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.
