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.
