Craft goals for 2018? Buy less and make more!
Hello everyone Gabriela here today with a video showing how to make a shaker tag! I started by choosing a paper from the Chiffon collection and die cutting my pieces. I stamped an image on what would be the inside of the tag and while that was drying I worked on the front of the tag. This tag can be used with a gift or it can be adhered to the front of a card. I finished it up with a stencil some Powder Puff Chalking Inks, die cut stickers, and a piece of ribbon. Check the video out below to see the whole process.
I hope you enjoyed the video and you make some shaker tags of your own, happy crafting!

Not really, but I wish that were true! I have been trying to up my crafting game and it's resulted in some purchases of supplies and then actively using them. I try to make sure that I use my supplies regularly and I haven't bought new supplies (besides adhesive) in a few weeks. That might not sound spectacular, but for me that's a long time. The truth is I realized I have enough supplies right now to go "shopping" in my craft studio; that realization forces me to use/rediscover what I already own. Doing this has yielded some "Responsible Crafting". I'm using that to refer to things like making swatches:
Practicing my handlettering:
And even working on my digital art:
I've been working to really get the most out of my supplies and I have to say I'm pretty happy. I feel like I have fallen in love with some of my supplies all over again, which I like because I think it's easy to fall into the trap of "hoarding" supplies and being afraid to use your "good" supplies. To be honest, the whole reason you buy things should be so you can use them. I'm trying to take my own advice there, happy crafting!
I have been continuing through the challenge and here are this week's updates.
This was created by using some patterned paper, my nesting circle dies, a hello die, and a Stampin' Up stamp. I colored the image using Copics and then drew a "back" of the image with a Copic Multiliner.
I made this card with a coordinating Stamp and Die set from Stampin' Up. I used a piece of acetate for "glass" in the window, I colored the images in Copics and did the background with Distress Ink.
Tomorrow I will be featuring the Chiffon Collection from QuickQoutes, I'll be showing how to make a Box Card. Happy Crafting!
