How About a ittle Something...

Summer! (Because I DON'T want it to ever end!!! )




And Something Fall! {Because unfortunately its a few short weeks away! : ( }


So my summer project is a tag to put on you child with info in case they should get lost from you while at the pool or even any place they could get separated from you. I used the covers from the Petite Album to make the tag, I used Copic Markers to Color the Digital stamp from Cheeky Radish and on the back used DoodleBug run-ons to put the info. I glued it together with Zip Dry glue and there you have a quick and simple tag! One bit of advice though only glue one side at a time and make sure the glue is dry before you do the other side! OOPS!! The paper I used for this was Bella Blvd.


Next up for the Fall banner I used the Perfectly shaped home plate album, October Afternoon Home Town pp, Cheeky Radish digital image colored with Copic markers, stickles, Shimmerz, May Arts ribbon, DoodleBug rub-ons and some leaves I had received in a kit last year. Now I only needed 1 double sided piece of paper to cover the home plate pages I used both sides of 1 sheet and even had some paper left! I attached the paper to the pages with Zip Dry glue, finished the edges with Chocolate Shimmerz, then used my Cricut to cut out the letters out of 1 more piece of paper. I outlined the letters with Distressed Stickles. I cut a few pieces out of one more pieces of patterned paper and used the leaves to embellish the sign. I then used a small hole punch and lined up the pages to cut the holes and strung it all together with some ribbon. I now have this cute sign that can be hung on a door or in the house for Fall! ***One tip if you plan to have the sign used outside I would coat the sign with Mod Podge to protect the paper from the elements.
I hope you enjoyed these projects and I inspired you to grab some Midnight Oil products and create!
Have Fun!
TFL!
