Tag...You're It!



 


There's a new Tag...You're It! challenge blog started by Jackie Blackwell and the first post is a mini challenge based on this inspiration photo. How ironic that I'm in the process of packing for a beach vacation coming up before long, so I couldn't resist playing along! I was also inspired by Naomi Witzke's adorable card HERE that I came across on Pinterest.  Every bit of paper on my tag was taken from my scrap pile!  I tore 3 different shades of blue (I'm guessing it's Soft Sky, Pool Party and Bermuda Bay) and punched the flip flops out of a textured cardstock (? Bazzill).  The "towel" was dry embossed using SU's Square Lattice embossing folder.  

I love that the challenge is for CAS tag designs!  So often, I see really complex tags created and I cringe at the thought of the recipient trashing it  as soon as the gift is opened!  With CAS designs, there's much less cringing going on - lol!  This was also the first time I used this bargain bin flip flop punch by EK Success.  How sad is that?!  Especially since I've had it since end of last summer!  The "happy" sentiment is from MFT's Accent It - Celebrate Die-Namics and the tag base is MFT's Traditional Tags STAX Die-Namics.  Thanks for stopping by...appreciate all of your comments!

I just ADORE this tag! I love the word, "HAPPY" on its side and the patterned paper coming in on an angle. The torn paper looks great too. Wonderfully balanced design!!! Thanks for playing along with us at the Tag You're It! challenge!

Wanda, your tag is fantastic, and I love the way you interpreted Naomi's creation and made it your own. Love the word on the side - really stands out against the Kraft and other colors!
