Elegant Shaker Tags
by Olga Direktorenko

Just can't stop playing with the new Stitched Tunnel Tags!

To make this set of tags I have combined some dies from the new release with some older ones. Butterflies are starring in every project - it's amazing that you can create so many designs just by changing the background slightly and adding one or two new elements to each tag! 

The beginning to end VIDEO TUTORIAL is also here to watch!

Love You Always
by Olga Direktorenko

This masculine Valentine's Day Tag is made entirely with the dies and stamps from Poppystamps January Release

Because I have added so many layers the tag feels like it's made of chipboard or plastic. I also like the fact that it can be used as home decor.

You can find the instructions on how to make it in the VIDEO TUTORIAL down below:
