Valentine's DaY Tags

Hi, everyone! I joined a swap over on the Cricut MB. You were supposed to make 6 tags and send them to your partner. Well, for the first time ever, I had a swap package go astray. So now I am going to have to make 6 more tags and send them to my partner, who has been very sweet about the whole thing. But I think from now on I will just stick to my regular PTI swaps!


I cut the tags out of thin chipboard using my Gypsy and Cricut Expression. I cut cardstock on the first tag and patterned paper on the second to cover the chipboard back and front. I stamped the CS with a flower image from an old SU set called Gentler Times. The heart is from the same set and is embossed. I used SU Chantilly Lace for the ruffle around the heart. Stick pins are from Maya Road and ribbon is PTI.


On the second card I used last year's valentine paper from SU. I made a rosette and used a Cricut phrase (I think it's either from Calligraphy or possibly Lyrical Letters--can't remember). The hearts are from Sweethearts I think. I used an old SU set, Everyday Flexible Phrases for the words on the hearts. Again, ribbon is PTI.

I made St. Patty's Day tags and birthday tags too. I'll show those another day. Thanks for looking!

These are awesome, Amy! Love the vintage vibe of the first and the fresh colors of the second. Sorry your package was lost...that must have been very disappointing and aggravating....

They are beautiful lots of work went into these. I remember having paper go MIA on the way to your house I so dislike that feeling of uncertainty with the Post Office:(
