Ann's Tips: This page is simple, yet attention-grabbing with its vibrant color combination. I used a makeup wedge to softly ink the stripes on the Color Me™ paper. Always ink the lighter colors first.

- indicates that the product page has a video demo.


  1. Place the Color Me™ Paper Ribbons paper with the ribbons going horizontally. With a makeup wedge, ink about 1 1/2” across the bottom with Yellow Ochre. Ink 3 more thick stripes across the page evenly spaced. Take another makeup sponge and ink the white spaces with Warm Red.
  2. Cut out the large tag and ink all over with Yellow Ochre. Ink the edges Warm Red.
  3. Mat a 5”x7” photo onto white cardstock, leaving a 1/16” border. Mat onto orange, leaving a 1/4” border. Glue to page 1” from the left and 1 1/2” from the top. Mat a 5”x3 1/2” photo on white, leaving a 1/16” border. Mat onto orange, leaving a 1/8” border. Glue to page 1” from the right and 2 1/4” from the top.
  4. Glue 3 pink roses from the Gisele paper roses along the bottom of the small photo. Add a small ribbon of pink gingham to the right of the roses as shown.
  5. Turn the tag horizontal and print a caption on it. Mat it onto orange cardstock, leaving a 1/8” border. Glue to page 2 3/4” from the right and 1 3/4” from the bottom. Glue a small pink gingham bow to the left of the tag.
