A TAGGY ENDING.....

We are nearly at the end of the month, and therefore nearly at the end of the 'Tag You're It' June Challenge.  If you still have to link your entry up there are only 2 days to go, and the scrummy taggy links so far displayed can all be found HERE.  Shortly Helen (loving her Zany Bird - Here) will have the very difficult job of choosing her 'five' - soooo very difficult!!!

Meanwhile we have had a bit of a special offer going on on the website - but only if you are signed up to receive the CI Newsletters - if you haven't signed up yet - maybe you should - you will find the appropriate spot for this near the bottom of the Home Page - Here, and if you would still like the current offer details please email us at info@craftyindividuals.co.uk for a copy of the latest Newsletter.  Many of you have taken us up on the offer over the last few days I am delighted to say.  I hope you are enjoying your bargain purchases right now!

It seems that we have increased our blog followers recently to nearly 900.  When we hit the 900 mark we will put up a cool collection of blog candy here for you to maybe acquire - so if you could follow and haven't yet then please do so, or point your crafty friends in the right direction if you can, so that I can print details of the candy on here soon.

Lets get on with the taggy tags now and the last of the team inspiration I have to show you...

Mainly tonight I have tags and a step by step from lovely Gio..



The first pretty tag features the lady from CI-394, and other bits from CI-393, and the second, pretty in pink, the dress form from CI-383 and the inchie ladies from CI-174.

Now I have a really useful and clever set of luggage tags from Gio, with a 'step by step' so that you can make yourself some, and really travel in style!!



Cut a large strip of canvas, plus another thinner strip....


Cut out an opening to hold the personal data...


Using the CI Floral Grid Mask sponge some acrylic paint over...


When dry cover the tag with a lighter colour wash of acrylic paint...


Stamp randomly with CI-017 (script) and CI-122 or 124 (postmarks). Gio has also used one of our small giveaway stamps to decorate...



Cut a piece of canvas the same size as the opening flap for the main image, and stamp with CI-344, then colour with Distress inks or Copic pens...




Sew or glue along three sides...


Glue on the stamped panel, add the strap, and insert your personal data...


Hey presto - your tags are ready to use!


Finally tonight I have a couple of taggy tags from Coco, and Daniele to show you...



Both using CI stamps and stuff!

Thanks for tuning in, back soon folks,
