For you.... Cute Tree Kraft Tag! And some Updates!

Hello Crafty Friends! I will be doing some traveling over the next two weeks and will not have internet access while I am away.. *GASP* What will I do??

I have several posts on pre-post for some upcoming challenges and design team projects along with a super fun hop. I hope you will join in on all the fun that we have going on. I will catch up on all my visiting when I return the first week of May. I hope I will have maybe one more project toward the end of the week to share before I leave. I will miss everyone!

While I should be packing, I just had to sneak in a quick CAS tag, Now I consider this CAS  compared to how I create!And it took me under 10 minutes.

I have also been trying hard to use my supplies that have taken over! So my entire project is made from my scrap cardstock pile. I also used a background stamp that I bought used from someone in 2009 that I never used before! I also took on the task of organizing my buttons!! And was easily able to find just the perfect buttons to add!

Tag (from my scrap pile) was cut using Plantin Schoolbook Cricut Cartridge
Tree is cut from Pooh and friends
I added the flowers using a border punch and added dots of baby blue Stickles
Tim Holtz Distressed ink for my background and inking of my twine
The Twinery Twine Peapod
SNEAK PEAK Alert!! For you mini stamp from Docerela Creations

    Great job on those scraps, I'm a hoarder so they just get tossed in a crate until I have time to go through them... LOL!

  9. What? No Internet access for 2 weeks!? I don't think I'd survive. I hope you have a great time, Carri, whatever you're doing. Your tag is real cute, CAS like u said. I just noticed your comment about Blog Lovin, which I'd like to discuss further when you're back. I don't really understand what's changing, so I better read up on this. Where can I find some info? I've always used my dashboard for visiting and hope I don't have to change that. Yikes!
