gear and steel tag

Here is a tag i created to use some new items i had gotten a while back. This really turned out better than I expected.

Sewing tag

I decided to play and try to make a cool, unique and interesting tag. So I took an extra large tag and decided to make it sewing themed. I utilized many of Tim_Holtz products and his newly released blue print sewing stamp. I really like how this stamp turned out and it was fun to make.

Wall Art - For staff member

One of my staff lost their father to terminal prostate cancer and I decided to make her a memory art board. I wasn't able to go to his services so I wanted to give her something she could treasure and keep forever in memory of her father. Here is what I made her.
