Aussie Tag Swap 2013 – December

Theme ‘A Summer Christmas’

Apologies it appears I forgot to load the last of the Aussie Tag Swap tags for December….. so here they are:)

Well here are my ‘tags’ for the December Aussie Tag Swap.  I hope they make you smile:)  And yes, I did say ‘tags’ – plural.  I made a some errors on the first one, but I did like the image and tag overall, so thought I would send Tanya both as it is Christmas after all:)



I am sad to say this is the last of my tags for the year and the end of this swap.  It has been a lot of fun, and I have received some lovely tags along the way, and learned some new techniques from some lovely, generous ladies.  I hope they have also enjoyed receiving my tags.

This is the tag I received from Judith this week, and it is just lovely, the colours blend so well together.


The good news is…. Judith from ‘Creative Studio’ is generously coordinating a new Aussie swap for 2014.  It is not tags this time, rather ‘Note Cards’ (i.e. greeting cards without the greeting’ so to speak).  This allows a lot more flexibility and there are some great themes, so I am very excited to join again.  If you feel like joining in, have a look at the details on Judith’s site.

Aussie Tag Swap 2013 – September


Well Judith has received her tag and loves it, which I am so pleased about as I love it too.  This tag is part of the ‘Aussie Tag Swap’ for September, themed ‘Peace’.

The lovely quote that is attached is:

“Think beautiful thoughts of peace, then set them free and share them with the world.”


IMG_1984I certainly hope it captures the essence of Peace, it certainly captures my thoughts about peace.

Thanks for stopping by.


Aussie Tag Swap 2013 – August

Welcome again,

Here we are celebrating ‘The Great Outdoors’, and what a vast array to choose from here in Australia.  Almost impossible to capture the Great Aussie Outdoors in a single tag, or even decide what to feature.  So I decided to go for something I know my swap partner loves about the great outdoors here in Queensland.  Lovely shady spots under the swaying palms, just chillin’ with a ‘fur’ baby.


Products / Techniques:  #8 Tag: Layered cardstock and printed paper; Hand stamped and fussy cut palm trees, puppy, Cane Chair & sentiments; touched with Gelly Roll pen clear star, some hand colouring. Twine & string from stash.
