Want2Scrap has these fun new tags and since Easter is just around the corner I created some fun and pretty tags to pop in the baskets. Here is a list of the main materials I used...with each new tag I added more colors of paint, bling and embellishments, but the base of each tag was created in the same way.

I first sprayed each tag with spray ink.

After it dries I use a mask or template and add a little paint.

Now it is time for embellishments...both bling butterflies, chipboard embellishments , or rose ribbons work equally as well. Of course for the chipboard we got to add a little extra paint fun!

Then for a finished look add stamps, more paint for the edges, rub-ons, bling and pearls of various colors...they add the pop that says "Spring has Sprung"!

How about all these pretty spring colors!

I hope this inspires you to did into your crafts and create for the season!

Want2Scrap Chipboard Dress!

Have you seen Want2Scrap's new Chipboard Dress Form? I decided I had to alter this and after I was done...I made a fun, and pretty big card/invite for a friend.

I decided to use Gesso on the base and then added a layer of Plum Walnut Ink. I painted the top layer of the form with black paint and then used spray ink to add some shimmer.

I tied on some tulle and added one of Want2Scraps Hot Pink 1" Roses.

Then I adding the new Nestabling Decorative Dress Form . I also added a touch of Fancy Waves Bling Border

After my altered dress form was done I framed it with cardstock and added my sentiment.

Mimi Leinbach: Another Set of Art Journaling Pages

The February Frugal Fab Kit from Scarlet Lime is so pretty. I just love the beach themed products and considering the beach is one of my favorite places in the world I ran with that idea.

Since I am seriously into my Art Journal...this seemed like the perfect time to celebrate my love of the beach.

This fantastic bling seahorse was my inspiration for the pages.

Between the stamp, bling words, and my fab Scarlet Lime Pen I said everything I needed to say.
