Playing Tag ...........

........Catch Up

After a busy weekend away at a Christmas Dinner and seeing friends Monday's weather here was freezing fog brrrrrrr and sooooo cold,  I couldn't see further than the end of the garden all day, so I decided to stay in and play tag!  Each Day Tim Holtz is making a new tag Pop over and see they are such fun to do and today's tag is just sooooo gorgeous (think a lot of improvising will be happening on this one as yesterdays too)  Here are the tags I made yesterday. Quite a bit of improvisation going on!!

Day 3

Day 4
 Day 3 really enjoyed this one had to improvise on the small card as I don't have any vintage Christmas papers the tape flower was a great tutorial I got very stuck up and laughed along the way defo a technique that's needs more practice from me! did any one else get all sticky -  or is it just me?
For day 4 I didn't have any Facets so used a fragment not the same  but I did the same technique on it, also didn't have any suitable papers as I usually don't use them much so I stamped Santa onto tag and added some gems. Very much an inspired tag.
 Day 5 I actually did this tag first as I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it. As I didn't have the metal numbers I used grungeboard numbers and painted them and embossed them - I love how they bubbled up and the effect that gave.I love metal embossing and the flowers turned out great using the powder colours I had you eagle eyed crafters out there will see I have also improvised in other areas too. 

I only have day 6 and today's tag to do now which  hopefully I will be able to do today and post before tonight.  Will link these to Artyjen's site too where all the people playing along with the 12 tags for Christmas are linking.

Blogger is playing up big time and nothing is going where I put it even the text hope it is readable when I post!!!!
Bye for now

  2. Love the tags Maggie. I also struggled with the tissue tape. It's definitely got a mind of its own. Sue xx

  3. Love your tags Maggie. your improvising is great. I struggled with tissue paper due to lack of tissue tape and got even more glued up with Pritt stick!

  4. They are terrific tags Maggie and would never know you had struggled as they are perfect. Love them. Annette x
