Welcome to my crafting blog. After retirement, my husband and I moved to a beautiful location in the Okanagan area of British Columbia. I love all paper crafts including mixed media, journaling and cards. I also dabble in papermaking, photography, fibre art, and altered books. I am an active member of several card and mixed media groups and on the design team of several challenge blog. I love the world of blogging, it has opened many doors for me. My favourite quote is by Maya Angelou. “You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.” I hope you join me in my search for my creative side. Thanks for stopping by!

Envelope Punch Tag Book

A friend challenged me to make a Envelope Punch Tag book.  It was lots of fun to make.  Without a set theme I had to think about it a lot and come up with a theme.  I came across this quote on Pinterest "Jump you might just fly".  I thought it in my make an interesting title to my book.

I used a lot of my older stamps and supplies to make my tag book.  I hope she enjoys it.  The supplies I used for the book are:

Envelope punch
Dragonflies - Michael Strong rubber stamps
Flowers by Scrappy Cat
Butterfly punch (on back) – Tim Holtz
Flying Hummingbird by Designs by Ryan
Eagle in Tree – The Old Island Stamp Company
Butterfly – punch by Martha Stewart
Large tag – Tim Holtz die
Small tag – Marvy punch
Paper - Basic Gray, Gelli Plate scraps
Distress Inks
Copic markers 

Unmounted and I have forgotten who made them
Eagle Flying
Bird stamp
Also from my stash  
Fabric Ribbon
Quotes – from Pinterest and Google searches

 I hope everyone will have sometime today to be creative.
