My First Tag

Hello everyone! I am back to share a tag I have made. I created this for a giveaway/challenge that Bethany, who is BAcraftygirl on YouTube, is having in honor of her new blog Ordinarily Crafty and having reached 500 subscribers on her YouTube channel

So anyways, I wanted to share with you my tag since it is the first tag I have ever made. I think it turned out cute.
The challenge was to make a tag or a card that used 2 stamps and 1 button. I decided to make the tag since I have not made one before (as I said above). I cut the tags on my Cricut. I used a mix of scraps that I tore into strips I had in black, white and pink. I stamped the girl from the Greeting Farm Sweet and Toxic set, I also used the sentiment "Sweet & Toxic" on the little tag, so those were my two stamps. I coloured her with my Copic Markers and paper pieced her dress. I the put her on foam tape and placed her on a paper doily that I had. I decided that I wanted to make some small yoyo flowers and that was how I would incorporate my button. I made a small black with a pink button and a small white lace with a gray button. I the used some lace and loopy ribbon that I have to finish it off. I am pretty please with the finished product.

I hope everyone is having a good week. I am definitely looking forward to the weekend!

Birthday Card Share

Hello everyone! I am back again with a card to share with you. I have been tired lately so I haven't been crafting as much as normal. I think I am lacking in motivation. I am working on the photo wallet still (I am not sure if I mentioned this before). When I am done I will share pictures, because I am proud of it so far.

So here is the card I made. I used the Greeting Farm stamp Fairy Anya. I bought it off someone on Splitcoaststampers. I also got two more Greeting Farm stamps from the same person, Mermaid Anya and the I Do set. I got great deals on them so I was excited. I also got some new to me Kraftin Kimmie stamps from Splitcoast as well that I am trying to come with a project for. Anyways, I coloured her with my few Copic markers, which is one reason she has pink hair. I also added Stickles to her wings because fairies need bling. I used a sentiment from another fairy set I have, which I think is a Pink Cat Studio set. Paper in the background is from Michaels and  the green paper was kindly given to me when I bought some stamps off someone on Splitcoast.  The flower is from the dollar bin at Michaels and the brad is Memory Makers. The card base is just one of the ones from WalMart that I have. My friend liked it so I was happy.

My interest lately has been piqued by making actual scrapbook pages. I have been watching some videos where people share what they have made and it has made me want to try it. I might get a kit on my next pay day and try it out. Does anyone have any scrapbooking idea websites they would like to share? I would appreciate it. I have also been longing for some of the Some Odd Girl stamps, but I haven't found any used yet. I think they are so cute! It's just a little out of my budget right now, shipping to Canada is a little expensive too. Oh well, hopefully someday soon.

Anyways, I hope everyone is having a great weekend. Looking forward to catching up with my Blogger friends! :)
