I have always enjoyed being crafty. I remember getting really excited about stickers and fun stationary when I was little. Well its good to know that some things in life never change!

I was introduced to scrapbooking in 2005 and have been hooked ever since. My love of crafting has branched out to include DIY, projects, gardening, baking, and canning. I hope to share my projects here.

Friend Tag

Hi all,

Today I am sharing the next tag for my 52 Tags in 2012 Challenge over at Pause, Dream , Enjoy. You can learn all about it here.

The Challenge for this tag was to make a tag in your BFF's Style. I chose my two closest crafty friends for my inspiration

Missie, from Created by Missie who LOVES to use glitter.
Jan from Craft Place who makes the most FABULOUS flowers.

I love hanging out with these ladies. We have the best time, and I am always learning new things from them.

So here is my tag:
I precut all my base pieces, and then I just cut all the layers each week for the challenge. I Saved a file on my gypsy with all the base, layers and frames all sized accordingly, so I can just open up that file and pick this weeks paper to cut.

This week I am using papers from a DCWV Dazzle stack I found on the clearance rack at JoAnn's earlier in the week. It was quite the score! I am telling you, this paper cuts like BUTTER on the Cricut! I am definitely getting more of this paper. It is so sparkly and it does NOT leave glitter all over the place like other glitter papers. I do not like have having glitter all over my mat, or worse, inside my machine. I cut this with a blase depth of 4, single cut, with an older blade. The white Bazzil used for the base I ALWAYS have to cut twice to get a nice clean edge.

I would recommend you getting a piece and trying it out!

Here is my recipe for today's project:
Tag - Elegant Edges - Page 38 Oblong Shadow @ 5 in.
Flower - Flower shoppe - Page 16 -Fun 3 6X z@3In. , Fun4 @3 in, Fun 2 @ 3in and 2.5 in.
Bookplate - Fabulous Finds - Pg.82 @1.5in.
Stamp & Ink - Stampin' Up.
Gem and Brads from my stash
Papers: DCWV Dazzle in Green patterned and Pink solid, and Bazzil Bling in White. Green scrap from my stash.

Thanks for visiting today.

Have a Great and Crafty Day!
