Family Tag Feud: Day 10

We are back at it after a weekend break in the feud to do (what else) a weekend getaway at DisneyWorld! No one does the holidays like Disney, so it really helped us get in the holiday spirit…although we could have lived without Mother Nature’s added “special effect” of the North Pole-like temperatures.

One of today’s tags even includes a family picture taken last month on our first visit to see this year’s decorations at the Magic Kingdom! (Christmas starts in early November at the parks, just like at the mall.)

I hope that you are ready to start voting again…because we’re hoping we made it hard to choose today again!

Family Tag Feud: Day 8

Welcome to Day 8 of the Family Tag Feud! (Yes, we’re still a day behind…I guess we’re stretching out the fun to make it last a bit longer!)

If you have any questions about how the tags are made, we will probably wait to answer most of them in the reveal at the end so that we can answer without trying to hide the identity of the artist. But in the meantime…ask away!

Today we both tried to do some somewhat new things for us, and some trial – and error – was the result before we finally produced the tags we are posting. It’s amazing how long – and how many steps – it can take to produce something that looks to the eye to be very simple.

Well, let’s take a look at what we came up with today…the tag stash is getting pretty thick. I hope the binder ring I’m planning to use will hold them all when I’m ready to arrange them all nicely!

Tag #1:

Supplies:

City Nights paper pack by Anne Langpap (Two Peas)
Digital Date Stamps Brushes & Stamps No. 20 by Katie Pertiet (Designer Digitals)
Free Holiday Party Kit by Brandy Buffington (Two Peas)
Font: Hawaii Killer

Public Domain elements from Open Clip Art Library:

Tag #2:

Supplies:

BasicGrey Perhaps (Snow Queen)
Alterations by Tim Holtz for Sizzix Tag & Bookplates Die
Stampendous Wood Mounted Rubber Stamp (Music Score)

Ranger Super Fine Detail Embossing Powder (Clear)
Recollections Rhinestone Stickers
Stampin’ Up! Winter White Embossing Powder
Stampin’ Up! Stamp Set (Snowflakes)
Bazzill Cardstock (Kraft)
Inkadinkado Clear Stamp Set (Season of Swirls)

So…we hope we made the choice hard for you…

Family Tag Feud: Day 7

It’s time for the day 7 tags of the Family Tag Feud!

It’s surprising how challenging we are finding it trying to create this volume of tags from the limited amount of Christmas seasonal items in my stash and that we got out shopping when we were preparing for this. I typically don’t buy a ton of seasonal stuff so we are trying to get creative with a lot of non-seasonal items. We actually had to make an emergency Michael’s run today for more supplies for future tags!

For today’s tags we did actually find some things in the stash, though, that we hadn’t used yet. We both (coincidentally) decided to use Tim Holtz’s beautiful Odds & Ends ticket stamp set for the first time, for one.

[FYI, if you are following along with Tim Holtz’s 12 Tags, all of his products are on sale right now at Scrapbook.com for 15% off. You know what I call that? Job security for my UPS man! Haha.]
