Winter Mittens Previews

Welcome to the first day of the Gina K Designs' November release. I have two new sets this month and I'm excited to share one of them today. Do you know we have a little over 50 days until Christmas? That will come sooner than we realize. So, it's never too early to plan Christmas gifts, cards and such.

I designed Winter Mittens with gift-giving in mind. My first project shows you a simple tag that you can quickly make for a pretty addition to a homemade gift.
And yes, it coordinates with the Spellbinders Nested Mittens set.

Here's a short tutorial on how you can mass produce these tags.
You can also use the stamped text/label sentiments on Avery (#8460) labels for even quicker, mass produced tags for your handmade goodies.
Finally, I also want to show you that you can use these mitten images year-round. On this card, I used them as oven mitts for a homey card. The sentiment is from Asela's Sew Pretty set.
For more inspiration, make sure you check out GinaK's blog and this list of designers with more goodies to show, including projects using Melanie's A Year of Borders set:
