Hi there, friends. I hope you are well. This past week had its ups and downs. My son moved into his first apartment, so we have an empty nest now. Not sure how I feel about it yet, but I know it was bound to happen sometime. On the up side, my birthday was last week as well. It has stretched on for a week! I received some beautiful handmade items and cards and other wonderful gifts which I appreciate so much.
Today, I am sharing a tag I made using the beautiful papers from Pion Design--Shoreline Treasures.
For the base, I cut a tag shape from a cereal box and covered both sides with the paper, inking the edges. A bit of trim was added to the bottom. Using Tim Holtz' chicken wire die, I cut the shapes from brown cardstock and tucked them beneath the vintage photo. Isn't that child so sweet?!! I placed various flowers from my stash around the photo with some seashells from Michaels. A couple of Prima diecut leaves and some hemp bows were also tucked under the flowers. The "By the Sea" sentiment was cut from a border strip and placed on a flower. The word "moments" is also a diecut by Tim Holtz. Butterflies were fussy cut from the papers and added to the top. Tea-stained seam binding finishes it off.
I am pleased with how this tag turned out. Although it was difficult to part with, I sent it to a dear friend to thank her for her kindness. I hope she will like it.
It's a beautiful day here today with a break in the humidity. I plan to take some time to enjoy it. Thank you so much for stopping by. I appreciate the sweet comments you leave. Have a wonderful week ahead!
