Hello and welcome,

I hope this finds you well. I've finally completed my Tim Tag for June. I was so excited to use his new paper range Correspondence, the rub-ons and envelope die. I cut an oval in the front of the envelope with a movers and shaper's oval so you could see the Gift Card.

Tim's 12 Tags of 2015 - May

Hello again and welcome,

I have my Tim Tag to share.

Here is the link to Tim's Blog.

I started by cutting the packaging from the Found Relatives. How cute are these miniature Cabinet Cards?

Here I have used the new Idea-ology Gallery Industrious Stickers. I absolutely adore these frames I've purchased 5 packets. lol.  I used two of the frames and attached them to a piece of printed acetate, then behind the acetate I placed some of the packaging from behind the frames packet. I hope that makes sense.
My apologies for not posting more photos along the way I sort of forgot.

On the left edge die piece cut from grunge paper I added crackle rock candy and backed it with a piece from Tim's mirrored sheet and on the right is my contribution to hessian.

Behind the gentleman on the left I have also added another piece of acetate and one of the miniature cabinet card backs.

Remember to check out the packaging to see what can be used on a future project.
Thanks for stopping by.
Enjoy the rest of your day!

Tim's 12 Tags of 2015 - April

Hello and welcome,

Today I am sharing my Tim Tag for April.  Here is the link so you can check out all the amazing entries and of course Tim's Tags too. It is Winter here in Australia and sitting in by the fire reading a good book is all I have been thinking about, hence the books on the tag.
I hope you can find time to sit and relax with a good book or perhaps write in a journal.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
Have a Wonderful Day!!
