Tag 12 - Tim Holtz 12 tags of Christmas

Hi everyone! Here's tag 12 of Tim Holtz 12 tags of Christmas and just in time to link it up on Tim's blog as I didn't manage to do this last one before Christmas. I very much enjoyed making this one and loved all the techniques we were shown and which I used, especially the metal die cutting which does look like German scrap die cuts, another one to remember for the future. I didin't have all the materials used and improvised with the stamps and also with the tissue as I've run out, I used a thin fibre paper instead which has a gold metal filament running through it. As I didn't have the fractured doll I made a clay medallion embellishment and topped it off with sparkly snowflake embellishment that was on a Christmas cracker :). 

I'm really pleased that I managed to do all the tags this year and enjoyed them all too, so thanks to Tim for doing this again this year. I did use all the tags for presents and gift bags, some of which were under the tree (see below) and everyone liked them. I kept the packaging to simple kraft paper and gift bags which showed off the tags really well.

If I'm not back before, I wish you a very happy new year and thank you for the lovely comments that you leave, they're always read and appreciated.

I'm entering my tag into Simon Says Stamp and Show where the theme is 'show a Tim Holtz themed tag'

Chris, I love everything you make. When I first met you it was your Tildas and coloring your own images that awed me. But then you began creating with Tim supplies and you are amazing with that look too. Your tags are all stunning; I could not possibly choose a favorite among these.

Happy New Year, friend. May 2012 hold many blessings for you.
