You & Me

Hey y'all Mandy Koeppen here with my final post as a Chic Tags Design Team member. As you can tell I am fashionably late with my post and that was on purpose. You see I hate goodbyes, I've never been good at them even when I know I'll see the person again I still hate goodbyes. Since this is my goodbye post and I had this photo of my awesome friend Lisa on my desk I decided to scrap the photo of here because I had a heck of a time saying goodbye to her when I left California in January. See I hate goodbyes. But with every goodbye there will be a hello…

 I love the gold and white together so I chose to just use those 2 color and just the 2 enamel heart would be an added color. I love vellum that's no secret but when you put map prints on vellum my head spins and my heart flutters because both are my favs! Since it's a plane ride to see my Lisa it was a no brainer to use the Let's Go "World Traveler" Vellum Gold Foil Specialty paper.
I embellished the layout with wood veneer from Let's Go"Traveling" , Let's Go "Place's", and Cloud 9 Sequins. I added the Gold Star rub-ons and the Gold Foil Alpha from Good Tidings. Journaling was done on my typewriter. This layout was pretty simple and easy to create in less than 30 minutes. 

Thank you all for letting me share my creations with you over the last few months! Thank you to Veronica and the fabulous Chic Tags team for having me and letting me create with the awesome products!! It's be fun and you never know when I might be back! Thanks again! Have a great day! 
All the best~MK

Misting Your Background & a farewell

Hello Chic Tags fans.  Sherri here to send you off with a bang.  For my last layout I wanted to try something I don't often venture into: misting.
My intention was to use tiny tags to create my photo base, and only colour mists to create my background, rather than patterned paper.  Talk about easy, and fun.  I started by choosing some of the cards from the Cloud 9 Collection, and one journal card from the Let's Go Collection to act as my base, and ground everything.  After that, I simply sprayed some Heidi Swapp Color Shine (in mustard) near the area where I wanted my photo cluster to be, and then dropped some coordinating colours around the outer edges of the yellow.  I then took my long narrow date stamp and placed it just off center to the left of the page.  From there I placed my yellow journal card to be the base around which everything else was layered.

A few Mini Icon cards scattered around with some coordinating buttons and enamel dots, and my layout was complete.

Mixing in just a touch of gold from the Cloud 9 label stickers, and (last year's) Good Tidings Christmas rub-ons, helped to tie in the the gold glitter alphabets that I knew I wanted to use for my title.

I have so enjoyed my time with Chic Tags.  Albert & Veronica are two of the kindest, most encouraging people you will meet in this industry.  They love each of us as designers and most importantly as people, and have been a huge inspiration for me with their innovative and trendy products.  I can't thank them enough for allowing me to go on this wonderful adventure with them.  I wish them all the best in their future endeavors.  I also want to thank each of you who so faithfully popped in to see how I might inspire you to use Chic Tags products.  Your comments always made my day, thank you for allowing me to be a small part of your scrappy journey.

Much love from the bottom of my heart,

Let's Be Adventurers

Hi Chic Tags friends! Happy Sunday to you! Jennifer here today to share a layout I created using the very fun Let's Go collection!  I love working with the bright patterns and colors of this line! 
 
 
I also love adding some of the Let's Go Tidbits to my photos as a fun accent!  The pack comes with 36 pieces including many that have gold foil!  I added this "The Story" tag with my journaling...so cute!
 
Here is a closer look at my journaling (which was done with my electric typewriter!).  I added one of the Let's Go Flair Buttons as well as a sentiment from the Let's Go Rub Ons. 
 
I love to layer papers, as well as little tags and embellishments! Here, I used one of the Let's Go Mini Tags, as well as another Tid Bit, and a Let's Go Label Sticker.
 
At the top of my page, I added another label sticker for the date plus a wood veneer from the "Places" Wood Veneer set. 
Thanks for stopping by today!  Be sure to check out the Chic Tags shop to see more of this collection and much more!  Have a great day!

Project Life: Cali Week



Hi everyone!! Cathy here and don't you just love the Cloud 9 collection? I recently went to LA for a Dodgers game with my job and I decided to pull some yellows, pinks and greens out of it. Design A has always been my go-to layout! 



Enjoy!

The Places We'll Go

Good morning Chic Tags friends!  It is Malika on the blog today.  I have a different sort of layout to share with you.  Two of my kids were due for new passport pictures (we travel frequently across the border since our family lives in Canada) and I didn't know what to do with their old passports.  I decided to pull out some of the stamped pages from the passports and use the pictures on a layout with the Chic Tags Let's Go Collection.  


This collection has so many little bits and pieces that were perfect for tucking under these passport pages.  It was so easy to just keep adding more...


I just love this little piece of flair with the map and airplane!  I used my tiny attacher to stick some of these little tabs down, while others were stuck on with some foam tape to give a little dimension.  



This wood veneer became my title.  I put it off to the side and then layered some labels underneath.


I don't usually scrapbook memorabilia like this, but it was really fun to put something other than just pictures on a layout!  Thanks for stopping by today!

Home

Hey Chic Tags friends! Mandy Kay Starner here to share my very last Chic Tags DT project with you. :( I have had a wonderful time working for Chic Tags and creating with their products. It has been a great run but it's time for me to focus a bit more on my family for a while. There is a fabulous team taking the stage in just a week or so and I can't wait to see what they create. 
But until then, you're stuck with me. ;)


To start off my layout, I used my Cameo to cut out the house, and most of my title from cardstock. Then, I switched out my blade for a pen, and sketched the remainder of my title, right on to the paper like a printer. I love that machine! I layered up a couple misting masks to pretty up my white cardstock with some yellow and teal mists, backed it with some scraps to "pop" it up off my background paper (Let's Go-Captured), adhered my title and then the fun began! I layered up a scrap of Let's Go- Missing you with some Cloud 9 clips and mini icons behind my photo, I added a rub on or two from the Let's Go collection, tucked in a Cloud 9 Acetate Tidbit, and a Let's Go wood globe. I sprinkled in a couple things from my stash and my project was complete.

Thank you so much for stopping by the Chic Tags blog today!
Have a fantastic day!

Hello!

Hey everyone!  Carol here today sharing my last blog post with Chic Tags.  I've had such a blast working for Veronica and will truly miss the team!  Lucky for me amazing product is always available and I'll never go without ;)

Speaking of amazing, the Lets Go collection is exactly that!  It comes with the perfect selection of embellishments and made for an easy layout!


 I kept my layout pretty simple.  The Adventure pp made for a fun and colorful base that I built everything else around.  A few tags here and there, veneer and my favorite piece of flair completes my large Hello die cut title.

Those airplane veneer were soooo fun!

Thanks for letting me share my work with you, its been a pleasure!
