Giveaway, and Vintage style tags!


I have a giveaway package for you, with lots of goodies sure to spark some creativity! The Hello Kitty font Cricut cartridge, The Pop-Up neighborhood Cricut cartridge, A typeset cuttlebug embossing folder, a set of Cricut Ink cartridges {markers} and a sweet chipboard mini album. To enter to win, leave a comment below  telling me what you will miss the most about summer!

 I will miss the ability to sleep in, I love when school is out and we can stay up late, eat meals well into the late night, and have the occasional sleepy slow morning! Oh how I will count the days for school to be out again! :)


I also love the activities of summer, I live to be outside, I can sit by the water for hours, but I can't sit in front of the TV for more than an hour or two! These vintage Bicycle tags remind me of a time when folks had to make their own entertainment, long bike rides, croquet, and walks in the park. Too bad those days are gone, but the adoration for them will never be!


Sweet little elements like, cotton thread and silver bells add a whimsical touch.


These tags were cut using the Cricut Craft Room exclusive digital bicycles cartridge, it does not look like an heirloom cartridge, but if you put your mind to it, most any image can be softened with the choice of papers, or embellies! {I said almost} I can't see some things working...but who knows you might invent a new trend!


Whatever you do this weekend, make it happy!

I will miss having my grandchildren come and stay with us for a couple of weeks each as we visit local sites and take them to the pool, and crafting with my granddaughter who is now old enough to learn how to use grandmas Cricut!! Aahhhhh, but I will always have these memories!!

Your tags are beautiful! As far as summer, I will miss having unlimited time with my 3 sons. We so enjoy being together during the summer. Even though they are teenagers, they still love to do things with their mom. We play basketball and football, practice Tae Kwon Do, bike ride, skateboard...yes, this 40 year old skateboards....and rollerblade. We also go to the many museums and theatre shows our capitol city offers. And, I will miss all the long board games and conversations that school and homework and activities just do not seem to allow. Thank you for the chance to win such an awesome prize! GG

I will miss the FREE, unscheduled days. In fact I could not bring myself to update the family calendar yesterday for September. Sigh!

Love the tags!

Ah, summer, how I miss thee already! Schedules are good and all, but oh how I miss my crafting freedom! My blogger finally let me follow you! Woo hoo! Do you know how badly everyone is wanting that Hello Kitty Cart??? You are so awesome to give it away. I would happily take it off your hands. ;) Gorgeous tags, as always!

Karons Krafty Korner said...

Your tags are absolutely fabulous. Lets see - what will I miss most about the summer - definitely the late mornings and not having to rush around first thing. Spending time with my kids and generally the warm weather. However, I am looking forward to fall - with the most wonderous colours that nature delivers. Have a great weekend and thanks for the chance at winning such an awesome give away. Karon

As always your work is beautiful! Thanks for sharing! This was a very bittersweet summer for me and the thing that I will miss the most is my children!! My baby(she hates that) graduated from high school and is at college as is her brother and sister! I don't like the empty nest so far!!!!

Marjorie said...

What a GREAT giveaway. I am a piano teacher and during the summer I move all my students to T, W, or Th so that I have a LONG 4 day weekend. Now that school has started, I am back to 5 days a week of teaching. I am going to miss my long weekends.

Love your tags!

I will miss the days hanging out with my kiddo. And even though it is still hot (92 yesterday I think), I know once it starts getting chilly, I will miss the warm weather. (I shouldn't live any place that gets colder than 68 degrees but I do).

Thanks for the chance! Beautiful tags!

Susie Craft Happy! said...

I'll miss everything about summer, especially the slow mornings. I work year round, but in the summer the house moves in slow motion it seems, we're not playing "beat the clock'.

My goodness, Shantaie, you always make the most beautiful ad interesting projects. I love your blog! I will miss the long days when we have sunlight well into the evening. It's always a little depressing to go to work in the dark and come home in the dark.

I'm actually looking forward to fall. I live in AZ and it has been such a HOT summer that staying in the Air Conditioning is getting old. I can't wait to be able to take walks and be outdoors.

Barb Parker said...

Wow Shantaie those are some great tags ! What I will "miss" about summer will be the days we can go to the beach .... I especially love the long walks on the FLorida coast as the sun is going down...sticking my toes in the warm salty water...listening to the waves !! Heaven !!

Cathy said...

Oh, I think what I will miss the most about summer is the smell of fresh cut grass, watching my granchildren run in it. Helping them try to catch frogs.lol and sharing Ice cream with them on the deck.

BettyBee said...

Summer is lots of fun, and I will miss lots of reading, but it also means looking forward to the fall and then the holidays, so, I don't mind it toooooo much :) Here in Florida we have such lovely weather that winter isn't painful like it is other places, so we are blessed with sun and sand all year. Thanks for great inspiration! Love the vintage feel of your tags. Great, giant giveaway, girlfriend!

I'm with you, I'm going to miss being able to sleep in! I tend to be more of a night owl and do not naturally wake up at 5:30:( I'm also going to miss my son who went back to college. I really like the feel of the tags and love the colors. Thank you for the opportunity to win a great bundle of goodies.

Eileen said...

I miss swimming and seeing the grandchildren more often.

Amy E said...

I will miss the heat! I live in an area that stays pretty cool anyway, so summers are rarely unbearable here. Winters are relatively mild too, but I just love the warm SO MUCH MORE than the cold!

Your projects are so beautiful and I love the tags. I too will miss summer even though I love fall. I will miss having my grand daughters over for sleep overs and we can sleep late and stay in our pjs all day if we want. Swimming, having picnics or just whatever catches our fancy. Thanks so much for sharing! lindagk23ataoldotcom

ADORABLE tags!!! I will miss it being warm enough to play outside as much - we just moved from Washington State (and very mild winters!) to Wyoming (at 7,200 feet elevations - so very long and cold winters!) I will definitely be an adjustment, but hopefully a fun adventure!!!

I will miss getting together with my families and spending extra time with my grandkids. Summer just goes too fast for me, seems the kids just get out of school and it's back to school they go. I enjoy setting out on the deck, grillingplaying cards with my DH and just enjoying nature at it's best.

Thanks for the chance to win the great giveaway.
