I made something!!!

Finally, it's been a month since my scrap room flooded and I finally have it all back together. I'm so happy to be able to do a little crafting. We insulated, the drywall is up and walls are painted. It was a big job, but well worth it. I'll do a video or post pictures in the next couple of days.

On to my tag. I did alot of shopping in the month I couldn't create and one of the things I bought was the Tim Holtz sewing room die. While I was preparing dinner today, I put a turkey breast in the roticary and while I was removing the nylon net that covers it, I had a a-ha moment. HA! I saw a skirt for my dress form die.

I cut the tag out of some kraft card stock and distressed the edges with my new distrezz-it-all, inked the edges, cut the dress form and after inking applied the skirt. I love it!! The sentiment is one of Tim's and the stamp is from Great Impressions I just got from my LSS. I dyed the pink seam binding with some pink bubble gum glimmer mist and crinkled it up.

I think this will work for Simon says stamp challenge Distressing.

It's good to be back, let me know what you think of my tag. I love your comments. Shari


  1. Hey, glad to see you're crafting again!!

    I LOVE the way you did the skirt on this tag!!! I've often saved that kind of netting from my turkeys....(cleaned, of course) - but never ended up doing anything with it, and consequently tossed it. Looking at your project sure makes me think I maybe should have saved it! LOL! This looks FANTASTIC!

  2. Great tag, and the recycling of the turkey net was a stroke of genius! :) The Design Team are really pleased that you joined us for the Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge this week - Thank you!

  3. Hello! Darling tag! Love the turkey net as the skirt. Until I read that, I thought you had used some milliners' netting or something. Very unique! Thanks for sharing your project with us at Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge! <3 Candy

  4. Shari,
    Happy to see you crafting again. I love how you used the net, what a great idea

  5. Oh, Shari, I'm so glad to see you -- I prayed everything would go well quickly for you. Of course your card is fabulous!

    I've been away quite a bit too with a family problem but trying to drop in on everyone as much as I can. I'll try to check on you again when I can!

    Hugs, and welcome back, my friend!

  6. So glad that you are back in action again. Love your designs and love this tag, the idea of using the net is so clever.

  7. I can't believe your craftroom flooded. I would be crying!!! Is that die fabulous or what? Love the skirt you added - too fun! Thank you for the visit and for following, I am very happy to follow you! Stay dry! Love the doggie pictures!

  8. I save the netting too and think you're brilliant for using it as a skirt!

  9. Hi Shari! Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving such a nice comment! I really appreciate it. I had commented earlier on your dressform tag but I still love it! And your Mother's Day card is awesome as well!!! <3 Candy

  10. Oh my gosh, this netting is fantastic. Looks incredible!
