More tags!!!

These tags are for the CSF tag swap, of which I am host for this month!

The first one uses a Tilda image (very kindly provided by my friend Andrea) I thought I'd try someting a bit more cute and cuddly than my usual stuff!

The second and third one use DCWV papers from Once Upon a Time stack. I had some offcuts from something Im making so thought I'd use them. The birds one uses TH stamps (no suprise there then!) and some epoxy stickers. The cat stamp is from Lost Coast Designs, the wings are from TH new 'Distressable Elements' CD.

Not sure why I've added words to them all, just in that kind of mood! :o)

Distressed tags

These are for a swap on the Lots to Do forum. The first one I used some stickers, crackle glaze, grunge board (as usual!) and, for a change, buttons!! I coloured the tags using Adirondack paint dabbers.

The second one I used Ranger distress inks and stamped it with Tanda stamps advert stamps. I then added a bit of mountboard and some charms.

Finally, for the third one I 'adapted' a tag copied from Tim Holtz. Again I used Adironadack dabbers for the colour, added a smaller tag shape, stamped with using Tim stamps and then used memory mist to 'age' it. Bit of ribbon and a quote later and tis done!!

Tim Holtz style valentine tags

More Tim Holtz style stuff!!!! Distress seems to be my mantra at the moment! These tags are for a swap on Crafting Corner. Im pretty chuffed with them, especially as I really struggle with hearts type stuff - especially as I have no stamps with them on!

The first one I used good old grunge board and covered half of it with crackle accents.

The second one I used a heart template and cut out hearts from hand made paper.

The last one I used a large rose stamp then ink it up to try and create more of an abstract look!!

Altered bottle caps

These are for a swap on Craft Swap forum. I love these, they are so fun and quick and easy to do. The 'love' one I have left as a blank but the other 2 I have added a keyring and a magnet.

Note books

I made these little note books using my trusty BIA machine (of course now I need a Dreamcutz to go with it!) The smaller one was inspired by a post I saw on Craft Swap forum (thanks Joy) and the larger one simply uses beer mats for covers. I covered them both in DCWV Once Upon A Time papers then added charms. The letter and flower motifs were from a kit from QVC.

Altered Art swap

These fabulous items are from a swap on the Lots to Do forum. The domino is from Sue, the green plaque from Caz and the little canvas's are from Sam
