Christmas Tag

I made a very simple Christmas tag this morning.  I had a circle shaped image and a circle shaped tag from a pair of swimming togs that I had bought for my son.

I have used one of these tags that came from my son's togs (the left one I die-cut into shape).  I added the image from Eureka Stamps.  I coloured the image with copic markers B000 and YR23 and added Stickles to the snow and the border and Glossy Accents to the moon.  I added some gold twine to the tag.

Happiness Truth Love

wrapped around a heart!

I have used two papers from a paper pad.  I covered the join with a satin ribbon - this one is actually from a pack of Christmas ribbons but it works well with this image.  The image is from All Dressed Up and has been coloured with copic markers.  I added some pearls from Rosie's Studio to two of the corners of the image.

Valentines

I'm almost back up to date again - it's amazing how far I got behind with 5 days away with no internet.  Came back to a heap of e-mails and a whole lot of things that needed to be done.  Hopefully, by this time next week I'll be completely under control!  At least I have managed to fit in a bit more crafting time this week.

Friendship


I can remember playing with friends in the park when I was younger.  These days, children seem to be attached to their devices instead!

I have used a paper from a paper pad by LilyBeeDesign which I bought last week when I was away settling my son in to his new accommodation as he starts his first year away from home at university.  I matted the layers with some green cardstock.  I added some brown grosgrain ribbon from American Crafts to one of the layers.  I also added some brown pearls from Rosie's Studio.  The image is from The East Wind and is coloured with copic markers - I love the little birdie and bird's nest nestled in the tree!
