Celebrate the Season

When I get new goodies, I like to use them right away.  So...I've had the new PTI wine bottle tag die for a few weeks and it had yet to be christened in my Sizzix machine :)  This week was it was time for its christening :)!  I kept the tag very simple making holly leaves from my Verve New Mercies set by adding a few gems and then adding the PTI sentiment.  With this particular bottle of wine though it may be better to have created a baby tag!  Don't you love the foot!  Cheap wine, but it tastes good!
And here is a close up of my entry for this week's Wee Memories Challenge!

Lovely Lynn, the holly looks great. Love that foot!

I've got a confession, I often times like the taste of cheap wine more than the expensive kind, so I often don't drink wine...Your tag is delightful, and the leaves overhanging the side is a great little touch!

I meant to say that I don't drink wine often outside the confines of my home because they don't sell a lot of cheap wine at restaurants.

This is a great gift idea, Lynn! I think you are a genius to make a tag for this brand of wine as a gift to new parents. That foot is perfect and in the yellow, would be great for a parents of boy or girl! Really love that idea, and will probably steal it from ya! LOL!

I love your tag! Makes me inspired to use my die (just got it yesterday)!

Arlene said...

Love the tag and love that you kept it simple. :)

Fabulous! Love the gems - they really pop!

Barb said...

That is such a neat die! Love what you've created with it, Lynn!

LOL, I've used this die a lot this week, just not as a wine bottle tag!! LOL Was this the wine we were going to open up this weekend IF I were there with you scrapbooking? I could never go because I would have to bring ALL my 6x6 pads!! LOL LOVE the Verve leaves with little berries...ah, Christmas is coming whether I try to deny it or not...I love Christmas, just not this early :)

Love your tag, Lynn! What a terrific shape with the notch at the bottom. Love how you let the holly leaves trail off the side-and the little clusters of bling are lovely!

Kathryn B said...

Oh I'm so jealous you got your wine tag die! I've been trying to get one since they came out and they are still back ordered Grrr! Your tag is beautiful Lynn!

just beautiful. what a great way to spruce up a wine gift.

Tiffany said...

Super pretty bottle tag! I love the look of your nestled 'berries'!

Amy said...

Lynn, why oh why did you have to show this tag? I love it and you've embellished it so simple but effective and not overdone.

P.S. my favorite wine is cheap too called Moscato Provincia di Pavia.
Here it is like $10 a bottle and seriously one of the best wines I've had. :)

Way to think outside the box on the holly leaves! Really like the gems! (Barefoot is good...my FIL turned me on to it and I love that it comes in mini bottles).

Laurie said...

First off...love me some Barefoot! :) Do we need a wine night? I think so! Your tag is so pretty! I love those branches and the little berries!
