12 Tags of Christmas

Tim Holtz will be doing the 12 Tags of Christmas again this year.  Last year was the first time I took part and it was SO MUCH FUN.  If you're interested in joining along, check out his link.  It starts December 1st.  Be prepared to have fun and do a lot of improvising!    Diane

The Results

Here's what I created from the master board.  The first is an envelope which could be placed on top of a gift with a handmade card, maybe a picture of the gift receiver or you and her together.  Any small items that reminds you of her would be nice to include in it.  The second one is a cute way to give someone a recipe, I thought it might even be nice to put a magnet on the back which they could use for notes or other recipes. 
And these are some tags from what was leftover.  All they need is a ribbon or piece of yarn through the hole and you're ready to go.

The next time I make a master board I want to do it with laces, birds, and pretty things that would be a wee bit more feminine.                                 Diane

Master Board

This is my first attempt at a master board.  After I mount it on a heavier sheet of cardstock I can cut it up, add things to it, make cards, tags.  I'll show you some examples when I get them done.  Just something different to try.  Now I have some ideas, too, for some other ones.                   Diane

Being a paper artist has it's drawbacks, the biggest one of them is bits of paper everywhere.  Small price to pay though for the joy of creating.  This page was loosely designed around the idea of images captured in time.  I love the little girl with the huge muff (from Graphics Fairy).
