Scrap Tag.......You're It!!

Hi there.

I've been working on a huge project for the past few weeks (A custom 20 page scrapbook) and I'm accumulating lots of scraps. To save my sanity I decided to make a few tags using all my leftovers. I'm going to try to link up as many of the supplies as I can but I'm sure that I won't remember everything.

My first tag is mostly stamped. The tag base is PTI Tag Sale # 6 and it's stamped with Background Basics: Chevron stamp set in Yellow Yo-Yo ink. The tag topper (is that even what you call it?) is stamped with Polka Dot Basics II stamp set in Melon Berry ink.

Our next layer is a layered embellishment of a  Limitless Layers Die cut from Hawaiian Shores card stock. Then a die cut piece of wood grain patterned paper. Next is a small strip of Hambly Transparency with a Cream wood-grain pattern, Then two strips of white card stock stamped with Damask Designs stamp set in Raspberry Fizz card stock that I trimmed each end in a banner then a stamped (It's a My Mind's Eye Stamp, I think) piece of white card stock that I colored with Copics.

My second tag is mostly patterned paper scraps. The tag holder is a die cut from the Silhouette store that I die cut using a green and white chevron paper scrap.

Next I added a layered embellishment. I started with the same limitless layer die from PTI and die cut that from a kraft and white grid PP, next a punched a circle from a floral and text piece of pp. I then die cut a label from PTI Angled Labels die and stamped it with the coordinating Label Basics stamp set using PTI's Fine Linen ink.

After that I added a die cut a butterfly using PTI Beautiful Butterflies Die that I die cut from the paper that I used to die the tag topper from the first tag. Then I punched a piece of Summer Sunrise card stock using a Martha Stewart large butterfly punch.

The tag insert is hand cut from a piece of patterned paper layered on a piece of melon berry cardstock. The tab at the top is the mini oval tab die from My Favorite Things and it's die cut from the same piece of kraft and white grid patterned paper attached with a few staples using my tiny attacher. The sentiment stamp is from PTI.

These tags were so much fun to make and I felt great that my scraps weren't being stuffed into an overfilled drawer never to be seen again or even worse thrown out. I have a few of these tags framed up in my scrapbook room. They make great decorations. (I got that idea from Keisha Campbell).

See you all Sunday for another Simple Sunday card and we have another Artsy Addicts Featured Artist being showcased on Saturday.

And don't forget this Saturday is National Scrapbooking Day. What are you doing to celebrate?

Lastly, you've been scrap tagged? What's a scrap tag? Something I made up...Ha! I tag you all to make some tags from your scrap pile. You can add stamping if you like but all the papers, card stock, and embellishments must come from your scrap pile. Make sure you link me up in the comments or on FB. I'll pick a winner on monday.

Have a great weekend.

  3. Love that 2nd tag! What a great idea for scraps. I hope the custom project went well for ya

  4. I love using up my scraps the minute that the project is finished.  I usually make tags, cards, or journal pages with them.  I have a few projects winding down, I'll make some cute little tags and share them with you.  Your tags are awesome, and would make a great addition to a journal or future scrapbook layout.
