Lawn Fawn Tags

I love my Lawn Fawn stamps! I wish I had some more. They work so well. Some of my other clear stamps don't produce a clean image, but the Lawn Fawn ones always do.
Ever since I found out that I could use the Sizzix dies in my Cuttlebug I have been very happy. Michaels had a big 50% off sale and I bought a couple Sixxix dies. My favourite one is the tags. It has three different sizes of tags, but I like the largest one best.
For the Lawnscaping Text Challenge, I made a couple tags: one with a Christmas theme and one with a "love life" theme. I stamped the text on first, distressed the edges, added some glitter with my glitter pen and adhered my images to the tags.
I am also entering them in the Simon Says Stamp Challenge - Anything Goes.

2 Challenges...

The challenge at CAS-ual Fridays this week is to make a mini card - no larger than 4"x4".
For my card, I used MME Lime Twist Life of the Party 6x6 paper. I used my spellbinders circle die and made a lot of little circles. After I glued them together, I used my Marvy heart punch. I adhered it to a 4x4 white cardstock base, added the faux stitches and bow. The sentiment is from Hero Arts.

I am also entering my card for the 'Anything CAS Goes', at Less is More.

Binder Dividers

It is amazing how expensive binder dividers are! When my kids told me they needed several packages of them, I decided to make a few instead. All the cardstock I used was purchased on sale or clearance.
I don't have any pictures of the one set of binder dividers that I made for my youngest, but I have a picture of the ones my oldest is using. She wanted to use the Halloween paper I got in a clearance pack.

I made the tabs from the bottom of the purple spider paper. I trimmed two tombstones, added some more white dots with my gel pen, and folded it to fit over the paper.

They are quick and easy to make, and definitely a lot cheaper than buying them!
