I love all paper crafts including mixed media, journaling and cards. I also dabble in papermaking, photography, fibre art, and altered books.

It is Blog Hop Time at Yahoo Group Enjoy Michael Strong Stamps

This blog hop is all about Holiday tags and is also a scavanger hunt. Collect a letter from each blogs and once you have all the letters , make a wish out of them and email your answer to Hetty privately at: buzzy4you@hotmail.com NOT in the comment! Hetty will pick a winner on Wednesday the 7th of December. Prize: of course a Michael Strong stamp.

I do not at this time own any Michael Strong Christmas themed rubber stamps so this hop was more enjoyable for me because I had to search my imagination for some unconventional holiday tags.

I used Michael’s Cloisonné fish to create my Jinggle Fish. I thought he was kind of cute.

I used three of Michael’s Cloisonné triangles to create my Christmas tree and then I coloured it with my metallic rub ons and added some bling.

To make these tags I used parts of the Cloisonné frames that I had in my stash from previous projects along with some die cuts and ribbon.

For the final tag I used the Cloisonné cat and added a tree and a couple of sentiment stamps and fibre that I had in my stash.

My blog letter for this scavenger hunt is "L'.

The next Blog to visit is Kathie Mcguire's
