Easter tag for swap

Wow! This one is finally complete. Most of the time when I create something it just doesnt come out the way I pictured it in my head. This time , however, it was different. It turned out alot better than the picture in my head. This is the first full tag that was created with my craft robo http://www.graphteccorp.com/craftrobo/about.html . I never realized how much work actually goes into a project when you create something with the craft robo. EVERY little piece on this tag ( with exception to the ribbon, eggs, and eyelets) had to first be "created" on the computer and converted into the proper file. Then each and every piece was chalked, outlined, decorated, and pieced together. Despite all the work that went into it ...I would never want to do it without my machine

back to school embelished clips

these are my embelished back to school clips. The image in my mind was a bit different. I was hoping to put some kind of patterned paper in the back ...but the pattern didnt show much ....so I went with the stitching. This is my first ever project on the craft robo ...so maybe as I get more familiar with my machine I will be able to create better projects

baby shoe paper piecing

This is the last paper piecing that I have done for Amber and her baby. This one was fairly easy ...I wasnt sure about the colors at first but after it all came together I really like it

baby bottle paper piecings

I am sending some scrap supplies to amber for her new baby and I thought I would include a few little paper piecings before I send it off. The pink one is for her and I am keeping the blue. This one was really easy and I am really happy with the results

Little girl tag ( for scrap group)

This is one of my tags for Amber for her baby . At first I wasnt going to do the inking in the back but I made a smudge and had to cover it up

Beach tags ( for swap)

I wanted to do something entirely different for this swap but my idea just didnt work out. This is the finished project
