Sweet Vintage Inspired St. Patrick's Day Tag

Hello Friends!!  
I hope you are having a fabulous day!
Today I have a sweet vintage inspired St. Patrick's Day Tag that I have created using some lovely
 Really Reasonable Ribbons and Trims.
I topped off my tag and created a luscious bow with some Moss Green Seam Binding.   I also used a couple the 10mm Baby Pink and 15mm Deep Ivory Roses.  I used the Pink Salmon Seam Binding for my bow in the upper left (below).  
I used a few of the Kiwi Buttons tied with Green Apple Baker's Twine, and a bit of ivory organza tied on to a darling little clothes pin with vintage button (above).
The sweet little pull out tag is tied with some Green Dots Organza.
It tucks in behind the celery crochet lace.  I tucked some Juliet lace under my Vintage Clover image.  I used one of my Vintage Music Tags for my base,  layered in a doily and then one of my Irish/Lucky Bingo Cards, I also used a sheet with the Green bows and shamrocks.
The Irish Boy image is from one of my Irish Stamp Collections.
The removable ticket is from my St. Patrick's Day Tickets.
I had so much fun making my tag and using all the lovely Ribbons, Trims and buttons from Really Reasonable Ribbon!
Below are the Collage Sheets that I used below.

Vintage Inspired Easter and St. Patrick's Day Collage sheets

Hello Friends!!
I hope you are having a fabulous day!!
Yesterday we had rain, snow, thunder while snowing, then a lot of snow, more thunder and then a lot of rain!  It was crazy here in Michigan!!  I woke up to my phone going off at 4am this morning, the school's automated phone service calling to let us no there is no school today!!  Yay!!
Of course I don't have to go to school, but when the kiddos don't have school instead of getting up at 5am, I can sleep in till 7am!!  Gives me an hour to get ready for work and head out.
I have my Dunkin Donuts Blueberry coffee brewing as I type, and it smells delicious.  I will be taking it with me on my normally hour long ride to work, it will be interesting to see how long it takes today!  
I had a fellow Scout mom come over and help me do some cleaning.  I have never been great and  Great at creating messes, but not cleaning.  So while I was paying her to do some cleaning, I made sure I did some cleaning too, and so things look pretty good around the Hudson  It feels good to have things done!  So I do my 12 hour shifts today and tomorrow, so Sunday when I get home I hope to have a chance to play!
I have been working on a couple of collage sheets.  St. Patrick's day and Easter! I wanted to share them with you.  
Here is a sheet that I did last year.  
Joyful Easter Egg Blessings
I made a cute little Easter book with it, you can find the details here.
You can watch my tutorial of how I make these little books here.
Here is another sheet from last year for St. Patrick's Day.
I made this sheet with my friend Shawn in mind.  She has always been my 
Knowledgeable about tea friend! I even made up the sentiment on the sheet.

Here is my card I made with the sheet.

Creative Cutting Challenge: Baby

Hello Friends!!
I hope you are having a fabby day!
Today I would like to share with you my attempt at a 
Clean and Simple Card Baby Card that I created for our new 
Creative Cutting Challenge!
(I know it it is not very clean or simple, but honestly it would drive me nuts having more white space than I do
Our theme is Baby and you need to use an SVG
Here are a few new Collage Sheets that I used Elements from in my card.  Blue Onesie and Pink Onesie sets.
Vintage Baby Blue  Boy Onesie Set Digital Collage sheet Printable   Vintage Baby Girl Pink Onesie Set Digital Collage sheet Printable
Green Onesie Set
Vintage Baby Girl Boy  Sweet Green Onesie Set Digital Collage sheet Printable

I used a piece of the textured two tone pink ribbon to create the tiny bow at the top of my baby onesie.  I used a couple pieces of the 1/4th" natural crochet lace to create the sweet vintage look to the sleeves of my onesie.  Of course these and the fabulous 15mm Baby Pink mulberry roses all came from Really Reasonable Ribbon!!
To create my card, I first designed my own onesie file, the sweet little duck is Cindy's File from the creative point.  I simply cut it out of some digi papers that I did to match my onesie.   You get all the shapes in the photo below as part of her set for only $3.00.

I also used one of my vintage banners, and my alpha text boxes on my card.

Yesterday I shared my lovely Victorian inspired Christmas Ornament.  You can get all the deets in my blog post here.

Here is a look at the back.  Actually I didn't post the photo or deets of the back here they are....I ran out of the pink silk so I used my favorite Salmon Pink Seam binding with another 20mm Deep ivory Mulberry Rose.  I used elements from my Angel Ornament set, my Pink Victorian Mitten Sheet, and my new Victorian 2 Turtle Doves Collage sheet focals to create this piece.

I have a Youtube tutorial showing you how I made my ornament.  So grab yourself some yummy coffee, tea or hot cocoa, and some chocolate and have a watch.
I am in a "Tutorial" kind of mood, so while I am sharing, here is  another tutorial, for your blog that you may find fun!

 How to add a Pinterest Hover Button to your blog.
This is SUPER COOL!  All you have to do is add the html code one time to your blogger template, and then every time someone visits your blog and their mouse "hovers" over your images, a little "Pin it" button will show up!  That way your Peeps can pin all your beautiful creations!  I created my own "Pin it" button so mine will look different than yours.
Thank you so much for visiting!!
Hope you have some time to create and play along in our
Creative Cutting Baby Themed SVG Challenge
You could do two a Baby Boy Card...and you can link up to 
our Really Reasonable Ribbon for the boys + Ribbon Challenge!
I can't wait to see what you create...and will be even more excited if you have a Pin it hover button so I can pin your creation!

I will be playing along in the following Challenges

My Artistic Adventure Challenge 4: The Second Day of Christmas

Hello Friends!!
Welcome to the Fourth
"My Artistic Adventures Challenge"

**Our 4th Challenge Theme is 
"On the Second Day of Christmas my true love gave to me two....."   Keeping things simple again in that all you need to do is have a Christmas theme..and use two of something :0)
using elements from one of my  Digital Collage Sheets.**

Create any tangible item, Card, tag, ATC, Layout, altered art piece, Banner, pretty much anything you can come up with that is tangible using some of my digital images.
(Sorry no digital entrees)
You will want to check out the RULES page here.
(I am sure the rules may evolve over time...but I will let you know).
Heather (me)
I am playing along with Gloria's Challenge (see the end of my post), so I thought I would say a bit about my Ornament below.
I used elements from my Angel Ornament set, my Pink Victorian Mitten Sheet, and my new Victorian 2 Turtle Doves Collage sheet focals.  I also used some gorgeous Pink Silk Ribbon that I have been hoarding for a while now...from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

Close up
I also used one of my heart charms that I have been hoarding as well as a vintage button :0).  The drop bead trim....I only have a tiny piece of that of my favorites from a past DT, which is no longer selling items.  The 20mm Deep Ivory Rose, Ivory Organza, Cotton Candy Baker's Twine are all from RRR.
As far as my style..and doing something that says "Me" all over it...well I have designed all the paper elements of my ornie, used my fav RRR and AG Goodies and of course it is in the Shabby Chic/ Vintage style!  It is interactive, in that I like to design things that people will want to touch!  So the candy canes and tiny clothes pin are removable.  Of course the backs look as good as the front...which you will see in my
Youtube tutorial coming soon.
I can't wait to share with you my Sweet Designer's inspiration pieces.
