“Hello Graphic 45 friends and fans!!

Jenn here today sharing a favorite type of project with you.

Creating tags as stand alone projects or to use on album and card covers is such a fun way to embellish!
Grab one of your favorite Graphic 45 paper collections, fussy cutting scissors, tags, and adhesives and give it a try!!

For my tags, I have used three G45 regular black tags and covered them in die cuts using the regular tag die. The gorgeous G45 Classic Black Ink Pad was used to edge my die cut tags. For this I chose papers from the Patterns & Solids. Fussy cuts were done using papers from the 8X8 paper pad. Dimension was created by adding adhesive foam squares and dots at different levels on my fussy cuts.
In addition to the fussy cuts, I also used some of the ephemera pieces as well as some stamped and fussy cut pieces. These are all stamps from my stash.


As seen in my quick video, all of the elements were added to the tags to create fun scenes!” ~Jenn
