Scrappy Spring Tags and a Giveaway


Who else is excited that it's almost Spring? Not that it's been a particularly bad Winter (OK wettest February on record in the PNW)  but there's something about Spring...the sense of freshness and renewal (probably associated with longer brighter days and things sprouting from the ground) that's invigorating. 

One of my 2017 challenges to myself was to work outside my usual color palette. Another was to use up things I have in my stash, especially when it comes to my paper collection and paper scraps. Those came together this weekend when I worked on some tags just because that was what I was in the mood to do. No rhyme. No reason. 


Aren't they Spring-y? 




I went through my paper scraps and pulled out a bunch of coordinating Spring-y scraps to play with. 


Got out my favorite tool for small projects, the Xyron 2.5 sticker maker, and cut out some tags on my Silhouette. 

I think the reason I love making tags so much I there's no plan. I just like tearing papers, seeing what goes together, embellishing them w/ bits and pieces. 


I used some paper flowers, punched some more from glitter paper scraps, added bits of washi tape ( glittery and otherwise) and some adhesive pearls. I think I'm happiest when I'm making for the sake of making. Ya know? These put me in a really good mood. And what's the best thing to do when you're in a good mood? SHARE! 

So I'm giving them away. Two sets of eight. With Spring holidays like Easter and Mother's Day approaching, or Spring birthdays, showers etc. who can't use a tag to dress up a gift? 

Here's how to enter. The giveaway will run through Friday 3/17!

I love the beautiful weather of course. It's the most tolerable season in Texas. Everything is new.

So pretty and springy! It is fun when there is no set plan and you can just make it up as you go. Thank you for sharing at Link It up Wednesday!

My favorite thing about spring is it's hot enough to go to the beach and be outside but we're not dead from the summer heat/humidity (we just moved to SC and I'm dreading summer).
