Tags and Tiles
Last year I made some tags inspired by a tag that was on some baked goods I bought at a church bake sale. I loved the scalloped edge and worked out a file for both the Design Studio and the Gypsy using Plantin Schoolbook.
I did several variations of these tags. The shape could be used for any occasion. You can see the first post by clicking HERE and the second post with the files to download is HERE. I haven't tried the gypsy file in the Cricut Craftroom yet - it should work (please let me know if you try it and have a problem).
Regrouping after a vacation always takes a few days - particularly when you are dealing with jet lag. I did get to look through and edit some of my photos so I thought I'd share a few close-ups of the tiles we saw inside the Nasrid Palaces at the Alhambra.
These tiles often remind me of quilting patterns.
I made a pillow with a design very similar to the one above years ago (I'll add a photo when I can).
The colors used are fairly consistent but the designs change constantly. This one reminds me of a caned chair seat.
This interwoven border would be fun to try to make as a cut border. I am planning to try this...soon...
No Christmas decorations were put up outside on Saturday - we were exhausted and my husband caught a nasty cold just as we were on our way home. I hope to get the window candles and outdoor lights done today - with our younger son as a helper. I hope you have a lovely Sunday - the days will be rushing by until Christmas!
