WILD WEST TAG SWAP DETAILS

Howdy pardners!

I am back with the details of our fab little swap...as you saw in my last post, you can make the tags in western shapes, or use western shapes ON the tag. I will include vintage cowboy/cowgirl images and vintage card scans, examples and ideas as the tag swap begins!

Each of you will receive on your tag swap envelope at least one of these fantastic images from the silver screen (available at usps.com!) There is a biography on the back of each stamp...WAY COOL!



The criteria:

1. Use the sandwich method of "tagging" (cardstock, chipboard, cardstock) to create 2 tags.

2. Make the tag any size you like...you're only making two so go crazy!

3. Embellish to your heart's content...buttons, ribbon, found objects, whatEVER!

4. Include a western image on your tag...it can be a photo, a vintage card, advertisement, postcard

5. Sign up deadline August 15th.

6. Mail tags to me and I will "trade them out" with your tag partner (this will be done AFTER the tags are in my hot little hands... your tag partner will be a surprise! Please create something wonderful that you would like to receive yourself!)

7. Tags to be postmarked by Tuesday, August 31st.

I will scan and show each tag as it arrives...and I will show you the final Wild West tag ring created with the extra tags each of you will send. There will be little treasures and trinkets added to each tag package, so everyone who joins the swap will find their Wild West tag, and surprise goodies in each envelope!

Giveaways and Contests will ensue! Prizes will be won! Fun will be had by all! YEEHAW! C'mon all you paper cowgirls...here's your chance to shine!

Are you excited yet?

More soon,
Yer Favorite Cowgirl,
Paula Clare

Here I am again! I make two really terrific cowgirl tags and I will get a cowgirl tag back. The extra tag you are going to keep to make a cow tag book to keep. Amazing idea! I can just picture your putting them together and adding your Paula magic touch! Got it! I'm in again! E

I'm so excited to have found Paulas blog along with several other wonderful ones this week :) You girls are inspiring me to get back to blogging and crafting again! So happy to be part of this swap!!

Michele said...

Looking forward to this tag swap! I have done many tag swaps and am addicted to them! I also belong to Swap-bot and trade many ATC's. I am a crafter that likes instant gratification, therefore, paper crafts keep me very happy! However, I am a perfectionist, so I spend a lot of time on my work!
