I LOVE 'ENDCAPS!!'






















Good evening
Not much crafting going on here at the moment, but I did make these quick tags for  3 gifts for my friends hence the title regarding endcaps! Fellow Cricuteers will know the term it is a way of getting text inside a shape which is available on some of the Cricut carts. This one is the tag using endcaps feature from Plantin School cart and  the tags are about 9".My friends loved them!
We've had loads of snow here today and luckily it's my day off work and Connor finished college yesterday so we could stay in the warm! Lots more forecast for the weekend though! Everyone stay safe and warm!

Hi Julie love the labels, never have understood the expression endcaps! It has just dawned on me after all this time of visiting and chatting with you that you live int he same town as one of my husband's cousins (or at least I think they are cousins but definitely relatives). I get down there every now and again and take the kids over to Barry Island and go on the fun fair or/and the beach. Nice town but never found any craft shops, where do you hide them?

Wow Julie! Those fabulous tags sure make an impact! You're a pro with thouse endcaps. Think I manages it long ago, but wuldn't have the slightest how to do it today. Seriously festive wrapping! No snow here but lots of rain now, and in the forecast. I'll be staying indoors too. xxD

OMG!! Julie, these are just gorgeous! Girlfriend, you can wrap my gifts anytime.., lol. They are so beautiful, I must say you have the most beautiful papers over there in the UK. I love all the foil and the swirls really finishes these off. I just finished my cards tonight, so I will be sewing tomorrow. So glad you were off today, and can stay warm in the house. Maybe we can chat a bit tomorrow, around 3 my time. Hope to catch you.

Hugz, xx
