Tim Holtz - 12 Tags of 2013 ~ January

Hi Everyone!
So here I am by the skin of my teeth -getting in my January tag for the Tim's 12 tags of 2013!!  I had fun doing this last year, so wanted to participate again.  It definitely gets me to try to some new techniques as his tags always inspire something new!

My tag itself is packaging from G45 hinges!  - It was a bit distressed but I embossed and inked it some more and where there was 'stuff' I didn't want to show I covered with my Tim Holtz tissue tape!
I love the stability this gave my tag as I knew I was going to be hanging a lot of trinkets and embellishments off of it!

I've used Tim's ticket stamp and Moment token embellishment - I couldn't find my jump rings so use his small paper clips instead!!  I actually love how those worked!!  - I did a rub-on to his clear tags for 'Remember Moments' and a watch piece that I  had and could be Tim's or not.  I don't have the packaging it was just in my metal embellishments. 
I stamped my vintage camera using The Rubber Cafe' - Vintage Tresures set- and found a 'Smile' rub-on and a 'Small Smile metal tag. 

 Tim's Film strip trim finishes it off - and some burlap natural ribbon.

hope you enjoyed!!  -
Now I'm off to get this over to Ever After a store in Carlsbad where they are gathering Tim's tags.
I'll take a pick and share what everyone else has done!!

12 Tags of 2013 Update!**********
Hi - got to the store and I'm 'lucky' #7!  There's still plenty of time as you have until 2/13/2013 to get in on the Store promotion.  To upload to Tim Holtz' blog post you have to have it in before the end of the month.
My good friend Lori McCoughlin is coordinating this effort over in Vista, CA at Ever After! You can see her blog post here - since I usually participate in Tim's - decided it would be fun to do locally as well!  So if you live in the area, get in on the fun!!

I took some pics of the tags turned in so far.  Too much fun!! :

Here they all are together... neat display huh?
