"Although I love to try a variety of different styles, it is still the feminine and elegant style that I love the most. Thus, I fell in love with the gorgeous Couture collection the moment I saw it. I especially loved the elegant chipboard pieces that come with this collection and couldn’t resist making a tag with one of the chipboard pieces as the focal point. I stapled it on top of some die-cuts and stickers for a layered look." ~Romy

Both tags are beautiful :)

Great tags! Love the diverse colour schemes and different projects you can make with each G45 collection!

The Easter Card and the Tag by Maiko got my smile on. I especially like the ooh la la because it reminds me of my friend in Paris. Il es bon.

I'm going to try making Maiko's egg tag. So fun!

What a fun post. Both tags are so unique. Love Maiko's as SPRING is totally on my mind. Great color schemes on both. Thanks for sharing.

I just made a big batch of lacquered Japanese Washi eggs and thought I was done with Easter projects. The tag design today is forcing me back into my little workroom for some more creative activity.
