I had every intention of working on tags today with all the lovely little scrappy bits leftover from yesterdays card making. But….. there was just too much pretty paper I couldn’t confine it to small tags.
This first card is totally shabby chic with soft colors and lot’s of ribbon and trim. The papers are from My Mind’s Eye. The sweet little flower is Prima.
This next card has bold colors and graphic stripes. The red glitter banner was already on the background sheet lucky me. I did separate the patterns with a coordinating solid red. Next a bit of sheer black ribbon with bow and several vintage buttons with string. The string I stole from D.H. Kenny’s merit badge sewing kit. LOL It’s stiff enough to use without a needle, which in my hands is a dangerous weapon : )
That large vintage ticket is from Tim Holtz. Found on a shopping trip with my BFF. We were going to split them. I must have forgot to get them out of the bag : ( Unfortunately I think I used up her half first….lol. Here’s the close up.
Last but not least…card # 3. I did utilize many scraps on this one….so I did work the pile down a bit. Once again the paper is from M.M.E. The sweet little bow image on top of that sticker is from Graphics Fairy. It was originally part of a frame. The butterfly is also from G.F. It looks so charming resting on the edge of that tag.
Yes…I did cut that bow out. My friends will all be laughing. Can’t help it…it’s just what I do. However to be fair…I will not heat emboss like they do so we all have our own little quirks that make our projects uniquely ours!
So after the kiddos get home today D.H. Kenny and I are going to meet the realtor for the hopefully new location for Polly’s. Crossing my fingers that all goes well. Just wish it wasn’t so rainy and gloomy. I will pass along the info as soon as I know anything.
