A Tag Journal!

When my sweet cousin Cindy came to visit, she brought me lots of ‘pressies’! She filled a huge bag with crafting supplies from her stash and oh what fun I had playing with everything!

She also made a few pockets with tags. And that gave me an idea. I’ve seen the tag journals so I decided to make a couple of them.

I sent this one off to her. It was great fun to make and nicer that a thank you note, don’t you think?

The tiny photos are selfies she took with her phone and then printed out on her handy dandy printer!

Have you made anything like this?

I enjoy small projects more and more! And it’s nice when you have lots of new supplies to play with!

I love the tag you made for yourself the beads on it is so cute and the starfish. I would love to make one, but as Hubby says you have alot of crafts you are making now don't start any new ones. He is right this time, but don't tell him I said so HA! HA!

I love the idea of the tags, Diane. Do you actually take them apart and use them on gifts?

How special is that?? I’ve never seen something like this but I love it! My fingers are getting so arthritic that small projects are not my go to any more! But I sure do love what you made and I have a real fondness for tags!

Sandra said...

I have never seen anything like these, so cute and what a great way to make a gift..

Ann Thompson said...

Sandra sent me over to look at your tag journal. I love that. Great idea and I agree much better than a thank you card

Arlene Grimm said...

Small doable projects are becoming more appealing to me Diane. Love those cute tags. I have some tags, I should embellish them My Kendall loves doing collages so maybe she could help me.

Linda @ A La Carte said...

These are so cute! I love your crafty ideas and creativeness! I'm hoping I have more time to create soon! Hugs!!

Terri D said...

I've not heard of those either, but I'm not a crafter. Very sweet and I agree that it is much nicer than just a thank-you note!

Lorrie said...

Little projects like these are so cute and satisfying. Love the idea of one as a thank you gift.

aspiritofsimplicity said...

I've never made anything like that. I do think that they are quite pretty though.

Deborah Montgomery said...

What a great idea! I agree, small projects are so nice. No huge commitment, like the big old sweater I'm making! haha What a great gift, to get a lot of crafting supplies! xo Deborah

Love the tag you made, adorable. I’ve never made one but I’ve received them. Yes, they are special. Knowing someone took the time to make it just for me. Hope you are enjoying the week.........

I have not heard of a tag journal before but what a great idea and I really like the one you made.

Janey and Co. said...

Those are wonderful., and it sounds like she brought you the perfect gift. Sort of reminds me of trying to take a gift to my sister when we were house guests. She is a cleaning freak, so I filled a basket with every "new" cleaning product I could find. She loved it.
I have been traveling, so I am trying to catch up.Have a wonderful week.

BeachGypsy said...

I've never seen anyone do a tag journal, but it sure is cute, I love it! Very neat idea. Love all your new supplies she gave you. Are y'all staying cool down there? It sure is HOT HERE. Cant really be out in the heat of the day at all, so we venture out late in the evenings. Are y'all slowing down on your walking or keeping going in the heat?

BeachGypsy said...

PS... I forgot to ask--do y'all swim?

Maggie said...

Your tag albums are gorgeous and so much nicer to receive thank a thank you note, I haven't made tags for a while but I think I might begin again after seeing these lovely one.

Jill Harrison said...

these tag journals are lovely. Happy crafting with those supplies your cousin brought to you. Have a great week and thank you for stopping by my blog this week.

Simply Shelley said...

Vee said...

Clever idea! Much more personal and a gift in itself.

PS. I needed to check the word "pressies" ; Thank you very much for the chance to learn new word♪

Jeanie said...

I love tag journals. Years ago I did a tutorial for doing a tag recipe book -- I should repost that! Yours is darling!
