Tags, Tags and more Tags....

You know they say when you think you have a problem
the first thing to do is admit that you have a problem..

OK...  Maybe just maybe I have a little problem.
I have a love of making Tags..  It all started so innocently..




Like this one..  I made this Tag years ago..  I used to love
to make a Tag and give them away with a book!!  So really it wasn't
a Tag...   It was a bookmark..



And Then that's when my little obsession started..
I stumbled on to this wonderful little blog..
Kard Krazy..  I thought I had died and gone to Heaven
A blog with people who love to make tags as much as
I do!!    Here is the very first Tag I made for Tag Tuesday!!
That was back in Dec of 2009.



And I kept on playing making these little pieces of art!!!



Now I just counted and in my craft room right now I only have a little
over 40 tags..  I don't think that is too many..  Anyway some of them were
gifts from my wonderful blog friends..

So What do you think?  Do I need an intervention?
Do you have the same problem?
How many Tags do you have?


Well of course I have another Tag to show you..
 It if for this weeks challenge!
Louise is challenging us to make a Tag with a Tag on it..
What could be better than that!!


So here is what I came up with..  I just love this image. I think she is the sweetest..
Of course some stitching and some lace and some seam binding and
some pretty flowers and you have one pretty tag..


With a little Tag that says "love".. perfect for this time of year!!
Can't wait to stop by and see all the other Tags over

Thanks Louise for another fun week.. And giving me so much inspiration for
my little problem..

Hugs, Linda

Oh Linda,I wouldn't say you have a problem,however,I do,and mine is that you don't live round the corner lol! How I would have loved to have had you with me,I found the most perfect fabric shop,full of vintage goodies,wooden tags,yes TAGS! And vases full of pretty buttons ready to make a pick and mix of gorgeousness! I'll share my scrummy buttons on myblog later. There were skeins of threads and lace and ribbons...... You should have been there:) youd have had a field day. Keep on making your lovely tags,have a lovely weekend,Juliex

Hi there tag mad person..... nah not a real problem! but I'm glad to see them on display, would be a shame to hide the beautiful creations away. I share your love of tags but realised that I could only use them on cards so I stopped making them for a while.
Yours are stunning!!!:0) xxx

Love it Linda! That image is adorabe and I love how you composed your tag. My favorite stitching and all those pretty embellishments. If it's a "problem" I'm not going to discourage you. :-)

Ros said...

Hey Linda ... I'm like that with cards!!! I make them ...send them ... give them ... and still I am overflowing ... yet I never seem to have the right one so have to make another Ha Ha ... love your sweet tags ... they are your journey in creation (take up less room too ... why didn't I think of that!)

Ros said...

Oooops! forgot to say just how beautiful this is ... stunning

Cynthia Schelzig said...

I think we both need to check in to Hilda´s Tagaholics Cure Center and go cold turkey!!!
I broke out in a hot sweat when I saw the BOARD full of TAGS!!! then the box full of TAGS!!! My heart was pounding...yup, I think I have to check myself in ...pronto!! Your tag for Tuesday is super and just think...as full as the board already is...this can be the first one on the SECOND board full!!!! Have a great weekend! I am off to a whole weekend of painting....fun, fun...

Terry said...

Actually, I doubt that any of us notice that you have a problem. Is there some about "birds of a feather." No, I don't think so! Lovely tags and I love each and every single one! Hugs my friend!

Lynn Richards said...

Janna said...

You can never have enough tags, especially when they are as awesome as yours :D have a nice weekend, Janna

Sylvia said...

Linda, No intervention needed! All the tags at least have a reason and a purpose, if nothing else when you need one you will have just the right one! These are beautiful and the new one is beautiful as well. You have a way with your colors and photo's. Have a fun weekend. How's the cat?

Lynn Stevens said...

A Vintage Chic said...

Hi, Linda! So wonderful to meet you! Thanks for coming over to say hello so I could find your lovely blog as well!

LOVE your tags! They're all so gorgeous--no intervention needed, my friend! Keep 'em coming! I love that sweet angel/fairy image, too--one of my favorites!

Hope you're having a wonderful weekend!

Paper Paradise said...

Gorgeous, the image is so beautiful and works a treat with the vintage style embellishments, beautiful! I too LOVE tags and have done for years. I have the old ones stashed away somewher, must dig them out and store them altogether. Great to also see how our styles change over the years. I used to work with very grungy dark colours and 'wierd' images but now prefer pretty, vintage style. Keep the tags coming, hey are gorgeous! Sue x

Jacqueline said...

