Scraps Tag

 I have boxes and boxes (and boxes) of bits of this and that, all waiting to be made into something. Stacks of stamped images, half completed cards, scraps of pretty paper, embellishments, the list goes on and on. It was jaw dropping to realize just how much I've managed to accumulate since I started stamping, I am still trying to organize it all from our big move in August. I'm sure I'm not alone in this out of control collecting, they keep coming out with new stuff and I just can't stop.
 To feel better about it all I decided to try and complete some projects before my next major purchase. This tag with the Christmas tree was an ATC from a swap from many years ago. I don't know who made it, aside from "Denise", written on the back, or why I continue to save atc's. The craft color tag base is from a Tim Holtz insert card that held some kind of embellishments, too pretty to toss. I inked the edges with Tea Dye ink, added some Stampin' Up! sentiments and Sahara Sand lace ribbon.
