Tag You're It 42

Friday, March 4, 2016

TGIF!  I can't believe I did it but I managed to use patterned paper on each project that I made this week!  I've got oodles and oodles of patterned paper and it's probably a pipe dream to think that I'll use it all one day, but I challenged myself to use it more often and somehow managed to use it for the last four projects. I'm pretty sure that I won't use it EVERY day in the future - insert sheepish grin here - but I'll tell you it sure felt good to cut into some of that paper!

Today there's a new challenge at Tag You're It with a tag designed by Marybeth Lopez and it's going to make you think of spring!

I had the same tag die that Marybeth used so I embarked on a CASE of her tag.  I switched up some of the colors and added some texture behind the flowers with embossing paste and a stencil.  There's a "touchy feely" challenge going on at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge and they are looking for texture so I'm going to add this over there as well.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a chance to check out the inspiration from the design team at Tag You're It.  I hope to see you in the gallery!

I have drawers full of the stuff, lol! Some of it will go into the last few scrapbooks I will ever make in my lifetime ever, but some will be saved (read: hoarded) for cards! Love your CASE of Marybeth's tag. The sweet, simple sentiment, the texture, those gorgeous flowers, and that die.... All made into this pretty tag. Just love it! Bev
