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!

Love Heart

I made this tag for an upcoming tag swap at  Inky Fun Stampers this month and I thought I would share it with you. 

I used some cardboard from the recycle bin to cut out my tag then torn some of the paper on it to reveal inside of the paper.  I liked the effect.  I then used a couple of colours of Tim Holtz paint dabbers to colour the tag.   I then stamped the tag with a script stamp called Italian Scrip by Hero Arts. The butterflies are die cut from some of my gell print paper.

The hearts were drawn  and cut out. The back heart I used some blue paint, shabby blue embossing enamel then doodle some dots on it.  The front heart was cut out of  another piece of gell print I had made and I stamped the word "love" using a old Stampin Up stamp I have in my collect.   I also doodled some dots along the edge of the heart.  To complete my tag I  added some ribbon. 

I am entering my tag in the following challenges:
