12 tags of christmas - 6 and 8

Here are tags 6 and 8 (I wasn't keen on 7 and didn't have all that snowy stuff - sorry Tim!)
I'm not keen on the bird one, but I really like the way my baubles turned out!
I didn't have grungeboard ones so I just cut them out of card. I didn't have metallic crackle so I used glitter glue and I didn't have Tim's Christmas stamps so I just used a mixture of patterned stamps for the background. In fact - you could say mine are 'tags on a budget!!'
If you want to see Tim Holtz's proper versions, have a look here....... Merry Christmas everyone!

Oh my gosh! I love Noel. It's gorgeous colors and a rich feel. All have been beautiful, but this one just jumps out to me. Have a great weekend. :o)

These are so great! I think I like the bird one best of all!

I love both of them Linda - the baubles one is stunning but the bird one is so cute (and blue is my fave colour at the moment.)
And I still haven't got around to having a go at any tags (I only got as far as cutting the tags out....)

P.S I didn't like day 7 either - first time ever I haven't liked anything Tim as done.

I also like them both, but prefer the Noel one....that's this year's theme for our choir program at church! Very nice!

Well I would never have thought they were "Tags on a budget" I love the bird one , but the other is definately my favourite, I adore those colours. I think you have done a fantastic job, they are just as good as Tims and yours are original. I like them very much, Jaqi xx

Well done Linda your tags are very good I love them all.....
I gave up after the third as I was waking in the early hours to see the next one!!!!
I will do them after the event!!!!

DH took over my room with varnish !! so it had to go on hold until the smell had gone as it affects me!!!!
Plus I have just lost the plot at the moment....
But I am enjoying seeing what you have done..

Love Sharon xx

They are fantastic, I love the bird one the best. I haven't done any of the tags myself, I hardly have anything he mentions and it would cost a fortune to go out and buy it! I can dream though, and look at your beautiful recreations.

I love these tags - you inspired me to have a go at making some as well. Keep going, I can't wait to see the next batch you show us!

Anesha said...

Your tags are fantastic! Great job.

Jacky said...

Love your "budget version" tags Linda.... very innovative of you. Meee.... I would have just not done them thinking I didnt have what I needed...not you, you improvise.

Well done, I think they look great, especially the one with the baubles.

Chris said...

I think it's wonderful that you came up with such beautiful versions of your own tags Linda...they are all stunning in their each individual way :D
I hoped to follow Tim's 12 days but there just didn't seem to be enough time in my day so it has been a delight to see yours...well done :D
hugs
