mini tag album

So I've had tags on my brain lately, been having way too much fun with the PTI tag (click here, here, here), so it's not surprising when I saw the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge I thought of tags.  After a solid hour of trying to get something to work I decided to break out of my box and made a mini album.  I used some long forgotten eyelets and some Twinery charcoal twine to tie it all together.  The photos are from a visit to my grandpa's house in August, so I think I'll send it to them as a thinking of you gift. 


The inside.


The front.


The back

And on a slightly different note I've also been on a wine label tangent (click here and here) so when I needed another last minute gift for an employee, I whipped up this label.  I used the Hero Arts cling twice, which made it look like the flower vine was growing down the label and entered it in the Hero Arts November challenge Holiday Tags, do you think anyone minds that it's a birthday tag not a holiday tag?


Materials: PTI Tag It #1 die, Anna Griffin and Jenni Bolin patterned paper, PTI kraft card stock, PTI Limitless Layers 1 3/4th inch die, Waltzingmouse Stamps Half Pint Heroes sentiments, Twinery charcoal twine, Versafine black ink, Making Memories eyelets

Wine Label: Hero Arts Flower Box Cling, PTI Big Birthday Wishes, PTI kraft card stock, water color pencils, Versafine black ink, PTI 1 3/4th inch die, EK Success corner rounder
