Mother's Day Gift Tag

The Cri-Kits pens are so much fun to play with. I wanted to try something different and I know that making tags is really hot now, so here is what I came up with.


I used a black pen from the Regular/Neon pen set and my Gypsy to create my background for my tag....


Supplies: Cri-Kits Pens, Cricut Expression, Cricut Gypsy, White Georgia Pacific Cardstock,  Pearl Glimmer Mist,  Distressed Ink (Tattered Rose, Antique Linen, and Victorian Velvet), Prima Lace, Making Memories Ribbon, Flower (Wedding Section ACmoore), Thicker raw chipboard, Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel, Stampin' Up Jumbo Grommet, Fibers


Here is today's video. Enjoy and have a great week...

  9. Great video. I use pens with my cricut too and love it. My son is a machinist and made me my cricut pen holder. I use it all the time. I can get the pens at staples real cheap.
    Thanks again for making the video.

The ironic thing about your video, I JUST filmed a video SIMILAR to this for tomorrow because I had a question about the markers! Now, after seeing yours, I don't even want to upload mine because yours is OVER THE TOP GORGEOUS!! Mine is just plain & simple! lol...
    Have A GREAT day my friend!:)

  11. Great tag, thanks for the tutorial, I was wondering why they had the option to go back to the gypsy application without unloading the paper, your video expained it. I love all the techniques you used on the tag.

  28. Hey Christina! Great tag. I haven't made any tags, because I can't figure out what to do with them after they are finished? Your's is lovely! You do so well with the vintage look! I made a bookmark for a swap and I still haven't got it right... vintage isn't my normal style. But the way you did this tag has given me some ideas. Thanks
