We’re a pretty crafty bunch, with everything from Scrapbooking to Art, Embroidery to Photo Management, paper to digital – really, a little bit of everything! Initially, I met many of these gals through a Layoutaday, and then more through a crafty Facebook group. Either way, we all share a passion of crafting and sharing, so the idea hit me that as much as I enjoy checking out their blogs and sites, you might like the same!
Every Monday, a few of us will be sharing our creations with each other and you, our fabulous friends and readers! I hope you’ll pop on over and check out what everyone is up to, creatively speaking of course. It always amazes me where we’re able to find inspiration, especially in those unexpected and unfamiliar to us gems!
To start off our tour, I’m sharing a fun tag I made for a tag swap last month when I went to Arizona for a creative retreat. I was actually lucky to meet some of these fabulous gals in person, and now you’ll be meeting them in our Make It Monday posts – talk about a fantastic treat all around!
Part of the fun in meeting up with a couple dozen friends from all over North America at our retreat was a fun game we played, guessing who made which tag, based on a few clues within the tag and how it represented each creative mastermind behind it 🙂 Being from San Diego, I couldn’t help but incorporate the beach into my tag. Not too subtle!
I had a blast making this tag! One of my favorite parts was adding texture to the Starfish (or is it called a Sea Star?!). Can you guess what I used to add texture? Check out this short video clip to find out…
If you’d like to learn how to make this tag from start to finish, stay tuned as I’ll be posting my downloadable class on the Clicky Chick Creates Etsy shop!
Now head on over to check out more crafty goodness… You may have come from my friend Karen at Photos Kept Alive – she has great tips – for both digital and paper crafters! Even if you didn’t come from her site, be sure to head back to check out her post! But first, check out my friend Margareta at Use Your Stash and be ready for a visual and creative feast! Margareta is one of those incredibly creative types who makes it all look fun, has great tips, and definitely empowers us to use what we have! Head on over and let her know I sent you! I hope you enjoy our inaugural Make It Monday blog hop!
As always, thanks for stopping by. Have a joyful, creative, blessing filled day! Make sure not to miss any future posts by signing up for the Clicky Chick Creates email list here! You’ll get a great little freebie download as my thank you!
