Surprise!!! A Special Reveal!
We’re super-excited to present you with something NEW today at Creatively Yours!
Noella and I thought it only fitting that we have members of our fabulous outgoing Design Team, one of our Guest Designers and a former Guest Designer interpret the newest thing we’re sketching: TAGS!
You got it!
What can we use tags for?
Here are some fun ideas:
Use your tags on gift bags, or atop wrapped presents.
Hang pretty, sparkly tags on the Christmas Tree! Write a special Christmas story verse on each tag you create.
Use a tag as a small bookmark.
Make a CARD out of a TAG Sketch (as you’ll see in Deanne’s interpretation below.)
Make the tags from waterproof materials and hang them on a backpack or suitcase as identification!
Place the tag on your scrapbook page to embellish it.
Write your journaling on a tag and place on a LO.
Embellish a card with a tag!
When adding photos to a small tag, try using “index prints” provided by many photo developers. They are the PERFECT size!
Use a tag to “pretty up” a bouquet of flowers with the recipient’s name and a nice handwritten message.
Place a magnet on the back of your tag and embellish it, then add a favourite quote or photo, and voila! An instant fridge decoration you can LOVE.
Pin a cool tag to a Bulletin Board!
Make your tags into funky name-tags for a themed get-together or crafty meeting.
Use handmade tags of various sizes to label the drawers and baskets in your craft area.
Whatever you do with your completed tag, always come back to CY for sketches and tag design ideas and to share the tags you’ve created and what you’re using them for! We’d LOVE to see your tags and ideas!….
And here are some gorgeous tag sketch interpretations from members of the Creatively Yours Design Team!
CY Designer Liz Weber did us proud yet again with this rich, colourful interpretation of Sketch #11

Here we go with Tag #2
“Lucky Sketch #13!”
Ching Phillips, on Special Assignment, has once again created some beauty with her Tag for Sketch #13!
Ann Seleshanko never disappoints! Her work is always such a treat for the eyes! Just look at her tag:
One of our April 2009 CY Guest Designers, Deanne Burton, made us proud by creating two interpretations of Sketch #13!

Then, Deanne created & shared a Christmas greeting!
A “card-tag” spreading much Joy:
