Home

There is no place like home especially on these awful days of wet and windy weather. Hope you are all wrapped up and cosy and warm.

Today I decided to do a project using up all the scraps I had in a box at the side of my desk from the past couple of weeks crafting as I really dont like to waste anything lol.

Hope you like

Lost in Thought

Hi all, I am on the design team at Mixed Up Creatables and this month its my turn to blog a project
Here’s how I made this tag, entitled ‘Lost in Thought’.
1. Cut a tag to the size 5.5” x 4”
2. Cover this with the Old Ledger Printable Sheet
3. Fussy cut out elements from Postcards, Gladys, Victorian Rose, Victorian Leaves.
4. Create a pouch at the bottom of the tag using a piece cut from the Antique Page Printable
5. Arrange the pieces you have cut out into a desirable layout on your tag.
6. I have then added further embellishments by die cutting some butterflies from the Antique Page sheet, adding some sisal and a little sentiment.
