12 Tags of 2014 - March

Hi everyone,

I was looking at the calendar today and realized I had better post my March tag for the Tim Holtz' 12 Tags of 2014.

It started off as a tag, which I did complete, but after I thought, "oh I have another idea". Does that happen to you? I always look at something and think what I could have done. I drive myself crazy sometimes...

You can check out the post that Tim did here:

I didn't have the new bird stamps so I decided to make a "love letter" tag

I really like the word stamp. It inspired me the think about days gone by when people used to actually write letters. No email, no text messages, just pen and paper.

Which then led me to parchment and quills and ink. I made a foam stamp from the writing desk die. You can see it in the picture above. I also made my own pen nib out of foil and wrote "love" on the backside to add dimension. These are the elements I used for the card.

Here it is all put together.

And here's the two projects side by side
Hope you enjoyed my love letter projects, thank for stopping by.

A little bit o' luck

Hi everyone, 
Gosh it's been a while. My trip to Vietnam and Thailand was awesome. We had a really good time, especially getting away from winter for a month. I was lucky to have +34*C for a few weeks. However, back to reality for me. Oh well, next year...

I made a few St. Patrick's day projects and brought them to work to share with my gal pals.
I am also linking this up to the Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge blog here:

Here we go...
Sorry, this pic is a bit blurry, but it's the only one I took of the whole set.

Bo Bunny paper, Prima Paper, stamps, and Silhouette cut files ( shamrock flourish)

Silhouette cut file, scraps, celtic stamps, Gold Lame spray from Heidi Swapp

SVG cuts file from "surf shack" kit, Bo Bunny paper, Tim Holtz kraft paper

Sihouette cut files, round punches, gold spray, green thread, Bo Bunny papers (filled with chocolatey treats inside the pot)

Hope you enjoyed my St. Patrick's day projects. We had fun celebrating at the pub on Monday, after all, what's March 17th without green beer? See you soon.
