101821 October CKC Challenge #2 - Tags & Labels

May 2021 Hip Kit Club Main Kit


Master Forger of Ceremonies Tracey has given us our second October Counterfeit Kit Challenge!

In the May Hip Kit kit there are a few patterned papers that have labels, tabs and tags on them (American Craft Amy Tangerine Brave & Bold, Pink Fresh Keeping It Real Big Mood and American Craft Jen Hadfield Reaching Out) so for Challenge 2, I want you to use as many tags and labels are you can on your creation. The minimum is three...... the maximum is ???? whatever you can humanely get onto your creation, let see who can get the most!! 

I managed to use 34 tags!!! Plus 17 photos.

I included a number of tag tools in my kit for this challenge.

 I didn't have a particular idea in mind but the colorful Vicki Boutin papers in my counterfeit kit + a fall color tour road trip taken earlier this month proved the perfect inspirations! I used a tiny leaf punch at the stripe intersections to create two-toned leaves.

I journaled the places that we visited around the edge of the circle.

That gorgeous leaf tag is from Paige Taylor Evans 20 Days of Fall/Autumn Cut File Bundle!

I diecut 15 tags to hold 1-1/2"x2-1/2" photos. 

I zeroed in on this part of the spread to show the scattering of leaves but the middle & left photos were of our "Bigfoot/Sasquatch" sighting in a store window! The Upper Peninsula of Michigan has a running joke (at least I think it's a joke?!?) about this, with lots of themed tourist souvenirs - fun!

Using tags on your layouts is as simple as cutting the corners off of a rectangle! I hope you'll share your take on the tag & label challenge with us. Keep creating with your custom kit & watch for these posts to close out October:

  • 24th October: Follower Showcase - who has caught our eye this month 
  • 31st October: Killing Kits - an idea or two for using up the bits & pieces left in your kit box
