I will admit-I am not the greatest in creating “off the page” projects, but with the aid of our brand new ColorBox® Erasable InkPad, I may venture off said page a little more often!

I created this tag with the aid of our NEW Erasable Fabric Ink and Ann Butler’s new Background Stamp- “Stitches.”  If you’re like me, you need a little help in the application of an idea-especially if things like sewing isn’t your strong point.  Luckily the new Ann Butler stamps were just what I needed to put this idea into fruition!

I began with a piece of duck fabric and a regular manila shipping tag; I used the tag as the base and guide for the final product.   I cut the fabric down leaving roughly an inch on all sides.

Next, using ColorBox® Erasable Fabric Ink, I stamped the stitched line onto the fabric as a guide to let me know exactly where I will place the stitching on the bottom of the tag.

The ink is pretty light-fast, therefore, I was able to do my stitching right away. With the additional inch border that I left to cut later on, stamping the lines was an essential step for me.

The rest of the tag went pretty quickly once the stitching feat was accomplished!  I added a little batting to what would be the interior of the tag for a little more texture and dimension.

Once the batting was in place, I cut the extra fabric off and stitched around the entire border of the tag.  To finish-using fabric glue, I attached the snowflake ornament and a greeting!

About Suzanne Austin

Hi!  My name is Suzanne Austin.  I’m a SAHM of 3 kiddos living on the Gulf Coast in Alabama.  I’ve been married to my wonderful husband for 17 years and counting!  I began scrapping shortly after the birth of our son, and like most haven’t looked back!  It wasn’t hard to become completely immersed in scrapbooking-the process, the art, the design-I am still in awe of the talent that’s showcased in this industry.  My style is pretty versatile (and still ever evolving), but I tend to lean toward the mixed-media and inky side of scrapping.  My motto: Just do it!  I love experimentation with new ideas and techniques. I tend jump in head first-no regrets. I love the enrichment (and therapy :D) this hobby has to lend.  I’m beyond excited to rub elbows with our talented Creative Team for yet another term!
