So I found a bunch of quotes that I liked. I wrote them in a word document. Then I found some new free font to use to make them because I wanted some different font and if I was going to do this I wanted to make 4 sets. At that point I had the brilliant idea to make 2 more set of each so that I could put some in my etsy store... that's when my idea went on the crazy side I think lol. Because each set has 10 tags... so multiply by 4 that meant already 40 tags.... multiply by 3 sets and now you have 120 tags. YIKES it's a good thing that I didn't do the calculation before hand because I wouldn't have done them lol but I'm happy that I did so now it's all good (wasn't yesterday however because my arms were killing me)
The next step for those was to print them, dye them with coffee and bake the sheets at 350F for 5 minutes each batch. Once that was done I die cut, distressed, etc. which you can see in the video that I did here:
It will give you an idea of the time it took to make the sets lol because that is live time not speeded up like I usually do.
Here are the different sets that I made:
AR Berkley font
And that set can be found here.
And this set can be found here.
Hope this will inspire you!!! I can't wait now to actually make my altered journals!!!
In the meantime I'm entering the tags in the following challenges:
