My Precious Daughter Tags for Swedish House Crafts

Hello, my friends! 

I'm happy to be sharing my first DT project for Swedish House Crafts today!

* * * * *
If you're not familiar with Swedish House Crafts, let me tell you a little bit about them.
It's a wonderful online shop, located in the United Kingdom.
They carry a specially selected assortment of Swedish made papers, stamps and dies. 
You really have to go take a look at all the unique and inspiring products. 
They are happy to ship anywhere in the world,
and great customer service is definitely a priority to the owner! :o

* * * * * onto my project:

You all know how much I love to make tags! 
 These gorgeous Pion images were shouting at me to make them into tags! :o)
The sentiments were even included. 
Take a look:

I simply trimmed out the images, and distressed the edges with both a tool and ink. 
I matted everything with a coordinating cardstock. 
Then I layered everything onto a cardstock tag base.

Each tag was decorated with flowers created with Gummiapan Flower Dies. 
Then finally, some seam binding was added to the top of the tags.

Here's a closer look at the pink tag. 
The flowers here were made using the Flower Dies 5 Set. 
The leaves were created with the same dies. 
They make such pretty flowers! 
I made one large one for the bottom of the tag, 
and some smaller ones for higher up.

Here is a closer look at the purple tag. 
Another beautiful image and sentiment set. 
The flowers are made with the Gummiapan Flower 3 Dies Set. 
It makes a completely different flower. Isn't it pretty?

Here's a look at the different flowers side by side:

Here's another look at the two tags together. 
I have two precious daughters. 
When they were little, one's favorite colour was purple, and one's was pink! :o)

I hope you enjoyed seeing my tags today!

These are the products I used from Swedish House Crafts:
