Tag Class

I am teaching two classes this week at Scrap That in Norman and wanted to get the word out cause I was told yesterday I am just not posting enough  again!  OMG!  I promise to do better!

On the third Wednesday of each month we are going to start having a class called What's Up Wednesday to teach everyone how to use some of those awesome goodies they are buying at the store.  Yes...that was a brayer not a crimper you bought the other know who you are! Anyway the class is at 6 pm so feel free to drop by if you would like to learn something about embossing/debossing this month.  We are going to make a card tag that I also will be teaching in the Tags class on Thursday night.

This months tags class is all about travel and I used several of the Tim Holtz stamp sets to create 3 tags of various sizes. 
The first tag is a gigantic #12 tag made with stamps from TH CMS 128 Road trip.  I love this set with the big broad tire tracks and that old car.  I can remember traveling Route 66 to get home from California when I was a kid so it has some significance to me.  I made the hang down tag from a piece of the Destinations Oklahoma tag!
up close!  see the Oklahoma tag!

The second one is a #8 tag using the TH CMS 127 On the Railroad.  This a a huge locomotive  image and it is so detailed and fun to play with!  I love the tracks, the railroad crossing fun.

 TH CMS 124 Warehouse District the mini version of the Air Travel stamps was used on the third and final tag.  I love that these stamps come in a smaller size perfect for tags.  Once again I used a #12 tag and folded it to make a card and embossed it with a texture fade.  I am going to use this tag/card for the What's Up Wednesday class to show dry embossing using folders vs wet embossing using a heat set embossing powder.

Okay hope this works as a post for today!  Come play with us this week....Sharron says it is a group therapy session with lots of crafting, talking, and laughing.   Call 310-3100 to save your seat!


  1. Oh I wish we lived closer, I would love to come and play in your class, although I do know the difference between a brayer and a crimper, threw my crimper away!!!!

    1. I did that too but ended up going and buying another crimper to help with my flower making and making the corregated cardboard looking papers for various things. I used to steal{:-)} Starbucks cup wrappers to use with my punches till I replaced the crimper!

  2. Your travel tags are so cool! I would love to join in but its a bit far for me to come from Bournemouth in the UK! xx

  3. Love the tags and yes the therapy you provide is the best around! We always have so much fun! See you tomorrow!

  4. I thought from the linky thumbnail that "aww, she made baby tags" but holeymoley that #12 is huge!

  5. I love your tags, I am curious how you made the red car with the white walls? Do you ever share you techniques online?

  6. Love your take on Tim's tags. That splash of red really makes them pop. MMx
