Feeling Nautical

It’s tag time!  The theme for the August tag swap is nautical and I had a brain freeze on this one for a while, coupled with feeling under the weather due to Gilbert the Gall Stone mucking me around.  I had a light bulb moment as I was clearing out some paper and had some retired sea street which was about to hit the shop section that you can find here on the blog.  Needless to say, it’s not made it there but on my tags!  I have also used some of the lovely pompom trim, I thought it looked like some waves, and stapled that on to the tag.  I was going to glue it but I couldn’t find my red tape!

Then I had a blank moment and went through various drawers and stamp sets looking for something else and the sailing ship stamp, retired ages ago, came out to play, otherwise it may have ended up being the sailing ship in the Traveler stamp set with a bit cut off!  I was thinking of adding more to the tags, but I think these are just right, clean and simple.  I hope you like them (the ones being sent out have the ribbon tab!).

Tag Swap

Playtime in the crafting cave, the theme for the tags for the July swap is ‘holiday’.  Here are my offerings, it’s that llama (alpaca!) coming out to play again and I have also found some scraps to use up!

Stampin’ Up! a birthday fiesta

It’s time to bring out the llamas (alpacas) for some crafting playtime.  This is a fabulous set, and today it has been featured in the crafting cave.  I love the llama and the cactus and having the banner being in the framelits which coordinate with the stamp sets, is much easier than mucking around with punches.  Apart from the ‘happy birthday’ sentiment, the rest of the stamps are from the birthday fiesta stamp set.  If you like the happy birthday, this is in the butterfly basics set.

The set comes as a bundle if you have a big shot or similar which makes cutting out the llama and cactus so much easier.    You can see the whole product suite on my Stampin’ Up! website (here).  I hope you like them 🙂
