A Tim Holtz tag to share...

Hello! Today I have a few tags I created for my nieces. I just loved Tim Holtz's April 2015 tag post. I mean I fell in love with that tag and a few others he created for his blog this year! So I bought some of the stamps and dies he designed to created some of my own tags.

You can find all the instructions on how to create a tag like this HERE on Tim's blog. He is so talented! And I love the wonderful stamps, dies and line of distress inks he has created with Ranger, Sizzix and Stamper's Anonymous. My two nieces are big fans of his as well! I truly enjoyed making these tags. There is watercoloring and spiriting, distressing and die cutting, then the sewing. Totally therapeutic. I love creating things, it just makes me happy!
I mailed out these tags to my niece's Stacy and Melissa today. I hope they enjoy them as much as I had creating them! Thanks for stopping by.
