Beautiful Graphic 45 Tags to Brighten Your Day!


Hello G45ers,

It's another gorgeous day here at the Graphic 45 blog! We are so happy that you've stopped by today! We've got some real treats planned for you! Today we'll be showing you some stunning tags from Tara Orr, Nicole Eccles and Clare Charvill of our design team. These amazing creations are full of inspiration and beauty that are sure to brighten your day! Tags are so much fun to make and they have so many uses! You can give them as gifts, use them as decorative bookmarks, attach them to some lovely ribbon to make a fun banner, or incorporate them into a layout or mini album. The list goes on and on! Tags can also be a great way to start a bigger project. Need to get your creative gears turning? Start with a simple tag and see where your imagination takes you! Who knows, your tag might be a gateway to a grand layout of mini album! Tags are super cool! So lets get our tag celebration started with this gorgeous creation by Tara Orr. She recycled the packaging from some Graphic 45 Staples and used it as the base for this tag. Then she used our lovely collection A Ladies' Diary as well as marvelous chipboards and pretty embellishments. The result is this exquisitely layered tag with a shabby chic charm. It's just marvelous!

Next we have another fantastic tag! This one was created by Nicole Eccles and features our Happy Haunting collection. Nicole layered the fabulous patterned papers of Happy Haunting to create a beautiful Halloween scene. Then she added some pretty Happy Haunting Chipboards, Graphic 45 Metal Key and some pretty ribbon to bring all the elements together. This tag is filled with classic Graphic 45 vintage charm. It's a true Halloween dream!

Next we have an enchanting tag creation by Clare Charvil featuring our brand new collection Bird Song! This tag is rich with vibrant color and elegance. You can see how Clare beautifully layered the patterned papers with Bird Song Chipboards and Graphic 45 Trim. All of this lavish layering gives this tag wonderful dimension. Here is what Clare had to say about this sweet treasure.

"These papers are just beautiful and almost too good to cut into. I kept a simple colour palet of creams reds and blacks (my favourites, for this project and after layering the elements added a die cut branch and blossoms which I coloured with distress ink pens.  Have fun if you make one for yourself." -Clare Charvill
