Just tagging along

Yes, you have guessed it, more tags, lol! My darling husband got me a Big Shot for my birthday and my boys got me some embossing folders and die cut thingies, and I finally got round to trying it out yesterday. It is so much fun! I couldn't resist embossing a couple of tags and also making some small decorative ovals, and you can't just have the bits lying about, you gotta make something, right?

But I am going to start with a tag I made a few days ago, just because the sun was shining, and I needed to see some bright Spring colours -

I used a scan of a vintage French seed packet label for the image, punched a pretty border and used a few little bits to embellish the tag. Happy, sunny colours, aren't they?

And then there are the embossed tags. On this first one I have also used the pretty oval die cut to frame the lovely little image -

The next one will surprise you a little, I should think, because it is so different to what I normally make. I had tried an embossing folder on a white tag, and I really liked it, so I decided to keep it all white. Can you imagine, me making a totally white tag? Well, I did make one, here it is -

I can see myself having oodles of fun with this little machine. As if I didn't have enough other stuff to do, lol.

I hope you are all having a grand weekend and are thoroughly enjoying doing whatever it is you are doing. Toodlepip, xxx

PS -

Hmmm, I really need to add something to this post. I have had such lovely comments from people, some have asked me questions, and I would dearly love to answer them, but when I click on reply, up comes the dreaded "", and then of course there is nothing I can do. It seems such a shame, and I would urge anybody to have their email addy on their blog profile so that you can be contacted. It would make me feel heaps better, and I don't want people to thinks that I am being rude not answering their question.

Having said all that, lol, of course sometimes I just forget to answer, and then you can give me a cyber kick up the butt and shout at me, lol!
