Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2014 - January

This year I've decided to take part in the Tim Holtz monthly tag challenge. This month I didn't use the technique shown, but I did "Remember the now."

This month my sister participated in the Run Disney Marathon Weekend at Disney World.  It was her first half marathon, and her goal was to finish. She finished the race in 3 hours and 27 minutes, and as she crossed the finished my family and her two girls were there to cheer her on.

It's Been A While

Finding the time to regularly post here has been one of my biggest challenges this past year. Hopefully, this year will be better. I have however, had time to work on a couple of projects that I think turned out really well, and I'd like to share them.

The first one I made for my sister-in-law who was attending a no wrap wedding shower.  She wanted to cover her gift in clear cello wrap since it consisted of multiple items, and a card just wasn't going to do the trick.  I had just gotten a new Julie Nutting doll stamp, and it was perfect for a gift tag.
I cut the tag on my Cricut using the Bags, Boxes and Tags cartridge. Then I used Tim Holtz distress inks to color the background, and stamped some flourishes on.  For the Bride's dress I used Diamond Stickles on the top and her headband, added some flowers, and done. This was really easy, fun to do, and looked great on the gift.

Since I got into Mixed Media this year I purchased a Tim Holtz configuration book.  It sat on a shelf for months. I would look at it and cringe thinking, "What am I going to do with this?" While organizing my room I found pictures from a family vacation we had taken at the Jersey Shore.  It took me a while to complete, but it was worth the time and effort.
