Thrifty Thursday


GOOD MORNING & welcome to another "Thrifty Thursday"! If you are new to my blog, we alternate our Thursdays & make projects using all of our SCRAPS! For today, I made another tag using the 'my favorite stamp of the month' "Mixed Holiday Sentiments"! I LOVE this stamp set because it covers Halloween, Thanksgiving, Fall, Christmas & even New Year's! If you just need ONE stamp set to get you through the holidays, then this is the one for you! 
I had picked up some Fringe Scissors to do a project w/my son & I couldn't wait to use them on a crafty project! I was watching a cool video by Miss Heidi Swapp HERE & she shows us a few fun different ways on how & what to make w/these scissors! On one of her projects she made a ribbon using the fringe scissors & I LOVED it! Soooo, that is exactly what I did here on my tag! Of course, it isn't as pretty as hers was, but I still like how it came out! After I glued the fringe behind my circle die, I decided to layer it onto my rosette die! Then I used my med. stitched bow die, cut off the scallops to make the bottom part look like a ribbon! I had some scraps of that AWESOME burlap paper left, so I used my tag die, cut it out & adhered everything down using hot glue just to make sure it didn't go no where! ;) To make my tag a little sturdier, I cut another tag using a thicker card stock, then adhered it in the back of the burlap tag w/zip dry glue just to give it more support! I decided to add a few silver sequins so it could go w/my silver bell die! Instead of using black ink to stamp my sentiment, I used 'watering can' ranger ink so it won't look so harsh!

Here is one more pic of my tag so you can see all the fun dimension! 

Supplies used:
~ Blue pattern paper (my scraps)
~ May Arts Ribbon
~ Blue hemp twine
~ Warm Holiday Fun (bell)

Now onto my AWESOME design team! Don't forget to visit their blogs & leave them some love! :)



Well, I hope you were all inspired to use YOUR SCRAPS to create something SUPER CUTE!
Well, I "thought" I was going to get to do a video today, but that didn't happen :( I do have GOOD NEWS, my boys are almost caught up w/ALL their homework that they missed when they were out last week! Even though some of the teachers emailed them the homework, they still have more!
Anyways, THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH for stopping by & I hope you have a FABULOUS day my sweet creative friends! xoxo

P.S. Don't forget to play along w/our "Thanksgiving Challenge" that is going on right HERE!

Also, we are having a design team call for the new year! You can see details HERE!

  9. Beautiful tag, Miss Emma. I love the touch of elegance with the shiny silver bell and sequins. It looks especially great with the rustic background of burlap. So cute the way you made the blue ribbon with the Stitched Scallop Bow tails and the fringe looks great.
