Welcome to our From the Heart Stamps blog hop. Our theme this month is “For the Bird{brains}”. Our designers are showcasing lots of gorgeous projects.

As you hop along, please leave a comment on each entry. One random commenter will be selected on each blog to win an image of choice from the FTHS store. Some Design Team members are also giving away the actual project they create for the hop, too. So, you may win an image and a card or project from some of the blogs! And additionally, one commenter on the From the Heart Stamps blog will be selected to win a $15 gift voucher to the store!

We are offering another really cool prize on the FTHS blog! Have you ever had a great idea for a Birdbrain image? Well, this is your chance! One lucky winner randomly selected from all the comments will be selected to work with Faith to design a Birdbrain image!

And, we would like to invite all of you to be a part of our hop this month, with the DT! There is an inlinkz on the bottom of the post here, at FTHS, and on each individual blog. Use one of the designer’s tutorials and your favorite Birdbrain image to create a project to play along. We can’t wait to see what you create! If you are interested in guest designing for FTHS over the next few months, simply add GDT to your entry. We are looking for six people to guest design for two month rotations over the next 6 months. Hope you will print off your favorite Birdbrain and play along!

If you have arrived from Kelly, you are in the right place, if not why don’t you start on the From the Heart Stamps blog, so you don’t miss anything.

Here is my project… I made a tag using Birthday Burger Birdbrain.

FTHS Burger BB

I sometimes like to make my own tags, so I can make them whatever size best suits my needs. This one starts as a rectangle 2 3/4″ X 5 1/2″. I measured once inch down and marked both sides then marked two points on either side of the center. I trimmed the corners from these points and used this as my tag base…

Tag 2

I picked some designer papers that match my image and a variety of circle punches. For more ‘pop’, I backed each circle of DP in a larger circle of red. I randomly place the dots on the tag placing the image as well until everything fits like I want it to.

Tag 3 Tag 4

Tag 5

I adhere the the dots first, and run it through the Cuttlebug using my all time favorite embossing folder – a Happy Birthday folder. Then I used my oval punch and a circle to create the top of the tag and adhere it, the image, and the sentiment to the embossed tag. I chose ribbons and run them through together and bind them with a button and some twine. Tag 6

That is all there is to it. Now it is ready to put on a package…
