Tags Of Inspiration | April 2014

It’s the end of another month and luckily I had time over the weekend to whip up a few tags. I’m sure I have said this before, but seriously, this is one of my most favorite projects ever. To see all of these pretty tags lined up in the box is really inspiring. I flip through them quite a bit when I am planning my pages.

(What are my Tags of Inspiration? Here’s my original post if you missed it and want the full details. I am simply making these tags as a trigger. They remind me of my tools, different embellishments, color palettes, border treatments, techniques to add to a page, etc… They are not exactly meant to be works of art  — some are much prettier than others — they simply provide me with inspiration if needed, when I’m working on a project.)

Here are my tags for April:
