Tag...You're It!

Our fearless leader at My Sheri Crafts, Sheri, is challenging us to feature a tag in our project. I made a tag for the handmade gift bag for a swap tomorrow. I am part of a local group of crafters who meet every two months for lunch and to swap. I used paper from Craft Smith and I have an ice-cream theme for all the handmade goodies. The theme for the swap is "Sweet Thang" and the items for swaps are: a bottlecap charm, a card, and a maker's choice, all packaged nicely (hence the bag with the tag). I also included pictures of what's going inside the bag for those of you who are curious. I have not covered the bottlecaps with the acrylic cover yet since it causes glare. The ice-cream truck is a battery-operated tealight holder.

All cuts are from SVG Cuts :-)

Nevermore Haunted Cottage

Our Design Team Sister Raquel from My Sheri Crafts challenged us to make a Halloween project for treats, bags or any cute projects. I was so excited when I made this Haunted Cottage from SVG Cuts using the Nevermore Paper Packet since it features two favorites of mine--Steampunk and Halloween! I used black cardstock for my base and inked it up with White Daisy Exclusive Inks Stamp Pad. I inked the edges of the designer paper with Cocoa Exclusive Inks Stamp Pad. The windows had vellum under it. The roof was stamped with images from Steampunk Scoundrels. Now all my cottage needs is an electronic tealight and it's all set for Halloween!

Pretty In Pink

I have family members and friends who have battled or are still battling cancer. I'm hosting our challenge and I wanted to spotlight Breast Cancer Awareness month. Pink is also a celebratory color, so let's celebrate life and lend our support to those who are fighting for theirs.

I colored a digital image from Slinky Tart with Copic markers. The artist is Tamara van Wijk. She makes the cutest pin-ups that are so much fun to color. The card base is from DCWV and I added some word stcikers from Tim Holtz, crystals from Recollections and some flowers from Recollections and The Paper Studio.

Please join our challenge at My Sheri Crafts and let's all lend our support in fighting the big C!
