You Made It Monday, Vol. 55

It's time for another You Made It Monday and I can hardly wait to share the amazing creations I have spotted while looking for all that you have shared online for us to enjoy.  You guys made it hard for me this month and it sure seems like more and more of you are sharing your awesome creations which I love.  Keep it up!  We hope you enjoy our monthly You Made It Monday post as much as we enjoy sharing it with you.  So, keep sharing your creations and they could earn you $10 to spend in the Lil' Inker Designs shop.  We hope that will keep you creating with our products and keep you sharing your creations.

Here's this month's sampling of awesome creations!

It is time to show off some amazing Christmas creations that I spotted around the internet this past month.  I just know these will inspire you.

First up, I had a hard time choosing just one creation from Eriko, @eriko1202.  So make sure you go check out here Instagram feed for more lovely cards!

I just couldn't resist sharing this gorgeous shaker created with our Dual Stitched Christmas Tree Dies.  I love the soft color combo and how Eriko stamped the inside of the shaker with images from Filled Christmas Tree Stamps.  It's a simple but eye catching design that I just loved seeing.  Thanks so much for sharing!
Christmas is a time for nostalgia and Lindsey, @lindseym_p, made me smile with her use of some of our earlier products on this tag.

I just love how she created a tag using the Instant Camera Die! I just couldn't resist the snowy scene and the Jingle Bell replacing the "o" in "Joy" was just too much fun.  Love this, Lindsey!

I do not hide my love for this next featured product and I can't let you miss out on this gorgeous card from @runaji.

How gorgeous is that background?  I was floored when I saw the combo of that background with the cold embossed images from Rustic Christmas Stamps and the bear so perfectly colored and eye catching.  I just love it with all it's shine and subtle color.  Perfection!

Who doesn't need an idea for a simple and quick Christmas card?  Aileen, @huh_what_pardon, has you covered.

I can't help but love a product that makes a card so easy to create and our Boxed Up Greeting Dies are the perfect fit for simple and quick.  I just love how Aileen combined the Merry & Bright Holiday Greeting Die with a fancy background to make it elegant and simple.  Trimming it to layer on a the card front is just one of the ways this awesome product can be used.  So lovely!

This final card comes to us from Patricia, @scrapflower, and it is perfectly colored!

I love the colors on this gorgeous card.  It is so unique and has such a fun vintage feel to it.  Patricia really made our Season's Greetings Stamps shine as the star of this card.  The animals in this set are so fun to play with and color and I'm still amazed every time I see a customer do something new and different with the set.  Fabulous!

We hope you enjoyed this glimpse of the amazing creations you guys are sharing using the Lil' Inker Designs products.  I can't wait to see what else I discover in the week's to come and have the pleasure of sharing them with you on our next addition of You Made It Monday.

25 Days of Christmas Tags with Lil' Inker Designs

Hiiiiieeeeeeee!!!! I'm here for Lil' Inker Designs' turn for the 25 Days of Christmas Tags!!!!

Please CLICK HERE for details about our AMAZING Black Friday Sale happening RIGHT NOW!

This is Laura and I'm the owner of Lil' Inker Designs. If you're just hearing about my little company for the first time, WELCOME!

Lil' Inker Designs is a small company started in 2009 with an idea that was born right at my very own craft table and is still run out of two rooms in my home. I can often be seen designing products in my kitchen while simultaneously cooking dinner, packaging orders after dessert and answering customer inquiries from under the covers. HA!

I love LOVE to make tags - maybe even more than I enjoy making cards. I think because it's a smaller, cuter version than a card and because I love gift packaging and my tags often adorn my wrapped gifts.

Lil' Inker has so many awesome tags dies in its collection. My most recent favorite is our new Mitten Shaker Die Set.

Here are a couple of fantastic projects that were previously made by our Design Team Members. 

Aren't these fantastic??

While this die set makes the most adorable shaker, the largest die when used alone makes a FABULOUS tag. Have a look at these new gift tags that I made for today's hop!!!

Using the largest die in the set, I pulled out some of my favorite patterned paper and got cutting! Aren't these lovely cut from patterned paper?

 Then, I began to dress up my mittens by cutting the "wrist parts" in coordinating card stock. Each wrist part can be left plain (or solid) or you can use either of the wrist-pattern dies to add texture.

Once that was complete, I began to stamp my sentiment, holiday wishes, from the Ready Set Snow Stamp Set which was designed to coordinate with the Mitten Shaker Die Set. The sentiment was stamped on coordinating cardstock and die cut with the second to smallest die in the Stitched Mats: Circles Die Set.

Then, each mitten received a "from tag" which were die cut using our Sentiment Flag Original Die and stamped using an image from our Ornamental Christmas Stamp Set.

I am so excited about the way these turned out and I hope that I've inspired you to create something new with these supplies.

To celebrate the 25 Days of Christmas Tags Hop, we're giving away a $25 gift certificate to our store!

To be eligible to win this prize, please leave a comment on this blog post before Sunday, November 25th at 11:30 PM EST.
