I started my day out watching a Tim Holtz video as he completed a tag from start to finish. Wow, is he inspiring or what?! Okay, let me back up a bit. - Simon Says is running a Stamptember Inspiration all month long. It started with creating a Pin Board, and then through out the month you add onto your board, what inspired you during the month. I found the SS Blog - subscribed, and I am looking forward to playing are/or being inspired. I am also planning on throwing in items for a wish list -- DH will love the convenience of clicking though, buying and he is done with me for Christmas.
So I am joining in at Simon Says Any Goes Challenge. OMGosh - there are over 600 entries! But you know the ole saying, you can't win if you don't play. It's worth it to me, plus I got an awesome tag out of the challenge. Hero Arts Blog is running a challenge of using embossing. Perfect! I love texture on my tags and I just happen to have a Tim Holtz embossing folder that worked perfect. :) Ready for some photos?
The Completed Tag
A Close Up of the fun embossing for the Hero Arts Blog Challenge.
Do any of you make tags? What do you use them for? My choice? A bookmark, and actually, the last time I traveled I put one on my suitcase with a return label of information on the back of the tag. That really did work out well since my suitcase is black.... I recognized the tag as soon as it popped out of the shoot at lugguage.
I am looking forward to this month and being inspired. The perfect goal~
Thanks for stopping by~
Supplies to make this tag:
