I'm a big fan of Margie Romney-Aslett and her Girls' Paperie. :) The first time I saw her papers in my LSS I squealed. Out loud. Seriously. Maybe it's because I'm the mom of 3 boys and am surrounded by Legos, Hot Wheels and bouncing balls 24/7. Maybe I dont have enough pink in my life. Whatever the reason, I get my girl fix with her lovely collections. All of them. Love them. Her newest line, Tinsel & Twig is no exception! The colors! The patterns! Those snowflake embellies! Be still my heart! So much love.
I bought many sheets of the Tinsel & Twig paper. Many. I do my best work on a smaller scale, cards specifically. So I thought I would try 10 tags of Tinsel & Twig for a little blog project! I want to work with this paper, but with the business of the holidays time is short and layouts are few. The tags will be a good way to get my girl fix and use the product before Christmas 2011. :)
My first tag was featured yesterday in the Scrapbook News and Review 12 Days of Christmas newsletter. I am a new staffer there and am thrilled to have my first projects in this month's online Holiday Sampler.
Tinsel & Twig Tag #1
I actually used scraps from a layout that I did for SNR. I inked up a very white doily with some Antique Linen Distress Ink with a technique I picked up on Tim's Blog.
First, stamp your ink pad on the craft mat a few times:
Spritz some water over the ink:
Swipe the doily across the mat a couple times:
The plan is to have 9 more tags between now and Christmas, all made primarily with Tinsel & Twig paper.
I hope you will enjoy looking at them as much as I enjoyed making them! Thanks for stopping by!
