Welcome to Thursday Totally Tags ‘n’ ATCs over at!  Every Thursday we on the Design Team will do a team post featuring Tags n' ATC's.  We will have a specific Theme each week featuring an element, technique or embellishment.  We’ll all come up with something excitingly different – using various types of tools, etc. to create our projects...i.e., Cricut, CAMEO, Spellbinders, punches, stamps, paint, material, lace, inks, etc.   The sky's the limit!  The only restriction...  If we use SVG's or Digi's, we will only use those from the vast selection at PCW.

Spring is a time of "new beginnings" and we love to see things "take root, blossom and grow”, we decided it was a good time to announce some changes to our Challenges and Link Ups.  Here is the link to Melin’s explanation of how things will work now.  Be sure to pop over there and be included in the creative fun! 

The Theme for this week’s projects is PINK!  I used the papers for these two Tags on the card I made for Tuesday’s post and really liked how they went together, so I decided to use them again here.  I made Two rather than the One ‘required,’ as after making the first one, I saw the possibilities of using the ‘negative cuts’ from the cutting file on that one.  Here they are  - with comments following –

*  I cut the tags from white cardstock and then the next layer from the Pink prints.  I used the new ‘Tag Ornamental cf.’  For the top layer, I also used that file, and cut it from white cardstock.  I inked the edges of all pieces with Mauve ink.  I also inked the centers of the motifs for depth.  I added rhinestone gems and pearls and a white picot-edged satin ribbon to the top.
*  While taking the cut design off of the CAMEO mat, I noticed that the ‘negative cuts’ could be used for a ‘Royal’ motif – so I made a second Tag using them!  I adhered several pieces to accentuate and enhance the ‘crown’ shape.  I added small rhinestones and pearls.  I inked the pearls with Mauve ink and I stamped the Flourish in Mauve on an angle at the top.  I added a ‘2-tone white’ sheer ribbon to the top.  Can you see where the pieces came from?

Here is the file I used -

  1. Pretty tags! I love how you used the scraps from the other one. I really should try that sometime, I never really look at my scraps from cuts, I will start to now :)


  2. Beautiful tags Lynden and how clever to make a tag using the negative pieces!! Hugs!

  3. Lynden love that you used the negative pieces to make another tag. Very smart! Both are so pretty!
