2020 Christmas Gingerbread Themed Tags

For Christmas 2020 the theme for my yearly tags was Gingerbread.  These are usually sent to friends and family in groups of 4-6 depending on what I create to put them in.  These are sent instead of Christmas cards so the recipient can use them.  Most of them use them as Christmas Ornaments on their tree! 
This sweet Gingy is a Cottagecutz die.  It's just adorable sitting on top of that cupcake don't you think!
This darling Ginger is holding onto a spoon.  It's a die that was discovered on Aliexpress.
Here's another one with a slightly different saying.   You could write anything you want on the spoon.
One of my favorite Gingerbread days.  This is a Cottagecutz die that unfortunately is retired and no longer available.
This charming Gingerbread was another Aliexpress find.  I did swap out the peppermint for one I created with a Martha Stewart punch from my stash.
This delightful Gingerbread was another Aliexpress find.  Don't you just love the cup with the cupcakes!
This Gingerbread girl will steal your heart with her sweet Gingerbread dress.  She's just waiting to give you a hug!
It wouldn't be Christmas at the Hurlock house without something pink thrown  This is that darling retired Cottagecutz die with a Magnolia Doohickey oven.
In case your wondering, there were a lot of Gingerbread dies on Aliexpress.  This is another.  I have a collection of Gingerbread dies and stamps that I love and cherish.
And last but not least in the 2020 collection is this delightful Ginger.  He will make you smile!  Thanks for stopping by to view my Gingerbread tag collection.  Hope you get inspiration for your 2021 tags.  I'm already thinking of a theme for this  Until next time, stay safe, be happy, and crafty!

Memorydex Open Draw Style Christmas Collection

Greetings lovely friends and crafters!  Today I wanted to share memory dex cards that were created for an open draw style holder.  These are so cute it would be a shame not to post them here on my blog.  The first card is a camper with a snowman.  This die can be found at The Scrapping Cottage.  It's a CottageCutz die.  The memorydex card was created from a nesting die from my stash that I used a Hedi Swapp punch on to turn it into a card.
Isn't this Gingerbread Chef the cutest!!!  Yes, another Cottagecutz die, but I'm so sorry it is retired and unavailable.  As it is, I got my on eBay from someone downsizing their collection.  That cute oven is a Magnolia Doohicky Die.
This darling Gingerbread die was found on Aliexpress.  It's just puts a smile on your face doesn't it.  
This is another Cottagecutz die.  Santa in an airplane is so unique.  This is how Santa arrives here in GA since we have no snow for his sleigh!!! lol
That saying "Snowmen Melt Your Heart" is so true for this trio.  Another Cottagecutz die.  If you love snowmen, this is a must have for your collection.  They're just too adorable.
How about a cup of cheer to warm your heart.  This is an adorable die find on Aliexpress.  I love that Christmas tree cookie!!!!
You know I had to follow the trend of the pickup truck for Christmas.  But, you know I turned it A-la-Carol by making my truck pink!  This is another Cottagecutz die.
This card is very dimensional.  The house is a Magnolia Doohickey die, and the trees are from Aliexpress.  They create the perfect winter scene.
This Shaker Snowman is another Aliexpress find.  He's a charming addition to this collection of cards.
If you haven't guess it by now, I'm a huge fan of Cottagecutz dies.  This Santa is delightful.  His expression is sweet and endearing.
The last card to share is this Christmas Tree Shaker.  How fun it was putting this together.  It's another Aliexpress die.  Thanks so much for visiting today and letting me share some projects with you.  Running so far behind, but I think of this Blog as a place to record my crafting journey so I can look back on what I've created through the years.  Hope you find inspiration for your projects as well.  Until next time, be safe, be happy. be crafty!
