Christmas Tag

Point I stopped at on Monday

Completed tag as of Tuesday

The Tim Holtz Christmas display at the 86th street Michael's
I found some oversized "thickboard" tags at Palette and Paper in Indianapolis a few weeks ago. They were used on Tim's blog by various designers, and I wanted to try a specific project. I was then on the great craft supply hunt to find all of the Ideaology parts required to make anything Tim inspired this season. Palette and Paper had some, some we ordered online. NO ONE had everything in a store. Until I walked into this Michael's yesterday and found this display, on sale, for 50% off.

This is the kind of friend I am: I snapped this photo and sent it to Cathy in a text message, asking what she wanted. She did indeed want the little wood circles, so they went into the cart. It is not enough that I am obsessive/compulsive about certain supplies, nooooo. I have to drag my friends along with me down that merry path.

The thickboard tags are by Stampers Anonymous, in case you are searching. 3 in a pack for around $6.

All of the colored scrap book paper is Tim's collection for Christmas this year. I love that black print. The Christmas Carol music paper is from a very old stamp set of Tim's. I stamped it on mixed media paper, then aged it with Distress inks. Did the same for the Merry Christmas and Dec 25th stampings as well. The rusty star is from my stash, and I do not remember where it came from. Probably online a few years ago. The wreath I made with rebar wire, and some mini pine garland, with the final addition in holly vine. I added a few red berries for a pop of color.

If you are searching for inspiration this season, go to Tim Holtz's blog. There are six weeks of posts from amazing, crafty and talented women. This particular design is from Week 2.

Have fun. Stay Merry. And THANK YOU Alabama. We love you.
