Tags for Valentine's Day!
It's a brand new week of inspiration from our design team! Today, they show us the many creative ways to use Tag Staples! You can create albums, they can stand alone - the possibilities are endless! Sandy Trefger and Lena Astafeva share their ideas with us today. Let's take a look at Sandy's tag album:
"In early December, my husband and I spent a morning at the local outdoor trade day where I found and purchased a few gold vintage cherub ornaments. My mind immediately thought of using one or more of them for a love project and I decided that I would create a tag album utilizing the Graphic 45 Alpha tags to spell out “Love” in the album and regular kraft tags. I wanted something that opened up like an album with places for photos on the front and back as well as opened up to be displayed on a table or mantel. This album turned out exactly as I hoped it would and I can’t wait to showcase it in my living room this February. Happy Crafting!" ~Sandy
Tip: When working with the more vintage colors of the Graphic 45 paper collections, you may find that pure white pearls are too bright to use as an embellishment. If you do not have vintage or palest cream/ beige pearls, you can easily alter the white ones. Use a light beige alcohol ink marker and color over the pearl side that will show until it is the color that you would like for your project. You can change a white pearl to any color that you desire. You can also do this to clear rhinestones to create embellishments that match more closely your paper collection.

"For the day of St.Valentine I’ve made several tags. Then we can use them as tags for the book, also we can put them on the shelf. I like to put such tags on the presents which I give to my dear friends." ~Lena
