Tim Holtz January Tag.....

Hi Everyone,
Well I was not going to take part in the tags this year as I am so busy with work etc... But I blame Anne (Redanne) as she gave me so much inspiration when she made the tag holder she bought from the lovely Helen from her esty shop...I had to purchase the tutorial as Anne had done a fabulous job...so hence me making Tim's Jan tag...I didn't have all the goodies that were needed so I used some other bits & bobs... I hope you like it.


 The stamped background is from Kaisercraft..the pocket watch die I did buy last year and the cogs are also Tim's die as is the embossing folder...I don't have any of Tim's rub-on's so I used the stamp set from Creative Expressions (Art Saying's)  I also used a large paperclip to attach the medal....

I would like to enter this into Tim's challenge

Thank you so much for your visit today..... x x

Wow, May - that is a glorious take on Tim's tag - so glad Anne tempted you into it... and if you're making a holder, then you'll just have to make all 12!! Gorgeous grungy background, and the Artist At Work trinket is fab!

Redanne said...

YES!! I am so glad you bought Helen's great plan and even more pleased to see you join in Tim's tags, if I had my way, the whole of crafting world would join in! Your tag is just fantastic - I love it, the paperclip is brilliant and I love the sentiment too. Alison is right, if you are making the holder you just have to make all 12 now (time permitting of course). Hugs, Anne xx
