Double Pocket Valentine's Day Card and Tags

Hello Friends!!
I hope you are having a fabulous day! 
So back during the RRR Blog hop I mentioned I would be doing a tutorial on how I put together my card.  So...if you would like to hop on over to the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog, you will find my tutorial.
I have used my tiny hearts digital paper.  I used the Aqua and Pink papers.
Here is my piece :0)

 I used some Goodies from Really Reasonable Ribbon....the Tombow Foam Tabs  (to elevate some of my images), Pink Crochet lace,  Red Micro Gingham, and Deep Ivory Mulberry Roses.  I used my Bow it All tool and Red Seam binding to create a double bow that I placed above my bingo card and top of the heart on the one tag.  I also addded a piece of the Gingham across the bottom of the front of card, under the Cherub

They come in Chocolate,

Mixed Media Fairy Tags

Hello Friends!!
Today I have some cute tags to share with you.
I will be teaching these two tags at the
Gecko Galz Fairy Retreat in March
( is already sold out).
Not my normal style...these are a bit messy...but sure were fun to create!  I have not even resized any of the images or altered them you can purchase the sets and play along easy peasy.  One of my "Intentions" for the year was to try my hand at some mixed media!  So yesterday I played around a bit with some fun messy things...and came up with these two tags.

I have used Digital Images and Papers from Gecko Galz.  Ribbons from Really Reasonable Ribbon and Chipboard from 
Here I used two of the XL Oversized Chipboard Tags set of 3,
they measure 4" wide by 8" tall....fabulous!!  I would highly recommend you pick some up....Great pieces to alter!
I will be Guest Designing at Gina's in Feb....I do plan on creating tutorials may just want to play along!

 On my Second tag I used the same digital papers and sets as above and some of the Acid Green Diamond satin7/8 inch Pink Organza (tie at the top, hard to see) and Hot & Shocking Pink Diagonal Ribbon
Here are a couple close ups.
I used my Bow it All tool to create the double bow our of the acid green satin and I simply tied a knot with the light pink organza.  I used the Diagonal Ribbon to create the tiny banner. 
I used the Mini dots across my wagon and again I used the Bow it all Tool to create another double bow.
Here is a close up of the tag with another Double bow made with the Bow it all tool.
Bottom of the one tag.

I hope you enjoyed my post, and hope you have some time to pull out your ribbons, images, paints, pens and markers and have some messy fun!

I have a "LOVE" Challenge Starting today on the 
My Artistic Adventures Challenge Blog!!
(don't forget to visit and check out the Design Team's Projects"
There is a new

  Here is a new card I created using a new Digital paper Pack!
 I also used a couple other collage sheets Conversation HeartsValentine TicketsHearts and Cherub, and
Tiny Hearts Digital Papers Bitty Set.
Here are some Close ups of my card.
I used Cream seambiding  and the Bow it All tool to create my bow and Cotton Candy Baker's Twine to tie a bow in my button and wrapped around my heart image.  You will notice that the twine around the heart is knotted, to symbolize how "You have my heart tied up in knots."  Which is on the inside.
 I also used Tombow Foam Tabs to elevate all my images...and you can just see a peek of the Pink diagonal strip ribbon peeking out on the left of my card below from this month's Ribbon Assortment.
