I put aside projects that just need to wait for a different season, letting myself admit I don't have the time or energy to do everything now.
I started a jar of odds and ends that will bug me until everything is in its place. I sorted ribbons, rub-ons, gems, buttons, beads, trims, chipboard, die-cuts, tags, stamps, ...
When I was really tired of moving things from one place to the next I sat down with some Halloween supplies, and let myself play for a bit. I didn't have the time or vision to work on an album so I made a few little odds and ends tags.
Let's start with the promising ones. ;)
Mr. Hoot came together quite easily after I scrubbed my stamp clean. It only took half a jar of stamp cleaner. haha The yellow button is supposed to be the moon. Hoot is Maya Road, and that branch is Sassafras Lass.
This tag was an attempt at using up leftover rub-ons and die-cuts from my Pink Paislee stash. The purple button brings it all together for me. :) I did wish i had some sparkly black brads to add to the ends. Alas, I have no black beads. Someone remind me next time I am at the store! Actually, if you see me at the store remind me that I need to pay Target for a bottle of counter-spray-cleaner I apparently brought home without paying for. *Blush*
This was my attempt at vintage. The black dotted paper is Fancy Pants? Don't take my word for it. haha. Cindy-Yapping Cat was asking me if I could do vintage, and I'm just not sure I have the skill. What would you say? Needs improvement? Either way, my favorite of all the tags.
Not bad, but somehow still too plain right? The only thing I could think of adding was another circle inside the scalloped circle. I had the ribbon going across both sides, but it wasn't an improvement. I am accepting critiques on this one even though I don't plan to play with it anymore. ;)
Now here's where it all got messy. Last week someone was bragging that they knew someone even s-l-o-w-e-r than slow at scrapping, and the slow-poke was me! lol I decided to give myself 5 minutes per tag for this tag, and the next. The final result is - I NEED MORE TIME!
This sweet little pumpkin gal stumped me. I almost think I should have flipped her sideways and cut up the sentiment. I love the trim across the bottom, but I feel like it should be under her? Does that make sense?
Anyway, glad you were here to listen to my ramblings as the hubby just didn't get them. :) Happy Scrapping, or organizing as the case may be. Dee2
