Say goodbye to the Two Tags Die

I hated to see the Two Tags Die (item 115954) on the Retirement List (click HERE for the Retiring Accessories list). I’ve shed some tears over this one – It is absolutely one of my favorite dies and is a lot of fun to use too.

Here is a great card I got in a swap at Leadership using our Parker’s Pattern Designer Series Paper (item 131021) and the Two Tags Die. Isn’t it lovely?

Spring Sampler Bookmarks

I love to make things to give and this week I want to try making some quick bookmarks for spring. The Spring Sampler stamp set (item 125510/125512) from the Spring Catalog is one of my favorites and since it has such a great variety of images I started there. And of course my Big Shot dies make things quick when I want to do a large number of items so I pulled out my trusty Two Tags Die – love it right!?!

Here is what I came up with – I think my Spring Sampler Bookmarks will be a hit when I hand them out.

IMG_3620Once I got started I was having so much fun with the images from the Spring Sampler set I didn’t want to stop – lol IMG_3615

I used a variety of sentiments for the Spring Sampler Bookmarks too as you can see in my group photo.

The Two Tags Die, oh how I love thist Die. It makes projects so easy to do and you can use it sooo many different ways. It’s not just for tags. How about these cute little Halloween treats that were made by Karen Paramore recently for the Regional swap in Chattanooga – Aren’t they cute?

How quick and easy to make. Cut out the larger of the Two Tag Die images decorate, and add a piece of candy – voila! A Googly good treat to tempt any little Ghouls this Halloween.

Two Tag Die

I love meeting new stamping friends and the other day during my Free Card Friday event one of my guests asked me about an easy way to create a tag for a gift she wanted to give someone soon. Here is what I came up with quickly.

First thing that came to mind was the Big Shot and the Two Tags Die. What is easier than using the Two Tags Die? Pick you card stock and just run it through – it’s that simple.

We chose to decorate the Two Tags Die using our stamp set Betty’s Blossoms, just introduced in our NEW 2012-2013 Catalog. (Don’t have a 2012-2013 Catalog yet? Contact me today and I’ll be happy to get one to you.)

Isn’t it cute – and of course we needed a little sentiment for the inside
