A Ginormous Tag with Nature Sketchbook!

Today I decided to do something just for me, not for any DT's, just something I wanted to do.  This is the result!

 While at Creativation in Phoenix, I  totally fell in love with these ginormous Tim Holtz tags.  This gal loves to make tags and what more could a tag love want but a ginormous tag??  Had to have them as soon as I got back home and I found them at the Funkie Junkie Boutique.  I used the middle size to make my tag which is about 6.5" x 12".

I will confess that I also fell in love with Tim's Distress Oxide inks and I started this tag by creating a background with the oxide inks, but that just wasn't the bright effect I was looking for so I grabbed up a piece of red burlap.

 It probably doesn't get a lot brighter than this red burlap and yellow trim!  😄

Of course I turned to my new favorite Graphic 45 collection, Nature Sketchbook to fussy cut this bright spring image.  Here in North Carolina we are currently having temps in the high 70's and even 80's.  I am so ready for spring now!

Some pretty Petaloo burlap blooms complete my tag.

I am entering my tag in the Frilly and Funky Out of the Cold challenge.  Details about the challenge here.  I'm ready for spring and I think these  bright colors sure tell that story!

Thanks for stopping by, I sure appreciate it!


  1. I saw this in the gallery at Frilly and Funkie and had to stop in to tell you how beautiful this is! I love your pop of red with the burlap and the soft yellows to show off this great G45 collection! I am from NC, too, on the coast. Now I am your latest follower! :):)

    1. Well....I'd like to be, but blogger gives me an error 403 message-perhaps he doesn't like my photo! :(:(

    2. Hi Sara, thank you so much for you kind words!! I am sorry you aren't able to follow, sometimes Blogger can be so frustrating!

  2. Wow! Two ginormous thumbs up for this gorgeous ginormous tag. The texture is just out of this world and the colors and images just pop! The fussy cutting is off the charts, too. You should play more often, as this is just bursting with joy and creativity! Thanks so much for joining the fun at the Frilly and Funkie "Out of the Cold" challenge!
