Tag Time(s) 3 ~ Papertrey Ink November Blog Hop


Greetings dear blog friends and Papertrey fans!!  Today's project is my take on this month's PTI Blog Hop focusing on tags...oh, be still my beating heart...I've been a little obsessed with tags this year :)  Okay, let's get started, I've got several photos.  Many of you who know me know that I can never do "just one" of something fun, so here are my tags times 3... first, here are all the tags together. Nice enough, but here's what I did with them... 
First up is a little nod to my American friends celebrating Thanksgiving today and tomorrow and well really, until next Monday!! LOL  We are full blown into winter up here in Canada so it was fun to once again use my leaf dies.  I used canvas for the leaves and love the soft look it gives to the ink.  This tag is for my teacher librarian friend who is getting a little surprise soon {wink, wink}.
Next up is a fun tag using Dawn's ornament stamp set AND die!!! Oh, thank you PTI!!!  I didn't order this stamp set because of all the cutting but sure did once the dies came out.  Hey!! Love that colour combo?  It's the latest draw from my Wild Card Colour Challenge (the WaCCCky).  Some of you may remember that I made up my own colour challenge during the June PTI Blog Hop.  I was really happy with this combination...so perfect for Christmas...a little twist on the traditional colours.  (yes, unfortunately some candies were injured in the making of this blog post! hehehehe).
{edited to add: oops! I missed a colour! After looking at my post, I noticed simply chartreuse is not in the picture!  After thinking about it, I remembered that I was going to use chartreuse double stitched ribbon for the tie, but I got side tracked by the bakers twine...oops!! Sorry! lol}


 Last up is my favourite thing to do with tags...put them on a card!!  One of my tag cards from the first Blog Hop I participated in back in February was published in the September CARDS magazine!!  They are so versatile!!  The actual tag was made with Labels 11.  I punched the holes into the scallops for some added fun and die cut the limitless layer with raspberry fizz felt.
And here they all are together!!  Thanks so much for visiting...AND thanks for hanging in, but I had so much I wanted to share :)  Hugs and I look forward to seeing all the other projects over the next few days :)

Maureen, these tags are amazing!!! I think my favorite is the fall leaf one that is going to your teacher/librarian friend. The colors, the library tag, the jewels! And the third is so frilly and girly that I can't help but like it. :)

I know you don't have today off, but Happy Thanksgiving anyways! Oh, and the Taylor's Tiny Twinkles I used my on my card yesterday are just little tiny jewels from Taylored Expressions that I picked up at CHA last year. And speaking of CHA, it does look like they are not doing the Super Show this January! I'm SO bummed! I had a blast there last year and was looking forward to meeting a few more blog friends' faces! Maybe I'll just have to plan a little summer vacation to Chicago.... lol.
