Tim's Tags December 2012

Hello Everyone

This is quite sad as this is the last month for Tim Holtz's 12 Tags for 2012 but the good news is that we get to make an extra tag for the month of January 2012!  So two tags.  You can see Tim's original tags HERE.  I have followed Tim's tags fairly rigidly, where I had the products to do so and this month I was only short a few so was a very happy bunny.

These are my tags:

 
 

On the first tag I used all the techniques that Tim used but I did not have the Idea-ology snowflake so I used a metal one from my stash.  The tinsel at the bottom is Tim's blue one as I used all the silver tinsel on my Christmas cards.  I do not yet have the mirrored card that is in Tim's range and so I did my JOY using some holographic mirror card which has a lovely sheen to it.




For the second tag, again I used the same techniques and colours that Tim did but I did not have the Joy to the World die and used a stamp from my stash on the ticket.  I stamped it with Versamark and then embossed it with JudiKins Black Detail Embossing Powder. 


Again I did not have the Idea-ology deer charm.  I was stumped on this for a while and then had a brainwave.  I took the Movers and Shapers small deer die and cut this out in Shrink Plastic but when I shrunk it down it was far too tiny.  I cut the deer out again on card and then triple embossed it with Debbi Moore's Metal Magic in silver to create a faux silver deer.  I then embossed the shrink plastic deer in the same way.  I was really pleased with the result.  I liked the little one so I put it together with the big one to look like Mum and Baby.

I do hope Tim keeps to this format with his tags for 2013, it is so much easier doing one per month than one each for the 12 days of Christmas and it lets us focus on other occasions throughout the year.

If you do visit I hope you will leave me a comment, I love to read them and providing I can find you I will always return the compliment.   Hope you are all nearly ready for the festivities ahead.  Hugs, Anne xx

  1. Oh boy have you created two beauties here Anne. Love the similarities with Tim's but also enjoying the little differences - holographic card! genius, and your ticket sentiment is perfect. Having won Tim's challenge twice this year I'd say you've done a brilliant job month by month. Perfect way to round off the year here. Huge crafty hugs, Jenny x

  3. Hi Anne, you've created two fabulous tags. I checked out Tim's tags and I think you have done a marvelous job reproducing his effects and style. The holographic card is a perfect substitute as are all your other substitutes. Elizabeth xx

  21. Your tags are lovely! Your reindeer came out fabulously and I think I like the blue tinsel a little better than silver actually. Nicely done.

  26. Both your tags are wonderful Anne! Inprovisation is the BEST! I believe it makes us better crafters.

  27. Super tags Anne. You seem to have had most of the supplies, excellent. I guess you didn't notice Tim used the zero for the "O" in JOY, it had me guessing for a while but then I clicked.
    So, do you think he'll do 13 tags of 2013??? You never know!

  29. Hi Anne, I love both tags, but I REALLY love what you did with the shrink plastic and Debbie's metal magic. Such a great idea. I would really like to get some of the metal magic, I've enjoy watching her use it on the dvd several times haha. Hope your weekend is going swell :0) Mo x

  30. These are simply beautiful, Annie! I would never have guessed that your deer weren't metal charms, they are so incredible. I love that you were able to use the shrinkie-dinked one after all to make it look like a sweet Mama and baby!!

  31. Your tags are fantastic Anne! I really love these two designs of Tims's and wish I'd kept up with doing them each month now!

    I think it's wonderful how you improvised for the items you didn't have and your silver deer are superb, love how you were able to come up with something there.

    Hugs, Chris x

  32. Your tags are out of this world and you way with tags sure has excited me!! You have always been good at improvising and that is exciting to me - turn the brain on Sandy!! I really like what you did with the deer especially the one that you used Metal Magic on. Looks gorgeous and just like metal too!! I am gonna have to write some of this down so I won't forget it!!
    Merry Christmas sweet friend - I sure wish I could be in England!!
