Create Bliss

Hi Everyone! I was in a crafty mood today and entered a challenge at a site called Paper Hoarders. For the challenge, we had to use lace on a tag, so this is what I made:
I have been wanting to use this dress form from LINDSAY'S STAMP STUFF on a project and today I figured out what I wanted to do with it. I cut out the pieces using my Cricut and SCAL, but if you don't have a Cricut or SCAL you can use the jpeg printables that are included in these sets. I used Distress Inks on the tag, doily sash, measuring tape and the buttons.
I stamped CREATE in the corner (Invoke), embossed the lower edge with a cuttlebug folder then glued all my pieces down with Helmar Acid Free glue and used Liquid Scrap Dots (for dimension) to adhere the buttons. I wrapped the spool with some embroidery thread and attached it to the tag with various ribbons, threads and yarns.
Here are links to the sets I used:

This project was sew much fun to make! That's all for today. Thanks for stopping by, and until next time, happy creating!

Oh my goodness, Tracey! SEW perfect! The lace skirt, waistband, and pearl necklace?! You dressed the dressform to the nines. And that spool hanging off it is a great tag accessory. So glad you got a chance to get crafty! :>

That is a great way to use lace.... love how it gives the tag the vintage look and love the added pins and necklace. Really love how you used the spool of thread (as part of the ribbons on top - sorry can't think this morning)

This is adorable! I love the tag, my favorite to work on. Oh wow, love the bobbin hanging with thread, great idea! The pearls around the neck, so cute!
Thank you for reminding me of this set as I have been looking for a measuring tape and forgot Lindsay had one.

Have a great day!
