Laurie Schmidlin is featuring Bite Size Tags + Truffle Tote Box Dies

I think now of my favorite things about the Bite Size Tags dies is the small reinforcement tabs that are includes. That little pop of color adds such a nice, professional looking finished detail. Not to mention it also serves the function of helping the twine from ripping through the tag.

Bite Size Tags
Laure always has such a way with adding beautiful layers but not making things too fussy. You can see how she took full advantage of the embossed center of the scalloped frame, allowing the stamped dotted frame and apple to tuck nicely into that space.

Truffle Box Duo (detail 2) by Laurie Schmidlin
Aren't these just the sweetest? I love how Laurie used the width of the new Truffle Tote Box to the fullest with a long narrow label that fits three pieces of fruit. The fruit in this set has such a bold clean look to it, ink blending works beautifully with it.

Lovin From Oven - Steph 1
This design is such a good basic that you could do in all kinds of pretty color schemes based on the season or the recipient. I love that Stephanie broke up all of the symmetry with the rolling pin wrapped in twine. It is a nice visual surprise!

The casual layers and the heart doily on this project are just wonderful. The way the twine appears to be holding everything in place is such a nice design detail. Adding the sentiment to a small tag was a clever way to incorporate it without it getting lost in the mix.
