Happy Summer Shovel Gifts

Hi my friends!  I have been away a little while so I made a HUGE post for you.  Today I have 3 Tag  projects I made for my kids last day of school at the end of June.  We are in the second week of summer vacation and boy it feels good!  No homework or bus stops, yeah!!!

Supplies I Used:
All Around Everything and All Around Everything Accessories Stamp Sets
Have Fun in the Sun Stamp Set
Tag dies
Build A Banner stamp and die set
Stitched Circle die
All from  My Creative Time
Sand Shovels  -  Target and Michaels
Flipping Out die set  -  Papertrey Ink
Crop-A-Dial and We R Memory Keepers Eyelets
Tonic Distress Tool
Worn Lipstick, Tumbled Glass and Peeled Paint Distress Inks
Twine  -  The Twinery
Glossy Accents

I buy white Fun Fur and use Distress Inks to get the colors I need.  It saves me money and space!
For this tag I also used:
Fun Fur  -  Lion Brand yarns
Swiss Dots Embossing folder
Hello Summer 6x6 paper pad  -  Echo Park
Blue Hemp  -  Liz's Paper Loft Boutique
Adhesive Pearls

Different Supplies for this tag:
Sidewalks 8x8 paper pad  -  October Afternoon
Fringe Canvas  -  Canvas Corp (colored with Worn Lipstick Distress Ink)
Polka Dot Ribbon  -  Offray

For the "ribbon" for this tag I took a piece of burlap and pulled pieces out to use as strings, then grouped them together to make the tie.
And for this Tag:
I used the burlap background stamp from the Build A Banner stamp set on the flip flops.
Pear Tart Ink  -  Memento
Paradise Beach 6x6 Paper Pad  -  Echo Park
Sticky Back Canvas Cards  -  Inkssentials Surfaces

I hope you enjoyed my projects today!  Have a wonderful summer weekend!  I appreciate every single comment I receive, thank you so much for the support I have received!  I Love you all!

Love and Hugs,
Cathryn :)
