...Tag Swap... i'm sharing with you our latest Tag Swap...the theme for this month was chosen by May 'Vintage Romance'...
...I have to confess that this Tag was not what i'd originally made for our swap, you see the original along with another got my cup of tea all over it (never again will i have my cuppa on my desk) so frantically I had to start again and knock up 4 more slightly different ones...

...I used a Texture Fades on the whole Tag which I then distressed with Old Paper...a roughed up scrap of burlap was glued down...the crumpled brown paper heart was distressed with Black Soot, Barn Door & Walnut...

...I had a rather lovely piece of fabric leftover from another started off beige with pretty little stars (see woyww 141) it was randomly spritzed with Patina, Tattered Leather & Red Velvet Glimmer mist then screwed up into a ball and left to dry on my radiator!...I pinked the edges then shaped into a bow then added a small embossed wooden heart...

...the rather lovely sentiments at the top & bottom of the Tag are Whimsy Stamps from their set called 'Time Flies Sentiment Set' ...they were inked in Barn Door...

...thankyou for dropping by today I hope you like...

...nearly all the products used on this Tag can be bought in-store or online at


  1. Oh poor you...I just did the same thing! I just posted about spilling a diet coke all over my wedding layout! Acccck!

    I love the new tag though. It is so pretty. I'm amazed at how you can make a little scrap of fabric look so lovely. I am going to have to break down and buy some of those glimmer mists. They seems to really dress up everything they touch.

  2. Hello!

    Great tag - you are so creative and the result is lovely! Wishing you a happy weekend!
