Although Tim Holtz's 12 tags of Christmas officially ends today, the 12th day of December, my tags will continue because I started on Tag 7 to keep time with Tim. Starting tomorrow, I will begin with Tag #1 and work my way up to #6. So please stay tuned!
We finally got our Christmas tree tonight, daughter is waiting to start decorating, so let's get right to the tag.
Here is Tim's tag #12 . . .
You've GOT to go to Tim's blog today to see two fantastic videos on his movers & shapers dies. I learned some things I had no idea of before. He is absolutely amazing and such a pleasure to watch.
And here is mine . . .
As much as I wanted to drive all the way to Orlando to get Tim's alterations dies of his ornament and JOY mover & shaper, I resisted. I promised myself I wouldn't do that. So instead, I grabbed a Close To My Heart chipboard ornament and traced it onto my inked grungeboard.
A Sharpie pen worked well on this inked and crackled grungeboard.
As I was cutting it out with my Tonic scissors, I remembered the snowflake from the Winter Wonder alterations die (the snowman one), so I punched out the snowflake from the middle of the ornament. Cool!
After adding the wire ornament hanger and the ribbon, I thought it was lacking something so I dug out these tiny bells in my stash. (I've learned to collect any tiny Christmas embellishments as I find them during the year just for the 12 tags of Christmas!)
Tim used some wonderful little pinecones and some greenery on his tag, but unfortunately I didn't have either so I opted for this tiny sled and used my Martha Stewart punch for the fir branches. I love that little sled!
Here's another look at my tag. Be sure to go to Tim's blog because he takes you through all the steps and techniques and also shares a clever gift card holder idea at the end with his gingerbread man alterations die. It's super cute!
Thanks for looking. See you tomorrow for Tag #1.
