Just finished - my "May" tag

I have been participating in Tim Holtz's 12 Tags of 2012. Just finished my tag for May and made a matching frame. For the tissue paper pattern, I actually bought an infant pattern so I could use the tiny pieces on the background. The faux porcelain flowers were such fun to make. I think I made over a dozen. They are much pretty in real life. If you want to see them, stop by Cafe Crop.

Have you seen the new Trinity Paper Arts?

Trinity Paper Arts is a new line of scrapbook paper and embellishments.Here are two quick cards I made using the Surf and Swim papers (Lei and Noteworthy).

But did you know they are offering reward points with their products?
Start saving the reward points. They will be announcing the details at CHA in July. Stay tuned for more information.
