Tag Team

Looking through the design team gallery for February, full of projects using luscious My Minds Eye products I noticed that both Karen and I had created layouts featuring tag shapes.

My brand new year layout features 4 tags with two placed end to end to make a longer strip to the right of the page. I simply cut rectangles from card, snipped the corners off to make a tag shape and added a punched brown circle of card with a small hole punched in the centre. Decorating these 4 tags with papers and running titles and journalling that overlap the tags and background card leads to a simple design idea creating a layout that flows across the page.
The Honeycomb Red/Pink double sided paper I have used can be found HERE, and the glittery striped paper/brown on reverse HERE.

Karen's Sweet Treat layout also uses 4 tags placed in a line across the page. Three act as photo mounts and the third is filled with hand cut embellishments and a title. She then sneaks a 5th tag in turned on it's side for the journalling. The floral embellishments Karen has used are from this paper HERE and this paper was also used on the layouts taught by Debbie at Ecelectic Keepsakes crop that several of the design team shared.

Finally this page by Katherine features a decorated  tag to the left of her photo housing the title to her layout.

Come back over the weekend when we share banner shapes appearing on more February DT layouts, but if you can't wait why not visit the full gallery HERE.
