Monday with Megan: Tag, You’re It!

Monday with Megan: Tag, You’re It!

As a child, my favorite game on the playground at school was tag. My friends and I couldn’t get enough. Well, some things never change. However, rather than run after pals, I can’t get enough of crafting with tags—shipping tags, to be exact. I buy them in boxes of 500. Yes, 500! And I use them for just about everything.

Here are just a few of my recent tag creations:

Stamped Tags

Nothing like a cute stamp and some ink to dress up a basic tag.

Scripted Tags

I had fun painting different sentiments on this tag batch.

To see more of my tag creations, I invite you to watch a recent television segment I did for Studio 5 (local show), featuring a few tag techniques.

 It looks like I’m not the only one who is taken with tags. Right now, this motif is popping up all over the place. Here are just a few of the terrific tags on the scene right now.

Letters of Love mini album by Els Brige for BasicGrey

This album may have been made in 2012, but it goes to show that tags serve as a timeless design element to incorporate. The layers and detail added to this design are amazing. Make sure you check out the BasicGrey blog for many more looks at this sweet book.

Tag, YOU’RE it! What would you do with tags? What have you already done? I’d love to see what you’re up to creatively—you know, play a game of playground chase, but in the creative sense. So I invite you to tag me here by leaving a link to your designs that I can chase.

Here’s to plenty of fun and games this week!

Cheers!

    I love tags, and seeing all the different ones here has reminded me that I need to play more with making tags! I have made them in the past as little Disney snippets to add to my pages…..but you have given me so many more ideas today. Thank you!

    FABULOUS!!!
    I have to confess that I’ve been a bit slow taking up the tag but now I am totally hooked. Now that I have a Big Shot, I’ve been using little tags for banners and big tags for layouts and have so many tag projects I look forward to trying too 🙂
