Tag along...

...and have a look at what I've made this time!!

A while back I came across a lovely shop named Hope and Chances. There are some lovely things there including regular Charity Kits, the proceeds of which go to Ronald McDonald House Camberwell, if you read her blog you will see why. Anyway several months ago I bought such a kit and when it arrived I just didn't know where to start as it was so far removed from my usual papercrafting. So, it's sat there staring at me until yesterday when I set to and had a bash at my first ever tag book.

Here it is and I hope you like it...


I used all the components but inked the edges and used some of my own papers to compliment the rest.

 

I inked the edges just for a little definition


Me just about to take a chunk out of the Hubster while we were at Portland Bill on Sunday!! Not bad for a middle aged selfie.....oh youth is wasted on the young!!


This paper already had the text on it and I snipped some banners from the waste.


Having completed it I must now set to and make up the most recent kit which is three little wooden tags, so look out for those in the future!!

I am proudly taking my tags to play at these challenges

Charisma Cardz #14 - Show us what else you can do?...a tag book
NBUS #1 - Friendship (My very best one is my DH!!)

Looks like the rain is on it's way so I am off to mow the lawn beforehand. It will be nice not to have to water pots, baskets and planters though!!

Thanks for coming by and enjoy the rest of your day xx

Oh well done for a first effort on this type of thing. I wouldn't have had a clue as to where to start. You've used all these elements to make such a lovely project with so much shape, texture & color. Each tag had such dimension and interest and all the patterns made into a wonderful tag book. Certainly enjoyed the selfie - cute couple - and hope you got the mowing in ahead of the rain. TFS & Hugs

Hi Sarah

Your little book is fantastic!

I love all the little elements, embellishments and different techniques you have used.

You are right .. .. youth is wasted on the young .. ..shame we never realise the beauty and freedom it holds until it has gone :-(

I hope you have had a good week.

Love Jules xx
