TIm Tag 2011 - Day 1

YEAH!!!! The day is here! I love this time of the year - Tim is doing his 12 Tags of Christmas. The Day 1 tag is elegant!

I have sworn NOT to buy ANY SUPPLIES! But to use what I have. I don't want to replicate Tim's tag but use it as inspiration.

So here's what I did have - the tag Die and the pine cone die; and the pearls. Everything else is a substitute. I used grungeboard precut letters and some green glitter (an off brand I got at the Expo). I used Amuse Studio paper because it has that nice white core that shows thru when you sand it. And I had some coffee-dyed ribbon a friend sent me for my birthday a few years ago. I had bought some great "vintage" embossing powder that was white and gold mixed...I love the flecks of gold!

So! Day 1 is complete. Can't wait for Day 2!


  1. Deb, this is stunning ! I like everything on this tag. I like the snow look and the pearls on top. Just beautiful !

  2. It's a beautiful interpretation of the first tag! I like that green....and your use of the embellishments is great!

  3. Love your colors and choice of embossing folder. Great spin on Day 1!

  4. Love your take on the tag. Thats a very pretty shade of green card stock.

  5. Very elegant! I do like to do my own version of Tim Tags. New follower Deb found you through Jean your style a lot!
