**EXCITING NEWS**
Since Emma didn't get to celebrate her 3rd year Anniversary in December (2013), she decided to celebrate it this month w/an EXTRA SPECIAL "FREEBIE" for THIS WEEKEND ONLY! YEP, for the FIRST TIME, the freebie will be a "DIE & a stamp"! So, you will get THIS ADORABLE set in your packages w/your purchase for THIS WEEKEND ONLY starting Fri, Jan 17th thru Sun Jan 19th ending at midnight PST! If you miss out on it, Emma will have it available for purchase in her store on Mon. Jan 20th!


For today's project, I made a tag. This will go on to a special friend for Valentines Day.

I cut this tag out of kraft cardstock and then again out of designer paper. Then, I picked several patterns out of the same pad and cut  varying width strips. I then lined them up on my cutting pad, directly butted up against each other. Then I placed the die on top and cut again. This gave me strips that had the stitching on the edges and I placed them on top of the tag. This gave a very nice panel in the center of the tag on which to put my main element. 


I stamped both of the hearts and then hand cut them out. I added a foam square to the smaller one and layered it on to the larger one. I stamped my sentiment and hand cut the flag end...I wanted it to look like an arrow. Then I cut a shorter piece of white from that same strip, and cut the "arrow" end. I tucked the ends under the heart, making it look like an arrow going through the center of the heart. The point end of the "arrow" looked like it was bare, so I added some tiny hearts to that end. I cut very tiny pieces of foam tape and popped them up. I then used my Wink of Stella clear glitter brush to add some shimmer.


I then added foam dimensionals under this element and added it the front of the tag. I picked out some lace ribbon from my stash, doubled it up, and tied it into a bow at the top of the tag. I then used a piece of hemp to tie on a string to attach with. I hope you like my tag, here is what I used.
