My Convention Bag Tags !!

Hey Stampers,

Happy Saturday to you !! I am getting everything ready to pack, because on MONDAY I leave for Convention !! I am one of the lucky demos who have my swaps all finished, so I had some fun last night making some tags for mine and Cathy's convention bags !! Every demo (almost 6000 of us !!) will get some sort of fun purse for Convention - thats a LOT of the same bag !! So people will lots of times make some cute ID tags for them, so you can tell them apart from everyone else's !! I made two last night, one each for me and my roomie Cathy. And of course, where we are BOTH C initials, they couldn't really be the same. So I made hers with her fav color Bermuda Bay and mine with Strawberry Slush ! I am really tickled with how cute they turned out - take a look !!


Love them !!! I used the second largest flower shape from the Floral Frames Framelits for the base piece. Then the circle framelits cut out the 2 circles - one in Whisper White and the second in our "secondary" colors - Pink Pirouette and Coastal Cabana. I stamped these inner circles with the awesome Dictionary background stamp, in Strawberry Slush and Bermuda Bay. Love that 2 tone stamping !! I cut the cute C's using some Basic Black cardstock and the Typeset Alphabet Bigz Dies. I popped the initial up on some Dimensionals, love how that pop of black looks !! My little banner is stamped using the Remember This and That Rotary Stamp in Jet Black Stazon, and I adhered it to my tag using a Silver Glimmer Brad. This being the 25th Anniversary of SU, I had to use some pops of Silver ! I used the Silver Glimmer Paper to punch out an Elegant Butterfly, and then layered a stamped butterfly from Papillon Potpourri on top. I stamped it with more StazOn onto a bit of Vellum so it would show through !! Love that look !! A dot of Basic Black from the Itty Bitty Punch Pack Circle gives some extra stability to my 1/8" Basic Black Taffeta Ribbon, and I have some little silver clasps to add to this so they can clip onto our bags too ! Love it !! Here are some close ups of the tags:


Love this gorgeous color combo of Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral, Whisper White, Basic Black and Silver !! Really makes a statement !!


Here is a sort of side view, so you can see all the dimension that the Elegant Butterfly punches add. Isn't that Silver Glimmer one gorgeous !?!

Thats is for me today !! I hope you likes my fun tags. I can't wait to get a fun purse and clip it on !!
