Scrapping Woman found alive and well, with paper and glue.

It has been too many days since my last post. Many things have kept me away, from being sick to being swamped, but I have managed to keep crafting throughout most of this time. I have lots of sharing to get caught up on, so I'll start with  now and go from there....

Today, well yesterday really, since it is 2am Sunday now, I completed a set of tags for a Thanksgiving tag banner swap my Columbus Scrap group is doing. I am so excited about this swap and my tag turned out so cute. It did require much creative pondering to get it to a form that I was happy with though.  Thursday night (when I actually created the initial tag design) I was wondering if it was ever going to feel *finished*, if ya know what I mean.

So for this swap, we're doing an idea that I think came from 2Peas originally. Each person participating takes one of the letters from the word THANKFUL and creates 10 tags using that letter. Once swapped, we'll each have the entire word in tags and can assemble a banner of the word for a holiday decoration. I think they will be so cute! I'll post a photo of the completed banner after the 18th, which is when we swap the tags. I had the letter "A", and my tag background was to be done in dark red. Here's my result...



Cute? I sure think so.  Hope the recipients do too.

The DP came from the clearance rack at HL. SCORE @ 20cents a sheet! The border punch used is a MS that I found on clearance too.  I used my Cricut, with the Keystone cartridge to cut the letter "A".

Oh..and as for scraps and stash elements...

The CS is so richly textured and is from a Art pad in the stash.The leaves I found in the bottom of drawer, the flowers, brads, and buttons are from my stash from forever ago...and the wheat-like stalks behind the leaves...that is a Starbucks Hand Protector that I cut into tiny strips!
