Tag! You're It! Blog Hop




Happy New Year!
and WELCOME to the 
Clear Dollar Stamps
TAG, You're It!
Blog Hop!!

We have the *neatest * new die set and coordinating stamp sets to show you today!  And we'll be choosing a winner from all the comments received on the designers' blogs to receive both the set of dies and both sets.  Be *sure* you leave comments!!  (Nice ones, preferably! LOL!)

I wanted to do something special for the hop, so I went to my stamping drawer and pulled out a planner that I bought a few years ago and hoped to alter "someday".  I had some of my Capella paper kit from Clear Dollar left over so that became my colorway, and this is what I ended up with...


I used the new dies to make the center tag, as well as the Tabs and Tags Additions stamp set.  I also used the dies to make the tabs on the side.  The numbers were some rub ons that I won in a blog candy a year or so ago. :-)

For each section of my book, I stamped a background from the Additions set in coordinating ink and then cut a tag to layer on it.  The words are made with stickers.


The Monthly Calendar Section
Month Names added with Stickers

The Notes Tab

The Daily Schedule Tab
I cut a piece of patterned paper with one of the dies and attached it to the back cover of the planner .  I caught a piece of ribbon under it with ScorTape to make a bookmark.

Another card using the dies...

Well, that's it for me!  I hope you are enjoying the hop so far.  Your next stop is Katlyn's blog, and she has an *adorable* card to show you!  And here's the whole list in case you get lost or are just starting.

Happy Hopping!

What a beautiful planner Tricia! Great use of the tabs. And a gorgeous card also!

Happy New Year's blog hop, Tricia. You make us so happy with techniques popping tags in layers where color and dimension play tricks on the mind's eye wondering if the sentiment is in or out of layers! Second glances can be priceless.
Keep Looking UP!
