We are mixing it up with the fabulous Memory Box!!!!! We are delighted to have Penny Ward here with us today to share her amazing tag using Memory Box and Essentials by Ellen products! Before we get to her amazingly scrumptious tag... Let's take a look at Laurel's tag and how she created it:
- Die Cut Plush Holly Stocking Die from Memory Box. The base of the stocking was die cut from cardstock (cut two stockings) and the trimmings (white) was die cut from felt.
2. Stitch around the images with some thread or floss in whatever color your prefer
4. Secure the second die cut stocking using strong tape. I used Be Creative tape.
5. Add a few jingle bells and voila, all done!
And the best part? The tag can double as a Christmas tree ornament! LOL

And now, let's check out the amazing tag Penny has prepared for us today.
From the Sunshine State of Florida, we're so pleased to have Penny Ward join us! Penny currently does beautiful work for Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko, Faber-Castell, Words 2 Scrap By and Memory Box. Today Penny is representing Memory Box as we bring you this month's Mix-It-Up challenge. Penny has crafted a paper mitten tag that's cozy enough to tuck treats in - using the Memory Box Plush Frosty Mitten die set together with our Essentials by Ellen, Santa's Flight and Tis the Season by Julie Ebersole. We love the combination of textures, like the sweet little pompoms on the cuff! Thank you, Penny, for joining in the fun!
