Happy Spring Tag ~ Celebrate Life!

Yes, today is Vernal/Spring Equinox here in the Northern Hemisphere.... It is also first official day of Spring for most as well ~ even though the weather might not reflect it.

What better time than now to Celebrate Life!

And since Altered Pages has teamed up with The Robin's Nest this month they make the perfect pair for this pair....  

A card in a tag!

So I figured this would be the best of both worlds ~ a card and a tag meshed together in one.  The tag base is from Altered Pages which I colored using Gelatos; I then cut and mounted a piece of Kiwi Sorbet cardstock.  I created a little pocket using the stripe side of the Bunny Cardstock.  The paper lace and card were both constructed from The Robin's Nest Purple Ants Glitter Cardstock.

I embellished the tag pocket with a bit of brown ink along the edges; rub-ons from the Viva sheet of rub-ons; a bit of pen work (using a Micron .05 pen) and a few pearly Dew Drops.   I finished the tag off with a bit of vintage seam binding.

To make the card I used the beautiful little Spring girl from the Easter Children collage sheet which was inked then matted and mounted on the mini purple card.  To help coordinate with the tag I added a bit of pen work and a few dots of Stickles Glitter Glue to the flowers.

  1. Roni, I knew this was yours as soon as I saw it. Love the colors you chose and the Easter Children collage sheet girl is adorable. I love the idea of adding pockets to tags with a smaller card tucked inside. Maybe I can do that for some of my ATCs. Anne, yourmainestamper

  2. Adorable tag and card!!! You could also add a gift card inside the pocket too. Awesome job! <3

  3. Such a delightful project Roni, I love how you have created the pocket on your tag to hold your pretty card! xx

  4. I love your tag idea with the pocket. Pockets are always a fun addition. TFS your Spring creation.

  5. I like the tag with the pocket and the darling card to put in the pocket♥ Happy Spring!!

  6. What an adorable tag and card... love these. The pocket is a great idea!!!

  7. I've made a pocket on a card to hold a tag but never the other way around! What a great idea! Very cute set.

  8. This is so pretty, Roni. I love the card within a tag idea. So many lovely layers. I love the use of jet black too. It really sets off the other colors and makes everything pop.

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
