Frilly & Funkie Tag
Wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukah, and Happy New Year! I’ll be spending this next week with family and see you back here in 2017.

This is my last project as a design team member with Frilly and Funkie. I want to thank Linda Coughlin and all my Design Team buddies for their support, friendship, and encouragement over these last nine months. I’ve loved being part of this team!
The current challenge (“Make it a Tag – Winter or Christmas”) is hosted by Terry. I decided to make a jumbo pocket tag using Tim Holtz’s Snowflake (Sizzix) On-the-Edge die. I used the Snowflake Texture Fade to emboss my XL tags. Tip: when using text in a die, be careful. Place your old book page upside down so the music is in the right direction when folded over as a flap.
I used a few wintery stamps and lots of Tim’s Idea-ology: Adage Tickets, Muse Token, Brads and Metal Corners. A strip of Linda’s white corrugated cardboard (colored with a light rub of Antique Linen and Vintage Photo Distress Inks) finishes it off.
I used the Vintage Photo to highlight the raised snowflakes, too. Please join us at Frilly and Funkie to see what the design team has created and then add your tag to the challenge… it’s open through Christmas Day.
