Tim Holtz 12 tags of 2012 - August

This is my version of  Tim Holtz 12 tags of 2012 - August. If you want to see the full instructions you can find them on his website. I didn't have the stamps Tim used as they don't appear to be available in the UK but I used one of his Texture Fades. I coloured it in with distress inks, leaving the centre free for a  silhouette of my own. For the lower edge I used On The Edge - scallops.

I put the words "memories we cherish" as a sentiment. I dyed ribbon in distressed stain, fired brick and attached it with a wired pin from which I hung a decorative key.

On the bottom half of the tag I made flowers and leaves out of his Bigz Die, pine cone and leaves in purple, red and yellow Kraft-Core paper.
Although I didn,t have the items Tim used to create the tag I'm pleased with it because it shows off my silhouette.


  1. A wonderful take on Tim's tag Carol. I'm so impressed by anyone who can make those flowers!! Hope you are keeping well.

  2. this turned out beautifully Carol. Those flowers are gorgeous and I like your choice of stamp. The colours you chose go together really well xx

  3. Your tag is beautiful Carol, love the colours and your flowers are brilliant. I did see the stamps for sale at Country View Crafts and they do free P&P which has to be a bonus. (the set includes the frame and silhouette heads). I love the tattered pinecone die, it is the only item he used that I have too. Must get mine made.....Anne x

  4. Lovely colours in this Carol, really beautiful with the flowers, and I think the key at the top is like the key to unlocking all the memories to cherish. Love, Jez
