Books/book pages

Hi Everybody!

Today we are starting a new challenge  at Tag Tuesday, and this time our lovely and very talented  Pinky is hosting. She has chosen BOOKS/ BOOK PAGES as her theme. Here she is to tell you all about it!

'Hi it's Pinky here and I would love you to join in my challenge theme

books/book pages this fortnight.

Here are my tags!


For this one I used very old dictionary pages for my background,
stamping and colouring the flowers. I punched some little butterflies
and layered them up using the same page and some white card.


For my second tag I made some rolled flowers and
a larger layered butterfly using the same dictionary pages.'

Thanks, Pinky, for these wonderful tags. The 2nd one really took my breath away, so beautiful! As always, our challenges run for 2 weeks, and I am looking forward to seeing YOUR tag!
Have fun!
Have a great week, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!

Valerie

Roses

 Hi Everybody!

Today we are starting a new challenge here, and this time our lovely and talented Wendy is hosting. I would like to thank Sandie for hosting last time, and for the admin work she gets sorted so capably. Wendy has chosen the theme of roses, and here she is to tell you all about it:

I love roses and have some lovely ones in my garden, so I decided to have roses as  my theme for the next two weeks. There are many different types from single wild roses to our cultivated ones of nearly every colour imaginable. For my tags I have used collage on two of them, one with a trellis and 3D roses on and anther with stamped images of a stylised rose The third one has a picture of some roses I painted with one from a magazine and stamped ones at the bottom. You can use any media you like as long as there is a rose on it. I look forward to seeing your tags.




Thanks for these wonderful and inspirational tags, Wendy!
As always, you have 2 full weeks to enter our challenge and tags of all formats are welcome. We are looking forward to seeing your entries!
Stay creative and have fun!

Black & White,with a tiny spot of another Colour

 Good Morning Everyone, 

it's Sandie here and I am bringing the theme for this fortnights challenge.

I would like to see Black & White, with a "tiny" spot of another colour.

I realised after making my tags, just how difficult to get a true colour when you photograph white on white, so I used ivory card for the background behind the tag, but it didn't make a lot of difference...lol. 

I hope my tags will inspire you to join us and I shall look forward to visiting you all and leaving some love on your blogs.

Remember, your entry must be a Tag, any size and any format and must follow the theme.

Have Fun...x





Thanks for these gorgeous tags Sandie, and I hope lots of peope join in the play!
Have a great week, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!

Spots and/or Stripes

Hi Everybody!

Today we are starting a new challenge here, and this time Valerie is hosting - that's me! Many thanks to Michele for the wonderful sunny tags she made for our last challenge, and to all who joined in. Our challenges always run for 2 weeks, and tags of all formats are welcome. You can use just spots, or just stripes, or a mix of both. Other elements are okay, but the focus should be on the stripes and spots. My tags were made using leftovers. The background here was a jelly print made long ago, glued onto recycled cardboard. The other embellishments were found on my very full table:


Here I once again used various scraps glued onto a reused tag. Here I managed to add some stitching before my machine gave up. It needs a holiday at the repair shop! Here I used strips of washi tape to make the stripes, and a stencil for the spots:


Hope to see lots of you joining in! 
Take care, and have fun!

                 and for the "optional twist...!"



images and papers are mostly from gecko galz with a few others from retired mischief circus kits, and words/sentiments from tim holtz; the yellow submarine image i pulled from the world wide web...

Christmas in July!!

Hi Everybody!

We've got a fun challenge to cool us down during these hot days. Here's Pinky to tell you all about it!

 Hi everyone, Pinky here with one of your favourite challenge themes 😂

Christmas in July!!

For my first tag I have  dug into my old  card kits

and chopped them up to form a tag.

I stamped the wording on the back, stamped and coloured

the poinsettia and leaves and just put it all together.


In the same kit I found these super cute tag blanks so
I got out my stamp sets and just had a play.
Very quick and easy and I will definitely do more of these.



Thanks for these gorgeous and inspirational tags Pinky, I hope all those suffering from the heat will be able to think some cool thoughts! And thanks to Sandie who made such wonderful tags for the last challenge, and of course, to all who entered! Looking forward to seeing your tags in the next 2 weeks!

Have a great week, have fun!

Valerie

Holidays/Travel

Hi Everybody!

Thanks to all who joined in my last challenge, must appreciated. Now our lovely and very talented Sandie is hosting, so here she is to tell you all about it! And thanks for managing the themes and dates Sandie, that is such a BIG help for me!

 Hello Everyone, it's me, Sandie and I am bringing you the theme for our challenge for the next 2 weeks.

It is that time of year isn't it, well it is in the UK, that people will be getting ready for their summer holidays and touring holidays, so I thought I would use that as my theme.

Unfortunately I am not going on holiday this year, I have an operation coming up on my hand, although saying that I have several days out planned.

