I am a SAHM mother of three...only one left home though. Paper crafting is my passion...I love creating things and saving memories. I also enjoy reading, baking, spending time with my friends and family, and walking my two furry children.
My goal on my blog is to share something a little crafty, something yummy, and something fun every week. Thank you for visiting & comments are appreciated :)
I wanted to share my latest swap item...tags. I loved making these. Our theme was "Birds of a Feather". To get my inspiration I just goggled "vintage bird images". Once I found these beautiful images, I just started creating. I cut the tags with my Coluzzle (old school...I know, but I like it for thicker papers) from some old folders I had. I liked them because they were not manila, but rather a brown. I also punched the little tag from the same folder. I then stamped feathers all over the tag, inked its edges and sanded the entire thing to distress it. I went through my scraps to find some pieces of vintage looking papers to layer with. I hand wrote the sentiments and stitching on the small tags. Then I just started layering and adding flowers, ribbon and a brad to get it the way I wanted it. I really like how they came out.
