A Few Tag Book Creations

I have to tell you
it´s sooooo hot over here
I know it´s nothing compared to other place, but for this little country
a temperature over 80 is a LOT
and these days it´s about 82-86 degrees
for a person ( read : me) whos favorite time of the year is Fall
this is no fun


I have been working on a few new Tag Books

using lots of lace


and my favorite French Rubber Stamps

this is what came out

french Inspired ofcourse

I really like them
and I´m having so much fun
putting these together.
They will be available in my Etsy later.

I hope you all are enjoying the summer
and don´t suffer too much in the heat :D

Thank you so much for visiting
over here today and
I´m wishing you all a wonderful weekend

Tina ♥♥♥

Sooooo beautiful, Tina....looking forward to seeing them in your shop.
I'll still take the 20 degrees from you if I

Tarnished and Tattered said...

Wow, hinges on the tags, stealing that one! LOL:) I swear girl, every single time I come to visit you have done something so cool & clever it just makes me squeal a little. Just enough for my kids to stop watching cartoons & look over to see what their crazy Mommy is doing. I remember the faux cabinet cards hanging from rusty paper clips, I so used that idea at my vendor night at Paper Cowgirls.
BTW, I got a box postmarked Germany yesterday. I broke out in a cold sweat because anything from Germany is the most AWESOME! There must be something in the water, rust & lace or something cuz you girls are so talented! Anyway, the pocket inside took my breath away! I have been loving these pockets forever & it proves my point that we can take something 'out there' & when we do it, it looks totally different. What I'm saying is, although I see pockets on blogs I've never seen one like this! Beautiful is an understatement. I'm blogging about it tomorrow. Lisa

Tina, Your tag books are absolutely gorgeous! Like Lisa I have to steal this idea with those hinges some day :-). It's so cool! I love all the laces, ephemera and keys you used.
Have a great day, hopefully it won't be so hot again.
