Chic Tags and a You Tube Tutorial

Happy Tuesday friends.  I'm sharing a post I had up on the Chic Tags blog yesterday.

In case you've somehow missed it Chic Tags has been putting together fun little kits of journal cards, flair buttons and such each month. The December kit was totally great, but somehow in my December scrapping, I just never got to break it open.  I pulled it out last week, however determined to use it up.

Here is a perfect example of the great job Veronic and Albert do creating kits, that go with the current month's possible celebrations, but also your everyday pictures.  The Christmas kit, had a wonderful colour combination, and worked great for this layout, even though December is long behind us.  I pulled out a few other coordinating tags and went to town on this layout of my hubby and I enjoying our favourite past time.  Cheering on the Winnipeg Jets live at the arena.
 Here I've stitched a tag from the School House Collection to one from the December Kit.  I love the added surprise you get when you pull the card from the envelope to read the hidden journaling.
Even though "good cheer" is pretty synonymous with Christmas, I thought it was a pretty good fit for a sports fan themed page too.

Interested in how to create this background using the Silhouette Cameo and this freebie Chic Tags cut file?  Check out my YouTube tutorial here if you're interested.
