A New Toy!

Good morning everyone!  I just a little excited this morning because I received a new toy yesterday to add to my crafting world!  I purchased the Tim Holtz Alterations Movers and Shapers Die (Tag and Bookplates) and it came in the box yesterday!  Well I just had to give it a try and it works beautifully!  You gotta love it when a plan comes together!


Please forgive my terrible picture; sometimes it just doesn't work for me!  I made the tag using the new die and one of the bookplates on the die!  I glued some design paper to the front of the diecut and taped down some lace and a ribbon.  I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of cardstock and cut out with scissors and glued to the back of the bookplate.  I love this piece...it looks so shabby chic to me (the bookplate that is).
Next I added a flower from wild Orchid Crafts and a couple of rosebuds and some stamen just because.  Now I have another wonderful tag to put away for just the right time when I need it!  How easy was that!  Now I don't have to go out and shop for tags anymore!  I love it!!

You are going to just go crazy with this new toy I bet. With all the beautiful tags you have already created this will only make them easer for you to create. This one I especially like the paper you picked matched with the that lace and then set off with the green ribbon... Just Lovely!

Oh so fun to get new toys. Love your so soft and feminine tag. I didn't take too much time to read how to use it but I purchased a Mover/Shaker, TH lock and key..don't know if I'm missing a plate or what, Didn't know what a Mover/Shaker required to use it.
Gosh almost the weekend again. Enjoy

I've been away and have just gone through all your recent posts to see what I have missed. I always love seeing what you have been up to. I think your new toy is something you will definitely be using a lot. You always make the most gorgeous tags and this is another one I love.
