12 Tags of Christmas, Essentials By Ellen

12 Tags of Christmas 2021 – Day 7 with Amy Tsuruta and Jill D Hawkins

Welcome to Day 7 of 12 Tags of Christmas 2021! Today we have Amy Tsuruta along with our friend Jill D Hawkins. Someone is making a list and checking it twice. Any guesses what today’s carol is? You’re going to love how they were both inspired.

Hey there, the Christmas Carol that I picked is Santa Claus is Coming To Town. It’s Amy Tsuruta and I’m definitely dating myself when I say that I remember looking forward to watching the movie on an annual basis. I’m excited to have my friend Jill joining me today too! Here’s how I was inspired:

My tag features the set, Santa’s List by Julie Ebersole. The images were perfect for the song.

I teamed it up with the Shaker Globe by Julie Ebersole. The background of the tag is Concord & 9th Aqua Sky cardstock along with white glitter cardstock. I thought about designing a shaker tag but decided to do a bit of a faux shaker with the glitter cardstock. That Hero Arts glitter cardstocks looks especially glittery to me.

Tip: Using glitter cardstock is a great alternative to designing a shaker element.

The Farmhouse Tags contains 3 different tags, along with a reinforcement die that adds some great contrast. The long tag is so easy to customize to the length of your sentiment. I heat embossed the sentiment in Hero Arts Gold embossing powder.

I can’t wait to see how you’re inspired by the Santa Claus is Coming To Town Christmas Carol!

We have our friend Jill teamed up with Amy! Here’s how she was inspired by the Christmas Carol:

These two aren’t the only ones inspired by the Santa Claus is Coming to Town Christmas Carol! Check out what these designers have created…

    A great song and Amy you refer to a movie… I remember the B/W animated wooden characters TV show that came on (only once per season mind you) that I absolutely loved. Remember “put one foot in front of the other and soon you’ll be walking ‘cross the floo-oo-oor”?
