A little something I did while I was watching TV

I was watching General Hospital today on my computer because I missed it yesterday. Well, I was kind of bored so I thought I would play around with some scraps that I had laying around. I actually cleaned my scrap area today..LOL. I had paper everywhere!!! I just got some buttons from China today in the mail. They were so cute and I couldn't wait to use them BUT guess what I didn't use The color just motivated me!! I will take a picture of all my goodies tomorrow and show you what I got off of Ebay. So, I kept throwing my cereal boxes in the recycle bins in the garage and noticed that I had a ton out there. So....a brilliant thought came to mind...lets make something with it. I got my large scallop punch out and punched the chipboard with it. Then I started making my tag. I first painted the chipboard with acrylic paint "Teal". Then I got out my Martha Stewart glue pad and inked up a really cute stamp with glue and stamped my chipboard. I then poured glittered onto the stamped image. I knocked off the glitter and dried it with my hair drier...LOL...I know...I know...I need a heat gun. That's on my list of things to get this weekend. Then I played around with my water and bazzill paper, to create the little blue flowers. Also, I made the stem that the flowers are glued to. I saw a lady making her own stems and vines and thought I would try it out. It didn't come out like I wanted it but oh well, it works!! Then I picked up a pack of these cute little butterflies at walmart that were on clearance for $1.00. I popped it with a pop dot. I then punched my hole for my eyelet and ran some fibers and ribbon through it. I then stamped "dream" onto a small piece of bazzill paper and then popped it up with a pop dot. So, after a few minutes playing with all these things I came up with this tag. You never know what you will come up with when playing around with different items and freelancing it!


  1. Well done Anna the tag looks beautiful!

  2. Thank you ladies! lol....gotta love playing around with scraps. My favorite part was playing around with stamping with glue and adding the glitter. That was my first try doing it.
