Having Fun with Tags!

Happy Tuesday, Friends!  I hope that you are enjoying your summer.  It has certainly been a hot and humid one here in New England!  Next year, I think I need to invest in air conditioning for my stamping room.  It has been unbearable in there...ugh! 

I have a special tag to share with you today for this month's TCP Tuesday Challenge.  (For details of the challenge and to play along, please visit Alma's Blog.)  I found this handy dandy tutorial for an easel type tag awhile back and thought that this would be the perfect time to try it out.    

I started off with PJ Bear from the Peeking set from The Cat's Pajamas.  I just love using this set for birthdays.  PJ is colored up with Copic Markers (E21, E23, E25, and E51) and then I paper pieced his present with some paper scraps from My Mind's Eye and then I fussy cut him out.  To make my easel tag, I used the TCP Luggage Tags CutUps.  I dressed it up with a few buttons from my stash, some TCP Rose Seam Binding, and some TCP Peppermint Divine Twine.

Thanks so much for stopping by to visit with me.  Enjoy the rest of your day!  Until next time...Toodles!  :D

Together with TCP Tuesday!

Happy Tuesday, Friends!!  I hope that you are enjoying your summer.  We are in the middle of another heat wave here in New England!  My little family and I were lucky enough to escape to Disney World for a few days when school got out and it has been hot and humid here ever since we've come home!  As always, it was a magical time!
Have you been playing along in this month's TCP Tuesday Challenge?  This time around the challenge is...Tags.  You can either make a tag or add a tag to a project.  Be creative and join us!  You can find all of the details to play along on Alma's Blog.   
Today, I added a tag to my creation.  I made the tag using the TCP Toppers CutUps and the TCP Queen of Hearts CutUps.  I also added a few buttons from my stash, some Seam Binding, and a little bit of machine stitching to my tag. 
I love this TCP set for anniversary cards.  It is called Ewe Complete Me.  The month of July brings about a few anniversaries for family and friends, including my own wedding anniversary!!!  This fun couple is colored up with Copic Markers (BG72, BG75, C1, C2, C3, Y000, and Y11) and then I fussy cut them out.
I used some new papers from My Mind's Eye, and then I added some more machine stitching.  My circle accents are made with brads and the circle cut out from the Pinwheels CutUps
Thanks so much for stopping by for a visit.  I hope that you'll join the Cat Pack and get crafty with this month's challenge.  Enjoy the rest of your day and stay cool!  Until next time...Toodles!  :D
