About Me

My photo
I am a stay-at-home mom. I have been married to my handsome and wonderful husband for over 14 years. Right now he's battling stomach/esophagus cancer. So I do my best to craft when I can. I have two wonderful boys. My oldest, Garett, is 24 and served 5 years in the Navy. He's been home since the beginning of the year (2014). We are very proud of him. My youngest, "DJ", is 13 and in the 8th grade. I have two Border Collie mix dogs (Koda and Rugu), one Calico cat (Hydie), one orange Tabby cat (Bosley), one Tea Cup Chihuahua (Gigi...I LOVE her sooo much), a Chiweinnie (Lily....sweetest dog ever), and a Jack Russell/Chihuahua (Connor....AAALL boy).

The Bunny Hop blog hop!!

To start at the beginning...click HERE


Hey everyone!  Thanks for stopping by.  If you are here from Kimberly's Blog Site then you are on the right track.

My project that I created is a tag that you can attach to an Easter basket or gift...or wherever you think would need that PERFECT touch!


Supplies used and basic instructions: Tim Holtz Tag and Bookplates Die from Sizzix to cut out the tag, then I covered the tag with the print paper from Wilton (see picture below of paper). I sanded the edges and lightly sanded the center. Next I cut out a tag using the Cricut Tags, Bags, Boxes & More. I used my Gypsy to make the tag the right size to fit the stamp phrase. Then I used Cricut Simply Charmed for the chicks. I designed the chicks on my Gypsy so that they were 2 inches tall. I stamped my phrase on the tag using Joy's Life stamps (see picture below with a link to Joy's site). In the holes of the tag, I placed two flower brads. I cut out the "chick" letters from a sticker set and adhered them to chipboard and cut them out. I used foam tape to give the letters a lift. I assembled the chicks and adhered them in place with foam tape. One of the felt flowers didn't have anything in the center so I used a Twinkle Jewel for the center (see picture below for a link to web site). Then I adhered the flowers to the tag. I cut the bakers twine (that I got from The Twineryall the same size and threaded it through the hole of the tag. Before I tightened it up, I threaded bunched up tulle (lavender and yellow) through the twine.  I added a little scrap flower as a charm.


Crafter's Square
Flower & Lace Trim
from Dollar Tree
Wiltons Memories
of the Heart
Scrapbook Paper
Stamps used are
from Joys Life.
She has several styles.
The one I used is
 Yummy Pun Stamps
I used a Twinkle Jewel

And that's how my tag was made :)  Thank you for stopping by.  But before you leave, I have a nice little giveaway (!!!!!BLOG CANDY!!!!!).  To be eligible, you must first follow my blog and then leave me a message with a way to contact you.  I will announce the winner on Monday afternoonish.  The winner will receive everything that is in the pictures below, including the items needed to make the same tag (minus the word "Chick" because I don't have any of those stickers and different brads)!!
