Hello everyone!

I am so sorry I have not posted anything for awhile! I promise soon I will get back to it! I just have been very busy at the start of 2014 and have not managed to make anything for a while, I have still been crafting, but not with tags and stuff. I have been doing some paintings for family and for myself. I have since got a new lap top that I absolutely love and I am working on buying a new camera for myself. I have big plans for my blog and other areas coming this summer, maybe a little earlier! so don't forget about me ha-ha! I will be back soon I promise! I hope you all have a a great start to your 2014!

12 Tags of 2013- December!!

I cant believe this is my last 12 tags post of 2013! It feels like this year has went by so fast... but then scrolling on my Facebook post.. I realized that this year has been filled with loving memories that I will cherish forever. this months tag I really had to play around with to figure out how I wanted to make it. I think it turned out pretty good! here it is!

to start I just made a simple background using the following products, just like tim did

this Is what I got

then I taped some tissue tape on the background and covered them with ink.. you could have did this before you inked the tag but I just didn't know I was going to use tissue tape until afterwards.  I added this step because felt like this tag needed a little something extra
then I stamped a saying and added my flower
I made the flower the same way Tim did it so I didn't think I needed to explain it.. but you can visit his blog under Decembers tag, and he explains how to make it.

This year has been amazing:) I hope all of your guys have had a great time creating along with Tim Holtz just like I did:) I am excited to see what 2014 has in store:) and thank you guys for sticking along with me I hope your year was great as well! I still have to get a new years resolution that ill probably forget about again! I was supposed to loose weight this year... yea that didn't happen lol

Ill see you guys next time!! I will post a couple more before the end of the year so this isn't the last time ill talk to you amazing people:)

12 Tags of 2013- November!

Hello everyone! I hope everyone had a great thanksgiving full of family and friends and lots of love!. I know my thanksgiving meal took a lot of planning, but the pay off has been great!.
these last few months I haven't been posting a lot of posts.. which is sad because my blog has been growing in popularity. this month has been so busy, I made this tag a long time ago but im just getting to up load it... like a day before it ends ha-ha!
here's my tag of the month!

So  I started just like Tim did with a black tag and then I followed his instructions to correctly do the chalking technique.

I used a label and used my idea-ology bubble letters to write "invent" on it. I finished with some glitter glue down the side and a blue ribbon at the top that has some pins stuck to it.

I pretty much stuck to what time did... im a more colorful person so of course I had to add the blue embellishments which is perfect for the winter time!

here's some extra pictures I took.

thank you guys for reading!! see you guys next time!!

12 Tags of 2013- October!

hello everyone!! So I'm not going to lie I struggled a little bit with this months tag.. I couldn't get the products I had to "work" with Tim's techniques. After I tried a lot of different ways to make all the cool glittered pieces work.. I couldn't get it to look quite right... so I " improvised" I needed to get a tag up this month and with one day left in October I'm finally getting it up! so here we go... my Halloween tag!

So as you can see I used to "funky" items that I don't normally use in my daily use haha
for the background I went with the old fashioned distress ink in Dusty concord, iced spruce and black soot
I then glued on some letters from idea-ology along the left side of the tag
then I took a tiny glass bottle from idea-ology and I put some clear glue in the bottle. then I added some green alcohol ink. the alcohol ink does not want to blend in with the glue so it made a cool slimy affect. I also put a scoop of the black soot distress glitter in there to make it speckled.. I turned out pretty cool  and disgusting looking at the same time.. but what is better for Halloween
I just added some more embellishments to the tag and then I was done with a tag I actually liked haha
I attempted to make my tag with all the glittered pieces like Tim's, but I just couldn't get it to work.. I was a little bumbed but I think this tag looks great too!
Here's some more pictures


ok so I hope you guys enjoyed!! make sure you have a great Halloween filled with lots of family and friends and of course.. crafting!!

thanks for everything and sorry again about putting this up last minute!! I promise to have the November one up sooner!

12 Tags of 2013- September

Hello everyone!! I finally got around to uploading my next tag of the month! mine has been finished for awhile and I'm super excited to finally get around to showing everyone:) My inspiration for this tag was obviously Tim's beautiful tag, but I also got a new stamp set, and I wanted to use them:) as always.. I'm a very happy girl when I get to use a bunch of bright colors:) I love making tags rainbow colored! so here is my tag

If you like this tag, and would like to know a little about how I made this.. just read below!!
I started with some clear embossing powder with a poka dot stamp on a blank manila tag. I stamped the stamp in the top right corner and the bottom left corner. then I heated it up so that it would stick to the tag.
after that, I added my distress ink colors

I used squeezed lemonade, picked raspberry, salty ocean and spiced marmalade ( distress stain )

I then added some chit-chat words
then I embellished with a metal key and some crinkle ribbon that Inked with the same colors I used on the actual tag, and a stamp. just like that I was done:)!! here's some extra pictures

thank you guys for reading!! I hope you enjoyed this months tag and I cant wait to check out everyone else's tag! enjoy the rest of your month!! ( I cant believe it is almost fall! this year has flown by!!)

12 Tags of 2013- August!

hello everyone! so I'm posting this post really late and I do apologize about that but I hope you enjoy my version of Tim's tag this month!

I do not have a lot of time to explain this tag, but I just layered the colors of inks below and then covered the car and the Eiffel tower with a pierce of cut out paper because I didn't have the masks that Tim used. then I just stamped over the images and embellished with a few things not much though:) heres some pictures below as to how I created this tag:)

 thank you guys for reading and be sure to keep reading for more of my projects:) and make sure to have a great day:)

12 Tags of 2013- July!!

hello everyone!! so this months tag is very patriotic! I loved the idea of putting crackle under the distress stain! I think the final effect looked really cool! and the brayer technique was just pure genius and I have already used it on some of my other projects!
so this is my tag and I thought the final effect turned out pretty cool!
the first thing I did was to die cut the old glory die and paint it with rock candy crackle paint
then I used barn door and salty ocean distress stain with a brayer and rolled it on the tag just like Tim did to his tag

then I went around the edges with vintage photo and walnut stain distress ink. this is what it looked like at this stage

then I used the same distress stain over the flag and stars then its all about embellishments and finishing touches and your done! to glue on the stars and the flag I used foam dots.
