A site for my handmade cards, accompanied by my photos and written meanderings which are occasionally witty, often tongue-in-cheek, and rarely profound. Beginning in June 2013, you'll also see lots of NBUS, which is an acronym I coined for Never-Before-Used-Schtuff. Feel free to join in, use the acronym, and use up your NBUS too! Thanks for coming by! Have a beverage and enjoy!

Tag Time III and a Card, Too!

Hello, Stamplings!

Welcome to another Friday which whooshed in here like a ..., as fast as a ...! Oh, dear, I can think of a lot of words and expressions, but this is a family blog (mostly) so none of them are suitable! I'll let you fill in the blank with your own expression in your comment, which will tell me how stressed out you are!

Today I'm up with my reminder tag as Guest Designer at Tag You're It!

Over on the challenge blog, the very talented Hazel is the featured artist with an adorable baby tag.
I mentioned last week that you did not need to make a baby gift tag, unless you needed one. I know a lot of you are making Christmas tags, but I only see one in the TYI gallery yet, so maybe you didn't believe me cuz I'm such a kidder. But it's true, honest!

So to inspire you, for my reminder tag I changed the theme to a Christmas tag, but kept to the main elements of Hazel's adorable design: I was inspired by Hazel's embossed background, pink color, main focal image, and die-cut sediment.

I used a snowfall e/f for the background, the adorable penguins are from Stamps of Life, and the joy die is from Lawn Fawn.


Are you thinking, "Good to know, but I only make cards."

Aha! Did you know that you can also enter cards at Tag You're It? I didn't know that for a long time, but you absolutely can! So I turned my tag into a usable card to inspire you:
Your card has to have a tag layer, of course, and we still need to see how the Featured Artist inspired you, but other than that, you are free to design in the way that makes you happy!

I'd love to see your tag/card linked! You have five more days before the linky closes!
