Deer Tags

Happy Monday!!! My weekend was great...but busy. Got a lot of Christmas shopping done and we had my son's 8th birthday party yesterday at a bowling alley. It was a GREAT time and he loved every minute of it.

So...I only had a little bit of time to play with my new toy (Cricut Expression) this weekend. Just enough time to read the quick guide and figure out how to cut a few things :)

Then, I figured I should MAKE something with the pile of deer, tags and sentiments I made during my practice session-

So I created some gift tags...Designer paper and stickers are by Echo Park.








What do you think? Be gentle...it is my first time using this powerhouse of a tool. Do you have a favorite??

Thanks so much for stopping by! (Stay tuned this week...just sayin'!)

These are adorable! What cartridge is the reindeer on? My favorite is the 'love' on where the two reindeer's antlers meet.

Anne Temple said...

It was easy, wasn't it? Your tags are gorgoeus, just like a pro. It's hard to choose one favorite, but I like the 2 deer kissing.

Cute, cute! Great job with your new tool. I would have to say the Love tag is my favorite. I like how the antlers come together.

Melissa Cash said...

Wow,your tags are beautiful Cammie! I especially love the "love" tag as it would be perfect for my hubster. Looks like you had a ton of fun playing with your expression. We have the Pazzles Pro at work and I hardly ever mess with it. You have inspired me to try cutting something today.
