introducing happily ever after and more tag-its #12

introducing tag-its #12

Hi everyone! It's day 1 of the Papertrey Ink January release countdown. This month wraps up the Papertrey Ink calendar year. A little sad, because this wraps up the Tag-its series (and it has truly been a favorite of mine to work on), but I am looking forward to everything that I have to share in the next year! 

Here's a look a the whole Tag-its collection of frames...


Don't you just need to have them ALL for your collection?

Tag-its #12 is the twelth and final of the Tag-its series. It features a leaf patterned circular frame with a thicker outside border that measures just a bit larger than a 1 3/4" punch or die cut. The particular leaf pattern in the frame coordinates with several products that I have released in the past year.

All of the new stamp sets and products that I am sharing today will be available to purchase on January 15th, 10PM EST, at Papertrey Ink.


I pulled out the Vineyards impression plate that coordinates with Tag-its #12 and impressed some kraft cardstock. I used the 1 3/4" Limitless Layers circle die to leave a portion unimpressed so that I could stamp the frame image in it. You can learn more about doing this technique in this Make it Monday video by Erin Lincoln.


Here's a bit closer up look at the card. I swiped my Fresh Snow ink pad over the impressed image so more of the pattern would stand out. I then stamped the frame with Fresh Snow ink in the circle area. I stamped the heart image in Aqua Mist and the sentiment in Smokey Shadow over the top of the heart on white cardstock. I punched the design out with a 1 1/8" circle punch and attached it into the center of the heart frame.


The heart border is layered with the medium scallop border, stitched, and has a bit of bling (clear rhinestones) added to it!

There is more to see on this first day of the countdown: Nichole and Betsy are sharing projects made with Lace Bouquet and Think Big Favorites #12. Nichole and Danielle are also sharing the new Handmade Hodgepodge set. Dawn, Melissa, and Candice will share projects with their new sets too.

Thanks so much for stopping by today - see you back here tomorrow!
