Become You

Over at Tag Tuesday
the new theme is   'Use your Scraps'

I think Valerie knows us crafters very well when she chose this theme.
I am so guilty of hoarding even the smallest of scraps.

Take the wooden heart on this tag, it had snapped at the top and side rim, so got placed in the bits box. Today I have stuck it back together to use on my tag.
I also used a piece of printed material, fancy wool. which I have no idea how long that has been lurking, fibers and papers. The base of the tag is a remnant of stenciled paper,  at the moment it is quite bendy, I will have to look out a piece of stiffer card to back it with.
 The picture I think may be from Crafty Individuals.

Thank you for calling in to see me today. you are very welcome here.


  1. What a gorgeous tag you have composed from your scraps - you see, it was so tight to save them! In cave-man times, the men used to go hunting, and the women gathered all the bits and pieces they could find - in those days it was berries and twigs, these days we gather scraps and hoard them! Thanks so much for joining us again at TT, hugs, Valerie

  2. Fabulous tag Yvonne. I know I am guilty of saving lots of things I shouldn't but this theme is so much fun.

    Love Chrissie xx

  7. I'm with you. I save even the smallest scraps, then later wonder why I saved them. Your tag is fabulous, and I'm in total awe. It is simply out of this world and doesn't look like scraps at all.

  8. Great use of your bits and bobs to make a super tag Yvonne


  9. Your tag looks really beautiful, as if you had made it from your finest bits and pieces, and the colours are so lovely together.

  10. Oh lovely - the colours are so uplifting and I love that charming vintage face just peeping out. I've taken to backing all my tags on leftover cardboard - it gives them a very satisfying sense of permanence.

  12. This colour combination is amazing! The colours remind me of fruit salad sweets, do you remember them - anyway I digress ... lol 😁. The vintage feel is wonderful and the heart you rescued looks perfect now you've mended it. The fabric and piece of wool finishes the piece beautifully too. Have a lovely weekend! J 😊

  13. I love the colours you have used on this. And you have inspired me to make a tag! See you over there!

    Have a nice Sunday!

  17. I still have so many scraps- this theme could run forever and I would still have little bits around! Your tag is beautiful and your colour choices suit this image so well! Hugs, Chrisx
