Lets the Creative Inspiration Begin!

Like I stated on Friday, I am planning on sharing a lot of crafty inspiration this week :)
I will start with my June Tag for the Tim Holtz 12 tags of 2014 :)
Nothing like the last minute eh?
I am not sure how I feel about this tag, its not one of my favourites that I have done this year.
I used the same techniques that Tim used….you should check out his blog "Tim's Blog" to see his tag and how he did the background on here :)

I stamped these Heartfelt Creations stamps on some pattern paper and fussy cut them out.
They do have matching dies, but I don't have them for this flower…but it is easy enough to cut these flowers out.

The stamp I have used on this tag was one from the $1.00 bin at Michaels many years ago. It came with a butterfly, but when I unmounted it from the wood block, I also cut the sentiment away from the butterfly :)
I love this sentiment.

I have been busy today as I even made a video ;)

I shared my tag from May, but I totally forgot to post my video on here as well as my YouTube channel.
So here is the video for May's tag.

See, I told you it was going to be a week filled with creative inspiration ;)

On another note, my Facebook account was hacked today. Someone tried to use my identity to get my friends to a lottery scam…but with help from my friends, I was able to shut those buggers down, teehee.

I had a wonderful long weekend at our cottage with my honey, my daughters and their boyfriends.
But man they can eat, lol.
This is one breakfast of eggs and bacon…and I didn't break one yolk, not a one, teehee.

I am hearing some some fireworks outside.
Tomorrow is Canada Day, I guess some are starting the celebration early :)

I hope you all had a Creative Day :)

Tracy :)
