It has been quite a while since I blew the dust off this blog.
Recently I have been watching videos about making your own embellishments for cards, scrapbook layouts, artist trading cards, and just to have a stash of things you like and will use. And, as usual, I got sidetracked in my room as I began hunting through my sticker stash to create embellishments.
I’ve made three tags, over the last few days, using my stickers from 2005 and an old 2013 Atlas.
The “Process” video at the end of this post will show you how I made the center tag. The same steps have been used for all three of them. Each with a little bit of something different but the theme remains the same.
The tag I made today is about a stop necessary on any road trip. Getting gas and all the other important things that get done at a gas station.
This is one of those creations that starts out with promise and quickly ends up going in the dumper. I did NOT like what I had created.
I went to my computer and typed out the words I had originally hand written. I have a Xyron Sticker Maker. I cut the printer paper down to a size sufficient to be fed through the Xyron then cut the pieces out.
I spent a little time for placement of my new stickers. Before I attached them I cut them down to better word strips. After attaching them to the tag, with an additional bit of glue, I drew around them with a black micro pen.
I even saved the old truck I stamped from the Stampers Anonymous “The Journey” stamp set. The truck went on the back of the tag as part of the map feature.
Here is the “Process” video if you want to see how to create your own tags featuring the stickers you have in your stash. Enjoy your creative time.
