Valentine Tags

Hi friends!  It is an overcast, chilly day here with snow/sleet/freezing rain/rain/snow expected tonight and tomorrow.  Quite a mixed bag!  Here in the States, it is Super Bowl Sunday but, frankly, my only interest is the half-time show.

With Valentine's Day fast approaching, I thought I'd better start making some crafts for the occasion.  Today, I have two tags to share.  Each one uses some old K&Co diecuts I've had in my stash for quite awhile.

I used pre-made tags for the base of each one with a heart doily from Hallmark under the diecuts.  Foam dots were placed under some of the diecuts for dimension.  Some of the images already had touches of glitter.  A piece of lace from Prima finishes this one off.

The next tag follows the same pattern as above.  I simply added a piece of something called "All Seasons Festooning by Bethany Lowe Designs" across the bottom and a piece of sheer ribbon with a flower at the top.

These precut images made these tags super fast and easy to put together.  Plus, it helped me use a lot of older things in my stash!

If you click on each image, you can see the glitter touches on each which, I think, really catches the eye.

I also made a couple of cards which I'll share another time.  I do have a couple more to make before the 14th gets here.  Wishing you a wonderful week ahead!  Thanks so much for stopping by and for your sweet comments.
