February's 12 tags of 2012


Good Morning! Sorry it's been so long since I've posted, but we finally had to give our laptop back to my aunt...because it was hers...so I am downstairs on my 7 year old desktop right now! I know right?! Anyway, hoping to get something new, but it probably won't be until the summer, so in the meantime, I am being a lot more productive, because I don't have the internet right at my fingertips any more! 

I'm cutting it really close, but I really wanted to participate in Tim Holtz's 12 tags of 2012. I'm really excited about it, because I will have all month to make a tag, plus it's not in the crazy busy Christmas season so it will be way easier to play along! I had a lot of fun with the 12 tags of Christmas last year, but unfortunately I only got about 6 of them done, and I haven't even posted them yet!! I made canvases out of them and gave them to my mom and mother in law for Christmas!

Anyway, here's my take on February's tag:


I don't have his cupid die, but I do have one on my Silhouette, so I cut it out 4 times on kraft paper and glued them together to get the "chipboard" effect. I also didn't have red stickles, but I had sparkly red embossing powder...


I'm not really a big mushy Valentine's person, so when I started making this tag I thought this Graphicat sentiment would be fun to use on this tag! I used Tim's "Bitty Grunge" and "Ultimate Grunge" stamp sets for the background.


I literally did rip Cupid's wing off...hehe...and I put it behind the heart ;) That sentiment cracks me up every time I look at it!!

Well there you have it! I was pretty impressed with myself with this tag, because I used all my own things! I'm really trying to be good and not buy any new crafty things until I use up a TON of what I already own, so *yay* for self control!! lol 

I'm going to enter this tag into the following challenges: Tim Holtz- 12 tags of 2012
                     Scrapbookers Anonymous "G" challenge (Graphicat Stamps)
Scrap Creations: Pop it up
Cute Card Thursday: Winged Things

You did such an amazing job on this tag! I like how you didn't have certain things so you substituted and great idea of gluing 4 pieces of kraft paper together. SMART! Love that puffy heart thing too. GREAT JOB! Hugs!
