Happy Monday, crafty friends, and happy first of June! This weekend, I had the great pleasure of posting an altered tag tutorial over on the Sizzix UK blog, The Making Journal. And today I wanted to share this cutie pie project, featuring the adorable Gertrude the giraffe die set, here with you, too.
Tags are one of my absolute favorite projects to make, as I always find them useful for so many occasions. This sweet tag with the new Gertrude the giraffe Colorize die makes me think of the adorable zoo animals that are often used for baby gifts and décor, so I went with that theme in mind while creating this tag. This project uses several Tim Holtz die sets from both Chapters 1 and 2, and I love how well the whimsical styles work together. The Doodle Art background plays beautifully with a Media Marks hillside, and creates a perfectly little outdoorsy scene for all your favorite critters. I think any of the playful Colorize animals from Chapter 1 and 2 would look great on here. And think how fun a whole row of these tags together would be.
My Mom made a wall hanging out of felt that had a giraffe very much like this that hung in my brother’s room when he was a babe, so this project is filled with nostalgia for me. Isn’t it funny how simple bits of paper can bring back so many memories?
You can check out all the details and step-by-step tutorial for this tag on the Sizzix Making Journal, if you’d like to learn more.
Hug your people, friends! And sending out lots of hugs from me to you!
Thanks for stopping by!
