Tag Swap at MAS

Hello there!

I just finished a tag swap at Mini Album Swaps - a place my friend, Suzy Q told me about last year.  It is a wonderful place to do your swaps, as it is quite organized with loads of fun!

I joined a few of the swaps and now that this one is closed, I can show you what I created and sent to the hostess.  It was a "Be my Valentine" Stick Pin swap and you had to make three pins with a nice backdrop on which to place them. 

My backdrop was a tag that I had covered in red card stock, added roses, and a doily, which I sprayed with homemade glimmer mist.  Then added Martha Stewart's fine glitter to it because it looked "dirty".  In the photo, it looks dull but in person, it has a glittery presence.  The tickets are Tim Holt's and the heart stamps and heart styrofoam (looks like Valentine conversation hearts) were from the dollar bin. 

I can't wait to see the stick pins that will come back to me.  I love these and  charms - great craft collectibles.

Happy Crafting! :~)

Hello bright and cheerful friend,
Oh how sweet and romantic are your wonderful pieces of art. Love the doilies on them. All the embellies look perfect with the layout. The roses at the bottom add much charm.
Keep crafting my friend,
Monica with love

These are gorgeous Terry! Love the unusual bead on the pins on the left. Your tags to hold them are as gorgeous as the pins themselves! Someone will be very happy to receive these treasures! Take care, hope you are well. ~Diane
