Love You Tag - By Mel Connell

Welcome to March everyone, Can you believe how fast this year is going already. It's crazy. 
March sees us coming into Autumn here in Australia and I am for one so looking forward a to a cool change. 

This Month also sees the release of the Hearts Ease Collection of dies and paper collection. 
Check out the gorgeous paper collection here

I wanted this month to create one more tag using the Vintage Rose Garden papers, these are still so so so gorgeous. This tag will give me 6 made in this collection and I plan the frame them all together. 

Start by covering a tag entirely with your favourite Vintage Rose Garden paper, I used Frame of Roses - CO723992, or you could jump right in with the beautiful new Hearts Ease papers here. Cover the entire Tag with the new 2 way Glue pen, in the wide tip, this gives amazing quick coverage. 

Trim off the edges and give it an edging of ink with one of the sponge Daubers. 
Cut one of the new Mirabilis Dies cuts in a matching paper or some of the plainer centre of the same paper. Also give the edges of this a blush of ink to high;right the gorgeous lacey edge. 

Now cut your self one of the Love, Laugh, Live words from the 12 x12 Green Words sheet. The centre Dies of the Mirabilis dies set fits exactly perfectly around these words. 
Cut out a few of the printed flowers fro the Frame of Roses paper to use as extra embossments for your tag. 

I added a self adhesive Pearl the centres of my flowers to give them a special little sparkle. Add in a few chipboard flourishes and layer all your elements up using the 3D Glue Dots. I just love these, so quick and easy to use to give instant dimension.
