Attempting a Tag


Hi this is Cheryl. Today for my post for Flamingo Scraps today I decided to attempt to make my very first tag. On Saturday I went to the Rubber Stamp Show here in Plano and the last booth that I visited was the one for Ranger. I could have camped out all afternoon, but I had my very tired Grand with me and she was ready to go. So I hung around as long as I dared and watched bits and pieces of a project or two and then we left. I love Ranger products and love Wendy Vecchi's line most of all. Her products are totally earthy and feminine, but the type of projects she makes are totally foreign to me. I am a card maker first and then a scrapbooker second.  Making tags, 3D projects, and Mixed Media is totally out of my comfort zone. But, I took notes, picked up a few things, and took a shot at it. I really don't know what anyone does afterwards with these tags. Maybe use them for a book marker? Do people collect these as someone would a ATC card? Oh well, here is my tag. There were many steps to make this, but it was really a lot of fun too! It has me wishing I had a small piece of canvas to play with now. I might get to like this! Enjoy!




Thank you for visiting my blog today. Please also visit and "like" the Flamingo Scraps Blog here. We have a lot of fun as we adventure with our inks, stamps, and papers.

Happy Stampin.........Cheryl

Nice tag! I don't know what people do with all their tags. Give them away? Hang them up along a "clothes line"?

You did good!!! I think your new cart will be perfect for taking all your stuff to a crop!!! It will hold all your paper, embellies, and tools...even your Cameo!! If you decide you don't want it....just send it to me!!! I love it!! XOXO

I love your tag. I have always wanted to take a class at the Stamp place in Plano. I have been to the store once since my daughter moved out to Texas.
Love the dots and the colors that you used.
