Scrapbooking with TAGS!! Scrapbooking Global blog hop

Hello and Welcome!!!

Today I'm hopping with this Ah-Mazing group of scrappers as we Tag It!!

This theme was inspired by the amazing Sharni who's work is ALWAYS spectacular!!

Once again I've created a super busy page!!  Photos and tags everywhere!!

When I was thinking about the tag theme, I decided using the lovely Hand Penned memories and more cards would work perfectly!!  They have lots of lovely words and tag-like elements that I've cut out and added gingham ribbon and white twine details.

So, because my starting point was the Hand Penned memories and more cards, I then thought about the colours I would use which coordinate - off to the catalogue to look at the colours listed next to the Hand Penned designer series paper, looked at my photos and decided on Cinnamon Cider, Basic Black and Basic White as my starting point - and the tags would do the rest!!  

I also thought, well, what else is there in the Hand Penned suite that would work?  And out came the Penned Flowers dies to cut some white and black elements to pop under photos for extra texture.  

My tags were made in a variety of ways - some fussy cut from the memories and more cards; some were the stickers from the memories and more cards; and some were cut using the Tailor Made Tags dies.  I've used these dies to cut some of the memories and more cards as well!!  

All of my tags feature the super cool gingham ribbon and a bow tied from white bakers twine.

I also decided to do a little background stamping using the Hand Penned stamp set and Black Stazon ink.  

Up next is the super awesome Denise.

Here's the list of everyone on the hop in case you get lost along the way!!
