About Me

My photo
I'm a part-time primary school teacher, who started papercrafting 8 years ago, when I had a fancy to make my own Christmas cards. Since then, I have tried all sorts of techniques and styles - and I kind of like them all. So my work is very varied, which keeps me interested - and my crafty stash growing!! As well as cards, I love working with boxes and canvases - and I'm always seeking inspiration for new projects.

Crafter's Companion Challenge - Tag, Bag or Box!!

This month's challenge over at Crafter's Companion is 'Tag, Bag or Box'. Quite a scope there for your imagination. I have made a tag in a tag!! 
I started by printing out the Tag template from the Scruffy Little Cat CD onto Kraft card. The great topper with the boots is from the Embellishments section of the CD, printed onto Neenah Solar White card.

The papers and flowers are all from the Nature section of the Embossalicious Resource CD, as is the little pocket for the smaller tag. The orange and blue papers were printed onto Silk Finish Paper, and the pink onto Centura Pearl Hint of Gold. The spiral flowers were also printed onto Centura Pearl, and then put back through the printer to print the blue paper on the back. 

I used the 8x8 Rose Vine embossing folder to add some texture, and the sentiments are from Die'sire Sentimental Stamps - Memories are Made - stamped with Wild Honey and Victorian Velvet DI's.

To finish off, I inked the edges with Faded Jeans, Victorian Velvet and Wild Honey DI's, added some metal leaves and a butterfly from my stash, along with some ribbon and twine.
