Tags with Pockets
The next step in the tag adventure is to add pockets. I'm not really a "pocket" type person, so unless some new inspiration strikes, this will probably be my only tag with one. I stamped one of my tags with a script background (can't remember from which stamp company). I used Walnut Stain distress ink. The pocket is made of vellum, covered with distress inks in Tattered Rose, Dried Marigold, Fired Brick, and Tea Dye. When it dried, I put it through my Big Shot with a Cuttlebug folder. I glued it onto my tag with Golden's Heavy Gel, and added the Love embellishment. Pretty simple.
My Christmas was pretty awesome. My husband pays attention to things when I think he's not looking. I got a 55 -200 mm lens for my Nikon, which I asked for. But I also got a craft table and a craft light to hook onto it. And then the real surprise - a portable lighting studio to take pictures of my cards and stuff! I was more than surprised. I'd never even mentioned anything like that to him. He said he's watched me walk around to find a good place to take pictures and thought this would help. He's such a sweetie!
