These will be my thoughts and ideas for crafting as I journey through the world of scrap booking and other paper crafts.

November Tag (acorn cutting file)
Tonight I finally got around to completing the November tag for 12 tags in 2012. As usual I didn't do it exactly as Tim but I'm pleased with it. I run my tag through a wood effect embossing folder and rubbed some frayed burlap over the card to get the wood effect. I cut out the wheat from white card and adhered it to the card. Next I cut out some tattered leaves from scraps I had in my scrap paper box. I created the acorn in my silhouette software and cut out. I edged them with orange ( Marigold) and Frayed Burlap distress inks. I used my distress pens to edge the acorn and define the lines between the shapes. I didn't like the plain white of the wheat so I lined them with a distress pen think it was antique paper colour. I adhered the acorn with foam pads to give the tag some dimension. I found some wooden leaves I'd bought from the Range store a while ago. I added them because I felt they tied in with the wheat. I cut out the wording using my Cameo and adhered that to the tag to finish the tag off.
