Tim's Tag - January 2014

Happy New Year to you all!

Here's my first offering for 2014 - a tag for Tim Holtz's 12 Tags of 2014.  I should thank him really as I've had chance to have a good rummage through my stash and remind myself what I have and that it all needs a darned good sort out!!  For this challenge  I only had the Chit Chat stickers and a spinner  so everything else is improvised.

I've used Iced Spruce and Pine Needles Distress Inks with TH's Clockwork Mask for the background.  The stamps are from TH's Fairytale Frenzy and Stuff to Say sets.  The clock is made up from a Heidi Swapp Clock stamp, with a silver embossed frame, a gear and a spinner.  The date I made using Hero Arts Alphabet stamps with a fragment and it's finished with some scrunchy ribbon coloured with distress inks.

I'm hoping to make useful stuff this year in challenges ...otherwise I end up with piles of tags that I don't know what to do with.  This may well get framed with the other 11 should I finish them all! What does everyone else do with their makes???

Well thanks for visiting and reading my waffle.  I do wish you a very creative 2014 and hope you are all safe and dry and that this wind and rain wears itself out!!


  1. Happy New Year to you too Elaine, I love your take on Tim's tag - great improvisation! I keep my tags on a pin board for a year and then file them away in a tag storage folder in date order - sounds incredibly organised but I am not really, I just don't have room on my wall for more than one year at a time! Hugs, Anne x

  2. A brilliant improvisation Elaine! Always great to use what we have already...especially in January!
    Wishing you a happy & creative 2014.
