Tim Holtz 12 Tags of Christmas: Day 6

This tag is so CLEVER! Tim Holtz 12 Tags of Christmas is great fun! It's great to play along!

Not only does Tim give a video on his blog using his new Vagabond machine (very helpful video, I might add!) but he also gives step by step instructions on how he created this tag.

  2. This is my favorite tag! I adore the texture fades and stamping combinations that are so easy to do, but look complicated. I am also thrilled with the additional uses for the tree and deer dies. I was never really sure that they would be all that useful to my crafting...until now.

  5. This one is my favorite so far - really pulls at my heart strings! Such romantic (to me) elements: the soft colors with the punch of red, the music, adding the wreath around the reindeer. I haven't had the time to try any of these, but when I find some time, this will be my first attempt.

  8. I love each and every one of Tim's tags but more so on how he inspires me to want to create every single day from the moment I wake up. I can only wish that I had more of the supplies that he is using as it is expensive to get them where I'm living. But also to note that I always come back to you guys for all his products! Keep it up!
