Use Tags for a Title! 1

Nicole here today to share another layout twist using the Shaped Shaker Tags. When I first saw the tag set, I loved all the different shapes and wanted to combine them together in a simple way.
 
I decided to use them as the base for my title on my layout, and thought that they would slightly mimic dog tags too!
 
 
I diecut each paper for the front and insides of the tag shapes and arranged them onto my layout, adding in different fun topping fillers to three of the tag shapes ensuring that I left enough space for some of that shaker action!
 
 
I used the inner foam piece from one of the tags as a full tag, and the foam was perfect to pop it up along with the rest of the tags to form the title for my page.
 

 

All that was left to do was add some simple alphabet stickers to the center of each of the Shaped Shaker Tags, and some twine to finish off my large title of tags!

Hey there, its Laurie Willison here.  I am stopping in today to share a couple of Queen and Company shaker tags!  I have a housewarming gift to give and I though how perfect a Fall themed tag would be.  So I created this...

I used the Shaped Shaker Tags to create this project.  I assembled the shaker box with a kraft tag die cut on the top.  I added the orange diamonds from the Primary Diamonds Toppings set and also added in some copper pearlies from the Matte Pearlies Toppings set. 
I used some die cut leaves from MFT around the tag frame and then added some ribbon, twine and a little glitter gel pen on the leaves, to finish it off.

I created a Halloween themed tag using a different shaker tag box....
Queen and Co Fall Tags
For this tag, I used a glitter washi and a black mini washi to add a little decoration to my green tag frame, I created the shaker box and added the matching washi to the inside of the tag.  I used Black Pearlies and Orange Bubbles to fill the box.  
I added a couple extra touches using MFT's Fab-BOO-lous Friends spider web and the Stitched Alphabet dies to add the word BOO to the acetate part of the tag.  I also added in some orange ribbon and black twine.  I die cut one black tag frame and attached that to the back of the frame, just for another fun detail.

So this is it for me today.  I hope you have enjoyed my fall themed tags.  These shaker boxes are so much fun and add so much pizazz to your cards and gifts.  
Thanks for stopping by today!

Shake it Like a Queen!

Shake it Like a Queen! 1

There’s nothing like taking a day away from diaper changing and laundry to make you feel like royalty. That’s the magical feeling teaching at the Queen for a Day event left me with earlier this month. Wanting to capture that sweet escape, I made this page for my scrapbook. 
When I thought about how to document this fun using the new Tag Shaker Kit, the flag-shaped tag jumped out at me. Its points were a crown in the making! 
Originally, I stopped with some pen doodling, but something didn’t feel right… 
My husband to the rescue. I love having someone who genuinely cares about what I do to bounce ideas off of when I’m feeling stuck. We brainstormed a bit, and the crown evolved. I suggested covering the pen lines with small strips of paper. 
Cory offered up the idea of a row of gems along the bottom, which I love! Nothing like bling to make a crown affair feel complete. 

I placed the journaling in another tag from the kit, which makes reading it a bit more exciting. 
To ground the page, I matted it on white cardstock and stitched it in place. I also added some pen doodling.
I just adore the rainbow paper in the Flirty Floral paper pad, so I decided to make my crown have a rainbow feel by adding pink and orange toppings to the first tag, green and yellow to the second, and blue and purple to the third. I also topped each point on the crown with those same colors, using Epoxy Dots. 
I’ve had such fun watching the month of tag creations take shape. From darling snowmen to photo-filled tags, there is so much you can do with this cute kit. I hope you’ll have fun with it. 
Cheers!

Seasons of Change! 1

Hi there!  Laurie Schmidlin with you again today, and I have two more cards featuring the Shaped Shaker Tags Kit

Tags are one of my favorite things to create as they are so versatile!  They dress up any gift so wonderfully or they create the perfect focal image for a card.  Turn that tag into a shaker and it goes to a completely new level!

 


I love wreaths and the circle tag included in the Shaped Shaker Tag Kit is the perfect size for one!  I created the shaker tag, filling it with several different toppings, and adhered it to a piece of patterned paper from the Dots Paper Pad.  I embellished with a couple of Yellow Rivets next to the die cut sentiment.

Supplies
Shaped Shaker Tag Kit
Dots Paper Pad
Toppings Set:  Pearlies Matte, Sequins, Tiny Bubbles, Pops

  

For my second card, I created a festive Holiday card.  The card was very easy to put together but the frosty toppings in the shaker tag make it look detailed and one of a kind!  I chose toppings that are silver and white in color and backed it with a strip of paper from the Stripes Paper Pad.

Life is so Good with Circles!

Life is so Good with Circles! 1

Hello friends!
It's Mary Ann Jenkins here today with a layout I made using the new Shaped Shaker Tag Kit.  

I used the circle tag dies, but then cut off the actual tag piece and made them in to circle shakers. I filled the shakers with a mix of toppings and colors, I like the different textures combined together!

 
I added the patterned paper centers that were left over from cutting the circle tags, and also added a few larger and smaller circles too.
To finish it off, I added the cute epoxy camera and the black and white Lollies.

 

The Shaped Shaker Tag set was so fun to work with, I've already started on another project to share with you!

Mary Ann

Supplies Used:

Tag Shaped Shaker Kit, Delightful Dots 6x6 Mat Stack, Black Lollies, Yellow Pinwheels, Blue and Green Donut Toppings, Blue Pastel Diamonds, Bright Green Pearlies, Black Epoxy Camera Icon

Forever Friends Shaker Cards!

Forever Friends Shaker Cards! 1

Hi Queen and Co fans! 
Rebecca here with two new shaker cards for you! The thing that I absolutely adore about this month’s Tag Shaped Shaker kit is how incredibly versatile it is. When I think of tags, presents come to mind and especially birthdays or Christmas, but these adorable tag dies and shaker shapes can be used on pretty much any card or project you can dream up!
For my birthday shaker card, I turned the circle tag upside down to make a balloon shaker. Queen and Co Pearlies Toppings are perfect inside this shaker and a Queen and Co. Twinkle Drop makes the perfect shine mark on the balloon.
But this tag kit is perfect for so many cards beyond birthdays and Christmas! I also created a sweet little friendship card using the traditional tag shape as a little shaker window box to create dimension on my scene.
Placing one critter on the inside of the shaker and the rest on the outside adds tons of dimension and interest. I needed room for my sentiment at the top of the card so I simply cut off the tag hanger!
The greatest part about a versatile kit is you don’t have to use it up right away! As you come up with great ideas for how to use these shakers you can continue to use it throughout the year! And you can always grab the Shaped Shaker Refills if you come up with even more ideas!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
:) Rebecca
