Not only do I have to think of Christmas cards but labels for Christmas presents are equally important too. I use a lot of them when wrapping presents up and nothing beats having them homemade and ready for use when the time comes!
These days, I've been coveting a lot of digital images, namely papers. I figured it's the best way for owing lots of papers minus the storage problem! And you can find well-known labels too e.g. My Mind's Eye, Cosmo Cricket, Echo Park, Basic Grey etc. jumping on the digital bandwagon. At least I can print when I need to and to a size I want too! So with that in mind, I set about creating my labels.
First thing I did was to measure my stamp image that I want to use on my label. Then I drew a box to indicate it.
After that, I merely chose my digital paper I wanted and resize around the box:
Then I printed it out. (Of course, to save paper, I reproduce it a few times and then printed!) To make the label more personal, I prefer to stamp onto it. Here's the final product:
The reindeer stamp is from It's Christmas, Deer!
I decided to play a bit more and created another two labels:
This was created using stamp set from Winter Wonderland. The image was coloured using Copics.
The Christmas digital papers came from Elle's Studio. The labels were created on Pages (iWork) but they can easily be done using Word (Microsoft) or Photoshop. I tend to use digital products when I'm short on time and need items in quantity quickly! However, I do enjoy stamping and would still like to give a personal touch to my projects. Hence, the two compliment each other pretty well!
Until then, have fun with your stamps!
