Seasonal Tags

Hi everyone.

I am back on this blog early than I thought. I had planned to be out in the garden for the next few days but the rain came in and it is also forecasting snow and sleet.  Instead I thought I would clean up my craft room.  Terrible thought I know.  Anyway, I found all these little pieces of scraps and die cuts so I abandoned the cleaning and made a few tags instead. I am so lazy!!!

I have recycled a cardboard box to make the base of these tags.  I used the large Sizzex die to cut the tag shapes.

 

Thank you to all my blogging friends who have been in touch with me and who have left comments on my blogs over the last couple of days.  I am sending you all humongous crafty hugs.  I will be around later for a catch up and a cuppa so pop the kettle on!! he he!

 Have a fantastic weekend. Happy Crafting.

  3. I have a huge soft spot for Alphonse Mucha artwork–my fiance is from the Czech Republic and his parents have large Mucha prints placed very fittingly throughout their walls (the mama is a huge interior design buff)! These tags look gorgeous, however. Perhaps I’ll get inspired to make one for his mama’s Christmas/birthday presents?? 🙂 Thanks for the inspirational post!

  4. I love your work. These tags are gorgeous! I smiled when I read about your cleaning the craft room, we all do that, don’t we? 🙂 Starting with a wonderful idea of making everything pretty and in order, and then find so many fun things we forgot we had.
    Everything I see on your blog is beautiful.

  5. Oh my goodness, making these gorgeous tags was not time wasted, that’s for certain! Each one has it’s own distinctive look, and all I can say is WOW!! They’re beautiful! I love the cogs on the first one to welcome spring!

    • Hi there. Great to hear from you. Thank you for calling in and for your kind words. To follow: When you are logged in to WP and visiting my blog or any other wp blog at the very top of the screen, just beneath the tool bar you should see a box with a + Follow… If you click on this, the + will turn into a tick and you are then following this blog. There should also be a black follow box at the bottom righthand side of the screen (when you are on this blog) again if you click on that, it should expand and give you a box to fill in your e.mail address.
      Thank you for mentioning this. I have had a couple of similar comments recently. I will sort out an alternative as well for non wordpress blogs.
      Looking forward to following your blog.
      Regards Florence x

  6. These are fantastic fun and look addictive to make. I very much like all your tags and that amazing layering; if I absolutely had to choose I prefer the first and last (Spring and Winter) but all four have so much to look at and admire in them. I quite like it when it snows as it is a good excuse to make art rather than tidy garden.

  9. Hi Florence, I adore these tags, they are fab. I have been searching for Mucha stamps for ages. The only ones I found were by Katzelcraft and not as nice as these little beauties. xx

    • Hi Paula. I had a look last night. I think these stamps are available from Creative Expressions. The only thing is, I wished they made them larger. These are quite small.

  10. So glad you abandoned your craft room clean up because these tags are gorgeous! Creativity beats cleaning every time! Nice to have you back on this blog. I’ve tried following your cardmaking blog but it doesn’t seem to email me when you post for some reason. Am I doing something wrong? Hugs, Tracy

    • Hi Trace. There seems to be a problem with e.mail subscriptions at the moment. Lynne has been experiencing a few problems and I know I am not receiving all of mine. I think I will clear my subscriptions, reload them and then just use the reader. Anyway Sweetie, please dont worry. It is always lovely to hear from you when you get a minute free to call in.
      Take care, Florence x

  11. Yes, hurray for bad weather and for abandoning your cleaning because these are sensational. Art Nouveau has always held an interest for me so to see your Mucha inspired tags, well they are inspirational Florence and of course, you know how I adore the use of scraps.

    You’ve created four beautiful tags; the layered embellishing complements the Mucha images to perfection – just lovely.

Glad to hear you have bad weather cos we have it too and we can rejoice in your amazing tags ! I wish I had half of your talent , you always manage to combine so many elements without them looking like a dogs dinner, I’m exhausted just looking at them ! Hope the weather continues to be awful for you then maybe we will see more of your masterpieces !
