About Me

Well, I can't really tell you allllll about me! LOL. But I can tell you that I'm a wife, mother, grandmother, aunt, cousin, and Christian. And I love scrapbooking, card making, painting, and altered art.  I love to coordinate parties with themes and come up with new ways to incorporate paper art into them.   I enjoy working with my hands and making something out of nothing.  It's such a wonderful thing to know that there are so many beautiful women out there who share the same passion for this hobby....ART! that I do. I draw inspiration from everything around me and from people like you! So, let's get scrappin'!

Prima Doll Tag Charm Swap / Tmika of Scrapdaworld 2014

Hello crafty peeps!

Recently, I joined in on the fun of swapping on YouTube.
And Tmika over at http://www.youtube.com/user/scrapdaworld? feature=watch and http://scrapdaworld.blogspot.com/2014/01/prima-doll-tag-and-charm-swap.html recently challenged us to use those things that we went crazy for buying.  And these types of swaps are a good way to use those things that you decided that you "had" to have, those things that you "had" to have in different colors and different sizes, those things that you searched every local scrapbook store and major scrapbook supplies store for and every place that you could think of online.  Sometimes even asking friends in different states to locate and buy for you! And lo and behold - that stuff just went into your stash, never to be seen again! LOL.

Aaaah, until now....

So this time around we were challenged to use those items to make tags with our Prima Doll stamps, bottle caps and/or dominoes. One of my favorite things when it comes to scrapping.  Creating tags on a large scale. And if you've jumped onto the Prima Doll Mixed Media Doll bandwagon, then you know that these stamps are pretty large.

For this swap we were to make four tags; keeping one for ourselves, and swapping three. Each tag was to have at least three elements - flowers, ribbon, bling, brad, etc. along with the Prima Doll. And then a bottle cap or domino charm attached to the tag.

The supplies that were used to create my tags were: 
homemade texture paste, chipboard tags, Basic Grey Embark and Colorbok textured patterned cardstock, I am roses, Trico, and Prima flowers, wooden picket fence, pearl bead spray, 
Tim Holtz alcohol ink in Lettuce, acrylic beads
 lace, ModPodge and Copic marker E33

All of the stamps were basically the same except the mixture of flowers.
 At this point, I hadn't added the ribbon - it was still drying

I also created individual envelopes using these

I used the same papers to ModPodge and layer onto the painted  
(My Studio sage green #72741) envelope

All packaged and ready to go

 Tag created for the hostess

I hope that the ladies in my group are as happy as I am with the way my tags turned out. Unfortunately, silly me, I forgot to take a picture of the bottle cap charms on the back of each tag.

Thank you goes out to Tmika for challenging us to use what's in our stash. It was fun! And please, leave a comment, I'm always happy to hear from you!

Until next time,
