Welcome! I started this blog because I love to craft. I dabble with scrap booking, and card making. I love bending, folding and tweaking paper. I try other crafts, too. I hope to share some projects with you.

October Tags "All Things Fall"

   The tag theme for October was "All Things Fall". I felt that it would give everyone in the swap a little more freedom than making the theme something like "Halloween, harvest, or falling leaves".

   For this tag I chose a dark rusty background paper. I then made an overlay using assorted Angelina Fibers in shades of coppers and gold. The tree was cut from black card stock using a Silhouette cutting file and then placed onto the tag. Then using shades of vellum and a hand punch I punched out assorted color leaves and glued then into place on the branches of the tree. I finished it by applying a sticker to black card stock and then trimming off the extra card stock.. Then using homemade black foam squares I put it in place. I then finished it off by gluing a few vellum leaves to the pumpkin stalk.

   For the back I re-sized a piece of scrap book paper and glued it onto the back of the tag. Then I made more of the card stock backed stickers. I arranged them onto the tag using layers of foam squares to give them dimension. It is so easy to do and it makes inexpensive stickers into show stoppers.

   It is always a thrill to see what these talented artists come up with. I always want to keep them all but alas it is a swap and I can only keep one. The rest are swapped and traded among the artists. 

Take Care
