SOS: So Sweet!

Hello, and thanks for visiting me on this fine Tuesday... a new Shopping Our Stash challenge!  This week,  Alicia is our host,  and she has chosen the theme of "You are so sweet!"... she wants us to feature something  sweet... duh!  Think cake, ice cream, fruit, macaroons, macarons...

  • The spotlight features of this tag are the macaron stickers by Jolee's Boutique,  approximately one year old
  • Ranger tag embossed with clear EP by Recollections using Distress Embossing Ink through Tim's fairly new stencil (I've had it since March)
  • Broken China and Shaded Lilac DIs in background over the clear EP, these have probably been longest in my stash
  • Sentiment written with a brush Sharpie and accented wth Pebeo relief liner in glitter... definitely neglected. 
  • Liquid pearls line the top and bottom of the tag. This is my original bottle of white Liquid Pearls-- I honestly can't believe this still works!
  • The seam binding came from a thrift store.  The DIs didn't show up strongly enough,  so I scribbled some Distress Crayons on my mat, sprayed with water,  and rubbed the seam binding into that. 
Join us!

*Tuesday p.m. note: Thanks, Barbara,  for pointing out my macaroon/macaroon mix-up!  I had known at one time that the macaroon is the coconut cookie and the macaron is this cute French treat... my memory is maxxed-out!


  1. you have a dimensional fine line outliner that's GLITTERY??!?!?!?!
    ok, sorry, i should've said first that this is a gorgeous tag and an utterly FAB take on the challenge, but when i saw there was a cool type of pen i don't have it kinda distracted me... <3 <3 <3

  2. Yes Lauren you get distracted easy remember the saying "and there's a squirrel" Awesome tag love the colours and to macaroon (the cooking shows call them Macarons) I just know they are really fiddly to make. Your liquid pearls are so even wow great job.

  3. Those treats look very eatable, like the real deal. Yummy pastel colors. I like how the seambinding ribbon was treated to get the same colors as the rest of the design.

  4. another lovely sentiment writing my dear

  5. OOOOOH MY GOOOOOSH! I love your style, so love it!
