Heaven Sent

Happy Sunday Taggers! We had a great week last week and a few more of you played along which we were delighted about as there were some amazing White tags to feast our eyes upon! Thank you so much to all of you who played along and we hope you enjoyed making your tags as much as we did!

Well this week we're looking above us and all around us as our theme is Heaven Sent. Once again we ask you to interpret that in any way that suits you, but don't forget to leave us a link so that we can come and see your gorgeous creations for ourselves. Here's a few tags that our wonderful creative team have come up with to whet your appetite further:

We hope that these have inspired you to go and grab a few scraps and create a beautiful tag of your own.

Don't forget also that next week we are starting our June Swap - this is a fantastic opportunity to receive a randomly selected tag from another player in the post - what a wonderful surprise. If you haven't done so already, please help yourself to our tag button to remind you to join in and hopefully bring others in because the more tags we have submitted, the greater the selection we have and the more random the swaps become. The team here are soooo excited about this and we hope you are too! Our lovely friend and teamie Janet is going to coordinate this and what we will be asking you to do is to send the tags you make during June to Janet (click the link to email her for her addy) along with a stamped addressed A5 envelope for your random selected tags to be returned. Obviously all the tags will be different sizes and weights so you might like to allow for that in your postage (and maybe even a padded envelope?). Please can we ask though that you ensure that ALL your tags will fit comfortably inside an A5 envelope - some of the team here are having to learn to make smaller tags just for this swap!! LOL!!!

In the meantime, we wish you a wonderful and creative week ahead. Whatever you do, enjoy it!

A Whiter Shade of Pale

Happy sunny Sunday taggers!! I hope you're having sunshine where you are too - it's positively tropical here, and there's nothing like a bit of summer to make you feel creative! So delve into that scrap box of yours and produce a tag for this week's theme which is A Whiter Shade of Pale (if you're not singing now, you're too young to play! LOL!). Basically this is a great opportunity to use up all those white card cut-off's you've been hanging onto. We don't do impossible here though, we do accept that you do need a little colour but your tag should have an overall 'White' appearance. If you're stuck for ideas (though I'm sure you're not!) our fab bunch of teamies have produced some wonderful samples to inspire you:




Now for the exciting news we have for you. Are you someone who loves to receive surprises in the post? Well, throughout June we have decided to host a tag swap. This will mean the 4 tags you make for the June themes, if you choose, can be swapped and you will receive 4 different ones back, chosen at random, from all the tags submitted. Its very important, if you want to take part in the tag swap, you should make your tags small enough to fit into an A5 envelope. As the themes go on we will give you more information but for now we wanted to share this little bit of excitement. We are buzzing at the thought of receiving 4 tags from you folks so we hope lots of you join in. Please share the tag swap on your blog too as the more join in the more tags there are to swap! It's really easy, it's great fun and you get a fab surprise at the end of it! Don't forget to keep popping back, the first theme for the Tag Swap will be on Sunday 6th June!

In the meantime, we wish you a great week ahead! Happy Tagging and don't forget to leave us your link!

Happy Sunday Taggers! This week is special because we're turning back the clock to an age when romance was alive and well and thriving and our theme is Vintage Romance! These are your tags so we welcome you to interpret this in any way you like just so long as you get to use up some of those lingering scraps and have fun in your creativity!

Here are some wonderful samples to inspire you from our fab team of taggers:

Aren't they just gorgeous? Now then, take note - if you're someone who loves to receive surprises in the post, keep tuning in because we have an exciting announcement to make next week to keep you tagging right through June! I'd love to tell you what it is but the girls have put a gagging order on me so I'm afraid you'll have to wait just a few more days!

Week No. 5 - A Butterfly's Kiss

Hi Taggers, Happy Sunday!!

Hands up, how many of you out there have a box or folder or something that you keep those pretty paper off-cuts that you just can't bear to throw away because you might find a use for them one day? Well today is that day!! Get your box of scraps out, maybe a couple of stamps, even a punch or two and turn those scraps into really useful tags! There's no point in hanging onto something that, lets face it, if you're honest, you're never going to use, are you? But if you've made something pretty and useful with them you're going to be so thankful - especially when you need a tag in a hurry! And they don't take long to make, unless you really want them to of course. A tag can be as simple or as elaborate as you like. Tags are a great way of experimenting too. You know that technique that you keep threatening to try out? Well this is the perfect occasion for that, and guess what, it isn't going to matter if it goes wrong because you can just trim it down, add a gem or two, punch a hole in the top and thread a ribbon and Voila!! Tag Art!!! Sometimes I (Anne) like to just stamp images and colour them - they never make it onto cards, but they do come in handy when I need a tag in a hurry!

That is the purpose of this blog - it was never designed to take you away from your other favourite challenge blogs and rob you of precious crafting time. Our reason for being here is to try and entice others into using up what might ordinarily be junk stash and making something beautiful and useful from it. The themes we set are just to give you an idea to get you going - we don't set 'challenges' because tag making is something that you can do while you're waiting for the kettle to boil, or a 'warm-up' to your crafting time.

This week we have set a theme which uses butterflies - I imagine pretty much everyone has butterflies in their stash so we want you to drag them out and use them on your tags. It's not a competition - there are no prizes or blog candy to give away, we just want to encourage other crafters to create something beautiful in their daily gaps with scraps of papers and have something beautiful at the end of it.

Here are some wonderful examples from our fab DT





So now we would love to see what you can do with a few paper off-cuts and a bit of ribbon. Don't forget to link back to us so we can come and ogle your tags too!
