Thinking of You

Today's tag is a simple reminder that you don't need a lot of tools, gadgets, and stuff to make something pretty in your craft room.  For this tag, I let the pattern paper do the "talking." I only added buttons, string, ribbon and a stamped sentiment (Stampin' Up - Sassy Salutations). The tag base was created using a the Stitched Journal Die from My Creative Time.

Love it!

I spent a few minutes doing some sorting in my craft room, and pre-cutting some papers with metal dies today. I love sorting and having extra ready-to-go cuts on hand.

Love these bright, fun colors together!

Enjoy your day!
:) Janis

  1. Such a fun tag Janis! I love too to cut out cuts from my metal dies. It helps to use up that scrap paper too! lol Hugs

  2. That tag is so pretty? You're right. Sometimes it's the colors or pattern choices you make that makes the project look good. <3 kim

  3. What a cute tag. Love the cluster of flowers in the corner with the added buttons and twine.
    Have a creative day.
