Gift Tags Blog Hop with Imaginisce, Echo Park and Spellbinders

I sure do love a good little BLOG HOP!  You should have arrived here direct from the Imaginisce blog and I hope we teased you with our tags.  I was so excited when I got the generous gifts from Echo Park and Spellbinders! I just love doing swaps with other manufacturers. Thanks so much!

I have to admit that I didn't use my Spellbinders dies for this project because I couldn't find my CuttleBug at the time I was making my tags. Note to self: do not clean your scraproom because then you can't find anything.  LOL. Anyway, I have since found it and have already made a few projects with it that I will be revealing soon.  THANK YOU SPELLBINDERS!

So, when I started making my tags I actually decided I wanted to make "calling cards" for my daughter since it was the end of the school year and she wanted to make sure a few of her friends could call her for summer play dates.  I liked them so much that I decided to do another one but this time I planned to use it as an actual gift tag for a birthday party we had last weekend.  These might not be what you traditionally think of when we talk "tags" but they serve the same function. :) You can write a greeting and your name or your phone number in my daughter's case on the back.
Supplies: Imaginisce Enchanted, Animal Crackers and Happy Camper Collection; Echo Park Candy Shoppe Dots & Stripes Collection; Fonts - JoliScript, Cutie Pop, Starry Night; Imaginisce i-rock and glam rocks

I had a ton of fun with these, playing with different fonts that I downloaded from the Internet for free!  Then I just started stacking it all together, some popped up, some not, and I got my fine tip scissors out because every single little element (trees, flowers, carriage, birds, clouds, banner...) were fussy cut.

My daughter was so proud to hand these out to her friends at school and I have gotten so many compliments from the moms :blush: and Rheagan has a couple of play dates set up! 

Here's a picture of the tag on the gift bag.  I plan to make more of these for all our presents now, whether it's a gift bag or wrapped box. 


I have to tell you that the Echo Park Dots & Stripes paper that I got were great matches to the Imaginisce lines. It smells good too (don't ask).  THANK YOU Madison and all of ECHO PARK!!!

GIVEAWAY!!!

Make sure to head on over the talented Miss Frances' blog but BEFORE YOU GO, I'd love it if you'd leave me a comment and follow my blog so that you can have a chance to win a selection of Imaginisce Happy Camper Papers, a selection of Echo Park Papers and a set of Spellbinders Nestabilities. How's that for a FABULOUS prize?


When you have finished your blog hop go back to the Imaginisce blog and leave a message to say your finished and to be entered in todays give-away. Winner will be announced at the end of this week! THANKS!

Your tags are so cute! Unless I know a card will be really appreciated, I find a tag is best for a kids parcel. Easy to read, add a nice decorative touch and are fast and fun to make!
Thanks for sharing your tag inspiration! :)

What an awesome idea! I'm sure all the Mom's were impressed with those calling cards! Believe me, I would be calling if my daughter brought one of those home! I would want my daughter playing at your house for sure! I think I just found a project for one of our American girl nights (it's our unoffical FREE craft club at my daughters bff's house over the summer)! These are beautiful and fun! Thanks for sharing the great idea!
