I Said I Wouldn't Do This!

Ok, I was talked into creating a blog to showcase my creativity. I have been resisting this for far too long, but now is the time to finally get the ball rolling.

So here goes. Come with me on my journey into creativity.

12 Tags of Christmas - Day 5

Wow!  I don't know how he comes up with some of these ideas, but he sure is pushing me to my limits.  There are details that Tim Holtz is doing that I had no idea you could do.  I guess it helps if you just think outside the box.

Well, I didn't have a lot of the elements that he used, but again, I used what I have and I think my tag came out just as nice.  I didn't have any metal numbers, so I cut my numbers out of grungepaper ... painted and embossed them.  I don't have any of his dies yet... so my cricut comes in handy for finding similar accent pieces.  I used Blackletter for the numbers and Lacy Labels for the scallop tag.

Here's the final outcome of the tag:
