Tag, Tag and Journal Page

Here we are into March already and I am wondering where the time goes as I get older. It never seemed to pass so quickly years ago. Hope your week is going well and thank you for joining me here at Jumbled Crafts.

At Tag Tuesday we still have about 5 days to go for the Spring Flowers Challenge. The theme was chosen by Valerie and we have some wonderful tag entries from old and new friends of TT. Hope you will join us there.

For this tag I painted some corrugated card in green and then added white glitter for texture. The picture is a child's colouring page I found online and coloured with Promarkers.

Next Tag is for Go Tag Thursday where the theme this week is Butterflies. I am also entering this at That's Crafty for the theme Just words

I used things that were on my craft space to make this tag--a bit of purple card, a piece of flowered paper,and a little bit of mauve material. The quote that I had printed out and never used and the butterfly cut out from one of my birthday cards as was the ribbon. I think these things were just waiting to be made into a tag.

Last but not least our lovely friend Yvonne is the March host at Art Journal Journey and has chosen Out and About as her theme.

Have a great day all

Love Chrissie xx


  1. Beautiful tag Chrissie, the flowers are pretty and I was really drawn to the quote on the second one especially as it mentions my favourite brew.
    Thank you for a fantastic page for my theme choice at AJJ, its a beautiful painted background and the words quote is so meaningful, a message for many of us to face the day and do more in our lives.

  4. Here is lovely spring on your site, Chrissie. Love all three you've done. I just woke up! Here is so grey day that better to sleep!! Now a cup of coffee 😉
    Have a nice day ❤

  5. Love the spring flowers against the shimmering green corrugated card. And so nice to see how the scraps around the craft space came together in the charming purple butterfly tag. The digi page is a real delight... I should like to go and sit by that lake - definitely tempting me to get out and about, and the words are wonderful.

  9. Fabulous colourful projects and I love the corrugated card tag.

  10. Love the technique and sentiment you used on your journal page, the white highlights look beautiful over your painted background! Lovely tags too, both are so pretty and the corrugated card and brads work beautifully to set off those pretty spring flowers. Enjoy the rest of your week! J :-)

  11. Both tags are incredible. I especially liked the one about the tea. I may have to steal (OOPS, I mean BORROW) that quote from you.

    Your journal page is remarkable. You brought those flowers and that water to life with this great background. It is stunning.

  12. These are beautiful Chrissie! I love the wonderful spring colour palettes and the pretty florals as well. I think that butterfly is my favourite bit, just fluttering there on the tag!! Wonderful quotes as well, love the one about tea. Hope you had a great couple of weeks while I was out and about. sending hugs :)

  13. ALL of them so very beautiful, love the quotes.
