Trying my hand at Tags:)

     Hello crafting friends in Blog land,  the weekend was very craft productive, and it is not even over with yet!!  I had a couple friends ove this weekend that want to learn a little about putting a card together, and we had a great time.  I have been doing a lot of crafting getting ready for aq craft fair too, but I wanted to just relax and try my hand at a few tags.  I have ALWAYS admired Tim Holtz, he is amazing when it comes to making tags!!

     While scrolling through the internet, I found his 2011 12 tags of Christmas, and I did not want to totally copy him, just try to make something like it. After all I do not have all his wonderful tools yet.

                                                                             First Tag

                       I apologise that it is sideways, I tried to rotate it, but it still loaded on its side:(

                                                 Second tag

                                           Third and last tag

I really had fun making them, I think I am going to make some more:)  Below you will find a list of supplies used to make them.
