Victorian beauty


Hi lovely friends,
hope you are well!

Today, I am sharing with you, a dreamy Victorian themed 
altered art tag that I have made.

This beautiful paper is a soft Periwinkle colour and 
is from the Craft & You Rose garden paper pad.  





I thought the words 
"Always act like you are wearing an invisible crown"
fitted this lady's expression perfectly!

Old Father Christmas


Hello again friends,
hope you are well!

Today I am sharing with you another 
vintage Christmas tag that I have made recently.

Here I have used text paper from 
Dovecraft Curiosity corner paper pad
and paper from Docrafts festive fauna paper pad.

Once I had adhered the layers of paper onto my tag,
I then added this gorgeous vintage 
Father Christmas image.



Finally, I added a collage of white holly
leaves and a poinsettia made using 
the Sue Wilson filigree poinsettia die.

This little darling deer is from the Christmas
village decoration set. 

Thanks for stopping by,

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!


Hello lovely friends,
hope you are well!

I can't believe that Christmas is only 
eight days away! I'm so looking 
forward to sharing the festivities 
with my wonderful children. 

I just LOVE the idea of an Olde world
Christmas and the nostalgia that 
goes along with it. There's just something
so magical about it all; Rewind to the days
when the holidays seemed less commercialised.

I wanted to create some vintage theme tags 
that embodied the feeling of that Old-time world.



I started to make this tag with a black and white 
theme in mind to match the beautiful image of
these two little Angels.

I have used cheese cloth and a wooden Reindeer 
embellishment, which I distressed with white acrylic paint.

The victorian lamp-post steel die is from 
the Marianne collectables Christmas village 
decoration set. 



I have used paper from my own
craft stash, to create a layered effect.

Finally, I added the words 
"It's beginning to look like Christmas"
and adhered a large snowflake that I created
using an Xcut snow crystal palm punch. 
I also added my favourite DecoArt glamour dust
crystal ultra fine Iridescent glitter to give the 
snowflake lots of sparkle!

I really hope that you like my altered tag?
I had so much fun making it!

Please check out my other Christmas tags on my blog..

A good heart!


Hello lovely friends,
hope you are well!

Here is an altered art tag that I have recently made.

I wanted to create something vibrant,
so I have used a soft green and magenta
colour combination.



Here I have used a collage of papers from
my own craft stash.

I adhered this delightful fairy image 
and matching heart embellishment made 
from the same floral paper on the tag.



Finally, I added the words
"No beauty shines brighter than that 
of a good heart"

Thanks for stopping by,
see you on the next post.

Roller skates!


Hello lovely friends,
hope that you are well!

Tonight I am sharing with you another vintage 
Christmas tag that I have recently made.


Here, I have used beautiful vintage style papers 
from First Edition 'the promise' collection.

I highly recommend this paper collection, it is so beautiful;
even though it has some wedding designs, you can 
use it for other projects like this one. 

I created this tag from plain white card stock,
and three layers of paper. 
Once the base of the tag had been created,
I then added this wonderful vintage image.

The snowflake is made from an Xcut paper punch. 
I used plain white card stock and completely  
covered it with Deco art glamour dust.
I love this glitter, it is so super sparkly!


Lastly, I used a Marianne collectables Christmas tree die
from the Christmas village decoration set.
Which has also been accented with Deco art glamour dust.

I have also used cheese cloth and off-white mulberry roses
and some sparkly white stamens. 

I printed off the words 'Merry Christmas' and adhered them to 
my tag. The edges of these words and the paper that 
I have used, have all been distressed using
Tim Holtz vintage photo distress ink. 

Thanks for stopping by,
see you on the next post.

Merry Christmas!


Hello lovely friends,
hope you are well!

Here is another Christmas tag that  
I have made recently. 

This one is very vintage!


Here, I have used beautiful papers 
(the checked paper) is from the Maja Design 
'A gift for you' collection
and the wood design paper is from my own craft stash.

I adhered some cream vintage lace underneath this
beautiful vintage photo and also printed out the words
'Merry Christmas'
I have also used a tiny snowflake embellishment.


 Lastly, I added some cheese cloth, 
wine red mulberry roses and a glitter embellishment 
that spells the word 'joy'.

I have really enjoyed making this!
