Like many other paper crafters I love following along with Tim Holtz as he produces his 12 Tags of Christmas.
I got myself organised early this year, cutting all my tags and making them into a book. I made a cover and waited for Tim’s 1st post. It shows up in my time zone about 9pm each day.
I cut extra reinforcing tabs and added them to the left-hand side of my tags. Not at all keen on the colour of the book rings!!! That will have to change but they were all I had at the time.
The only things I have that Tim used are the inks so I improvised for everything else. The “pine cones” are actually seed pods from my Liquid Amber tree. I usually curse the thing because they are really prickly and hurt like the billy-oh if you stand on them with bare feet!!!
I created the Noel on my Silhouette from glitter cardstock and used cutting files from Penny Duncan Creations for the leaves and the flourish.
I used some of the regular Kraft Resist as I don’t have the holiday ones and tore/inked some cardstock for along the bottom. Once the brads were in place I dented them using an eyelet-setter. The reindeer was one of several that I had cut out while up in Rotorua visiting Shell after the Scrapbook Dreams retreat. Bless you for sharing you die with me Shell!! A star brad and some green pipe cleaner finished him off nicely.
Roll on day 3, I say!!
Thanks for popping in to see what I have been up to.
