Another Simple Tags - Red & White

Sharing another simple tags today.

One of the girls named Shirley at the nurse's accommodation have asked me to make a tag for her after seeing my own room door tags. She likes the tags and wants to have it for her room door.

After doing a step card last year for her friend that looks like this...

Shirley wants the main color in red and white too and a tag design similar to the step card!

Here's what I did:
Shirley's Tags

And a closer look on each tag...

The name with design was computer generated
so it will be flat & can be easily inserted in the name pocket holder.

A mix of computer print out and stamping
Stamped Our Betty (from Funkyhand)
as well as the flower in the vase (from Pink Petticoat)
  and did some paper piecing.
Punch those super tiny butterflies.
 Applied glossy accents to punch butterflies, Betty's hair, vase and flower.
Pattern papers: Vintage Rose - Craftwork cards; Reflections - Prima 
& A Beautiful Life - MME

another computer generated word with design

and of course, she wants a quote too!

 Hope this simple tags inspires you to create one for yourself or your friends.

Simply simple Tags


Just wanna share the tags  made for my door at the nurse's accommodation where I live. Each room has a name holder for each room occupant/s and another sign holder to know which shift they are in (morning duty/afternoon duty/night duty), off duty or just inside the room. As I'm currently in continuous morning duty, I just made an inspirational tag along with my name tag. Hope it inspires the girls passing by my door!

Here are the tags:

Name was computer generated.

Words of inspiration was also computer generated.

Name & Inspirational Tags

Here's how it looks when place inside my door sign holder...

Be inspired and simply create tags now!!!

 The colors on this album are mostly blue & white with a drop of green and bits of other colors as well. The cover is made of chipboard covered by papers I've got in my stash. Bind this album using the Bind-it-All and 1 1/4" binding wires then decorated with ribbons. Flowers are fabric and ink with broken china distress stain.
