Romance Tag

Hi everyone!  It's a balmy 9 degrees Fahrenheit here today with strong winds.  We had only an inch or so of snow last night--just enough for treacherous driving conditions due to icing.  I was a nervous wreck waiting for my son to get home from work late last night.  Fortunately, he made it home safely.
Valentine's Day was yesterday.  I received roses from my husband as well as a bit of a shopping spree at an online craft store.  I opted for that over dinner out--I figured the craft supplies will last longer!

While making my Valentine cards this year, I had some leftover hearts that I cut from a Tim Holtz die and thought I would use them on this tag.  If you click on each image, you can see the details better.

The patterned papers are from Prima's Romance Novel collection and were layered onto a kraft tag.  I fussy cut the roses and tags on the lower left.  I layered the hearts slightly off onto the die cut kraft hearts.  The hearts and fussy cut roses were adhered with foam squares for dimension.  I added Prima roses to the centers of each heart.  The rhinestones are from Recollections, and the tea-stained twill is from my sweet friend Melissa Phillips.

I think this tag could be used for just about any occasion besides Valentine's Day.  I really love that Tim Holtz die!  I am linking this tag to the Monday Challenge at Simon Says Stamp.

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by.  I appreciate all your kind comments.  Have a wonderful week!


  1. Gorgeous Valentine tag! I need tag making lessons from you!:-) Your tags are always so lovely! Love the hearts, paper, and gems! Glad you had a wonderful Valentine's Day! The weather here was unsafe to go out with the blowing snow! Only a couple inches, but the blowing snow caused white out conditions! Anyways, love your tag! Hope you have a great week, hugs!

  6. OMG! This just might be the prettiest tag I've ever seen! Love the papers you used....and that heart die! **Sigh!** I wish I could use TH dies on my Quickutz machine, but sadly they are too thick!...maybe its time I invested in another machine! Seriously gorgeous work my friend!! xo
