I do have the first tag done...

So I am on top of things it seems with getting at least the first tag done!

Some things I did differently,

1. The ribbon was a bright silver but I toned it down with some Faded Jeans Ink and the Blending Tool - I don't know why I keep having to be reminded that I can make or alter embellishments to work with the colours or project that I am doing. Loved adding wire to it.

2. Don't have a dymo that can do script writing but would love to know where I can get my hands on one. Make that two as I think Stephie would want one too. Left it open in case inpiration strikes later.

3. Didn't have any Picket Fence Distress Stickles (Neither in my personal stash or on the shelf to my dismay) and instead chose Star Dust Stickles to make the icicles along the top of the tag. Really liked doing it this way - also smeared a bit of the extra stickles along the bottom of the tag and on the snowman for some extra "ooh pretty bling' effect.

Otherwise had most of the product that Tim suggested to use. It didn't take too long to do the tag (time flies!) but it wasn't so much creating as it was following his steps which are painstakingly broken down and super easy to follow.

I hope to give it a try or put your own spin on it. I have a feeling we'll be seeing a 'Jenn Tag' Class in the New year!


PS I also have Tag #2 almost completed and I don't think I'll have any problems with getting Tags #3 done tomorrow morning, but it seems I am falling behind a bit. Oh well, I will make it up sometime!
