I've been making great progress with my tags; I've even managed a few kids designs! I think this cute robot would be perfect for a little girl's birthday. I especially like the band of sparky pink and red rhinestones. The tape is something I forgot I had but I'm so glad I found it because I love the look of it, and it's a different way of attaching something to a card. Will definitely be on the look-out for more :-)

A little while ago I mentioned I was making cards for friends who have babies due this month and next. The cards are similar so I'll only blog one of them. This is Quinn's card. Right now I have a "thing" for banners and I couldn't resist adding one across the top of the card. Also, the little hand-cut triangles are a great way of using up scraps. The baby picture came from a gift bag that I pulled apart and cut up (yay recycling!) and the trims and buttons come from my seemingly unending supply. I'm not sure what baby Quinn will make of it, but I have a feeling his mummy will love it :-)

Dreams Are

Another tag... with stamping! I love this little tag; I think the colours are especially pretty. I'm well on my way to 50 tags - just 10 to go now. I spread them all out on my desk today and found that I have heaps of girly designs but very few that would be suitable for kids. So that's my next task: raiding my supplies and brainstorming a few kids tags :-)

Have Fun

Here's another little tag that I've made for my friend Amy. At last count I'd made 34 tags. I hope to get 50 done by Christmas. As with all the other tags in the collection, it's a simple design which makes for easy (and speedy!) replication. You'll notice this tag has some stamping: most of the tags I've created so far have no stamping whatsoever, so I'm going to make a concerted effort in the future to use more stamps (even if it is a bit messier and involves a little more work :-)

10 Quick Cards

As the title says, these are cards-on-the-quick! I made this set for Cardmaking, Stamping & Papercraft's 10 Quick Cards feature, but they'd be a fun project to make at home - it's always good to have a few cards on hand for emergencies :-) They're super easy to put together and can be created with any card and paper scraps you have lying on your craft table. I used kraft cardstock because it goes with everything (and I like the look of it) but coloured card would look nice too.

Stamps - Inkadinkado
Ink - Versa Magic midnight black
