Made From Scratch



I created a tag today, inspired by these adorable tags by Tracy at Tag You're It #23.


I love how simple and graphic Tracey's tags are.  I was inspired by the simple apple die cut on Tracey's tag that required no stamping to indicate what it was, the adorable clothes pin and the twine.

I went searching through my stash for a die whose silhouette would be immediately recognizable for what it was, and decided to use this cat from Paper Smooches.  I die cut the cat once from black card stock, and then cut the eyes out of green card stock and inlaid the green eyes into the black cat.

I am also using this tag to put my name forward for the Design Team Call at Tag You're It.



I am also entering this tag at Paper Smooches Sparks, where the challenge this week is Anything Goes, and Shopping Our Stash #205, where the challenge is Cute Critter Alert.





Thanks for Visiting
