TAG BOOK SWAP

HOPE YOU ALL HAD A MERRY CHRISTMAS!
Got my book tag swap from Jo from Australia. The swap was hosted by Jean at http://lilaclanelivery.blogspot.com/ . We were to make a 3 or 4 page tag book with a container. Here is mine. I used a muslin bag (not made by me) and added a charm to it. Put a few stamped butterfly's on it. Close up of the glass bead charm. The first tag in the book I stamped with a dress form stamp, an over all dot stamp, and a Paris stamp. Added some blue checked tissue paper, and some pattern tissue. Then cut a cute girl from a vintage pattern, put a button on her shoulder. Also added a button to the dress form. Second page I stamped all over with my crackle stamp. Stamped a few bird cages. The black bird cage is an acrylic one that I got in a swap. I glued it down then penned the chain to hang it. Some dot tissue added to the bottom. Third page I stamped a little script stamp some girly shoes, a Pairs stamp and some pretty pink rose lace. Cut the pink girl again from a vintage pattern and added the button. Fourth one I think is so cute with the flower button faces. At leas that's what I think they look like little button faces! Crackled the back ground stamped with some out door and garden stamps. Added some rose lace.
Fun again making this tag book, I think Jo is a sewer and I tried to get some sewing in there. Me I am not much of a sewer I can but don't do much. Soon as I get mine from Jo I will post about that also. I still have a couple swaps to get yet. Family left yesterday so Pearl and I are headed out to Mikes and HL this AM. Hope all the good deals are not gone! Jo's blog is http://scrapnstitch.blogspot.com/
All for now thanks for looking and come back soon.
Blessings
Donna
