Tims 12 tags of Christmas Day 1

Hi Everyone 
Thanks for stopping by .....Well its Tims 12 Tags of Christmas http://timholtz.typepad.com/my_weblog/2011/11/12-tags-of-christmastag-1.html 
 So here is my take on day 1. I really wanted to follow closely what he did and use the same products but since i never had hardly any of them here is what i did instead ! Saves running to the craft shop!! 

 here is a closer look .....

So first i never had blue craft paper so out with the evergreen bough and inked the background .....i never had his embossing folder but i did have the seasonal one and you get  edges with that so i put that through the machine a couple of times .....then i never had the fancy Noel but i did have his grunge paper letters which i added some glitter to .....yes you have guessed i did'nt have his pine cone die but cool demonstration on video ..i did have some brown flowers and think they look quite a lot like pine cones ....i cut out some tattered leaves and then arranged them .....for the banner i had a stamp shaped like the banner die so used that on lost and found stash and cut it out........for the bling i cut up my children's broken princess jewelery which i am chuffed with as i never had to purchase anything for this tag it was all in my stash .......i like the finished effect...what do you think .......anyway off to do tag number two as i was working yesterday so this is a late entry.......catch you later on .......take care Mandy x

  1. Wow! I thought your pinecones rocked...I love that at least I can't tell the difference between flowers and pincones. Takes a lot of pressure off! Great tag.
