Tim Holtz 12 Christmas tags Day 2 & 3



Can anybody tell me why I made my tags so big, the second day one took some filling. Day 2 I had not a thing that was used by Tim, but day 3, wow I had the bird cutter. I found the second one quite difficult, as I have very few Christmas stamps. Pine trees yes, but no other useful ones. The bird is a wooden one that I have made into a robin, and as the top right hand corner looked bare I made a tissue flower .
The third one I enjoyed making as I love birds, and I could use my fav branch stamp. The lichen fell off a tree in the garden, and it was in and dried. No digging under the snow to find some. I didn't have tissue tape, so used stamped repair tissue, and an old button. The greetings thingy is stamped with two stamps, and attached with a paper clip, as I don't have any of the funny pin things Tim used.
I suppose I had better go and feed the men, they will be getting fed up with me being in here all day, making tags.. Tomorrow we have friends here for dinner, so I will make the next one on Sunday.

Your tags are gorgeous Wendy, and all the more special for being made with individual things from your own stash.

Hi Wendy...great that you wanted to join the splinter group :)
About the linky thing....I think the problem is that on the first tag you posted you typed in your generic blog address....and you are probably using this for the next one too....you need to type in the web address of the specific post...you can do this by clicking on the title of your blog post which will make the web address appear in the box at the top of your browser...highlight this and copy and paste...for your post today is should read http://wendyscraftjournal.blogspot.com/2010/12/tim-holtz-12-christmas-tags-day-2-3.html

I bet that is as clear as mud!! LOL
If it is not that I'm afraid I don't have a clue
