LeighAnn, that would be really awesome, thanks for offering, I would love a few extra copies of this image! Daniel sent me one with his tag package to me.

AJ. I emailed my source for the stamp. They just stopped making that one last month. But don't dispair if you want the actual stamp. My source is checking with them to see if they will be pressing rubber for the image. I'll email you more details.

Daniel, last month? Lol! I almost had it! Sounds highly possible that it may go back in production though.

As far as my Sept tag goes...it's so amazing when you have an idea set in stone in your mind...then you do a complete 180 and it works out SO much better than what you'd originally planned. I'm really happy with the results so far, knock on wood.

LOL, AJ! I love angles! Sometimes I do a '180', too. But... I've had the fun of doing 90s,45s & the occasiional 360.

You have lots more BG with making your mark 'in stone', but ITA that when we get the 'stone breaker' moment we can be positively giddy!

Good for you! That said, however... Should I forewarn my mail carrier to wear a truss?

Ok, I'm pouring myself a cocktail. My Sept tag is now complete. Just kidding about the cocktail, I'm actually having a pineapple popsicle.

Daniel, this month it was FOR SURE a complete 180..and I started thinking about why that was.

I thought I was excited about my first idea. But it dawned on me, I've been hanging around here now for a month or so and have spent a fair amount of time getting to know everyone by reading your posts. And the more I've learned about my Sept swap partner, the more I wanted to make something that reminds me of them.

Now that's all I'll say, I probably get way more excited about these swaps that I should, but I can't help it. The waiting is the hardest part!

Hi all,I can't wait to get my tag. Someone sent me my first Prima doll tag yesterday. I can't believe how big those stamps are!

I'm guest designing this week for a stamp company. Would be honored if you checked out my blog

What a treat! I got my tag from AJ & can't wait to have her share all the tricks she used to make it! It is absolutely wonderful!!!

AJ. I have that diecut, but want the EF you used--so be sure to do your usual great job of providing details when you upload!

And... I also got my Halloween images from AJ (plus a rak). She included a couple of the images she used in the tag!

I LOVE being a StamPea! We're the BEST!

Thanks Rutabagapie, I'm guesting all week so would really appreciate the visits and comments. And she asked me to host a game to give away some stamps at the release party so that should be fun. Feel free to come play along.

I love making tags. Especially when its just one. We should do an ongoing tag swap where you just mail to the person that posts above you. Total creative freedom.

Joyce-another alternative to a swap is to just make a tag and send it as a RAK to a stamping pea as a total surprise. It is always so fun to get some unexpected real mail!

Thank you Heidi, Daniel and LeighAnn. I appreciate your kind reviews! I had so much fun making this tag! Daniel, I think I'm going to have to get that die..my cousin cut a few windows out for me, but that's not going to be enough! Thanks for the name of it!

LOL, AJ! You (& your wallet) may not be thanking me for naming names when you see these dies. Along with the 'window', I have a 'matching' Grand Flower Box & Classic Screen Door (makes a great window, too!).

Omgoodness! Have you seen the goth window, the arch window and the french doors? No way can my budget handle all that! Maybe 1 or 2 at the most.

The memorybox dies are really impressive, I have only 1 of them at the moment.

I noticed that spellbinders has many smallish window dies out there right now. Not sure if you are interested in those, but they were affordable.

Heidi, I'll check that out. I think I'm just into doing some window view scenes. Now that I've tried this one, I think it would be fun to do them for all seasons. Smaller windows would work great on tags! This window die was on the large size for a tag, but I had to use it.

Thank you sooo much for sharing those MB dies I had not seen, AJ! (heavy sarcasm) Just ordered the gothic & arch windows!

Just kidding (a bit). I'd been wanting to add some windows to my stash of dies--love arches!

Sincere thanks & it didn't break my piggy bank.

Haha Daniel, that's the danger in sharing! Oh that goth window is hard to resist. I'm going to push it off into a future months budget, there are a few things I need right now like white cardstock. Doesn't sound like much, but I'm investing in the ream this time which isn't cheap, but will last a long time.

Can't wait to see what you're going to do with these new window dies though!!

I got my tag from Jan(far north) today and I absolutely love it! It is gorgeous. She even made a pretty holder for it. Can't wait for y'all to see it. I also got a sweet RAK from her, thank you so much Jan. I love the book and already have plans for the cardstock the instant I opened it! Jan you are too sweet!

I'm not familiar with those dies you all have mentioned. But I may have to check them out. So many possibilities with the windows!

Heidi, I checked out those spell binders window dies. They are very nice and about a third less on the price. I have a running wish list going, and at least 1 of them is going on. They also have a beautiful gate!

I agree, this months tags have been exceptional! We sure do have a lot of talent on this board!

I got my tag out last week to you Jan, so I'm hoping it will be there tomorrow or tuesday at the latest!

Caribbeangirl, I finished yours up yesterday so it will go out tomorrow.

I had a hard time narrowing down what I wanted to do with this months theme! Fall is my absolute favorite and I have a lot of stamps that are fall themed.

I apologize for enabling you to find more to put on your wish list. They are smaller. I did not see the gate one. I blew my craft budget for a while, so they will have to wait, but I would love to see more window projects from you!

The September tags are great! Fall is so inspiring!

Oh no Jan! I had a friend that used to live in Alaska and I knew mail sometimes took a while. I thought for sure it would have been there by now.
I had lots of leftovers from the tag I made you, so I made another one yesterday and sent it out today, just in case the other one got lost in the mail. One of them hopefully will get there soon!
