Hello there! What a weekend! Now its the start of a brand new week. I wanted to share my tags I made for a Tim Holtz workshop I did last month. I tried to incorporate lots of technique and different mediums and materials. The first tag uses a letterpress technique for the background and of course I made the little charm house using one of Tim's techniques from I think it was last years tag.

The next tag uses a heat embossed then inked background. I used one of Tim's alterations dies, some primas, a ticket and a Martha Stewart snowflake punch.

The last one uses some paint on a stamp....then inked for a resist technique. Then a rolled flower embossed with UTEE.

Hope you enjoyed seeing what I came up with for my version of a Tim Holtz tags class. Still some things to share this week so I will be back. I am almost finished about you? Have a great day!

Oh Happy Day!!

Hello I did not forget my blog again. Its just my son is a wrestler and in the past 8 days he has had 5 matches. And if you know anything about wrestling its all about sitting and waiting....waiting....waiting oh ....until the next match. LOL But he has been doing awesome.....we are so proud of him. Any way....back to why you are visiting.....I do have something to share.....a Christmas mini book. The pages are made using 1 12x12 sheet of double sided patterened paper. Pretty cool! The poinsettia on the cover was cut with my cricut and embellished with rock candy distress stickles and kaiser pearls.

Oh....I had someone in one of my comments ask about the directions for one of my sorry....will be up in the next day or 2. Hey all have a great Sunday and stay warm!

Update!!!! Finally!

Hello there! So sorry this little blog of mine has been seriously neglected. Busy busy busy is all I can say! LOL But the wait is over! I have lots to share and will try to post all week. Projects coming today are my November- December Advanced card class that I do at my LSS. Later in the week I will show you the mini tag book I created, the version of a Tim Holtz class, and some projects I am working on currently which include a December Daily journal, Tim Holtz tags[my version of the ones he is creating currently....check his out if you aren't], and an art journal.....something I have been wanting to do for a long time! Thank you to all my faithful blogging friends for being patient with me. So hopefully I can inspire you with my little projects! Now enough talking....lets get to the cards!
Card #1 Of course I used a Just Rite Stamp, spellbinders die to create the card base, and some copics for coloring and flower soft for some added texture and glitz.

Card # 2 uses more Just Rite Stamps, jewels, a hand made flower{shown in class},and a spellbinders die
. It is a wonderful card to place a gift card inside!

Card #3 Last but certainly not least uses again a Just Rite Stamp for the focal image, Gorgeous ribbon, Martha Stewart corner/boarder punch, and a Spellbinders die. Its a folded card....pretty cool huh!

There they are! Please remember to click on any photo to reveal a lerger image. All patterened paper is from Graphic 45 Christmas collection. Hope you enjoyed today and I hope you are inspired to make some beautiful Christmas cards! I at least have 3 done! LOL Have a great Sunday! Bye for now!
