Tim Holtz 12 tags of 2013 – May

After taking a long break from crafting I’m now getting myself ready to re-enter the craft world, so to get my feet wet I figured a tag would be the best way to go. πŸ™‚ When I think about tags, I can’t help but also think about Tim Holtz and his fabulously grungy, vintagy (is that even a word? lol), technique-filled creations, so I stopped by his blog for inspiration.

Each month, he shares a new tag, posts a tutorial on how he created it and challenges readers/followers to link up their creations inspired by that month’s tag. You can follow along as loosely or as closely to his design as you’d like. πŸ˜€

Here’s what I came up with:


#8 tag
Fancy Pants rubons
Distress stains
Distress ink
Unity Stamps
Staz On ink
Tim Holtz Idea-ology Film Strip Ribbon
TH Idea-ology Muse Token
TH Idea-ology Word Band
TH Idea-ology Trimmings
G45 brad


Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots
Terrifically Tacky Tape

    Loved checking out TH’s inspiration for the May tag (thanks for that link), and now have come back to see how you stacked up! I am totally blown away at how you stayed true to his tag, yet definitely made it your own! Great detail, great compilation of colors! Bravo!
