Susan's name tag!

Hi there!

I went to a scrapbook convention this weekend in Louisville.  I met one of my scrappy friends, Susan, there, and we cropped and shopped. :)  It was a lot of fun!  I have learned, though, for next time I go to a crop that I really need to make the effort to plan ahead more, and bring a lot less!

I made this for Susan.  It's not anywhere near as big as the pretty one she made me, or as flowery, lol... I figured she could put it somewhere in her scrap area, or even punch a hole in it and hang it from her crop bag or something.

I used the SU! exclusive Top Note Bigz die to cut the shape out of On Board Long Board Chipboard (whew, that's a lot of "boards"!), Crushed Curry cardstock, and Medium Window Sheets.  I stamped the Window Sheet with stamps from the Vintage Vogue set and White StazOn ink, adding a couple of Clear Rhinestone Brads.  I also cut some Long Board chipboard with the Simple Letters Bigz dies and cardstock to create her name.  The little flower on the side is from the Pretties Kit, with a little half-back pearl from the kit as well.

Stamps:  Vintage Vogue
Ink:  Cotton White StazOn
Paper:  Crushed Curry, Old Olive, Bermuda Bay, and Melon Mambo cardstock
Accessories/Tools:  On Board Long Board Chipboard, Medium Window Sheets, Simple Letters and Top Note Bigz dies, Pretties Kit, Clear Rhinestone Brads, White taffeta ribbon
