12 Tags of Christmas – Next instalment

Day 3:

December 036

Okay – I panicked slightly at this one.  No tree/branch stamp!  No Tim Holtz Bird die, no tissue tape and no Tim paper to cut the “postcard” from.  Ahh! But I did have a memo pin, lol.

To make matter worse, Tim put tinsel on his tag!! What the . . .?  I loathe tinsel!

I used a Silhouette file for the bird, a plant stamp for the branches, a Penny Duncan cutting file for the flower and a graphic from Land of Enchantment for the postcard.  I found some ruffled ribbon in my stash that had some lurex in it but I still had to force myself to use it.

Day 4:

December 042

This has to be my favourite so far!!  I used a Christmas stamp that I am pretty sure I got from Rubbadubbadoo (is that how you spell it? – can’t find the business card under all my creative mess)

I didn’t have any of Tim’s facets so I used a microscope slide instead.  I couldn’t get the snowflakes to lift off so I just cheated and stamped the over the now blue glass, with silver ink.

The bling is a a Prima corner that I cut to suit and the self-adhesive pearls are from my stash.  The pearl charms are re-invented earrings but I actually has an adage ticket and mini-paper clip from Tim’s range that I could use.  Yay me! LOL


  1. Your tags are wonderful. It's a real challenge finding a substitute when you dont have Tim's product at hand, but that's what gives it your personal touch. xx
