You Should Know That You Are...

This is another layout created using Swirlydoos kit and some Clear Scraps acrylic tags. I know most of us use tags for journaling and etc. But have you ever thought of using it to create a design on your layout? Clear Scraps acrylic tags are just perfect for this technique.

Here are some details on it.

Check out the close up above. I've used two different sizes of acrylic tags on this layout. On the bigger tag, I've attached a few layers of pattern paper on it from it's back and later, I've stamped on the top of the tag. On the smaller acrylic tag, I've attached a piece of pattern paper from it's back and then stamped on top of it too. I've used these two tags to create a design on the right of the layout.

Besides using the date stamps to stamp your date for the layout, you could also use it to stamp a border. You could also use it to create some other design on your layout. I guess I will attempt on create another design using it in my future projects.

Hope that after today's post, you all will have more ideas in using tags and the date stamps. Have fun!
