tag... you're it!

this week at shopping our stash, you can be seasonal or not, it's your choice. for "tag, you're it" we'd like to see... well... tags. but whether they are holiday-themed or not is up to you. as is whether you make the tag itself your final project, or just use a tag as part of a bigger piece, like i've done here:

tag ingredients: vintage lady from an old ideals magazine, pink paisley ledger paper, poinsettia from michaels, gold press on sentiment, gold doily and various ribbons, including that may arts leaf ribbon which is still possibly my all-time fave; card ingredients: patterned paper: lily bee design plus vintage sheet music, a scrap of doily and some gorgeous glitter gold tape from eyelet outlet

i actually made the fancy tag with the victorian lady on it either last year or the year before, as part of a "twelve tags of xmas" event on a website somewhere or other. but whereas i used the rest of them up... somehow... this one was still sitting at the bottom of my holiday card box. which was a perfect jumpstart, and i needed it, since frankly this past week kind of kicked my butt. to streamline the design process even further, i went looking for a sketch and found this awesomeness at sketch saturday, so all i needed to do was rotate it 90 degrees and add in the rest of the shapes, easy peasy!

there are lots of options this week, so luckily there's loads of inspiration from the DT over at SOS! g'wan and check it out, darlings! ♥


  1. What are the final dimensions of that tag :) It looks a bit Laurenesque ... love the elegant details.

  2. I agree with Stef it looks alot Laurenesque!!! Absolutely gorgeous.

  3. I absolutely love the layering on this project! Such a cohesive design and beautiful execution! Fabulous, as always!

  4. Well blow me down. This is beautifully awesome, or awesomely beautiful. I can't even decide. Okay, so I've narrowed down my 2 fave parts: the gal over the gold doily and the leafy ribbon...

  5. Absolutely Gorgeous!! I love love love all the touches of gold and the Vintage Lady is so pretty!!
