want to go to Emma's blog and start at the beginning so you don't miss anything.
