Tag! You’re It!

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! I always get excited when a new catalog is released – I love poring over the pages, examining all of the goodies and sharing the new catalogs with my awesome customers. When I placed my demonstrator pre-order at the beginning of December, I ordered copies of the 2019 Occasions Catalog and 2019 Sale-a-Bration Brochure so I could get them in the mail to my customers. Here are the covers of these books:

Stampin' Up! 2019 Occasions Catalog and Sale-a-Bration BrochureWhile I can’t show you the insides of this books yet, I shared closer looks at the projects on the covers earlier this week – if you’d like a closer look, please click here:

Each of the sets of catalogs I mailed out was adorned with a sweet tag I created with the Geared Up Garage Bundle. Instead of going with the masculine theme of the bundle, I gave the elements a feminine color scheme. Here’s a look at the tag, attached to the Sale-a-Bration Brochure:

One end of the 5″ x 1-7/8″ Thick Whisper White tag was punched with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch. On the other end of the tag, I added a 1-1/4″ x 1-7/8″ strip of Melon Mambo cardstock. I cropped the gears (the largest die cut is cropped with Smoky Slate, and the smallest is cut with Melon Mambo) and glued them to the tag. I stamped the sentiment on Blushing Bride cardstock and punched it with the Tailored Tag Punch. The Tailored Tag sentiment is popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Here’s a closer look at the tag:

  1. This fresh color mix makes these dies so much more versatile. I adore the tag for sending with the catalogs!

  2. These could not get any cuter! Fabulous tags…..they look wonderful on the catalogs!

  3. Love how you made the gear diecuts feminine! So clever! Great infinity shot and thanks for the color combo to save. Have a wonderful day, my friend.

  4. You ARE the King of infinity shots, Brian! And who diesn’t love pink and gray together?

  5. When I received my catalogs the first thing I did was show the hubster the tag you made and he loved it also. That set is #1 on my “to buy” list which seems to be growing daily. How many gazillion of those tags did you make and how long did it take? Wow! I hope your hand isn’t aching from all that punching and die cutting. You did an amazing job and you wish list sheet was very, very much appreciated. Thanks Brian.

    • Yay! I’m so happy you like it, Grace! Also happy your hubster will encourage you to add this bundle to your order. ♥ I’ll tell you a secret – please don’t tell anyone – but Mom helped run some of those dies through the Big Shot when she was visiting for Thanksgiving. She enjoyed it. ♥

  6. These are so fun and such a great idea. I am having trouble gearing up for the new catalog. I am still working on Christmas and New Year’s cards and gifts. Oh well, it could be worse. I just wanted to pop in and tell you that this is such a great idea and wish everyone a good holiday season.

  7. Great tag, it’s a perfect example of gears being for woman as well. Love the infinity shot.

  8. Fun ! Love the whimsical girlie addition !
    Cute tags !

  9. I received mine in the mail yesterday and was THRILLED!!!!! You are a fantastic human, Brian King. ThAnK YoU!

  10. Adorable tags…love the color combo you chose!

  11. Your infinity shots always make me smile! I love when you post them!
