The Tim Holtz October Tag & More Inspiration!

Happy Wednesday!
Have you seen Tim Holtz's October tag from the 12 Tags of 2012 series?  I know it's been said before, but the possibilities truly are endless! Prepare to be wowed:


I love the details and techniques that go into this...luckily there are instructions and great photos from the making of the tag - check them out at Tim's blog and practice some of the techniques on your artwork! 

Here's what Tim used:

To infuse your day with even more inspiration, here are two creations from members of our Simon Says Stamp & Show Design Team!  This week, the Challenge is easy peasy - just pick Your Favorite and get crafty for a chance to win $50 to Simon Says Stamp!
 

Made by Ashli Oliver!
 
Ashli had this to say about her page:
I can't help it. I am totally in love. In love with patterns, especially tiny repeating patterns. Echo Park's Everyday Eclectic collection has the perfect mix of whimsy, color, and of course pattern. For this week's theme, I am putting all of these papers to work on this photo-less layout that will be the cover page to my 2012 album. After selecting my most favorite pattern for the background, I cut up the journaling card sheet and layered those bits up with some messy-stitched circles. My favorite Thickers and wood veneer accents finish off my layout that is filled to the max with my favorite patterns!

Ingredients:


Made by May Flaum!

May says:  
From distress inks to stenciling, playing with resist prodcuts to aging with rock candy crackle I had an incredible time making this gift tag. Every single piece on here is a favorite - including my techniques. One of my favorite things right now is using stencils with a blending tool and distress ink - I love the color and all it adds to my projects.

Supplies:


Make sure to check out what the rest of the team made and take a peek at their blogs!

  79. Both are wonderful. The layout is artistic and personal and about family. The tag is cool with the stenciling and all. This may not be in the running, but when I hit Candy's blog, I was impressed with her tag the most. Her sky is sensationally colored and it just all comes together. I left her a comment to let her know.
