Hello FJ friends!
I’m delighted to share another Shay Kit project with you here on the blog today.
I absolutely love the new Shay Tag Builder Metal Die Set and it inspired to create a layout design featuring tags.
I decided on the stripes paper as my border and adhered some white cardstock in the centre as the background before stitching around the edge.
I chose a selection of papers from the kit, a dot paper, a grid journaling card and one of the Shay Library cards, then cut them into five tag shapes using the metal dies and my die cutting machine. I also cut my photo into a tag shape too! I really love how the photo looks as a tag! Three hole reinforcer pieces were cut using the dies and adhered to three of the tags, then all six tags were arranged onto the layout.
I cut a long piece of white twine from my stash, tied it to the first tag then threaded the extra long tail through the tops of the rest of the tags. A couple of staples helped to keep the twine in place and nicely arranged around the page.
It was then time to decorate the tags! The journaling was printed onto vellum and stapled to the yellow tag. I then had fun adding die cut words, labels and florals, puffy word stickers and an arrow sticker from the Shay Kit, a bow, a chipboard flair, a mint paper clip, crepe ruffle trim, some messy thread and stitching.
The date was stamped using the FJ Roller Date Stamp under the bottom right tag to finish the page.
I love how this page has turned out and I just know I’ll be using these metal dies over and over again! While the die set was not included in the Shay Kit, you can find it listed separately in shop in the Shay Kit section…plus it coordinates perfectly with the Shay Stamp Set too! It’s a must have and my new favourite dies!
