Friday Die-Day!

Hello friends
Welcome to Friday Die-Day.
Today I'm featuring Labels and Tags.  When I first saw this set it just shouted USEFUL to me!
You've got labels, tags, tickets and decorative embellishments - 10 dies in all.

Here they are cut/embossed (eagled eyed among you may notice I haven't got the tiny tiny rectangle tag...
I'm still searching - I know it's somewhere!)
I've chosen quite masculine colours - all will be revealed below.
 The large and small ticket dies are super clever - it even adds a perforated line. 
Yes it's a tag again..but I was planning on making this one for my Dad, I stamped this tag on air at Create and Craft last week and brought it home - no waste! 
Stamped a sentiment onto the shaped label, layered a darker one beneath and positioned it over another shaped label. 
 I then chose to create a key-ring look by gathering all the smaller tags together, 
threading them onto a jump ring, adding a little charm, 
positioning and securing them with foam pads and tying them all up with twine.
 The finished tag.  I think he will like it but....
 he'll like it more now....!
Before I go - I made this card some time ago but it features the circular tag from this collection.
Did I mention how useful this die set is...!?
 Take care friends and have a wonderful weekend.

Hi Christine, love it when you show dies I have never thought of buying and demonstrating what can be done with them. Another wish list item.

Thank you received my gift after my card was shown in your gallery the other day.

Morning Christine, it is funny how you look at dies and think that they would probably not be that useful. Then when I see the demos on your Friday Die-Day slot I look at them in a different light. I think it is that you give examples of how you can use them which is great for me. Thank you. Funnily enough, my wish list grows every Friday now...I wonder why???
Have a lovely day although the weather does not seem to be cooperating with giving us some sunshine at the moment. At the moment it is rain, rain and more rain.

Hi christine - these dies look brilliant cut - looking at the packet they would not have appealed, but seeing them now, it has changed my mind. These do look very useful.

loving die-day, it is a brilliant idea.

Hi Christine I certainly agree with what the other ladies have said! I would never have considered these seeing them in the packet. But just seeing them cut and embossed makes me feel I NEED them!! Oh dear my poor bank balance!! Thanks for the inspirations hugs Susan x
