Whimsical Wednesday ~ Tag IT!

Hello and welcome to another Whimsical Wednesday Challenge. This week it is all about TAGS! Oh how exciting. I have only made one tag before and I so enjoyed making it. Unfortunately like many of my projects, there was no post or picture! So I asked Stephanie if I could join in this week. The only thing that you HAVE to include is BLING! Yep ~ that's it!
Well for my tags I made them super easy! A couple of weeks ago I did a project for a baby shower my Mom and I were invited too. The new parents are from out of state and they asked for no cards but really wanted to start a library for their baby. So I made my own wrapping paper and made a card/ gift card holder for the gift cards. They also wanted us to sign the books. So instead of easily signing the books I decided to make cute coordinating tags to personalize it!
I chose two of my favorite books my son has and still loves! So for my first tag I chose ladybugs. For my bling I just added some black glossy accents to the spots and antennas of the ladybug. i tried to make it child proof as much as possible.


The second tag the bling is the monkeys eye from Viva Decor pen!

Okay I know lots of pictures. These were real simple and just a little more personal.

Materials for both tags:
Cartridges ~ Zoobaloo and Walk In My Garden
Stamps ~ My Creative Time "All Star Baby" , Market Street Stamps "Burlap" , "Simply Stitched Borders" , Stampin Up "Blossom"
Extras: Twine from The Twinery, Viva Decor Pen, Black Glossy Accents, ink and chalk.

I hope you enjoyed my tags. Something so easy but fun to create. Please go over to Whimsical Wednesday's and see what my fellow design team members have created. I am sure you won't be disappointed, I can't wait to see.

  1. Hi Kimberly,
    These are such adorable tags. I love both of these books. And the tags you made to go with them are just as cute as can be. What a great idea! I'm a kindergarten teacher, so I am all over this. I am going to share your tags with my other teacher friends here at school. They will love them too. Great job!!

  5. Wow Kim, those tags are fantastic. Your attention to detail & how they coordinate with the books themselves is uncanny. Your bling is just right in all the right places. The ladybugs & the monkey are such cute critters but what you did really makes them standout! Great job.

  9. Kim, these are just precious! I love how you matched the tags to the books, and they can make great bookmarks! The little ladybugs are so cute. I have a bottle of Glossy Accents in my craft room, and I definitely need to try it out this weekend. The ladybugs look so pretty! Your monkey is also SO cute, and I love the way you signed his tummy!
