Tim's Tags of 2013:March - Friday 22nd March

Tim's Tags 2013 - March

Hello Friends!

Well, my social media training day went really well was great to actually sit through a workshop and be encouraged to use our smartphones and tablets to tweet!

My friend and colleague from a partner Volunteer Centre, Kim was a great help - she loves doing all the foodie stuff for events, which is my pet hate - so I looked after the organising of the trainer and participants and Kim did all the food: what a perfect day!

I didn't think I was going to get my tag made this month, but I did! This is Tim Holz's Tag for us to base our creations on: you can find the details here

And this one below is mine:

Mine was totally a 'based on' as I didn't have the dies and stamps that Tim used, so I just had to 'adlib'. I had really been hoping he would use the new Easter Blueprint stamps as I have that set, but alas he chose a bunny die...but heck, I still went with the blueprint bunny!

I stamped the bunny on black card with Indigo Blu Flitterglu and then covered it with Yorkshire Dales's a shame that the photo doesn't show the effect so well. I then die cut a frame using Spellbinders Labels Four Small and glued the bunny to blue glitter card before sticking it to the back of the frame.

I used a #10 Tag,which I  backed with Tim Holz Ideology Seasonal (Easter) paper, not really intending to cover it up so much, but never mind! 

Tim used a die to create the grass, but I cut mine freehand using Coredinations paper, which I sanded and to which I added a little Mustard Seed distress ink for highlights.

Before fixing the framed bunny to the label, I tied the pink ribbon around it and then tucked it in behind the grass. Finally I used some die-cut and punched flowers to decorate.

The sentiment is by Creative Expressions, die-cut using Spellbinders Fancy Tags.

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Hi Carole, you have made a stunning tag, this is one of the nicest ad libs I have seen, it really is a beauty! Was meant to go to the NEC today but blizzards and high winds have prevented that so will have a go at my tag too. Glad to hear that yesterday went well. I am still in the dark ages - no tablet or Smartphone and would not know how to tweet either - anyway crafting and blogging take up so much time I would never get round to anything else...... Hugs, Anne x
