Tag You're It! Challenge #1 Guest Designer Virginia Lu and a NEW Design Team Member!

We'll begin with announcing the Winner and the 2 Favorites of our Mini Challenge first. We had so much fun looking at everyone's tag projects! There were so many outstanding submissions but we finally narrowed it down to the 3 below. Congrats and thanks to EVERYONE that played along!!!



Please pick up your badges from the Tags for Your Blog page!

It's my pleasure to introduce you to our latest addition to the Tag You're It! Design Team. Please welcome Marybeth Lopez!!!

I think we're all warmed up and ready for another challenge now! This time you'll have more time to play along, so here we go!

Welcome to our First Challenge!

Virginia Lu is our featured designer for our first challenge. She's a very versatile, prolific and passionate designer. I love her use of vibrant color! Each project she creates is unique and always so artistically expressive. Please welcome her to Tag You're It! Thanks so much Virginia for sharing your fantastic tags with us for our inspiration! Please visit her at her blog: Yes Virginia and play along with her at her informative and fun challenge blog: Virginia's View Challenge.

Here are the details of Virginia's Project:

Supplies: Distress Inks (Peacock Feathers, Ripe Persimmons, Shabby Shutters, Tea Dye), Lawn Fawn Die Cut (thanks), Altenew (Hennah Elements), Perfect Pearl Liquid Droplets, sequins, May Arts ribbons.

Virginia Explains: Based on the colors of “Tag, You‘re It” Logo, I made a colorful background by swiping the Distress Ink Pads colors onto heavy card stock. Then I made a few die cuts and layered them in assorted ways: layered, inlaid and stacked. I hope these tags inspire you to create and have fun. Tags are super easy to make. You can use a die cut or just create your own. Sky is the limit! Thanks, Jackie, for inviting me to be the first guest designer for this new challenge blog.

You'll use Virginia's tags as inspiration for you're project. Please read the How To Play Along page for more information.

Check out all the GREAT ways the design team has interpreted Virginia's tags!
