Encouragement Tag Ring | Lindsey LanningOct 15, 2020
Hello everyone, it’s Lindsey! Who else is ready for all the fall themed crafting?! This is my favorite time of year to create...I love all of the colors, textures, and beautiful leaves. The Taylor Collection is packed full of fall yumminess and I couldn’t wait to dig in!
As soon as I saw the new Loose Leaf Rings I knew I wanted to create some kind of tag ring this month. I pulled out my electronic and manual die cutting machines, the Taylor Kit, a sewing machine, and got to work. I’ve been struggling with some health issues lately so I wanted to fill this album with some encouraging Bible verses that I can look at every day but you could easily use this project with some inspiring quotes or even small photos.
The base of these three tags was created using the Library Pocket & Card cut file and a variety of Taylor patterned papers. These were embellished with some epoxy stickers, die cut shapes, gold stitching, gold embossing, and some florals cut using the Floral Cluster cut file.
The base of these tags was created with the Taylor journaling cards. I just cut off the corners, punched a hole and added some gold hardware. I again used some gold thread, die cut shapes, epoxy stickers, and some more cut files to decorate these tags.
The larger tag was again created using a journaling card for the base and then embellished using the Sarah dies. The base for the other tag was created with the Shay Tag Dies and embellished with some gold heat embossing and the Gabby Cardstock Fringe from last month’s kit.
For these tags, I cut several different Taylor papers using the Shay Tag Dies. I may be a little obsessed with that leaf cut file so I used some more of those for embellishment as well as some more die cuts and also added a couple of the label stickers to back some of the verses.
The base of these tags was again created using the Shay Tag Dies. The first tag was embellished with some of the Taylor Washi and then I gold heat embossed some detail using the Taylor Stamp. The second and fourth tags used more Felicity Jane cut files that I scaled down to fit on the front of the tags. The third tag was cut from some more Taylor patterned paper but I positioned the die so that it would include the branding strip as well to add some more interest and then finished it with some more gold heat embossing.
These final tags again use the Shay Tag Die for the base and then were embellished with die cuts, a label sticker, another floral cut file, and the flower from the Sarah Dies. I added some messy gold stitching to all of the tags to add a little more texture to them and to tie in the gold embossing and hardware.
The Taylor Kit is sold out but you can still grab items from the collection a la carte and digital cut files never sell out! This project took some time to put together but I love the outcome and it pushed me to dust off my cutting machines and put them to work.
