Always My Daughter Tag


     I am so excited to be here with you on WYEGW! In case you are wondering, this means we usually use a feature key in our booklets yet today we were to incorporate the use of a clear element as well. Since I am not one to shy away from a challenge I decided I would really love to try this.
     I really love tags. I always try to keep some on hand just in case I forget to make a card (ya right,lol). So I decided to make a tag to match the card box I made last week. It is a great way to use up scraps as well.
     I started with the tag from Picturesque on page <76> and cut one from cardstock and one using Grafix Clear Craft Plastic @ 2". For the clear plastic I used the multicut x2, speed 5 and pressure @4 with the deep cut blade on my Imagine.
     I chose the rose tag on page 51 tag shift @ 2" and used a Zig pen to adhere the top layer to the plastic and ran the backing card stock through my Xyron before putting it all together. My sentiment is by Pink By Design's "all in the family". In order to have it stick to the clear plastic, I used Archival Brilliance Coffee Bean.
     I always love to use some type of bling, so for this project I used Copper stickles to outline the rose petals on the top layer. Finally I used a copper eyelet to reinforce the hole on the tag and added a bow. You can find great prices in Erica's Store http://www.shop.ericascraftroom.com/. She carries a HUGE selection of craft supplies including Cricut cartridges, stickles, inks, well you name it and she has it, lol.
     I bet you wonder what is in the box, lol. Well, several years ago we were at Disney World and were in Norway @ Epcot when I smelt this wonderful fragrance. (I LOVE perfume!!!) Once inside the gentleman Geir was signing bottles of his fragrance "Laila". It was named after his mom. It turns out it is the official perfume of Norway and was in the gift bags handed out to the stars at the Emmy's! I wasn't the only one who loved this but one of my daughters and my daughter-in-law as well. I snuck back into the store while they we a ways ahead and bought 5 bottles. Yes I did keep one for myself. Well they all got one for Christmas that year and they treasure it to use only on special occasions. However, all of us have diminishing supplies so Amazon to the rescue! I was able to get her a bottle and can't wait to see her reaction. I highly recommend this perfume. Every time any of us wears it you ALWAYS have people ask what you are wearing it's such a clean beautiful fragrance . (It also stays with you the whole day.)
     I hope you liked my project for today. Be sure to see what my Design Team sisters also made @
