Three Amigos September Blog Hop

Welcome to the Three Amigos Blog hop.  We are three Close to My Heart Independent Consultants with a love for stamping and scrapping and would like to share our creative ideas with you.  On the 3rd of each month we feature a different CTMH product and create a card, layout, or other project.  There are only three stops on this hop so it will only take a few minutes to hop through.

This month we are featuring the special stamp set celebrating National Stamping Month, #30yearsofhappy. The last two weeks of August were especially busy for me this year shopping, packing, and moving my girls off to college. As I was removing the tags from some of their new clothing, the creative wheels in my head began to turn. The altering possibilities were endless. Since my studio time was limited, I kept my creations fairly simple. I designed the first tag from an extra blank Cricut-cut tag I had in my scrap folder. I stamped a border of the "it's your day" image above the gold shimmer trim and lagoon washi tape.  I paper-pieced the gift and added slate diagonal striped ribbon and flamingo dots for texture.

The next two tags are altered tags from clothing my girls purchased. I have before and after photos of each.

I was going to add more bling to this tag, but the simplicity of it appealed to me.

My youngest is studying environmental science in college. Altering and re-purposing the tags is a great way to keep them out of the landfills. She'll be so proud!

Thanks for hopping by! Hop over to Lisa's Blog to see what she created for you.
