Hey Creative Scrapbooker Fans! For today’s blog post, I’m sharing with you my Do Everything With Love Tag. To create my tag, I’ve used a variety of dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs, patterned paper from Simple Stories, a variety of products from Ranger Ink,  and adhesive from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L. You’ll want to grab a cup of your favourite beverage and learn how to recreate my tag at home.
