Tag, You're It! - CTMH Technique Blog Hop

Welcome to the first Technique Blog Hop of 2019! For January we're featuring Tags and the many ways you can make and use them on your projects!

If you've come from Miss Carrie’s Creations you're doing fine. Just click the link in each post to go to the next blog in the hop.

I had a lot of fun making this layout using papers from the I Heart Us Collection. Lagoon is one of my favorite colors and I wanted to go more to the masculine side of things although this would still work for a girl, too. For the striped paper I cut out the section of colors I wanted from page. that set the tone for the rest of the page. It's a very easy page since I used a pattern from our How-to Book called Make It fromYour Heart Vol. 3. One of the stamp sets is our Operation Smile set. With each purchase of this stamp set Close to My Heart donates $7 to Operation Smile, a non-profit organization that provides surgeries for children with cleft lips and palates.
