Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog Hop!

WELCOME EVERYONE!  Thanks for hopping along to our  blog to check out what I created!  You should have arrived to this site after visiting Christy at My Scrapbook Evolution.  If you want to start at the beginning, go to the Counterfeit Kit Blog.

For this blog hop we were to go to our favorite company's blog and get some inspiration, then create something with it.  Well, I love, love, LOVE 7 Gypsies stuff!  The only problem is that my local stores don't carry much of it.  So, what's a girl to do?  Well, if you are doing the challenge for the blog hop you do this...

Here was my inspiration...


I loved the look of these tags from 7 Gypsies.  It is from their Camden Line, and you can find it here on their blog.


I took scraps that were leftover in my May Counterfeit Kit.  (I love leftovers!) I arranged them how I liked them and adhered the collage together.


I used  large manila tags (6 1/4" tall by 3 1/4" wide) and stamped journaling lines on them, then adhered them to the back of my collage.


I cut the tags out...


Made little labels...


Punched the top hole and made reinforcements to match the tags...


Taa Daa!!!  My own version of 97% complete tags using my May Counterfeit Kit!  I haven't decided on what to do with them...Maybe a mini recipe tag book, maybe I will use them on cards, maybe on layouts, maybe a mini album ... the possibilities are ENDLESS!

Ok, your next stop, last, but definitely NOT least...Bethany at Inspired Scrapper.

Stay Crafty My Friends!
