Sunny Days Ahead

Hi, everyone! Thanks for stopping by to see what I've been up to lately. I love reading all your comments!

Today's Tag

I went through some of my scraps last week and ran them through the Big Shot with some Metal Dies to sort of downsize the beast and have a stash of easy to grab mats and tag bases. I love doing this. Makes it look like I have actual craft supplies at the ready instead of an overflowing scrap mess in my drawer or box. 

These were all die cut using My Favorite Things stitched dies.

I grabbed one of these to use for today's tag!

Miss Kate Cuttables (MKC), So Stinkin' Cute (sun and grass layers - die cut and paper pieced)
I did stretch the grass some in the silhouette software. Also, I added a rectangle and welded that to the darker grass in the background to make it taller.

MKC, Apple Tree (print and cut)

My Favorite Things, Zig Zag stitched rectangle die
Green layer added for matting tag
Ribbon stapled between tag and matting layer so that you can't see the staples on the front of the tag.
