"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it." ~ Isaiah 55: 8-11

YOU MOOVE ME / RS #21 & CFC #62 & Oval Punch Topped Tag Tutorial...


Hello! Today's RetroSketches Challenge is SO awesome!!! Our guest designer this week is Tracy McNeely, so be sure you go check out her re-work as well as the other ladies projects!

I used The Alley Way Stamps set, Get Moovin - this cow cracks me up!

 

I'm also playing along with this week's CASual Fridays (again)!


Here's a little tutorial / pictorial showing how I made the little Oval Punch Topped tag...


#1 - Slide the top of your tag (I start with one longer than I will need) into the top of the punch and line it up - I do this by making sure there is the same amount of space on each side..

#2 - Punch it!

#3 - Use a border punch to punch the bottom of your tag topper.

#4 - Slip the border punched paper a little under halfway into the same oval punch and punch it out.

#5 - Adhere it to the top of your tag.

#6 - Embellish ~ I added an eyelet to this one and a piece of ribbon!

You can use most any shape for the topper, too - a circle, oval, even a fancy label punch!


Thanks so much for stopping by today~
