12 tags of 2016-August & One Little Quote

The nice part about a tag is that it's a little but you can totally get your bling on in a small space. In this case I managed to add a die cut, fussy cut stamped flowers, and a fussy cut butterfly, not to mention paper flowers, a scallopy metal piece, and some crinkle ribbon!

Of course insprired by the Tim Tag of August, but using colors more suited to the little airplane baggage ticket I upcycled which happened to be hot pink. Betcha can't tell. Gesso works wonders for most everything!

Tim was using a honey comb die cut that I didn't have, so I substituted the trellis one instead. Added a few pieces to fill in spots of the trellis in burgandy, but then left the rest of it empty to show off the pretty background on the tag. Of course I had to stamp some flowers that looked similar to the one he used. I also added one of the words from the One Little Quote I'm following this year. Only four more months to go and it will be revealed! ;-)

That little dangle was upcycled off a necklace and I thought worked well with the colors I used. And check out those adorable little flowers from the Funky Junky Botique. Only two months to go before the 12 Tags of Christmas that she hosts...not to scare you!!! 

Well, we still have a smidge of summer left to enjoy so I'm off to make the most of it before the snow flies! Happy Hump Day!


  1. Oh, you've done a wonderful job on Tim this month! LOOOVE the little bling bits and no way would I know there was an airline ticket lurking there!!! Go on, enjoy your summer.....we saw some areas had had a massive dump of rain [BOOOO!]....we've got 20C and lovely blue skies atm. Even wore a SKIRT in winter yesterday. LOL!!!
