Moving Along With the Times Challenge. . . . . . .

Good morning everyone. Hope that all fettles are fine and all ticketys are very boo!!!

Today is another challenge from MAWTT and, as chosen by Janice (well, one of the Janice's lol!!!) this time is tag, you're it!  Basically, you must use a tag on your project. 

Hope you can pootle over to MAWTT to see what the rest of the gals have created and of course, to join in with your own creations.

Now, my DT offering was being pesky to photograph upright so that you could see the edge of the back page of the card so I've photographed it flat so you can see the back edge in its glory.
I know it may be bright for some folk but I love the zingy citrusy colours in this pad.

And here is the tag emerging from its nesting place, behind the front panel.

I mounted the front decorative panel on thin strips of foam tape on each side and on the bottom and the tag slots in the channel in between.

White card
Lime card and yellow card (Lidl)
First Edition Hideaway 6x6 paper
Sue Wilson Ursa Gemini die
SB Decorative Labels 4(just the top section cut on the top of the tag and nipped away)
SB Labels 28
SB Decorative Labels 28
Docrafts sentiment stamp (on tag)
Alys Inky Fingers "Happy Birthday"
Hobbycraft decorative stamps
Mustard Seed DI
Bamboo Leaves Memento Dew Drop

I have friends that still read conventionally (ie real books rather than e-readers) and I have made cards previously incorporating a bookmark and I thought this would work well as a bookmark too.
And, you eyes are not deceiving you, I did cut the SB Labels 28 twice in the lime then cut them to make the length that I wanted and stuck them together (the next size up was ok for length but was too wide). The join is hidden behind the die cuts on top.

Well, by the time you are reading this, I should be getting off the train at the NEC ready to do battle with the marauding hoards. 
I should hopefully be meeting up with Christine, Sue P and Graham for a bit of a crafty catch up. (Sue J and Paul, you will be missed)

Hope you have a wonderful day, whatever you have planned.

I think the colours you have used are just right as it is nearly Easter and they make you feel better for their cheerfulness. looking forward to seeing what you buy this time - or will it just be coffee and cake while you sit and natter??!! Love from Jackie xx

  2. Holy wowsers Ang! This is incredible! You are the die cutting queen! At first I was thinking "I'm not seeing a tag here". then BLAM, bookmark tag comes flying out the top! Amazing! What a brilliant design and such a seamless mixing of dies! Well done! hugs :)

  3. Morning Ang WOW what a stunning card I adore the colours and your die cuts are wonderful. I like how you have added a tag that pulls out. and the overall design is wonderful.
