Birthday Wishes

Hello friends!  I'm so excited about the new release coming up at Verve to celebrate their 5th anniversary!  Part of the festivities are a number of challenges over at Splitcoast and I made this tag for Challenge #5 - Anything But a Card.  I thought the birthday sentiment was appropriate.  Happy birthday, Verve!

Things are getting hairy in my "studio" (and what I really mean is our dining room that has been converted to Glen's office and my craft room that we've shared for the 6 years we've lived in our apartment) now that we're packing to move to our very own home!  I've kept a few collections of patterned paper and my stamps will be the last thing I pack but my time to craft will start getting limited for sure! 

Anyway, I digress...  I started off with a large shipping tag and covered it with some patterned paper from an old Crate collection.  I stamped the flowers and leaves from Love's Flower on coordinating papers and pieced them.  The flowers are layered for dimension and finished with a colored pearl.  I stamped a greeting from Big Wish onto the tag and finished it with a little bee die from the collection, some found raffia and some twine.

Thanks for visiting today!

Supplies:  Stamps (Verve), Tag (Uline), DP/Embellishment - Neighborhood collection (Crate Paper), Pearls (Recollections), Twine (PTI), Raffia (my stash), Ink - Chocolate Chip (SU!), foam squares


  1. This is so lovely! I can imagine it will be more a challenge to craft the coming weeks, so many other things on your mind, which are such fun things as well!!! Woehoe!! Wishing you all the best!!!
    Hugs, Wendy

  2. Oh my wow! Love this little tag. Those polka dot flowers just make my heart go pitter patter.

  3. This is sooo super sweet Jen - always love what you create!!! I have that crate collection - you just made me want to take it out and start crafting!!! - hmm, problem is it's getting late here )-:
    Of course you'll miss all your crafty stuff but moving sounds sooo exciting !!! We've started looking for houses but it is so difficult, + we still haven't decided if we want to stay in the city or move out in the country - which makes it even more difficult (-: (what we do know though is that we need more SPACE (-: !!!)

    Have a wonderful day, Hugs, Karin

  4. Gorgeous, Jen, and so fun! Love the big polka dot flowers!
