Mixed Media Tags

My newest ebook just became a Bestseller on Amazon! It is filled with creative projects that can be made for Christmas~or any time of year. If you would like to read about it, just click HERE.

I adore creating tags and wanted to make them as gifts for Christmas~

I mounted them in double frames~

I design for Shabby Cottage Studio and I created all of these with their torso tag sheets.

I embellished them with images from The Graphics Fairy.

I purchased vintage dress patterns and used them for the tag backgrounds and stamped them using various stamps.

Also, I have created some gift tags and bookmarkers that you are welcome to print out. Just go HERE to print them.

I have a fabulous Christmas Day giveaway and if you'd like to enter, just scroll to the post below!

Happy Creating!!!

Congratulations on your books. I love tags and ATC's. They are miniature art pieces, and they challenge they offer to use such a small space to tell a story appeals to me. Framing them will make the recipient delighted.

Hello Cin
Wow, Wow and Wow is all I can say to describe these beautiful framed Tags, they look so beautiful.
It is all in the design I can see that, but using a thick wooden frame certainly makes these projects outstanding.
I am so pleased you have had a good month Cin.

Your work is just beautiful!
I want to thank you for your little "Women Blogging For Business Seminar", chock full of wisdom, and most importantly positive thinking. You have been so very encouraging and extremely helpful to me. I've been blogging for almost a year, and am eager to start my online store, as soon as I can physically get my items displayed, photographed and up on a site, and when I've learned how to set up the shopping cart and payment methods, etc. You are so very kind to help me and all the other bloggers out there. It's been such a jopy to connect by blogging this year with the most wonderfully generous and creative women. So much support! may you and yours be richly blessed this Christmas! Love, Linda

Myric said...

Not just a gift tag but they can make a great wall decor! I should do this to your gift! I hope you are having a great time preparing for Christmas. Are you all set up for Christmas? We are driving on the road as i am typing this comment in my phone :)

OH MY!!! Cindy, I think this is my favorite of all the ways to display these beauties. What a great idea--a matted frame--and in pairs they look even lovelier. You're genious, my friend.
