Love Tags

This month for the blog hop we are using stamps that haven't seen ink. This is such a great idea. For my project I broke out Background Basics: Hearts.


I made a set of tags that I'll attach to Valentine gifts in a couple weeks. I used BB Hearts to stamp the background of the tag and also the background part of the embellishment. Pink Blush card stock was cut with a Labels Fourteen die and stamped in red using 3 different backgrounds from the set. {The word love is from Love Songs, and the flourish on the oval and the top of the tag are Mat Stack 2 Collection}.




This is a little pocket I made for the tags to tuck in to. It's not my original idea. They sell the tiny craft pockets at Impress, and they had cut the top with a MS punch. I just couldn't bring myself to spend 30 cents for one of these little pockets when I knew I could make them. And I know you all 'get' that!




Thanks so much for looking. I'll be hopping tonight after work. I peeked at a few of the thumbnails and I'm loving what I see!

Ooooh - I love the colour combination you've chosen here! The black floral adds a real touch of sophistication to the design!! Your baker's twine tag strings are also fabulous! I do 'GET' making the little pockets - they're darling and you did an awesome job!
