valentine's day tags swap

I've always enjoyed exchanging cards and gifts for Valentine's Day. We try to make our Valentine's Day exchanges special by coming up with unique Valentine's. One year we did this. (They didn't look quite as good as hers, but we tried). I am hoping to try this, this, this, and this in the future (maybe this year).

I joined a few Valentine swaps. As I said, I love exchanging cards and gifts for Valentine's Day. I joined Natalea's Valentine Tag Swap. For these tags, I used pink polka dotted fabric as the base. I added glittery, paper roses and a coffee stained tag with vintage French paper. I also used some of the the pink polka dot netting ribbon from Heather's shop

I stamped a red heart onto the tag and added a rhinestone to each one. The heart stamp I used was the same one I used for the Alice in Wonderland tags I made a few months ago. (The stamp is from a Close to My Heart set, which I love).
I sent along one of my new Moo cards to each participant:
Here they are wrapped and ready to go:
Check out the tags I received in return here and here on Natalea's blog. This one is one of my favorites.

  10. Your tags are so fun! I am totally in awe of the amazing crafts you get done when you have three girls to keep up with! Everyone tells me I'll have no time for crafting after this little comes. I think I'd rather let the laundry slide than give up making stuff! :)

  11. Really pretty as always Jessica, I like how the little red crystal on the heart really gives it some extra cuteness. Nice how you always have just the right amount of detail.

  15. the tags look lovely.. I especially like the last piece as it has such a Alice in Wonderland-ish flair even though its not. I;m a sucker for using book pages in crafts. I'm not a big pink fan, I'm not a girly girl but it does all look lovely.

    I still haven't finished your craft swap but I'm hoping to get it finished this week as M is working later tomorrow night so that means i can craft while I watch a terrible movie. that's my plan anyway.
