Lovely peach tag

Lovely lovely tags :) i am so in love with tags right now. Whenever i find time in my very hectic life right now, i want to scrap, and as´I dont have time for minis i do something else that i have become very found of, TAGS!!!

This one i did last week but i did not have time to post it on my blog as i have been super busy. This tag is made out of paper from the graphic 45 collection "Baby 2 bride". I simply love it and will do a wedding album of it, i just need the whole collection first as I dont have all the papers. I used a regular cardstock tag as template and cut out the shape of the designed paper. I cut out two, the other one is adhered to the bag of this one to give it more strength and another paperdesign. the first thing i did was to use my prima frensh script stamp which i love most of all my stamps :) and stamped it directly on with perfect medium and used pearls shimmer powder. Sprayed with hairspray to adher the shimmer powder. Then distressed the edges with tattered rose ink and distress powder. Finally i put on distress stickles. I put on some lace, and a die cut form the collection. put some roses and ribbons. As a final touch i used prima pearls and a charm hanging in garment pin.

the backside i used another designed paper. On top of it i another designed paper folded in half to creat two pages. Adhered it to the tag. On the packside of the upper page i adhered a small paperbag where i could put another tag in. The paperbag i glimmer misted with vanilla breaze and also used the french script stamp on and bronze shimmer powder. So i had many spots for journaling and photos in this tag. This stamp on the front page is absolutely gorgeous, u have to tell me what brand it is Sandra :) it is one of them stamped journalingspots u sent me. To close the folded pages i put a small ribbon and tajped it behind the page and used some prima bling an dflowers. Right now my favorite embelishments are charms, prima flowers and prima bling, simly makes all layouts beautiful by using these.

Tags, lovely tags :)

The tags that i have been busy with these last days:

this orange tage i used shimmer mist from and the orange roses are bought from the 9000 year old city Jericho in Palestine, that is pretty cool right :) the leavs, lace ribbon and brad are all parts from swaps and raks. In this tag i used my french script stamp with vesamark and used pearls inbrown and stapmed roses on the corners with staz on, i sprayed it afterwards. The edges are edged with a sissor and distressed with vintage photo distress ink. The ticket i but distress stickles on the edges.

The greentag i used the glimmer mist sandra sent me. o took some drops and put some water in to make it a lighter shade and colored the tag with a brush. Then i used distress ink in peeled green color of for the edges and then distressed with vintage photo. I also useed the prima script stamp on this one but accedently used it up side down, luckely it does not show clearly my misstake :) i colored the lace with the glimmer mist with the olive and vanila breeze colors and used a tim holtz tag. Put some bling on and some prima flowers. A garment pin and charms aswell and finally ribbons, all by Sandra!

The pink tag i used tattered rose and mild lavender inks and edged it with utee mixed with glitter. Stamped love with red ink pad. Put some ribbons by Claudia and brad. The old lace a love and a handmade rose by Sandra.

ok, next big thing i have started to learn creating is tags, it is so much fun!!! At first when i saw all swaps with tags i thought naa nothing for me, i like to have big space where i can put photos and journaling but after seeing arlenes tags and also the ones Jade made i have simply fallen for this technique aswell, espcially after recieving many tags in my packages lately,s o thank u ladies for sending tags to me, i had only 2 before now i have bunch of them. And of course i had to make some tags after watching arlenes tags so these three are influeced by her tags and the one jade did for her valentines tag swap. Btw the one Arlene made for Rina is absolutely gorgeous, i simply love the colours she used. I have found that i lately purchase supplies after what she has been using in her projects. So tahnk u ladies for ur tutorials, it has been a great help while doing my tags :)

new products that are a must have in ur scrapbook collection.

The dubble-sided tape, 6 mm, i love it!! and do u see how thick it is. it is just like tacky tape, but so much more. it is cheaper compared to tacky tape as u get almost nothing on the tacky tape role compared to this one :) it works for everything aswell.

The french script stamp from prima, great deal !! it is big and fairly cheap as it covers a big space compared to other script stamps i have seen. And it comes out really good, i have done a tag that i will post a photo of later. I dont have big acrylic blocks so i use regular glasplates like the one next to the stamp. works perfect as a block to adhere stamps one while stamping, just another tip!

Finally!!! i got tmy baby 2 bride papers from graphic 45 :) however it is not the whole collection. so i have to find rest of the papers or find a place that sells the whole paper pad. it came as a part of Claudias swap kit to me. i will have so much fun creating with my new stuff. have already played and made a tag with the stamp set. So this is it:

Thank u Claudia for eveything in the kit, many nice things to create lovely thing from. Hugs
