Tims 12 Tags (feb)

Hi there Folks how are you doing i hope you are all well and that you have a little sunshine in your lives. Roll on the good weather! Well today i am entering this new idea that Tim Holtz has come up with called 12 Tags.... http://timholtz.typepad.com/my_weblog/2012/02/12-tags-of-2012-a-new-direction.html (find all the details here ...I would have had the blinkie in my sidebar but alas i don't know how to do it .....so if any of you lovely people can help it would be much appreciated.) So i digress....This new 12 Tags is a fabby idea as for the  Christmas 12 Tags i managed up to day 7 i think then had to fold and bow out gracefully( due to work, panto, children, mummy duties, Christmas shopping, baking you get the idea.........!) So his new scheme is simple you have a month to create a tag ......Yipee... So here is my tag for this month 

 I used a large Manila tag and fire brick DI and then did the stamping of the text in the back ground with the same colour I then used the Paper Arsty stamp for the foliage and a Wendy Vechi stamp for the swirl and embossed these elements.
 I love this sentiment i think it says an awful lot and can be used in so many ways. This is one of the Dylusions sentiment stamps .....just fab.
For the hearts i used the Crafters workshop basic hearts set and then covered the large one with Claudine Helmuth sticky back canvas .....i like how that turned out it gives the whole tag texture.....the other two hearts are covered with washi tape that i picked up somewhere. Of course a tag could not be complete without some Tim Hotlz Bling on it hence the key hole and the pin!!

I think without realising it i managed to cover quite a few of the ranger designers there!! Oh well that will make up for not having the angel with the bow or that lovely honeycomb paper ......saw the vid (if you haven't its worth a watch as you can make all sorts of little embellies ) honeycomb paper on my wish list as is them little pearly dangly things that Tim Holtz released as i think that would have just finished my tag of nicely .....oh well a girl can't have everything!!! Anyway i must be off got kids to pick up from school.

Catch up with you soon thanks for stopping by Mandy xx

P.S I went to Art from the Heart ...........FAB ER OONEY.  loved the beginners art journaling!!!!



  1. I love your take on the Feb. tag, I managed to get some honeycomb paper from ebay at a very good price, strangely enough they've sold out of the red, Hmmm... I wonder why. I think it's good when you don't have all the supplies as it makes you more creative, happy days x

  2. LOVE february tag. Beautiful colours and layering techniques. Truly inspirational :)
