It's A Beautiful Life


I crafted this "tag" last week. It's made from a 6" flower-shaped piece of a chipboard album. I covered it with a 6x6 paper from the webster's pages line called Postcards from Paris. The "cherish" word is also out of the same 6x6 paper stack. A few embellishments were added, and a string of 3mm pearls were glued around the edge. Trying to find the right glue for the pearls was a challenge! I have about a dozen different types of glue and, finally, found that Fabri-Tac worked the best. If anyone else has a glue that they're pleased with for this type of work, do let me know! You can right-click on the photo to enlarge and view the details.

I use Fabric Tac for heavy duty gluing...especially with plastic. I have found the glue E6000 works for small things and they will stay put.
Very cute tag!
Thanks for sharing!

That is absolutely beautiful, so very pretty. Please tell me what a chipboard album is because I don't know. You are oh-so-very creative, and the way you photographed it is also very artistic. Thanks for sharing the beauty with us!

Hugs,
Mary

Very pretty blues and birds! I rarely use pretty papers like these, but you have inspired me. Maybe something like this would look nice in my bedroom. Where are you going to put it?
Hugs, Patti
