Rich and Emilia also took a Sushi class a few weeks ago at a local Sushi restaurant. They both love Sushi. I don't. Unfortunately she didn't learn anything she didn't already know. Rich asked the sushi chef to take a photo of them with their sushi but he could not figure out how to use the camera on his iPhone so the photos didn't come out very well, they still had fun though.
Today is also the 25th of the month which means it is time for another Papertrey Bloghop.
I have not been able to participate for the last 2 months mainly because I have been busy with Etsy orders and was not inspired by the challenges but things have slowed down for now and this month I was inspired by the challenge so I am really happy that I am able to play along today.
This month the challenge was to make a holiday card or tag using one of the non-traditional color schemes on Nicole's Blog. All of the color combinations are great and I hope to make something with them all eventually but this time I decided make all tags with the 3 that inspired me the most.
The first is my favorite color combo
here but when I saw this SVG file I liked the way it opened better and after reducing it to 75% it worked perfectly with the die cut of the house on the front. You can use this tag a couple of different ways. First you can hang it from your tree. Since our is still in storage I had to take the photo on a bush out front. You can also use it on a gift bag. After the gift is given you can take the house off and display it. There is also a magnetic piece on back for you to use as a magnet if you want to or you can display it on a shelf. The box holds 6 Hershey Kisses but I only put three in because it made it to heavy to hang from the tag with all six. These would make great gifts for kids
The next color combo I tried was this one.
Finally I gave this color combo a try.
The first thing I thought of when I saw this color combo was red gingham and gingerbread people. This is what I came up with.
That's all for now. I hope you have been inspired by some of my projects using these color combos. I look forward to seeing what everyone else has come with on Nicole's Blog now. I hope the rest of your week is a great one and as always thanks for stopping by.
