Mini-challenge #1 over at the Counterfeit Kit Challenge is about using tags on your layout.

You know that you have them - tags of all sizes, shapes and formats, sitting around doing nothing. They can be chipboard, paper, kraft. Scrapbook product. Plain old shipping tags. Bought as is, decorated up by you, cut out by hand or with a die-cut machine. Large, medium or teeny tiny. When I look around my room, I know that they are in all corners of my stash.

This should be a fun challenge for you all because I know you are all just like me! :-)

I really wanted to use one of my decorated tags from September's kit but my room is in such a state, I couldn't find them! What a terrible admission to make - this must mean I have SO much stash.

Which meant that I had to rethink my strategy. Quick!

And then I completely forgot that I had planned not to use tags as a banner. I think I make way too many banners right now, after all. And what did I do, but make a layout with a tag banner! I have to smile at myself sometimes. Must be a sign that I'm getting old...

I used my November Glory kit and it was fun to mix up the colours and break out some very old product. See that vellum? 5 years old! See that blue rub-on that didn't work so well? 4.5 years old. See those alphas? 1.5 years old.

Well, this might not be the best layout I ever created. But it was fun to mix up the products and use a long overdue photo in the process. And that can only be a good thing :-)

So, what are you going to do with your tags? This is a challenge I could come back to time and time again and seeing what the other DT's made, I have loads of other ideas. Go check them out.

Don't forget that this month, Scraptastic Club is not only our inspiration kit but also our sponsor. So check out their site at  http://www.scraptasticclub.com/ and they will be giving away a $20 gift certificate to one lucky winner.

  1. Fabulous LO, I love how you've used tags as a banner, I don't think you can have too many.xxxx

  2. ditto deb :) love the LO and the banner :)

  3. Now that I have a Slice card that cuts tags I am tag-mad! Your banner has worked out beautifully.

  4. Lovely tags and your layout is beautiful!!! Love the colors and your photo is soooo nice. I love tags and don't use them often. Don't worry that you use them a bunch, I'm guessing no one else notices because they look so good.
