Twelve Tags of Christmas
Okay, I am playing along with Tim Holtz on his wonderful 12 tags of Christmas! I have one and two done. My renditions are not exact because I am not going to buy new things to do them. I love to figure out alternatives and see how close I can get!
Here is number one Tim's dies - nope (Insert a sad, frugal face here). No problem, I punched my fence and free cut the house.
Tag stamp - nope. Used a vintage tag with rub ons from my stash.
Star charm - YES! Yeah, I am glad I make jewelry.
So, day 2, I am bound to have more supplies! Right? Right? Nope!!!!
So I didn't have the right stamps, the felt or the quite right colors. I did have this fun Tim Holtz bird stamp and I was able to do multiple colors on it. Didn't have exactly the same flourish or music. The music stamp is from Crafty Secrets and I thought it did great for the background.
Okay, so here is keeping my fingers crossed for day 3, gotta have one day when I have all of the supplies on hand. Come on Tim, come do an inventory before you create another tag!
Here's wishing you more holiday joy!
