Demonstrator Swap tags

Hi Crafty Friends! Hope you all are good! Thought I would share my swaps that I made for tomorrows demonstrator's meeting. I am loving one of the tag sets that I made to sell on Etsy so I thought I would change it to be all Stampin' Up! supplies to use for the exchange.

Here they are:

It's not easy to tell in the pictures, or really in person, but on the little tag I made with the word window punch, I stamped the "friend" sentiment in Early Espresso instead of Black!!! Not really sure why. But I had made them all before I even realized it! It does look a little off, but at a glance you don't even notice. Still annoyed with myself that I did it though :-).

Here are the supplies I used:

Cardstock - Very Vanilla smooth, Real Red textured
Patterned Paper - Love Letter Designer Series
Inks - Crumb Cake, Early Espresso
Stamps - Tiny Tags
Punches - Large Scallop Circle, Designer Label, Bird, 1 3/8" Circle, Word Window, 1/16" hole
Button - Designer Naturals Basic Black and Crumb Cake

Normally everyone makes cards for the exchanges but I really just want to make tags lately :). So that is what I went for instead. I like this tag though. I think that it's a fun versatile template that can be used for any occasion. And for some reason it reminds me of candy! Not sure why though :).

I almost forgot! Have you seen Harry Potter yet? It was absolutley amazing! I saw it on Friday night with Thong, Marci and her husband and some friends from work! I loved it and so can't wait for the last installment to come out! I thought it was done extremely well!!!! I have been re-reading the book and didn't get as far as where the book ended but I was very happy with where they chose to end the movie! I really can't wait though for the final movie to come out in July. I looked it up and it shows it comes out 7/15/11. Looks like I should add the countdown widget to my sidebar! :)
In other crafty news, this weekend I did make 3 more numbers for my advent calendar!!! I will show those sometime this week! I think I should be halfway through by Thanksgiving. Not at all where I wanted to be, but that still gives me hope to get them done by December 1!!! So cross your fingers and here's hoping...

Hope you all have great Thanksgiving plans! My hubby daughter and I spend it with Thong's family. We do Thanksgiving with his and Christmas with mine. It works out nice that way, I think. So excited for Thanksgiving food and crafty day with Thong's cousins! We figured it would be fun to do some crafties this year instead of the normal board games, so now I am even more excited!

Hope you all have a great week!
