Shipping Party Blog Hop


Webster's is celebrating the fact that Park Drive and Once Upon a Halloween are shipping this week! In honor of that fact, we are hosting this blog hop to showcase the new products.

To start, I wanted to share a bit about why I paper craft. There are several reasons! First, I have always been creative. Playing with fun supplies is my way of relaxing. :) Next, I want to preserve memories and stories for Ryan. He loves looking at our scrapbooks and I hope to have many more to give him as the years go by. I make cards and tags because I love sharing something from the heart with the people I care about.

Today, I'm going to share a tag set I made featuring these goodies:

I used the cameos from the Park Drive Perfect Accents pack. Aren't they gorgeous!!!

Here is the tag set that I made...


 I wanted the floral cameo to be the star on this tag, so I added some embossing and a piece of cut patterned paper.
 Jewels and a little chipboard heart finished it off.
 Again, I went for simplicity by emossing the center panel and topping it with the butterfly cameo.
 I added a bit of paint to the edges and added some jewels to the butterfly. Rows of jewels also outline the panel.
 I ran out of cameos, but wanted to add a third tag, so I created this one with a Perfect Petal.
People sometimes say they don't like giving away tags because they are too pretty to write on. Recently, I read a great idea and wanted to share it with you. Rather than writing on the back of the tag, tie a blank tag to the package along with the embellished one and write on that. This leaves the 'gift-ee' with a blank tag that s/he can use again. :)

Now for the fun part...!!!  Hidden on seven of the blogs is a prize package. Simply leave a comment on this post, by Thursday,  for a possible chance to win. Winners will be announced on Friday at the Webster's Blog. Of course, hopping to all of the blogs will ensure that you have been entered into the contest seven times!

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to hop on over to Kay Rogers, the next blog on the Webster's blog hop.
