Tags it Is!!

This month Jackie is hosting the Verve Get Your Diva On Challenge and "tags it is"!! Suprised, you shouldn't be as Jackie Pedro is the queen of tags... that girl can crank out some gorgeous ones!! I have only made tags a couple of times, not sure why as I did have making these.

Here they are...


These little things were giving me a tough time photographing and the rainy weather didn't help much either. Used lots of Verve's dies and stamps. The circle backing was cut out of thin chipboard with a circle nestie and a layer of dp was placed on top. Cut three Classy Oval dies (Verve- A Cut Above Dies) and stamped with an image from Love Notes. Added some Sweet scallop tags die cut in crimped kraft cardboard (purchased from the funkiejunkie on Etsy- thin, wonderful stuff!!) Added a border with dp and scallops on the tags. Some hearts from Verve's Text objects with gold pearls from Pizzazzaplenty. Finished off with a sentiment from Verve's Small phrases stamped on a banner made with Verve's Charming Banner die.

Close ups of the individual tags....





















Hope you're having a wonderful Sunday. Mine's pretty good although, I'm getting this posted as the Urgent Care isn't open yet... my youngest (18), I believe, has strep. This is the second time this year... yikes, she had it a lot as a child, hope we aren't looking at a tonsillectomy??

Thanks for stopping by and appreciate all the kind words!!

Love these, Vickie!!! Fabulous colors and love the design!! The crimped tags really adds so much dimension!!! And of course those hearts are my fave!

Just love what you've done here, Vickie! Great set of tags - those little hearts are adorable and love the different backings for them. Sorry to hear about the strep.... For what it's worth, I had my tonsils out at 4 many, many moons ago when they used to take them out much more quickly and have seldom been sick since.

Adorable tags!! Love the tag on a circle and the crimped kraft is so unique...love the texture! Often wondered why God gave out tonsils...they so often just cause trouble. I have a SIL that insisted her 3 children had "strap" throat every time they had any kind of throat irritation. Calling it "STRAP" throat has become a family joke at our house - lol!
