Divas by Design - 'Tags'

Hello.. I hope you are all well today... it's the turn of Team A over at 

and this week we have the fab theme of...


So you can make a straightforward Tag or you can include the Tag somewhere on your project!! but we must be able to see a TAG!!! 

we are sponsored by the wonderful Shape EZ

and I have used the Shape EZ Flip Tree to make a tag....

Template:  Shape EZ Flip Tree
Pom Pom Trim: Stash 
Nailheads: JosyRose

I really like that you can resize the EZ templates - it makes them very versatile... and this was a very quick  make... I layered some digital paper onto the template and then printed out... cut out the pieces and layered up... added pom pom trim onto edge of each layer... and finally gold nailheads to look like baubles... it's quite a simple design but love how it came out! I am going to make a couple more of these - they will be nice to put on special Christmas Gifts for close family!! :-)

Hope you can pop over to our main blog at Divas by Design to check out the rest of the Team's fabulous Creations with Tags!

I would like to enter the following Challenges:-
Digi Sketch Challenge - 'Layer it Up' 
Tuesday Throwdown - 'Anything Goes' 
Fab'n Funky - 'Christmas in July' 
Sparkle Challenge - July - Challenge 30 - 'Christmas Trees'

I haven't done any crafting at all this week... it's too hot!! I'm staying by my lovely Tower Fan,  eating lots of Ice Cream and really thankful that I can do this... it must be really hard if you have to work in this heat!! I'm glad that my daughter has got a Fan at her workplace... and it's not too long until the weekend again now! :-))
Thanks for visiting my blog and for all your lovely comments!  
Take Care
Love and hugs

Gorgeous tag Sue, love the nailheads and the beautiful pom pom trim. Glad you are managing to keep cool, I am going to sit in the shade in the garden this afternoon and read. I haven't done any crafting for weeks, as luckily before the hot weather started I had all my DT cards made until September.

This is a great idea for a Christmas gift tag. From your description it seems so easy to make, so this is an idea for what I fear might be a last minute mass production gift tag project...

This is brilliant Sue, I love the pom pom trim and your gold nailheads make perfect baubles.
I haven't been doing much crafting in this heat either, plus my OttLite bulb has gone and I'm having trouble getting a replacement.
Look after yourself and keep eating the ice cream.
