12 tags of 2014 with Tim Holtz

Hi all :-) I finally got around to joining in with Tim Holtz 12 tags of 2014, catching up by making both the January and February tags today. You should see my craft room ,,, and my fingers ,, ink everywhere, but it was fun :-)

I don't have all the products that Tim uses for his tags but that is half the fun, it's all about improvisation eh :-)

First up is January.



I didn't have a pocket watch die so my Silhouette Cameo came to the rescue, actually there were quite a few products I was lacking, I didn't have the right colours of Distress Stains so I used my ink pads and I really love the finished result of this one ,,,, THANKS TIM :-)

Next up ,,, February,, the month of LOVE :-)



I used a new Simon's Exclusive Repeated Heart Stencil for this and the sentiment is from  Simon's Exclusive Chalkboard Love stamp set.
Now I am looking at the photo, I am not so keen on the zig zag across the bottom, I will be ordering the Industrious Stickers Borders and will replace it when it arrives  :-)



I am in the process of thinking about re-vamping my craft room and plan on buying a big canvas to display all these tags, that will give me an added incentive to make sure I join in with all 12 :-)
Thanks for looking and I hope you will think about joining in with the year long tag event too :-)


Challenges :
Totally Gorjuss,,, Sentiment as the Focus ( Feb tag)
The Artistic Stamper,,,, Use Distress 
Really Reasonable Ribbon,,, Anything But a Card + Ribbon
The Crafting Cafe ,,, Embossing ( Feb tag)
Simon Says Stamp Monday ,,,, Love Notes ( Feb Tag) waving to my sisters and brother ;-)




Hope you all have a great week :-)
Happy Crafting
Luv Lols x x x
