What do you REALLY do with those beautiful tags you make???

So, do you Froggers (Friends that are Bloggers) remember this?

...that was turned into this?

Well, of course I couldn't give it to my friend like that, so I had to add some embellishments. Here's what I came up with...

Tag 1:

Tag 2:

Tag 3:

This tag includes my own key design that you can find here under Creations by Tami.

Tag 4:

This also contains my bird cage design, which you can find here as well.

Put all of these tags together, and this is what you get:

I was tickled to pieces because while I love to make tags, I never really know what to do with them. Since they are pieces of art in and of themselves, you can always just frame them as well. This gives me great ideas for Christmas! I SO can't wait!

I gave this piece to my friend, Kate, who owns the Cozy Crop House in Lancaster County, PA. If you've never been there, and you want a WONDERFUL weekend away with your Scrappin' Peeps, this is a great place! Kate makes sure you have a FAB experience. It's close to lots of Lancaster County attractions, and is very close to AC Moore, Michael's, and several local scrapbook stores. She also has some supplies on site in case you run out of necessaries, and she recently became a Ranger retailer. Woot, woot!
And, when you come for a weekend, you can see the above piece in all of its glory. Hey, Froggers! That, in and of itself, would be a great reason to come for a weekend!
So, if you decide to take some time out for yourself, book a weekend and let Kate know I sent you. Believe me, I don't get any kickbacks- just the satisfaction in knowing that I've helped out a good friend who runs an upright and wonderful business that blesses the socks off of women who need to get away for a while.

And, last but not least, here is some cuteness to brighten your day:

Stay tuned for some furniture re-dos. Believe me, I'm just as excited as you all!
Fondly, Tami


  1. I loved what you did with those tags. Sure did spruce up that little cupboard you refinished.
    And you dog is so cute

  2. your project turned out beautifully, Tami!!!

  3. That is so nice! Love the tags! and how you used them! now has Pear Pins like you used on the one with the brads :)
    Thanks for sharing!

  4. these tags are ADORABLE - I love how you redid this cabinet. GORGEOUS

  5. This piece is so beautiful. Your tags really make it something super special. Each tag has its own personality and yet they all work together nicely.

    I'll be sharing your friend's shop info. with some friends of mine who are big scrapbookers. This might be a great weekend adventure for them.

  6. That is really lovely! You did a fantastic job!

  7. What an awesome art project! Love all your tags and how you used them! Great idea! A special keepsake for sure!

  8. Thank you for joining the DT from Simon Says Stamp and Show with your fabulous Tags, wowzerssss love the colors and the embellies that you have used and then the cabinet changed into your fabulous piece of art wowzerssss absolutely fabulous. Hugs Terry xxxx

  9. You're tags are beautiful....and love how you transformed that cabinet....great idea. I never now how to use the tags either, so I try and stick to the atc's and then paste them to a larger card. But there sure are some really nice tags out there...and here.

  10. How beautiful! Love that you were able to include your own art in the transformation.

  11. Tami, I love your tags and I could actually afford to CASE them if I was so inclined. I too love to make tags but when they start to cost lots of $$$$ I have to question myself, because I hardly ever display my work. I share it with the company on hand and then it goes in a box or binder for a later time that never seems to happen.

    Thanks for sharing,


  12. Oh my goodness, this is totally awesome! I love all the variations of blue!


I love hearing what you have to say!
