Tags (Set of 4)

This is a set of four tags that I made the other day when I was in a scrapping mood, but didn't really have enough time to put together a layout. I figure I'll put these out of Etsy and see if I get a bite. I used these little chipboard "Technique Tiles Rectagles" from Technique Tuesday as the base, then decoupaged some scrap paper for the backgrounds. The titles are chipboard sentiments from K & Company and then of course I added ink, ribbons, buckles, flowers, pearls and rhinestones followed by another coat of decoupage for sealing the titles.

A is for Aubrey

This LO is of a photo I had taken on my DD's 3rd birthday. These days she's been all about saying "A is for Aubrey!" so I thought it would be a fun title for this page. The background paper has lots of endearments written in different fonts and colors, this is where I pulled my accent colors from. The quote tag says "You make me realize how beautiful my life is." Its a clear sticker that I placed on some accent paper and made a tag out of using Making Memories' tag maker. I then added pearl halves and an eyelet through which I ran a ribbon and a dangling tag fastener and adhered the ribbon to the photo. The "A" and its background are made from a chipboard die cut that I overlayed with accent paper and embellished with flocking and rhinestones. I used puffy tape to elevate the actual "A" above the background. I also added a pink feather to the side and then of course a few paper flowers with an enamel brad topped with another half pearl (this one in a wine color). The rest of the letters in the title are made from weathered looking copper-like colored metal tags. They are attached to the page using rhinestone snaps. I have left a location for a journaling tag should I decide to add one in the future. It is located behind the photo and will be attached using an embellished paper clip.
