We are also celebrating this week the fact that Wendy and Julie have been on the team with us a whole year! How they have put up with us is beyond me, maybe they are as mad as the rest of us?

So let’s see what the design team have made for us starting with the GDT's....

Lou: I have made a tag card from a DL card by just removing the corners. I think one of my favourite Polka Doodles paper collections comes from Dollie Goes East collection; so varied and versatile. I have used lots of the elements and sentiments to create my card. I did also sneak in a little tag too.
Jenny - Hi it's good to be joining you this week and I love tags but rarely use them so this challenge was perfect for me. I have used one of the lovely digi's from the Serenity collection and she is Serenity Resting you can find her here.
I have used some pencils and Graph'it pens and I think she really looks like she has been tangoed!

Anjie - I have made the tag out of some Kraft card and then the papers, embellies and sentiments are all from the fabulous Picknix 2 Gingerbread Twist collection. I have used the Tea Dye distress ink to darken the edges of everything and added some faux stitching onto the papers. The 2 Picknix collections are available as smaller downloads and some even as physical paper stacks, which are so strokeable! You can find them all HERE. More details on my blog.
Scatty Jan For my tag this week I have used Oddella Twig , how adorable is she!!  I have coloured her up with Graph'It Markers, trying a nice bright red hair, For my base paper for my tag I used Distressed Wood paper pack download, loving this paper it really is so versatile. I added some Dewdrops, ribbon, buttons, gems and a charm to finish


Tanya - I love making tags because they can be elaborately or simply decorated and it gives you a chance to use lots of the little embellishments you may have lying around in your craft room. I’ve decided to use the  Dollie Goes East collection and have used three of the coloured digis which I’ve resized in a graphics package and printed out and then used some of the lovely papers available on the collection with the flowers which I’ve resized as well to go onto some Kraft Card tags and finished them off with glitter, gems and ribbon and lace.  I’ve made these three tags so that they can be used as cards so I printed off three different envelopes (also on the collection) and they will be just great for the tags and are just the right size too.



Jane – Hi everyone!  Well I made a tag easel card for my project this week involving a total of 4 tags!! All the elements are part of the beautiful SERENITY COLLECTION which is a must-have for all you fairy lovers out there!! The gorgeous image, SERENITY PRINCESS, comes as part of this collection but can also be purchased separately!  Have a lovely crafty day! xxx


Monica.-For this week challenge, I chose a beautiful shaped tag and cut it different sizes to make a tag mini album. For my mini album I used the beautiful papers, embellisments, flowers and sentiment from Octavia Moonfly Collection.


Caz Hi everyone, for my Tag i have used the lovely Oddella Bow. Gone a bit different and coloured grey tones, using my Graph it  markers..Paper is from Distressed Wood Paper download. I've added couple of skull flourishes cut on portrait.


Yvonne - I HAD to use Oddella again because it has been tooooo long since I played with her! So I opted for Oddella Heart. Soooo sweet! You can see her here.  I used a scalloped heart nesting cutting file that I cut out three hearts of.  I used a backing paper from the Picknix Gingerbread Twist Collection, which you can see here.  Not just for Christmas! 


Wendy - Well seeing as it's my 1st anniversary this week for being on this fabby team, I gone all out and used not 1 but 4 images. (Greedy, I know!) I've used Octavia Bird in Hand on the front and the 3 other images on the tags inside are all from Octavia Moonfly. The papers and sentiments are all from this collection, however they can also be found in mini kits on the Octavia Collections page.


Emma - For my 'Tag it' card I have made a card that is a tag shape, i have used Oddella Fairy who can be found Here & have coloured up using my pencils. All of the papers are from the Work & Play 9 - Love & Kisses collection that can be found Here, the sentiment & flower are from another of the fab collections called Octavia Moonfly which can be found Here.


Julie - I decided to make a card using my Sizzix large tag die and some Kraft card, I am really into Kraft  at the moment. The perfect digi download to go with Kraft card has to be the delightful Twiggy and Toots full download collection (also available on CD) which I have used for the coloured images, digi bows, sentiment ticket and gorgeous dotty paper. The owl images are also available singly in the Digi Download Store  Hats Off TwiggyTea for TwoooDancing Queen
I just added some gingham ribbon through 2 tag holes and brown dotty organza ribbon through the other 2 holes.

Lynda: For this weeks challenge I decided to use the gorgeous Work & Play 11 Collection, it's available on a CD or as a digital collection.  The Skateboarding digi stamp is available to buy here.  Have fun xx
