Blast From the (Scrappy) Past
If you've been scrapbooking for a few years, you may remember the Making Memories Tag Maker. It's one of those tools that I "had" to have and used only a couple of times. The other day I happened upon this forgotten tool in my drawer along with all the neglected tag shapes. Since frames are all the rage these days, I thought it would be fun to use the tag shapes as frames. Currently Cocoa Daisy has a challenge to create a layout using Alissa's style. As I was looking through her gallery, I was inspired by a layout she created using stamped frames. I decided this challenge would be a perfect match for me to use the tag maker. Here are some of the shapes. Initially I thought I would spray paint the tags, but as the layout started coming together, I realized the silver looked great with the color scheme I had chosen.
Talk about falling in love with something all over again. I now need to search the web to acquire more of these little cuties. I have lots of ideas spinning around in my crafty head. :)
