Hi you all! It's been a wild and rather wet day here today, just right for staying home and playing!
Over at Out of a Hat Creations the theme this week is to make a tag-book.
I used grey coredinations paper to cut the tags, and some stiff cardboard from the back of a paper pad for the covers. The tags have been covered with some DP from DaisyDs, which I think fits well to the tea-time theme, and to the little tea-pot and tea-cup buttons I have used as embellishments. The alphas are from a giant packet of felt letters from the € shop. I fixed an eyelet into each tag to make the holes a bit more stable. I have only done the front and back covers, the rest will be for another time.

I made the album this morning after getting up. When I was finished I looked at the clock, and saw that it was just after 8 am. I think I must have woken up early! And this time the postman was not to blame!
I am also linking to Simon Says Stamp and Show - buttons
And these two tags are for the FSC 'Tags' Challenge. The tags have been made from coredinations paper overlaid with some Prima paper. After distressing the edges, I stamped some French script over the background using forest moss DI, which is unfortunately hard to see. Let's put it positively - it blended beautifully with the background, as was, of course, intended. The next layer of stamping was done with archival black, using various French words and symbols - I don't know who these stamps are from, I got them from EBAY! The smaller images on the top panels have been stamped with a mini Paris set from Chocolate Baroque, and the Paris post stamp is from Artemio. The heart was made in a mould - mold for all on the other side of the big pond - using wax from candle ends, melted in the melting pot, and coloured with Inka gold in gunmetal grey. I hot-glued a large bead to it to thread the ribbon through. I usually get my challenges done earlier, but I was convinced that I still had another week, until I looked last night and saw the error of my ways. Convictions are not always reality!
The collage has been made from some pics I took this week on my balcony and window ledge.
Have a great Sunday, take care, and thanks a lot for coming by!
