Tags Galore

I do try to keep my class ladies busy. When asked what they'd like to make for the last class of 2021, a calendar and tags were requested. I guess this is pretty much the same as last year.

We've made several different calendars over the years, I'll do a 'flashback' and share a few below....

Bearing in mind that our classes are still on Zoom, I needed to make somethingwhich was easy for the ladies to follow. I found one online made by a lady who had followed directions from a demo called Monika Davis which was created way back in 2016. At the moment mine doesn't have any stamped images - I wanted my ladies each to create their own and not follow my instruction apart from cutting and assembling. This would make each unique. I think that I will do somthing abstract on mine or use up strips of card before I post the images below. It's certainly a surprise!

So, here's my calendar. I decided to use a poem and take an image from four different months to add to the relevant side.

And a side view showing the stand

The ladies also had 16 tags to make or assemble. Six are from the Tag Buffet kit and are the standard Stampin' Up! images apart from the sentiment as each lady will add her own from her stash. They're shown below awaiting their sentiment.

Three tags were designed by my buddy, Yvonne Bevan, who also designed last month's cards with the same stamp set - Delivering Cheer.

We made the rest of the tags using the stamps in the Christmas Traditions Punch Box - a fab set that was in clearance reduced from £42 to £16.80! What a bargain - 6 stamps, one punch, one stamp block and 2 mini ink spots! One of these final 7 tags is a shaker tag using the cloched dome and is shown here....

Two tags were diecut with the cloche die to resemble bells, one from Black Glitter Paper and the other from card in the Silver Foil Specialty Pack.

One tag in evening evergreen, another is die cut using the Stitched Triangle Dies.

Our final two tags the first is stamped on white with a vellum overlay and the last is a tiny cute penguin made using the penguin punch. Perfect for those smaller gifts!

Phew! That's an awful lot of tags!!!

How many of you made your own tags this year? It's such a fun thing to do!
