Group Photo

I was able to get a group picture of all the wonderful tags from the swap.
I normally reduce the file size so they images upload quickly but I left this one full size so you can click on it and see them with better detail.

Image Tags Swap

Stephanie hosts a image tag swap over at With a Grin. I was able to participate in her most recent one. I am just now getting around to posting the tags I made for the swap. The idea is to stamp two sets of ten tags each.

This is the first set I made. I really wasn't thinking clearly at all because this swap was for October and I really should have made mine with a Halloween theme...but oh well.

I added a smaller tag to each with another image stamped on it. Both images are Stampers Anonymous stamps....otherwise know as Tim Holtz stamps

Here is the second set of ten. Now I am not completely sure how her swap works but I thought I would get one back of each of my tags along with nine others for each group but I only got one of mine back and lots of other wonderful tags. Which is cool for me because then I get lots of fun tags.

The stamps for this tags were from Tim Holtz and 7Gypsies.

A close up of the smaller tag for the second set of tags. I hope you all enjoyed my tags as mush as I enjoyed all of yours. I will try to post pictures of the tags I received soon. I really miss my craft time since starting working outside the home, but sure appreciate the chances I do get.

Christmas Version of the Sunburst Mini

Here I have made another version of the Sunburst mini using the Deck the Halls Designer Series paper from Stampin Up.

For the cover trim I used my new Martha Stewart Holly and Berries punch to cut the Holly leaves. I then used a stylus to add a center groove and depth to the leaves. A Prima pointsettia completes the closure trim.

Here are the tags inserts. I used various embossing borders for the edges of each tag.

and here are the backs of the tags. I tried to include a journal spot on each along with some vintage styles stamped images. Stamped images are from Stampin Up and Tim Holtz.

I just love the way this book looks open. Below is a video of the mini if you want to check it out as well.
