Tag and Sleeve

I'm so not a crafty person, hence why I have an amazing DT (to hide the fact that I'm not crafty).  My DT is always asking me what kind of stuff I make.  Me, I'm not creative.  That is why I love looking at all the pretty things everyone creates.  This week I thought I'd be brave and try to make something.  Something easy.  I'm more of a tag person than a card person, probably because they are easier for me to make.

So, here we go.  Are you ready for this?  Well... I'm not sure if I am.  But here it is.



Pretty simple, but I was sort of impressed with myself.  The flowers were cut from two different sizzix dies.  The paper is from my paper hording stash.  Yay!  I finally used some.  The envelope is a kraft sleeve that I inked the edges on.  I used some of the new paper tape that is in the store.  It has to pink, of course!  I'm really loving that tape.  So pretty and super easy to use.  I will have to buy myself every color.  I will be using that A LOT.  The button is from the Buttons Galore Sherbert collection.  (There are a ton of buttons in that bag).  I used Strawberry Cupcake Trendy Twine, what project would be complete without some yummy twine?  The tag is one of the tags that I made from cardstock that I printed pink graph grip lines on then used a sizzix die (a Tim Holtz one) and topped it with a kraft reinforcement.  Then I stamped a cute little saying "My World is Brighter Because of You" by Studio G.  Gotta love those $1 stamps!  Then I tied some pretty Chocolate Cupcake Trendy Twine to go with all the nice pink and brown.

So who did I send this to?  Kim (my Design Team Coordinator) along with some goodies as a little thank you for helping me so much. 

I hope you liked my very first crafty project.  And some of you can get up off the floor from laughing so hard ;)

Have a great weekend, Trendy twiners!

Hugs, Lesley

  1. I love your tag note card! The colors are fun and I like the graph that you added to the tag, plus the twine looks really good too!

  2. Are you kidding? It's great!!! I've never even made a tag (or a layout for that matter) because for some reason going small, or large, both freak me out! I absolutely love that you pull out the little message and OMG that tape, well we know what I need to get soon! I hope you decide to create, and share, more soon!
