Tag Swap Beauties!!!

I did my very first swap ~ a tag swap with my design sisters at The Bug Bytes and She's A Sassy Lady!  There were 15 of us who participated and this is the tag I created to share.  I included all of the tags at the bottom of this post!!!
As a Cricut Circle Member, I got several free CCR Exclusive cuts on my Gypsy in July.  This tag is cut from Teresa Collins Christmas Sentiments.  I cut it at 6 inches.

I cut the tags out of burgundy cardstock.

The tag base is also from TC Christmas Sentiment sized to 6 inches.

I cut these out of kraft cardstock.

I cut out the stars using paper from Imagine Vintage Papers.  I printed a full sheet on my Imagine then cut the stars using my Gypsy and Expression.

I inked all of the pieces with Vintage Photo.

I added these red pearls to the star.

The chevron green paper came from Hobby Lobby and I adhered it behind the cut out 25.

I wrapped up my tags and mailed them to Pam!

Finally, I received this package below:
Pam stamped and colored this beautiful bag that the tags came in!!  She also made us each a card with a very nice message inside!!!

Here are the gorgeous tags I received!!!!

I love the purple one - my favorite color!!!  The penguin is a wobble - so cute!  Look at all of the different designs!

The elf is also a wobble!!  I can't believe all of the pretty details!!

Here are the rest!!

This tag even flips open!!

Thanks so much for organizing this swap Pam and Sheila!!!  I had a lot of fun and it felt like Christmas when I opened my package!!  I think I will display these in my craft room this Christmas :)
