There are so many options with this digital stamp set, because it has so many sentiments wrapped into one and you don't have to just use them for tags. You could repeat them and use for gift wrapping, place a picture in the centre, change the colour of the text, add layers using decoupage effect...................and on and on. I have layered this Happy Birthday two layer sentiment onto some square burgandy card and then embellished with some handmade quilled flowers and glued pearls.

You may have noticed that I used this image before on one of my cards, but last time I coloured in red and green. The image is Pollycraft Cherry Kisses Elf and I love it. This time I went with blues, silver, green and white. I have used my usual amount of bling too. Sorry about the pics but the light wasn't great today.
Here is a little dimensional shot for you. Let's hope we win the best dressed secret santa!!
Now for the recipe................

I wanted to share with you all my exciting news........................Nikky at PolkaDoodles has asked me to join the team of Polkadoodlettes and I'm thrilled that they think me worthy. I can't wait to start working with everybody and using their stash. They might regret asking me after a couple of weeks, as they don't know how nutty I am yet. LOL.
Anyways that's enough excitement for one day. Take care and thank you all for the lovely comments. Nettie.xx

Find the image you want. Now sometimes you get two of the same images one is a JPG file and the other is a PNG file. When copying and pasting this way I use the JPG file. Right click your image and click on the 'Copy' command
Going to your start bar on bottom left hand-side of your computer and open up Microsoft Word from your programs list
Now Right click on the image and hover over 'Text Wrapping' and a second list appears. Click on 'Tight'. This will allow you to move the image around the page and fit several images on one page
Now you all you need to do is print your image. Now you don't want to do this step yet if you want to put several images on one page. If you want to do this then just repeat the steps that you have just followed before printing. Now you are ready to print, click on the Windows icon at the top left hand-side, then click on the 'Print' option
The Print command box will now appear. Just click on 'Ok' to print out your images and you are finished..............ta da
I hope you have found this tutorial useful. Remember you can save the images on my blog if you want to or you can click them to view them in a magnified view. Take care Nettie.x

Now when it comes to passing on this award, I'm not too good at this. Only because I know some people don't like doing them. The only person that I would send it to is my mum, because she's always answering questions like these so here you go mum. But I would also like to give it to all my new DT friends and Lindsay of course, but please don't feel obliged to do this.
Thanks again Karin, I love your bloggy communications. Nettie.xx

I have used the sentiment circles for all of my cards to use a feature, but they can also be used with pictures or more LSS Digi images if you would like. Lindsay also has some freebie's in her shop, which can be found here. They are a gingerbread person?? and a Christmas Tree, the SVG files are also attached in this freebie. For more information or helpful tips then please visit Lindsay's blog.
