Playing with Tims Tags!

Hi all

I am sure everyone has seen the replicas of T!m's tags all over blogland, I have been dying to have a go too and not one to be left out in the cold I finally (on Tag day 7) threw caution to the wind and joined in the phenomenon! There are loads of examples of T!m inspired tags on Artyjens "splinter group" blog, and even better a chance to win some Tim Holtz goodies from the lovely Jennie at The Artisitic Stamper, plus she is also offering 12% off orders over £10 until 13th December!!!

Mine is nowhere near as perfect as T!m's (of course) or as many others which are popping up on blogs everywhere but I had a bash and am am quietly pleased with it haha! I had to do a lot of improvising but that's what creativity is all about, isn't it? No sticky back canvas so had to just use grunge paper with the textured side up, no woodgrain embossing folder so used my cuttlebug Stylized flowers instead. Never mind, will add these items to my wish list which seems to get longer by the day...

Tim's 12 Tags of Christmas Tags are on his blog with step by step instructions .

Here is my take on the Poinsettia tag, as you can see I creatively placed my leaves in a different position from the original tag (which roughly translates to by the time I got back to my craft room to assemble all the bits and bobs I had forgotten where the leaves were meant to be... once around the goldfish bowl and all that, duh!!):

I used chipboard letters and coloured them with promarkers, sizzix flourish and the button is yonks old, inherited from my Aunty Margarets button collection!

The Artistic Stamper Creative Team are running a Christmas themed challenge this month so I am entering this and also the Stampman are running a Take any 3 colours Christmas themed challenge. Tuesday Taggers are decking the halls this week so the tag qualifies to be entered there and finally Crafty Cardmakers are spotlighting tags in their challenge.

Talking of tag's I am a VERY HAPPY lucky winner of Brenda's tin of tags which she recently offered as candy!! Whoop whoop how lucky am I??
