holy wow! I can’t believe that yet another year of Tim’s Tags has come and gone! the 12 tags of 2016-remix (http://timholtz NULL.com/12-tags-of-2016-december/)has been so full of inspiration and revisiting the techniques from years gone pass makes me realize how many things i have done and forgotten, and also makes me realize how far i have come!!
I know I am not the only one who loves to look back and see what each tag/technique we have done gives us the inspiration we need sometimes when that mojo is missing. I personally have mine all hung above my work space and literally look at them each time I am stuck. all the techniques can be transformed into an art journal page, a canvas, a scrapbook layout, a card etc….
so here is my final tag for 2016. as i was creating my tag this month i wanted to end my 2016 with a thought…. ‘cherish the moments’ is how one really needs to live each and every day so that is what i went with
and a few close ups!
i didn’t follow exactly as tim did but that is what i believe he encourages us to do every month….recreate using his techniques but make it our own…..thank you so much tim for all your inspiration (http://timholtz NULL.com/blog/)though the years.
today I am jumping in here quickly just to show you how fast and easy it is to put a couple of cards together using Sizzix dies and festive papers
so for this first card I cut the large oval out of the stitched oval (http://www NULL.sizzix NULL.com/661188/sizzix-thinlits-die-set-pk-stitched-ovals)set, backed it with a bit of festive paper and die cut Eileen’s banners from the banners and pennants set (http://www NULL.sizzix NULL.com/660329/sizzix-thinlits-die-set-8pk-banners-pennants)…all that was left was to add the word Peace from the vintage tidings (http://www NULL.sizzix NULL.com/661605/sizzix-thinlits-die-set-3pk-vintage-tidings)set
and then I used the oval that was left from the first card, added the tree from the woodlands thinlit (https://www NULL.simonsaysstamp NULL.com/product/RESERVE-Tim-Holtz-Sizzix-WOODLANDS-Thinlits-Die-660978-660978TH?currency=USD)die and a simple chit chat sticker (https://www NULL.simonsaysstamp NULL.com/product/Tim-Holtz-Idea-ology-SEASONAL-CHITCHAT-Stickers-TH93050-47066)…
see what I mean.. simple and fast! I might add a piece of twine down the side of this one!
so I believe that I may just take a few minutes tonight and cut myself out a few more and then call my cards for the year done!
how about you? have you finished your cards yet!
i am here today to quickly share with you all my version of this months Tim’s Twelve Tags – Remix 2016 (http://timholtz NULL.com/12-tags-of-2016-november/). for all the step outs and the hows to’s drop on over to his site and following along!! you have one day left to post your take!!
for me this month was a reminder of how much i love to just lay a sheet of remnant rubs (https://www NULL.simonsaysstamp NULL.com/product/Tim-Holtz-Idea-ology-GILDED-HOLIDAYS-Remnant-Rubs-TH93250--TH93250-) on a tag and let be what happens after a quick rub..the randomness of the whole thing is what makes a wonderful background for the tag or art journal page and i love that
so here is my take:
i chose to use the white remnant rubs as i am in full Christmas mode in the studio preparing for an upcoming class and with the forecast of some snow i thought i would do the whole winter theme… i used the snowflake from the blueprint christmas (https://www NULL.simonsaysstamp NULL.com/product/Tim-Holtz-Cling-Rubber-Stamps-CHRISTMAS-BLUEPRINT-CMS135-46738?currency=USD) stamp set along with an idea-ology piece and the back ground the snowflake from the layered snowflake (https://www NULL.simonsaysstamp NULL.com/product/Tim-Holtz-Sizzix-Bigz-Die-and-Texture-Fades-LAYERED-SNOWFLAKE-660040-660040TH) die
i loved using the metal sheets as the background for my believe…shiny things make me happy!!hope you all enjoyed creating your latest piece and that you have uploaded your projects for all to enjoy!
