12 Tags of Tim Holtz


I made this for a challenge with The Craft Hole (https://www.facebook.com/#!/groups/thecrafthole/) on Facebook for the 12 Tags of Tim Holtz. We were to make a tag (6 1/4 x 3 1/8 in) based on the 12 Tags of Tim Holtz (http://timholtz.com/12-tags-of-2014-february/). If we don't have the same supplies he used we were to improvise since no one has the same supplies that Tim has! I didn't have a tag that size, so I made a pattern using 8.5 x 11 typing paper and then traced the pattern on a piece of patterned paper. The paper is from Studio G Valentine's kit that I bought from Walmart a few years back. The sentiment "There's no greater love than to love and be loved." is from A Glimpse Inside (http://www.aglimpseinsideblog.com/2013/01/valentines-day-chalkboard-printables.html) it can be printed many different sizes if downloaded, but if you click on print it prints out a full size 8.5 x 11 page. I did that first and realized I didn't want it that big, so I downloaded it to my computer and printed it out in wallet size.  I decided to use my Stickles to give the tag some shine! I used Jim Holtz Distress Stickles Vintage Photo, Stickles Pink, Stickles Crystal, and Jim Holtz Distress Stickles Dusty Concord. The ribbon is American Crafts Peachy Keen and the brad is Making Memories Antique Copper Mini Circle. I glued the sentiment down with Elmer's Washable School Glue stick. I have decided that if I use this tag in my scrappin' I will add some cardboard to the back or some stronger cardstock. I look forward to making more of these now that I know that they're easy to make! :) TFL! I just recently made a purchase from Close to My Heart and received my shipment today so be looking for a post of those goodies soon! :)
