Friday Die Day

Hello friends

This week I am featuring Floral Swirls Tags.
Designed by Stacey Caron for Spellbinders these are stunning
and a great size too, I'd say a little larger than regular tags so
they make a great feature.
The set consists of four dies - two tags with two inserts and
the approximate measurements are as follows:

Oval Tag 4.00 x 2.00 in
Insert 1.55 x 0.85 in
Decorative Tags 4.00 x 2.20 in
Insert: 3.00 x 1.05 in

This is how they look cut/embossed.

I've chosen to use the Oval Tag and cut an additional silver one with insert.

White 5 x 7 card base with patterned paper - this is from a paper pad

Matted patterned paper onto card front together with a light grey/silver
card panel.  Affixed silver oval tag behind white one to shadow,
white oval horizontally and silver oval vertically.

Finishing touch small flower, leaf and typed sentiment.
Bit of a dark frosty day when I took the photos!

Floral Swirls Tags is available to purchase along with
other gorgeous Stacey Caron designs.
I'm still in Peterborough and have a show this evening at 9pm and one
tomorrow at 7pm.  Having such a great time at the studios.

In other news if you like Pinterest then both Carole Matthews and I have
a Paper Hearts and Summer Kisses Pinterest Board.
We are both contributing crafty projects and photos to do with the book
including ones like these...

This was Bella (aka Eric) and I proof reading the book back in July,
it was lovely and sunny that week I remember, tad chilly now!
Feel free to take a look, we will be adding photos regularly.

Wishing you all a brilliant weekend.
Take care friends.
