Product Focus Week 5: Tags


Welcome back to this week's "Product Focus." In these weekly blog posts, I'll share a scrapbooking product I'm particularly drawn to, and then share some ways I've used the product in a project. I'll point out tips and tricks for using the product, share some of my favorite products from that product line, and then I'll open it up for any questions you might have. I'd also love to hear your reviews or uses for the product I focus on each week. This is a chance for you to pull out products you already own and play with them or for you to discover new product you might not have yet tried.


This week I wanted to focus on a versatile product: tags. Tags can serve as a stand-alone element on your layout, or as the foundational piece for layering. Tags come in a variety of styles, sizes, and colors and can be hand made, cut from a die cut machine, or purchased in pre-made form.


Here are a few of my favorite tag products (click the photos for links to the products):





Below you will find a gallery of projects that use tags. Hopefully these will give you some new ideas for using tags on your projects.

Idea #1: Layer items on a fabric tag.

Idea #2: Stamp and hand cut your own.

Idea #3: Tuck and layer several behind your photos to create a vignette.

I'd like to ask here how you are using tags. Are you creating your own? Do you tuck them behind a photo? Do you use them for journaling? Share your completed projects through links in the comments section or by sharing your ideas with the other readers. If you have a question about tags, please post it in the comments section below. I will answer some of them in my next "Product Focus" post, and I may just feature one of your projects in an upcoming post.

  2. I use tags on layouts and cars all the time. I often stamp them. You can see a sample on this blog post.

    I like how you mentioned tucking them behind photos. I'm going to try that. TFS

  5. Love all of these. I generally use tags for hidden journalling as I did here:http://handmadebykirsty.blogspot.co.uk/2013/02/back-to-counterfeiting.html
    recently. Love your layered embellishments too though
