TAG! you're it!!!

it's no secret that i go through "phases" in which i become totally obsessed; with a color, a set of products, a technique... whatever... i discover something i love and then that's ALL i want to do. case in point, having not done anything involving pocket cards for at least the last two years, i made one for niece riley a couple weeks ago. and BLAMMO, i was hooked! so imagine how thrilled i was when this week's challenge at shopping our stash was issued, and the brief was to decorate a tag, or incorporate a pre-made one into our project. so i did. and i put my tag... wait for iiiiiiiiiiiit... IN A POCKET! wahey! :) :) :)

(patterned paper and tag: pink paislee; banner and card-base paper: basic grey; dimensional cake sticker: crate paper; floral: prima; pocket element: teresa collins; ribbon: heidi swapp; adhesives: staples brand gluetape runner, 3m foam tape, sewing machine) 
of course, the fun part about pocket cards is that you can also take the tag OUT of the pocket:

conversely, you can also put additional things INTO the pocket, like giftcards or little candies or secret notes. which i think i will probably do before i mail this one to my cousin, kerrie! :)

but first i'd like to invite you to go and see how the rest of the SOS gang used tags in their awesome projects, and then of course, we can't wait to see what ♥YOU♥ will do with this fun challenge!!!


  1. Ooh pocket cards. Yes I haven't made one other than the gift card JB cards I made last year. I've been slow on the cards the last few weeks. I've now become obsessed with a different craft. Omg.. I'm a sicko. I'm kinda leaning towards art jewelry now. Just slap me really. lol. Love the card.Its gorgeous.

  2. That banner is adorable! And seriously, there's nothing quite as fun as a card that you get to play with. I love that cake!!

  3. So cool as usual. I love the pink of course, and the different elements.. the banner totally rocks!

  4. Lauren - I love this pink card! And I love the banner! What a greta card! And we must have been on the same wavelength as I put a pocket on my card this week too :) Great minds!!

  5. Love this!!!!!!!!!!! So pretty! The banner is perfect!
