Good morning fellow WOYWW's (or should that be WOYWWers?). Today is the day for a good ol' nose around some desks across the globe....some tidy (not like mine), some messy (like mine!!), but all very inspirational.

So this week I have finally gotten round to making some stamps from my TH dies. I cut them from craft foam (25p a sheet in a craft sale) sticking 2 layers together. So far I have cut the on the edge Houses and the sewing Mannequin, I have only tested them on a piece of scrap so far (that's on the right) but they seems to stamp ok....I cant wait to have a proper play.

Thanks to all the ideas for what to make with my ever expanding scrap box, this tag is made only using scraps (and small ones at that).

I used some TH papers (I cant bear to throw away the smallest scrap-not only because they are so lush but so darn expensive...but worth it as the quality is fab) the smallest scrap of music paper, old pink lace that I dyed with TH re-inker to grunge it up. I added some bronze foil around the edge (SUCH a bargain at a craft fair back in the Spring, £1 a roll of foil...I use it SO much but have hardly used even 1 foot off the roll so far! (and I didn't only buy 1 roll at the time!!))

I then die cut (yep, on Colin again) a flower from scraps adding a some old buttons... the suede lacing to hang the tag is even a scrap leftover from my necklace making session!

So, with the amount of scraps I have it looks like I have LOTS of tag's to make....and with the REALLY small pieces...perhaps I should start making inchies!?!

Please pop over to Julia's blog, there is a blinkie over on the right, and have a nose around some other creative spaces.

Happy Crafting
