Summer Tags


Hi there!  Hope you're having a wonderful weekend!  I have a couple tags to share today that were inspired by this adorable tag on Pinterest by Courtney Kelley!  I LOVED how Courtney used a cutting plate to cover the tag.  I thought it gave a nice texture!

I decided to use the Flip Flop Garland to create tags.  I used fun colors of cardstock and a couple of other fun dies!  The pink tag uses the Circles Cutting Plate and the orange tag uses the Loop-de-Loo Cutting Plate.  The flowers on the flip flop tags were created using the Bloomers 1 Die.  The sentiments were created using the Pockets & Pages June Script and Pockets & Pages July Script.

These would make fun tags for summer birthday gifts or any kind of summer party, really!  Thanks for stopping by today!  Have a wonderful day!

It's release day at Verve and we're celebrating with Day 5 of our June 2015 Spotlight Hops!  Have you enjoyed the spotlights we've been sharing this week? Well, the wait is over and everything previewed this week is available in the Verve online store now!

Today's spotlight is shining on The Sparkly Dreams set illustrated by Julee Tilman, as well as the Butterfly Dreams Die Set and the Flourished Tag Die Set.   If you've come from Marisa's Blog, then you're in the right place!  My card today uses the Sparkly Dream set.  I have always loved the Serenity Prayer, so that was my first choice as far as sentiments to use from this set!  :)    I stamped and then trimmed around the sentiment.  The butterfly was stamped and colored with Copic markers.  As a finishing touch, I used some ribbon from the Stormy Skies Ribbon Collection.

I've Had My Head in the Clouds


Hi there!  I have a fun card today that uses the Wild About You set from Taylored Expressions.  This was part of the last release at TE and this is the first I've gotten to use this set!  It is adorable!  I decided to create a scene with the giraffe.  I stamped, colored and die cut the giraffe using the coordinating Wild About You Dies.

I decided to use the Cloud Stacklets to go along with the adorable sentiment and the Build a Scene - Sunshine to create my scene.  I thought it created such a happy scene.  The inside of the card says "sorry I missed your birthday", which I think makes a great belated birthday card.  :)  The card base was embossed using the Cable Knit Embossing Folder.  I thought the "knit" looked like leafy vines and would go well with the giraffe.

Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope you've been inspired to create!  Have a wonderful day!
