Birthday Tags

Hello!  I've been busy lately working on a project for my daughter-in-law.  My two little granddaughters seem to be going to birthday parties on a weekly basis and so I made a collection of birthday tags for Katherine to have in a cute box, ready to tie to any gift.

Here's the group - 30 of them!

I am adding a collection of colored twine in the box to tie the tags to the gift.  

Here are the individual tags.  I used manila tags covered with various papers. The tags are big enough that the little girls can write a birthday message on the back. The images are all digi stamps and are perfect for a project like this because I could make the images the perfect size for the tag!


I hope you are having a fabulous summer!

In Sympathy

Yesterday was so hot, the only thing really to do was stay in and stamp.  I'm a very logical girl.  LOL

I looked at my box of cards and found that I don't have any sympathy cards and although it was the 4th, a day of celebration, I took to the task.

As always, beautiful papers make it easy....

The first card background was from Plumeria (Basic Grey).  I stamped the sentiment (My Sentiments Exactly) right on the paper and then added the little pearls and the butterfly (Taylored Expressions).
The wings of the butterfly are glitterfied with Antique Linen Distress Stickles.

The second card uses the same paper line for the frame.  The image, Botanical Silhouettes (Papertrey Ink) was an anniversary set. 

I hope I don't have to use these for a long long time, but it's good to have them on hand.

Have a great day!  Stay cool!
