the eCal/Scal FB page is hosting another tag reveal beginning today, September 1. Only 3 tags -- but they've been incredibly fun to make and create.
The tag I'm choosing to share today is this one.
I love fall and have lots of fun memories of raking leaves into great big piles, helping my dad put them into a wheel barrow and moving them to a bigger pile. We would play for hours in the piles. Once all the "play" was done, we would have a bon-fire (the leaves were the fuel), roast marshmallows and make s'mores. As the cooler weather arrived, warm cider or hot chocolate in mugs and freshly made doughnuts would often great us.

Open SCAL and select Tag 2 from the library. Size to 4 inches wide and 6 inches tall. You'll need to ungroup and resize the circle near the top of the tag and center.
Open the quote bundle and select the quote, size as needed. Make sure the image is set to print + cut print. The SVG was colored using the Gradient feature and 4 colors using the radial feature. You can play with the sliders to get the best effect.
Create your Spiced Cider image. Don't have a cent sign, create your own using a lower case "c" and a lower case "l" in separate text boxes and overlap the l onto the c. Center in the circle. If you have trouble creating the text, refer to the SCAL user manual for best results. Set all the lettering to print + cut print. Highlight the circle, select Effects < Contour Cut (Shadow Layer) and leave at the default setting.
The plaid border at the bottom of the tag is a separate horizontal rectangle and is filled with one of the digital papers in the pack. It was pretty close to the ribbon I had on hand, so I used it.
Drag and drop the Cup onto the mat. DO NOT UNGROUP yet. Highlight and select Effects < Contour Cut (Shadow Layer). Create a shadow that is .30. Select blackout. Click ok. Now, you can ungroup the cup and separate the pieces for cutting. Fill the middle band with the same plaid you used for the rectangle. Be sure to set it to print + cut print.
Print all printables. Cut all pieces. Ink if desired for a little more dimension and texture. Assemble the cup. Place foam dots on the back and place on the tag as shown below. Adhere the spiced cider circle to the shadow circle. Foam dots were also added to the back of the shadow of the spiced cider circle. Add your ribbon and secure as desired. A staple was used in this example.
Thanks for dropping by. Hope you'll check out all the tags being shared this week on the Facebook page and elsewhere. Set aside some creative time this week. Enjoy the flow and nurture your heart along the way.
