I Love You Grande Tea HoneycombStencil Tag

Used a stencil, some spackling paste and some Distress Ink to make the honeycomb. Stamped a sentiment. Used dies to cut the sentiment that is named Washi Tape since it makes the pieces look like handtorn washi tape. Added some ribbon.

Picnic & Movie Vacation Staycation Tag

I made this Tag with theme 'vacation' as in 'staycation' where you stay at home but plan activities to do near your home. Here in Central TX there are movies in the park and you can bring a picnic to eat while watching the movie outside.

Staycation - Wikipedia

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Staycation
A staycation (a portmanteau of "stay" and "vacation"), also known as a holistay (a portmanteau of "holiday" and "stay"), is a period in which an individual or family stays home and participates in leisure activities within driving distance, sleeping in their own beds at night.
