I loved using the Fancy Pants Cork Heart and Arrow Shapes on the tags. You can also get cork stars. The tags from this collection are super, and it was hard to decide which one to use first. I put the baby shower photo on the perfectly matched frame, which is probably a journal tag, and inserted a journal tag behind that. Julie was so tiny at seven months, that I used a cork arrow to point to her tummy. The lace around the wedding photo is trim I got in the FlamingoScraps Warehouse Grab Box - Embellies, and I soaked it in coffee to get the color. The metal tags, and the tulle they are are on, are also from the grab box. If you haven't gotten yours, you've got to get it! They rock! You can choose from the box of papers, embellies or a mix of both. It's a great deal; you can't go wrong.
I had cut the circle on the wrong section of the paper, but, not to fear! A mixture of different rub ons from my stash soon took care of that problem. I "scored " the brown paper in the circle with a gray chalk pen, after I had inked it, to make it match the balloon on the first page. Once again, I used a cork heart, topped with an "E" and tied on with a tulle bow. Prima Bling SIIC and SIIP, wooden clocks, and mini roses helps to complete the "frame" around the photo. I used the balloon to help tie the two pages together, like I did with the scored paper.
I happened to have a sheet of sticky back cork in my stash, and used it here as a frame to represent a cork board that you put photos and memos on. I used Maya Road Trinket Pins - Yellow and Turquoise Stars to pin the word "FAMILY" on, and star pins on the top for decoration.I also used the Maya Road Trinket Pinks Hearts and Pearls. Also available are the AWESOME Nirvana Typography Stamp Sets by Marion Smith as well as the Nirvana Flying High Stamps also by our talented friend Marion Smith !
