Crafty Creations - #126 Paris

Bon jour mes amies!! And welcome to another fun theme at Crafty Creations Challenges.  This week Amy has set 2 elements to her challenge:

                                           1) Paris
                                           2) Anything BUT a card

For my creation I made "his n hers" luggage labels!  This challenge came at a GREAT time for me as I had planned to make luggage labels for our brand new shiny suitcases (and if all has gone to plan I have used them already on my holiday)!

I got out a favourite K&Co Maison 12x12 Scrap Pad which came complete with papers, die-cuts etc.  I used many elements from the scrap pad, some Tim Holtz tissue tape and finished by adding a little random stamping using some French themed postage stamps.  They were fun but simple to make.  When I finished I sealed them in Lumin-It pouches (I got these recently at Dawn Bibby's store). I used my big bite to cut a hole and threaded some black jewellry cord through (as it's v sturdy)!  Et voila!!

(I have decorated the back also but as it has all our personal details I did not want to show it on here)!

BlackLeaf Studios are our fab sponsors this week - so I do hope you get the opportunity to join us and be in with the chance to win a fab prize!! Bon chance!! bx
