OSAT January Blog Hop – No Rules New Year!

Home / Blog / OSAT January Blog Hop – No Rules New Year!

I can’t believe that it’s already Thursday! I guess being sick makes the week fly by too! The Stamp, Ink, Paper Store was fun, Renee had a class in the morning and I worked on finishing up my projects for today’s post. I left early again so that I could come home and take a nap, another two hour one! I had dinner with my Parent’s, Dad is sick now too and Mum hasn’t gotten any better. After dinner Heather called me and I went over and met her at George’s. She was unpacking boxes and we listened to some music. I dug out a few oldies that neither of us had heard in a long time! Today I need to focus on catching up at things at the Store, I have been out of commission for too long! 😀

For my projects today I’m participating in a blog hop with a bunch of my friends from one of the Facebook groups that I belong to. It’s called One Stamp at a Time Cards and More. If you have arrived here from the talented Marisa Gunn, welcome! This month we have a No Rules New Year theme! We could make whatever we want! One of my favorite things to make is tags so I have four to share with you today!

I used the Lawn Fawn Stitched Circle Tags Lawn Cuts to cut out all of my tags, three from Moonstone Blue and one from Hunter Green. The Dolphin and Turtle are from the Lawn Fawn Critters in the Sea Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Dragon and Griffon are from the Lawn Fawn Critters Ever After Photopolymer Stamp Set. I stamped them all in Lawn Fawn Jet Black Ink and colored them in with Copics. They are all cut out with the Coordinating Lawn Cuts. For the turtle tag I cut out another piece of Hunter Green and a piece of Tropical Sea with the Lawn Fawn Ocean Wave Borders Lawn Cuts. The dolphin has a piece of Twilight cut with the Ocean Wave Borders. On the dragon tag I used the Lawn Fawn Puffy Clouds Borders Lawn Cuts to cut out some Solar White 80lb. Finally on the griffon I used the Lawn Fawn Forest Border Lawn Cuts to cut out a piece of Herb Garden and the Lawn Fawn Grassy Border Lawn Cuts to cut out a piece of Crisp Green. All of the additional pieces are adhered to the tags with E-Z Runner and the animals are adhered with 3D Foam Squares. My happy birthday is from the Lawn Fawn Year One Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in Black Licorice on all of the tags. I added some Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins to all of the tags except the griffon and tied a piece of Lawn Fawn Black Tie Single Cord Lawn Trimmings through the top of all of the tags. Magnet Tape is added to the back of all of the tags so they can be attached to presents and then taken off to be put on the fridge! I would want to keep the tag if someone gave it to me!

  1. You can’t get any cuter then these tags Justin. What a fabulous job you did and I just know these had to be a ton of fun to make. Way too sweet.

    Hope your Mum and Dad feel better soon. The hubs was sick for about a week but I took two weeks to even feel human again. Spring for some take out so your Mum won’t have to even think about putting dinner on the table. I’m sure she doesn’t care if she even eats at this point. You feel better soon also.

    1. Thank you very much Grace! They were a lot of fun to make and I really enjoyed coloring them in!
      I hope that they get better soon too! Mum has definitely lost her appetite. It has been a soup kind of week! I’m feeling a lot better, thanks! 🙂

  2. These tags are very cute, Justin. Your coloring and designs are great. I hope you and your family get better soon. It’s not any fun to be sick. Take naps, drink lots of liquids and rest. Sending get well quick wishes! lol

    1. Thank you HJ! Makes a nice change from a card! I’m feeling a little better, Mum, not so much. I have been enjoying my naps! LOL! 🙂

  3. Cute! i love tags and these are adorable.

    I’m so excited its Thursday, only because tomorrow its Friday. We had icy rainfall all morning, accidents everywhere and a 90 minute comute to work, usually its only 35minutes. i’m so ready to be done with this weather, and I think we have many weeks left. I need to move someplace warm. LOL

    1. Thank you Linda!
      I’m with you on the moving someplace warm! My friend in Florida keeps posting pics and it makes me want to go so bad! 🙂

  4. Hi Justin, I hope by now you are feeling better. I’m playing catch-up again. This weather doesn’t help you to get better. I adore these tags! They are very cute and special. I have only thought of tags for Christmas, and these are a great idea.
    🙂

    1. Hello Nancy!
