Wanna See Another Tag ?????

Yep, that's right... I've gone and done it again and made myself another pretty tag.

After having cleared off some of my crafting table last weekend, I was actually able to sit at the table today and let my creative juices flow.

My tag today was created using a lovely image that the kind and generous Rhea @ http://sweetnshabbyroses.blogspot.com/ had shared on her blog some time ago which I had copied and saved in a folder on my computer for use someday in the future.

Once I had chosen the image I was going to use, I looked through my collection of scrapbook and matstack papers and found a piece of coordinating matstack paper from "The Whimsy" collection of papers made by DCNV. These are awesome collections of heavy papers that can be purchased in either the full 12x12 scrapbook size pads or in my case, the smaller matstack size pads that are 4.5 x 6.5 inches in size. The smaller pads I am realizing are just the perfect size for creating tags as less paper is wasted and you end up with less scraps of paper.

A new cutting mat (purchased at Office Depot of all places as I could not find one like I wanted at either Michael's or JoAnne's), some glitter and glue, buttons, flowers and ribbon too ....

And "Voila", the finished tag.....

Just like my first tag, I finished off the bottom edge with some crepe paper and lace trim.

Isn't the matstack paper pretty? I love the colors of blue and green together and they compliment the vintage image so nicely as does the ribbon I used.

Don't look too closely at my uneven lines of glitter. Who knew that trying to add glue in a straight line around the edges of the image would be so difficult, especially when your house starts shaking and vibrating horribly because of the asphalt crews just outside my house who from the sounds and feel of it, must be using a jackhammer to break up the old driveway in the townhouse behind me (see yesterday's post on that project).

Back side of the tag using the small leftover piece of sheet music that I used on my first tag ....

And there my friends is my second completed tag. I'm already getting started on my third tag. I've chosen the image and papers I am going to use for that one, but I am still trying to decide on how I want all of the elements laid out on the tag. I promise I'll share it with you as soon as it's completed.

I would also like to thank Rhea for sharing her wonderful vintage clip art images with us here in blogland. I'll be using more of her images in my other tags, including the next one you'll see.
