Today I have a tag that I made using Unity Stamps!

On Monday morning, I will have pick a winner for a free stamp set from Unity Stamp Co.! It will be their choice of one of the following:

For this tag I started with a pre cut tag from Basic Grey, and cut it a bit shorter. I stamped these flowers and the rocking chair from Unity’s July 2011 Kit of the Month. 

 The flowers, I stamped and then colored and cut out, adhered to the card and then stamped, colored and cut out extra buttons from the same flower stamps. Then put them together with adhesive foam and put on the tag.  

The lace is a great off white and I think helps with the feel of the tag and the ribbon is a vintage pink ribbon. 

 For the middle I stamped the rocking chair on cardstock and then folded the top over (square like a matchbook), of course using my fav chalk to age the edges of the “matchbook” and edges of the tag too. 

 I think it would look great on a baby girl page, I wish I had time today to make a baby girl page for you, but as it was… my original planned project, sunk into the dark depths of the scrap box, and my second attempt did so as well. I persisted and kept trying and here is the result. I suppose, I could have used different stamps, or chose something else to showcase today that may have been easier… but I had stamped these flowers and really wanted to use them on a project today. I feel great about keeping with it until something worked! : ) 

 So, today… as with every other day… my hope for you is that you do not give up. Take a deep breath, and maybe a chocolate chip cookie break, and try one more time. You can do it! 

 Thank you for stopping by! 

 Scrap box: noun – the bin in our home that I keep scraps and misfit items that the boys (and I) are allowed to repurpose for projects at their (or my) free will. So hard to throw things away! Reduce, reuse, recycle!! :D
