My splinter just got much bigger!

I guess I should have done them in numerical order but am not going to waste time changing them now.

Tag 12
Boy those roses were tough to make. Took awhile but pleased with the result. This design of Tim's is a very pretty tag. Everyones looks lovely. I did stamp the flowers before I cut them out. I saw something similar on Artyjen's blog and thought it was a great addition so this is because of her. Thanks. It just gives an extra dimension to the flowers. The Noel tag came from Louise from Kard Krazy in the package of things she sent me. I think it works just fine here.

Tag 11
Reindeer leaping. Improvised flowers by punching out glittery paper flowers and trimming some images to fit the centres.

Tag 10
Magnificent Cheat
This is a magnificent cheat and I am not ashamed but rather proud. It was so easy to do and I think works fine. Yes metal through a Cuttlebug embossing folder and then cut to size and coloured how Tim coloured his only I had to use a paint brush as I do not have those smart alcohol ink  pens. The ridges on the embossing made it easy to colour as they gave little walls to contain the ink.

Tag 9
This is my absolute favourite tag both with how it turned out and the enjoyment of making. It is also very personal to me. The film strip are tiny images of my daughters, some when they were  dressed  as a star in the primary school nativity play and others dressed up for a halloween party. Such dear memories. Oh yes the poor little soul in the main picture is me being blasted with a snowball by my horrid brother. To good a shot! The other reason I particularly enjoyed this tag was because I do not think I would have made anything like this if I hadn't been playing along.

Tag 8
Another favourite because I think Umbrella Man works really well as a substitute to the lamp post. I love this image so in fact I actually prefer this image on the tag. I am also proud of my metal corner. I used a corner punch on some puree tube then cut out larger than needed and fitted and shaped to the corner. Embossed into it to give it a swirly look.

Tag 7
This was another tag I particularly enjoyed making. I substituted the Father christmas stamp with a Paper Artsy stamp which I think works rather well.

Tag 6
This one was fun and games. I didn't have a car stamp so found an image off the internet which I clear embossed. used a different Christmas Tree stamp. I did play with my stickles and highlighted the "S an G" of the greeting with it.

Tag 5
I really enjoyed making this one. I didn't have a spruce branch so improvised with a fir cone!

These are all wonderful! I keep repeating myself, looking at blogs, but it's the truth: the personalization we've each done with Tim's tags is so very nice. I know I continue to learn from you & others, seeing how you tweaked the tags with what you already have & such.

Fan-tag-stic tags!!!

Love all your improvising - they were all fun to make weren't they especially thinking of the alternatives and what would work instead. I have to say yours all look great. I especially like the unbrella man, I think he works better than the original lamp post!!!! Well done you xxxx