Linda, I love your post - you do make the most beautiful tags and I would say to continue with your crafting therapy!! Just gorgeous!!

Davi said...

Ahhh Linda, I love tags also. The first tag I made was for Tag Tuesday. :) Yours are all beautiful...love that sweet image with the lovely flowers. :)

Nancy said...

Love your sweet tag...that image is adorable and you've enhanced it with your lovely style!
I think making tags is a very positive obsession, especially when the tags are as gorgeous as yours!

Cindy Adkins said...

Oh my gosh,
this is gorgeous Linda!!! WOW!! I think tags are like a little world on a card!
Happy Valentine's Day--I hope it is a wonderful day!!!

Becca said...

I love this! That image i so sweet, and you really made it look so cute on your tag. I LOVE that you make tags! I like to make them too, but they NEVER turn out like yours do! xo

june lanum said...

LOVE those tags

Linda M. said...

Hi Linda, You have some amazing tags. I just recently started to make tags and I'm really seeing how you can become addicted. They are fun to make and are great little gifts. Linda

mustavcoffee said...

Hi there Linda, I have something for you on my blog:0) xxx

Faye said...

Linda, Your tag on tag entry is so gorgeous. I have the same addiction as you. I love making tags. I sometimes don't know if they are bookmarks or if they are tags. I'm pretty sure the ones I give to the homebound folks must be tags since some have really bad eyesight.

JannaStamps said...

Linda your tag is so very beautiful!!!!

Mona L. Pendleton said...

NO problems here Linda! I think making tags is your intervention :) Papercrafting is a great form of therapy! ALL of your tags are gorgeous and your latest is beautiful! That sweet Vintage image and your stitching looks fabulous! I say~keep making those tags :)

Tracy said...

Hey Linda! It's me again. There's a little something for you on my blog. :-) Hugs! Tracy

Wendy said...

Oh I don't think that's a problem at all. I too love to make tags but I give a lot of them away so I probably don't have more than a dozen or so.
You'r tag is wonderful. Thanks for visiting my blog.

Life At Camellia Cottage said...

Some obsessions are problems, others are joys - I put making tags into that latter category! They are so much fun to make!!! And yours truly are little pieces of art - just beautiful!

Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving such a sweet comment on my birdhouse tag! Blessings, Becky

Lori said...

Your tags are too beautiful to be considered a problem! Love, love this card - the image is the sweetest!

Silvia(Barnie) said...

How wonderful, another tag mad person :) I love making tags, too.

Diann said...

It is a most beautiful tag on a tag...beautiful!

Gayle said...

Hi Linda , your tags are beautiful, I think they look great "on mass".Your recent tag on a tag is delightful. If you HAVE to have an addiction making tags is a great one.You know you could make your tags into a book..the book of tags.

Nerrida said...

The first tag is gorgeous but the display of them all together looks absolutley fabulous - what a gorgeous piece of home decor - love it!

Louise (KardKrazy) said...

Frankly I'm concerned that you ONLY have 40 tags when we are in our 87th week at Tag Tuesday....LOL! I know your little collection if filled with gorgeous tags because each time I visit your blog I find the most amazing work.
And today's tag is no exception!

Cheryl Nelson said...

Gorgeous!!! And one can definitely not have too many tags!!

Linda64 said...

Linda, thank you for showing us some of your tags and I don't think you have a problem at all. I just love your tags, and are the very happy owner of one of them <3 , the last one here is gorgeous and yes.. Love the image...

Tracey said...

Stunning tags !!! and yes I have the same obsession, my husband just doesn't get it at all, he thinks it is strange to be so consumed by them ( what does he know lol) Beautiful card too, thankyou for sharing xxx

Cheryl said...

Beautiful tags! They truly are works of art.

Lori said...

Gorgeous Linda! Love the stitching, really adds to it! And the little flowers are gorgeous!

Suzanne C said...

The little cupid with the arrows is so adorable. Super sweet tag! If you have a problem I think we know a bunch of us who could join you! Consider us your support group although we probably will encourage you to continue in your existing condition. :)

Audrey Pettit said...

Oh, I am seriously, seriously in love with your tag!! How gorgeous! LOVE that image and love the brown seam binding. You do tags beautifully!
I'm so happy you shared some of your previous tags and your tag pinboard. Now I want one of those. How cool to have something that beautiful to hang somewhere.
