Operation Tag!

Hi everyone!
I was on facebook the other day and I saw that Leslie from Trendy Twine was gathering birthday tags for her mom that she is attaching to a string at her mom's birthday party. If you haven't met Leslie yet, click here to visit her twine store. She comes up with awesome colors of twine that are great embellishments for all sorts of crafty projects.

I think tags are so fun to make because they are small so I know I can finish it within an hour, plus they just look so good whatever theme you go with. I told her I was in, and went with a Fall theme for mine, including 5 different Fall twine colors. I was going to do a grid look, but I really liked the look of the twine crossing at an angle instead. It reminded me of a rainbow.

I had a lot of fun being a part of this birthday celebration, thank you Leslie, for letting me join in on the surprise.

                                                            Happy Birthday Janice!!!



 
 The pumpkin and maple leaf are from SVG Cuts retired free files, the small maple leaf is a punch from Michaels.
I also used the Victoria embossing folder from Cuttlebug. Then I rubbed a white pigment ink pad over the raised areas and used my Kaleidoscope embossing powder.

Fall Themed Thanksgiving Album

For this album, I used some pictures from Thanksgiving with my family in 2009. It was a fun day at my oldest sister's house and she did such a great job hosting Thanksgiving that year. It was filled with all of the things I love about Thanksgiving, including games,  traditional foods, coffee with pumpkin pie and followed up with a bon fire and sorting through Black Friday deals in the paper. I will always cherish these times, so it was really great re-living it by making a mini album of that special day.









 
I used some really fun files from Lettering Delights, both the album and the elements are from LD. I just loved that owl, it's so cute! I also used Fall colors of my Trendy Twine and the papers are a mix of digital and scrapbook papers. My favorite are the ones from Imaginisce. I also used some markers from Ranger, the distress Picket Fence and Antique Linen.


 
To make some of my embellishments I just poked some holes and threaded my twine through them.

 
Stay tuned for some more fun Fall projects.