I hope you will get your mojo on and get creative with my theme. Tags can be made from any medium and any size, but it must be a tag.

I shall visit each of you and leave some love, have fun...xx





Thanks for these gorgeous and inspirational tags, Sandie. 
As always our challenges run for 2 weeks, so plenty of time to get inspired!

Have a great time, take care,
and stay happy and creative!

New challenge - use a diecut

Hi Everybody! 

Today we are starting a new challenge here  and this time it's my turn to host.  First of all I would like to thank Wendy for her beautiful tags for our last challenge.

My chosen theme is 'use a diecut', but apart from that any theme on your tag is good. As always, you have 2 weeks to link your tag to our page, and I hope to see YOU there! I made a Christmas tag - actually I made several -using my deer and Christmas tree dies.  The stars were bought, and I used scraps of a paper lace doily for the 'snow'. The silver background was part of a gift box:



Here I did the same only different:



Im looking forward to seeing your tags and visiting your blogs.
Have a great time, stay safe and well,

Valerie

Thanks to Michele for hosting the last challenge, this time out lovely Wendy is hosting. Here she is to tell you all about it:

 For my theme on tag Tuesday this fortnight I have chosen to go with pockets. You can use any medium you like and include a pocket on your tag. I have put a small book in one of mine which has stamped images of the seaside and a collection of small tags with birds on, in the other. Your pocket can contain anything you like. I look forward to seeing your tags.





Thanks for all this wonderful inspiration, Wendy! Now it's over to you - you have 2 weeks to link to us and show us yyour tags!

Add some stencilling

 

Hi Everybody!

Thanks to Sandie who hosted the last challenge and to all who linked their beautiful creations to us. Today we are starting a new challenge and this time our lovely and talented Pinky is hosting. Here she is to tell you all about it:

'Hi everyone.

My chosen theme this time is

add some stencilling.

I have just recently got into stencilling and have

really enjoyed it

So my first tag is this one and I have gone with a

black base and stencilled directly onto it using some

embossing paste.

I used the stencil again to make smaller flowers

and finished with an embossed sentiment and gems.


For my second tag I used a layering stencil
onto white card. Then stamped a sentiment
and finished with a bow.


I hope you get time to join my theme this fortnight.'

Thanks for these wonderful and inspirational tags Pinky. As always, our challenges run for 2 weeks and tags of all formats are welcome. Whateever you do, have fun and stay safe!

Animals, Tame or Wild, no Insects.

 Hello Everyone, it's Sandie here and I am bringing you the theme for our challenge for the next 2 weeks.

I have chosen Animals, Tame or Wild, but not Insects.

I, like a lot of people, love animals, having had many as family pets over the years. I have often preferred animals to people.




I hope plenty of you will join in, as always any medium is acceptable, but it must be a tag.

Have fun everyone...x

Thanks for these great,  inspirational tags, Sandie!
And have a great week!

Bingo/numbers

Hi Everybody!

First of all I would like to thanks Sandie for hosting our last challenge,  and for her help with the blog admin. Today our lovely Pinky is hosting, and here she is to tell you all about her challenge:

 "Hi there everyone, it's Pinky here and my chosen theme is Bingo/numbers!

When Sandie mentioned my theme would start on 22/2/22 it just made me

think of BINGO! So I hope you come along and play with some numbers.

My original idea was to use a certain stamp set which I searched for for ages

and could not find so I had to made do with what I had.


For my first tag I went with the slang call outs
Bingo halls use. Not that I have ever been to a bingo hall,
sadly lol. But it always makes me smile what they come up with.


My second tag uses this fun bingo lady from Bugaboo.
She has been coloured up and I added the bingo players prayer
just for good measure!"

Thanks for these fab tags, Pinky, they are a great inspiration.
As always our challenges run for 2 weeks and tags of all formats are welcome. And just for fun I am scheduling the post to go live at 2:22 a.m.! Have fun, stay safe,
Valerie

Any medium and size is acceptable, but it must be a Tag.
Have fun
Hugs

Use fabric on it!

  Hi Everybody!

Today we are starting a new challenge and our lovely and talented Wendy is hosting. Her theme is 'use fabric on it'. This means you an use any theme, but your tag must have some fabric on it. Thanks to Michele who hosted our last challenge. Now over to Wendy to tell you all about her challenge:

' For my theme for the next two weeks, I would like you to Add some fabric to your tag' It can be any type or amount, as long as there is some on your tag it will be fine. Your background can be anything, card, fabric, cardboard, any substrate you like. All mine are on card, with the last one mounted on another tag covered fabric. You don't even have to sew it it on, glue is fine. Mine are all sewing based, but you can use any subject you like. I look forward to seeing your tags. Happy New Year to everyone.'





Thanks for these inspirational tags,Wendy. I look forward to seeing your tags. As always you have 2 weeks to join us.

Take care and have fun creating!
