12 Tags of Christmas - Tags 4&5

Howdy friends!  I'm sharing tags 4 & 5 today.  Tag 4 took me a lot longer to work on than I anticipated because I had to wait for stuff to dry - but it was worth the wait!  If you are being inspired by Tim's tags and playing along you may be thinking "I don't have all that stuff!"  Well, let me tell you, it can be intimidating at first - 2 years ago I went and bought all the supplies.  Last year I bought a couple of items and tried to use my own stuff to fill in.  Well, this year I've made it my mission to not buy anything and use what I already have.  In tag 4, I used packaging that a Cricut cartridge came in!  Later on, you'll see I used wax paper in place of glassine (but that's a different day).  You too can seek around your house - you'll be amazed at what you find!!

OK - enough of that chitchat -  on to the tags!

Tag 5:

I have to say that I love how these are turning out!  I'm being creative and having fun for no reason at all!  I put last year's tags on my tree and I enjoy seeing them displayed.  I think I might frame some of these this year and have them as wall art next year.  What do you think?  Tree, framed, any other ideas?

I'll see ya soon!

12 Tags of Christmas - Day 1

Howdy friends!  I am participating in Tim Holtz's 12 Tags of Christmas again this year!  I LOVE learning new techniques and revisting older ones that I've forgotten about since last year.  This year has already been so much fun!  I am starting with Tag 1 here - but I may post out of order, or all together because I'm a bit behind in sharing my tags.  I have been creating a bit here and there and just enjoying the creative process for no other reason than just because!

So - my first tag!

I really enjoyed making this one with my stash on hand.  I was able to use my plethora of Cricut cartridges to help me with the die cuts.  I created the Noel with Cricut Design Studio, Winter Wonderland Font, and Tie the Knot and welded them together.  The leaves and holly are from Winter Frolic and Christmas Cheer, respectivley, and the pinecones are actually flowers from Flower Shoppe.  Thanks for stopping by and looking - I'll try to get the others posted as well. 

You should go check out Tim's amazing blog - he is awesome!

Just a Card

Howdy folks - I'm just posting a quick card I made for my Aunt's birthday.  It was great to go along with PTI's Make It Monday technique.  That is all for now - I really need to finish Christmas cards.
