My Valentines this year were made to resemble Tim Holtz's first tag of the year. You can see it here. I love learning from his site and trying my best to duplicate his work. Practice, practice, practice! I have envied his work for awhile now.
I used mostly Tim's products. I had the pink honeycomb paper in my stash as well as the ribbon and key. I made several of these and the recipients loved them, at least they said they did!!! Tags have become my lastest craze. Here are a couple others that I made too.
This tag I made into a card and gave it away in a box of miscellaneous cards for a fundraiser locally. It was a card that I really enjoyed making too. The background took on a leather-look when I inked my embossing folder before I ran it through my Big Kick. I love the way it turned out. My bling hanging from the chain is one of Tim Holtz's and his way to "frost" it and emboss it. Here's a close up of it.
And here is one final picture! I know you're probably tired of looking at them, but I AM proud of them!
This is a bundle of my tags that I made for Valentine's. Now, to make some more for next year. I want to make several and "build" a tag set for Christmas presents this year.
Thanks for looking at my special Valentine's tags. I hope that I may have inspired you to try something outside of your box or comfort zone!
