Lasting Tag Fun

December 4, 2011

in Lasting, Tom Holtz 12 Tags

The 12 tags of Christmas starts tomorrow at Creating Lasting Memories.  As we did last December, I will be sharing the teaching responsibility with the super talented Trisha Easley.  Trisha will start off class tomorrow, Monday, December 5, at 1:30.  Here’s the tag she will be showing us how to create:

tag 1

Lots of Cuttlebug work here.  We plan on having a couple machines available.  But if you want to bring yours, we would not be turning it away! Trisha did say she will be pre-cutting some of the items. I love those little acorns – that’s a Memory Box die.

Then, our second tag, that yours truly will be teaching, features the cardinal stamp and die by Heartfelt Creations. I love this stamp!

tag 2

If you haven’t heard already, our product that will be used on every tag, is PAPER TAPE.  Not just those by Tim, but also those by 7 Gypsies and others.

I’ll be suggesting the following Tim Holtz Tag Basic Kit (in addition to our usual Basic Kit):

craft mat, 3-in-1 Beacon adhesive or Glossy Accents, distressor, ink blending tool and foam pads, distress inks, sanding block, tonic scissors, paper piercer, & mini mister.

Class size is limited but we do have room for 2 more in Monday’s class.  There will be more fabulous tags on Tuesday and Wednesday (classes begin at 10:30 a.m.) and then the schedule repeats the following week. Please call and sign up. Tags for the next day will be posted the day before.  Looking forward to sharing this time with all of you.

Some have asked, “What do you do with the tags?”  First, you can easily make them in to a card (3 1/2 x 7)  which fits perfectly into a legal size envelope.  Then you can hang them on your tree, or a wreath or a swag. Like this:

Last, but certainly not least, if you want some more inspiration, check out Tim’s blog for his 2011 Tags.
