Go Confidently!

**I have lots of new listings for stamp sets for sale on my "Stamps for Sale - Updated" tab above!  Or you can click here.  Take a look if you have time!  Thanks!**

Hello all!  Today my hubby and I are celebrating 18 years of wedded bliss!  :)  What a joy it is to have spent the last 18 years with him!  He is such a blessing to me! I am so thankful that the Lord chose to make him my partner in life!  :)

Today, I wanted to share a cute little tag & gift bag I made that would be perfect for a graduate or for a coworker that is moving on or moving up the ladder or even for a gift for a father, brother, son, etc. I made this specifically with a masculine theme in mind, although truly it could work for either gender.

I made this super quick but I really liked how it turned out.  I die cut one of the Anytime Tags 2 dies twice for the tag.  Once from patterned paper and once from white cardstock.  Then, I die cut one of the Stitched Mats: Long & Skinny Rectangles from white cardstock and stamped a sentiment perfect for the occasion from the new Go Confidently stamp set.  LOVE this stamp set!

Here's a closeup.  I added a few enamel dots for a pop of color.  I punched a hole in the bag and then tied the twine (from The Twinery) through the tag hole.  


I'm entering this in the CASology Challenge which is to make something with a graduation theme.  I love this stamp set for the graduation theme!

I'm also entering this over at Crazy 4 Challenges.  The theme this month is to make something with a masculine/father theme.  

And, last but not least, I am entering this over at the Tag You're It Challenge.  I was inspired by Tracey's project in several ways.  She used twine.  She attached it to a bag. It was neutral in gender.  And, I was also inspired by the shape of her tag.  

Thank you SO MUCH for stopping by my blog today! I hope you have a blessed day!

This is very pretty Jen! I agree, it would make a lovely gift for someone graduating from one chapter in their lives, to another. Your colour subtle colour scheme is a fresh take on the cue too. Thanks so much for sharing your gorgeous creation with us at CASology this week!
