{Just be You} Tag and Giveaway!

Hi Everyone! I had a lot of requests for more information on how I made the tag featured in last week’s “Love at First Sight” Blog Hop. I couldn’t post too many details because Erin’s paper hadn’t come out yet {what I used for my flower} so I didn’t want to spoil the surprise! But, it’s out now and can be purchased on her blog – www.erinleecreative.com. Everything in this next project I’m going to show you is similar to how I created the tag last week.

The exception is that on last week’s tag I used Jenni Bowlin’s Cream Stick Pins {love, love, love these!} in the star and Stampin’ Glitter Glass from Stampin’ Up in Silver to cover the star.

I mention the products I used in the video, but will also list them after the video so you don’t miss a single detail. ;) If you decide to make your own flowers, I’d love to see! Just leave me a comment with a link to your project here on this post. Enjoy! {p.s. You can watch this in HD if you head over to YouTube!}

Tag: Manilla size 5 {Erin Lee Creative}
Flower: Brunch/Early Bird Line {Cosmo Cricket}
Ink: Tea Dye, Shabby Shutters {Distress Ink}, Rich Cocoa {Memento}
Stamps: Simply Stitched Borders {Market Street Stamps}, “Just Be You” Dec 2010 KOTM {Unity}
Fibers: Honeydew Twine {The Twinery}
Misc: Glimmer Mist – Yellow Daisy {Tattered Angels}, Quick Dry Adhesive {3M}
Tools: Tiny Attacher {Tim Holtz}, Distress Tool {Ranger}

And if you made it this far down {hehe}, I have a surprise giveaway! You could win a set of Simply Stitched Borders, a Distress Ink pad in Spun Sugar, and 1 yard of each of the new colors from The Twinery {Honeydew, Blossom, and Charcoal}!

To win, just head over to Facebook and “like” Handmade by Angelica & Market Street Stamps’ page! Make sure you come back and let me know you’ve done both.

Easy, right? If you aren’t on Facebook yet, that’s ok, just leave me a comment letting me know you’re following my blog and you’ll be entered too! I’ll draw a winner Monday night! Good luck everyone. ;) xo Angelica
