Tag Swap

I just recently started to participate in swaps over on the Cricut boards. They are lots of fun. The challenge for me is to try new ideas I've learned along the way. This if the first ever Tag Swap that I completed where the tag was purchased and I had to decorate it.

I used the medium white tags by Paper Reflections. We were required to decorate just one side according to a theme. The themes I partcipated in were "Thank you", "Autumn Blessings", "Christmas" and "Birthday".

I inked all of my cards using a variety of basic ink products. I also began playing with Alcohol Inks by Ranger and their Perfect Pearls to create my own Glimmer Mist. (A lesson I learned on You Tube.)

All of my cuts were done on my Cricut Expression, which was a gift from my Hubby a few years ago. (He's the best!)

I'm new to the blogging space but have checked out many other people's wonderful blogs. In my blog, I will attempt to list all of the products I used in my Crafty Creations. This is definitely a work in process!

Thanks so much for stopping by to check out my new blog space! Stay tuned. . more to come!

Peace and Blessings,
Ms. Scrappy To You!
