About Me

Okanagan, BC, Canada
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!

Road Trip Tag

I made this tag and envelope for a tag swap at Inky Fun Stampers this week.    The swap was to create a tag with numbers in the background.   My numbered background was a embossing folder with ruler markings on it. I first added distress inks to the tag and spritz them with a little water.  Next I put the tag in the embossing folder. Once I had the tag embossed I ran a walnut distress ink pad over the numbers to highlight them. 

To complete my tag I added some gears, brads, fabric bow, stamp, embossed bus ticket and a sentiment.   The envelope for the tag was made with my envelop punch. 

Thank you for stopping by to take a look at my project.  Have a creative day.
