While sitting with a friend of mine..she said she was planning for a gift and a card for her hubby ,something where she could write down her feelings and every note should emerge as a beautiful surprize ...and something which could be hung in her room :) Since she and her hubby both are coffee addicts and spend their most special moments while sipping coffee... i thought i will make something that will make her happy....so came up with an idea to do something with coffee theme along with the expression of love :)
I am here today sharing Tags in a Tag... :) Minimum 7 tags can be slipped inside the seperate pockets and sleeves...,maximum is up to u :) There is also a Slip In Journalling Notecard where you can write your thoughts and wishes both in front and back side. This can also be hung on the wall as a decor piece....:)
Also, i wanted to enter the More Than Words Mini Challenge where the word Magic has to be used.
To put my ideas into existence my Heartfelt Creations Goodies smiled at me and here i go with my favourite HC products used here...

Take a Tag of 3.5 " by 8.5". Ink up the edges with Distress inks. Stencil it with the diecuts.
Choose 6"/6" Blazing Poppies Paper. Cut a straight mark on the pocket top edge to make the real pocket to slide a tag in it. Fold at 2.5 " with small part showing blue denim pocket in front and bigger part at the back of the Tag.Apply glue on the fold crease,on the top edges and bottom edges and adhere on the left edge of the tag. This will have side openings or a sleeve to slip in tags and notes both in front and back.
Die cut the Fleur Borders and Pockets and other dies,,ink them up with desired color effect of your choice,i used green and red.
Stamp the coffee mug,spoon,and latte image with Black Archival Ink,die cut and ink up with distress inks and watercolors. Make a slit at the opening of the coffee mug to insert spoon and latte heart in it.
Take another 6"/6" Blazing Poppies paper,place Regal Borders and Pockets Die on one edge of it and run through die cutting machine. Ink it up.
Die cut the Tags from Blazing Poppies and Raindrops on Roses Paper Collection with Lugguage and Tag Dies.Ink up the edges. Leave them blank for journalling.
Stamp and die cut the leaves and flowers and bird,color them with watercolors.
Stamp the letters on pre inked cardstock and cut them manually and stick over black cardstock. I cut them unevenly to give a little shabby look to it :)
Start placing as a rough layout first and once contented with your placement,start adhering according to your style.
Spell the Magic of Heartfelt Creations again and again :)
