But what to do with the tags???


I felt compelled yesterday to start using what has become a sizable stash of chipboard pieces. I began layering them on some tags that I had covered in paper some time ago. I had finished a fair amount of them but what to do with them???? Inspiration came today and I spent a fun day using them to embellish cards : )

Aren’t these just the cutest chipper and cheerful summery cards?

The chipboard bits are from American Crafts. They have all sorts of super fun shapes and some are even flocked!

I used a Tim Holtz ticket and an inked doily along with some vintage buttons. The sentiment would work great for an all occasion card.

This card has a lovely sheet music section made from a vintage image on Graphic’s Fairy.

Loving all the bright colors here : ) Especially when combined with my favorite craft paper borders.

I was using similar elements on each card….but got totally different looks.

This giant chipboard flower is so pretty. Don’t forget to ink the edges of your chipboard when working on vintage projects! The fun with these little cards is getting to use up mismatched leftover bits and give them a new life.

I used quite a few sheets out of my new paper packs in my Etsy Shop. They measure 6 x 4 inches and have 16 sheets in each pack…perfect for cards with lot’s of layers. They also work great in your Project 365 and scrapbooks! There’s not too many left as they have been a big hit in the brick and mortar shop. You can check them out by clicking on the link on the right…it’ll take you right to Polly’s on Etsy. I’ll be working on putting more together this weekend so check back for  new varieties.

I have lot’s more of these sweet little cards to share tomorrow…but I have to give D.H. his computer back. lol Hope you all have a nice evening. G
