Challenge: Good ‘ol days…

This week’s challenge got me thinking about my grandma’s cabin in the woods, pinecones, and well, I went down a nostalgic crafty path.

This new texture folder is so fantastic – and it got me thinking about woodland colors, pinecones, and considering a more rustic color palette for the holidays. I love that I can craft and think through ideas while creating projects! This particular tag will top a gift/package this Christmas.


I loved tucking all the buttons, brads, and trims into this tag.


Fun doesn’t begin to describe how much I enjoyed making this tag.

  1. Lovely tag inspired by Grandma’s I was thinking the woods and trees form your gorgeous background on the tag! Warm sweaters and cool weather. Beautiful!

  2. Truly beautiful tag, and your work leaves me inspired every time. Sweet memory too. Michelle t

  3. Oh, I really like it. My style is very modern and minimalist. But when the weather turns cooler and the holidays approach I get very nostalgic about our first home, in the woods, and all things northwoods style.

  4. I am going to have to try that color scheme because it’s so gloriously awesome! I love the way that green just seems to glow against the brown. Great work!

  5. You’ve captured the feel of Grandma’s cabin and the woods perfectly with this tag ~ it’s gorgeous, May and I LOVE your background! 🙂

  6. I love how you’ve not only created a clever scene here, but you’ve totally reminded me of every good cabin memory I have! I love art that evokes emotion and you nailed it!
