So I digress... lets get back to day 9 tag. Tim Holtz decided to take it easy on us by giving us a simpler tag to do. Its only simple if you have all of his supplies... which he has at his fingertips.... including that adorable Vagabond . So he also used this new die of his ... .to make rosette's. No, I don't have that either. I can't emphasize enough to anyone that wants to give me some Tim Holtz supplies some of the items on my wish list. Hint, Hint, Hint! LOL!
First off, I decided to make my own paper..... pulled out a sheet of craft cardstock. I stamped the entire paper with my musical notes stamp with archival ink. I heated it to make sure that it would not rub or smear when I started manipulating the paper. So then, I pulled out my Scor-Pal and went to work. I cut the first one and had it all assembled to realize that that was one huge rosette. Ok..... so I miscalculated. This time I cut the strip 3/4" x 12" and then used the Scor-pal to score this strip in 1/2" increments. I cut off 1/4" from one end and turned the paper over, then scored the opposite side at the 1/2" marks again or in between the original score marks.... making each score mark 1/4" in width. I cut 2 circles out with my paper hole punch... but ended up free hand cutting them down to the size to fit the rosette. If you don't understand any of this... take a look at this Rosette Tutorial.
I pretty much used what I had on hand for this tag and made substitutions as necessary. Again.... my cricut to the rescue. I used the Blackletter Cricut Cartridge for the sentiment on the tag. I use my Glimmer Mist vs the Perfect Pearls. I had the clear hearts in my stash from my jewelry making days. Unfortunately, I gave most of my sewing supplies away .. including buttons. Yep, I know... but I wan't scrapbooking then and knew that I could use them for this craft.
So without further ado, here is my Day 9 tag:
