Fun Friday Tree Tag's with Pam

 Inspired by the upcoming season, I thought it was TREE TAG TIME
The first thing I did was pick a color pallet. I used pre-made tags to mount. But the rest is scraps and bits from the stash. And yes, that is a used, dry tea bag.
The above photo are the two starter tags. The one on the right is just covered with a piece of pre printed fabric. {Prima I think} The left is how I tore and stacked scraps along one side, then finished the exposed edge with a piece of vintage music sheeting.
I wanted to mute it a bit, so I first used a gesso white wash, then spritzed with a shimmer.
For the tree, I tore as above in layers. Then I glued just the edges together to form the base.
I folded a scrap piece of paper and free cut my basic tree outline.
Next I flipped over the base, and used my ink to outline the shape.
Next I fussy cut the edges and adhered to front of tag base.
Added the rub on words some ribbon,a rusted metal star and was done!
For the button tree, I tried to pick rows of similar size mother of pearl buttons from the stash jar. I set it up on the table first, then added liquid glue dots and centered them to the cloth card background. I also took the time to orient all of them the same. A few beads in between the buttons.
A silver top button, Dark mother of pearl for the stump, ribbons and done!
 For this last one, I used scraps from both of the above projects. More stash ribbon and DONE!
How will you decorate your tree this year?

Clip Board Class with Nicole December 7

The holidays are here and I have a fun Mini Holiday Clipboard to create. This clipboard is perfect to hold a gift card, hand in a gift not incorporate on a layout. The Big Ticket hangs in place allowing for a personal sentiment. Let's keep things festive with a few creative techniques you can use on your Holiday cards or crafts. Here we will use distress markers, distress crayons and sprays. It wouldn't be a Christmas craft without some snow to emboss. I hope you'll join me for this fun festive daytime class.
Teacher: Nicole
Date: December 7th
Time: 11:00am
Cost: $35, (due upon booking)
Please bring all the usual scissors, liquid glue, cutter. If you have white gesso, distress inks, spray stains in festive colour a bring them. Also distress crayon black soot and matte medium for a fun technique. I'll be bringing everything you'll need and I share too. Please contact me at or the store to sign up. Space is limited and bring a friend. Crafting is always more fun with friends.
