no excuses here...well okay maybe just one - life! I don't know about you, but as I get older my life seems to be getting busier instead of slowing down? Anyone care to tell me why that is?
I have actually had the chance to do some creating in between posting and shipping all the new stuff that has arrived in the shop. One I can't post photo's of as they are Christmas gifts that my niece and I made for the Grandparents, the other I just haven't taken photo's yet and then there is this one! Since I am so excited to see Tim Holtz's 2011 12 Tags of Christmas, I thought I would do a Christmas Countdown Tags set (or sets, have yet to decide if I will do more than the one) for my Great Nephew who is 7 months old and beyond cute I will have you know! (Okay, this blogger is ticking me off everything keeps underlining like there is a link and I am typing double duty here...what gives?)
So for this project I decided I wanted to use some of my odds and ends papers - sad thing is once I decided which odd and end I wanted to use - I only had three sheets of it! There has been a tear of buying this line and of course there is none left in the store now for me to grab! So make do I will try!
The printed paper line is Teresa Collins Noel (from 2010) and the solid cardstocks are Bazzill (Cream & Black) and the red is SU!'s Riding Hood Red. The Tags are Ranger Inkssentials #8 Kraft Shipping Tags. I am only using the new Tim Holtz Limited Edition Winter Distress Inks. The ribbons used on the top of each tag are MME Stella and Rose Boy Trims (black & cream) and the Red/Cream and Twill are SU! from my stash. So far so good on staying on track (only time will tell if I am able to stick with it)! I will give a brief run down on other items I used on each tag....
