Tag Challenge Catherine Pooler 3

My friend Virginia has a new and wildly popular challenge blog and she invited me to participate.  I jumped at the chance!

The current challenge is

V.V. Challenge #4 (June)

Visit Virginia’s challenge site here!  I hope to see YOUR creations entered!

Tags & Scraplings with the twist of recycling….hmmmm….I thought about this for a few days and kept my eyes opened for things that were being tossed in the garbage, but could be used on a tag.

Do you see anything here?

Tag Challenge Catherine Pooler 2

I don’t either, lol!  I decided to RECYCLE something from my “discards and leftover” pile!  If you follow my blog, you know I love to use stuff from my leftover pile….view the video to see how this tag came together and how I colored the leaves.  I LOVE how they turned out!

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial as much as I did making it!

SN_button2-23374 At the end of the video, I mentioned that Virginia has been hanging out with us at StampNation.  She was a Guest Dream Team member last month and she has completely knocked the socks off of our members.

I knew she was an incredible designer…what I didn’t know is that she is an even better TEACHER.  She has jumped in all over the site helping members become a better paper crafter.  We are so darned lucky to have us with her!

Want to have a front row seat to Virginia’s awesomeness?
