August Show & Share

Hello friends!
It gives me great pleasure to start the Show & Share for August.
I am amazed at the responses and would love to continue this monthly feature.
The main goal is to challenge you to create and share with our fellow card-makers.
I am hoping that all participants in this monthly feature can give each other some blog love, offer encouragement and get inspired! Are you gamed!?

This is how it works:
Each month, I will post the link on the 9th day of the month and it will end on the 29th day of the month. On the last day of each month, ONE winner will be announced.
To participant in this monthly feature: 
1. link up your new creation(s) and share it here in the gallery. You can use Instagram, Flickr, Pinterest... or blog for your projects.

2. you are most welcome to use WHATEVER in your stash to create. Old or new products are all welcome. You do not need to purchase new products to play. Use what makes you happy.

3. try out new techniques ,styles and productsThis is your chance to show off what you make!

4. please link to my blog and mention that you are taking part in Virginia's "Show and Share" and use the blog logo if you can. I hope this will help spread the joy of "show and Share" with more card-makers!

5. please share basically one project a week is good if you want to link as many as you can.

You can now find this monthly feature link at my side banners. Simply click on it and you can find this very post. I chose 9th day of the month as a cycle because I was born on Dec. 9th.

edited: This month's Creative Prompt is "Make a Tag" (optional)
You do not need a tag die to create a tag. You can take an actual tag (if you have one) and measure the size and create your own tags. The Tag dies I used are from Altenew Terrific Tags. They are awesome and come in 8 sizes.

I'm so excited for this month's Show & Share! I've never made a tag, but love how they look and how mixed media they can get. I want to try the additional challenge prompt. I love these examples. Maybe I can use them as a starting point. Thank you!

Will be fun to see all the tags! I like to make tags, but will definitely have to up my game a bit to submit one to the Show and Share for this month.

Hi Virginia. Thank you for hosting this party. Was not sure if all crafts are included or only paper crafts. I have posted my decoupaged cans. Thank you.

Beautiful tags!

Virginia L. said...

Thank you for your comments and entries.
To Gail: you are so kind to make that observation. The creative prompt "tag" is an option, so the card entries still count. I just edited my post. I appreciate your feedback! said...

Am posting everything since it is all "new to me" products, mixed media and such! Will try to do a tag too.
