a tag or two!

I thought I would share a tag today that I taught in a class last Thursday night.  There were a total of 3 tags taught  and everyone seemed to have a great time making them.  I know I enjoyed visiting with the new students and look forward to having Denise and her daughter Heather come again whenever they I say that cause Heather lives down in Houston and only gets to Oklahoma infrequently.  Hope to see Denise next month though!

I make all my tags using manila folders to cut down on cost cause I make so many of the darned things.  I think they do as well as the 20 tags for $5 card that you buy pre-cut.
In celebration of St. Patricks Day
The St. Patrick's Day tag was made using a Tim Holtz picture frame folder, Tim Holtz sentiment, Distress inks, Graphic 45 Paper, Martha Stewart 4 leaf clover punch, paper roses, gold coin from the party shop, and a cross that used to be a button!  The ribbon fob is jewelry findings from Hobby Lobby and the ribbon is seam binding from Stampin' Up!
A key to the city!
The key to the city was made using the Tim Holtz mini stamp set  Paris to London that came out last year and the voyage sentiment stamp.  I first inked with distress ink, stamped the collage stamp in white and then the fleur de leis and postage stamp in black.  The Eiffel tower is stamped on manila card and cut out and pop dotted up.  I found a bunch of these keys and cards of crowns in the dollar bin at Michael's and bought several of them for future use.  The leaves are cut out with the Tim Holtz Tattered Foliage die and I love the paper roses.  
The three tags together.
I posted the middle tag a couple weeks ago...if you want to see a bigger picture go here.  All the products used on this tag are by Dyan Reavely of Dylusions and Ranger Ink except for the Tim Holtz sentiment stamp!

I love tags.  Little pieces of art and so much fun to make!


  1. Was sure I commented on these lovely tags you have made. I remember saying something about the Dylusions Girl - she looks fab in RED. My door handle thingy features her - with a wobbly head (on a spring).

    1. you did comment on the Dylusions girl a couple weeks ago. I just decided to swap out one tag for this one for the class. I think Dyan Reavelys girl's are awesome! A little bipolar in some instances but a lot of fun!

  2. These are beautiful! Makes me even more aggravated that I missed out!! Boo! Love the colors and all of the embellies. Glad you had fun and made new craftin' friends. I'm off to the airport this morning. :)

    1. Wish you had been there too! It was fun but like the girl scout song goes "make new friends but keep the old, one is silver and the others gold!" We really should try getting the hubbies on a travel schedule so we could swap out trips to the airport!

  3. How fantastic are your tags....
    The colours work perfectly. The green background is stunning.
    I love to play, starting with a maybe and seeing where it takes me.
