Tag of the Month....HaPpY VaLenTinE DaY!

I thought it would be fun to do a tag of the month. Not an in depth technique type tag but just an eye candy, fun, playful paper doll tag of the month. Because that's just what I do...fun, cute, pretty colors. Yes, I know, I missed January! January was a busy month, filled with making samples for CHA, scheduling classes, ordering supplies and starting the class samples. With all that behind me, I am more than ready for some fun!
This is my newly released stamp "Pricilla" hitting the stores as we speak. I have to admit, she was not my favorite stamp and now that I have had a chance to work with it  I love her! Her ruffles, leggings and hat are so much fun to play with. She's a bit steampunk and I know we usually think of the dark, grungy colors when we think steampunk. I decided to lighten her up a bit for Valentines Day.
I love the feminine look of pink and brown with lace and ruffles...who doesn't? I dug into my paper stash and found the perfect paper for the tag itself...a gorgeous paper from the Prima Fairy Rhymes collection designed by Jodie Lee. It went perfectly with a Valentine paper collection by My Mind's Eye that I fell in love with. The tiny metal lock and key is new product of mine that comes with crowns and handbags that fit perfectly with my stamps.
When I make my tags, I simply just start pulling beautiful paper combinations together and start cutting! I then pull any embellishments that I know will fit perfectly with my theme. I then just move things around until I am happy with the composition and start gluing. It's just that simple!

Here are a few of the items I used that you might like;

Prima Pricilla stamp  910549
Prima metal Icons      910587  ( the tiny lock and key)
Prima Fairy Rhymes paper 950361 for tag
Prima All About Me paper 971113 (her stockings and a current fave of mine)
My Mind's Eye Record It collection...sorry, I chopped off the numbers, but it's in all the stores now.
  This is used for the background, her dress and the cut out heart.
Prima Junkyard Findings  891794 (these are the darling metal gears with heart shapes)
Prima Brad  570026

  6. Thanks for the eye candy! I absolutely adore the Nutting girls, and I am so glad that my family of dolls will soon be growing larger. I plan on having lots of fun with this steampunk cutie, and the new Cowgirl doll stamp. Also, I hope to be able to add some of the cutting dies to my collection (I love the hair dies the most). Thanks so much Julie for sharing your creative talent with us!!!
