Tim Holtz 12 Tags of Christmas-part 1

Hope everybody had a great weekend,I had a fab time. Every year at Christmas my Mom and Dad take us all out to see Santa.This year we went to the Black Country Living Museum on a Santa Hunt. It is a lovely place to visit with everything set in the early 1900's,we had a tour guide and had to find clues to find Mr and Mrs Santa Claus,it was such good fun even for my girls who are the eldest grandchildren.

This year I decided to do the Tim Holtz 12 Tags of Christmas,I love his products and ideas and have had real fun getting inky.I will use the tags for embellishments in a mini album with my Christmas photo's.
I didn't have the Rickety House die so I made my own with grunge paper and I embossed the lines using a score board.



Day 3



Back soon with some more tags.Thanks for taking the time to look and for all the kind comments you leave me,I really appreciate it.

I love the Black Country Museum but it must be years since I was last there. Looks great! Fun times.

I adore your tags - I was really thinking about them this year, but somehow, not feeling the crafty love right now and I don't have many of his products - but your tags here are fantastic! How gorgeous! Can't wait to see the others
