New Year Brings New Twelve Tags of 2014

Hello all, I'm so excited to begin a new year with Tim Holtz and the Twelve Tags of 2014. You can find Tim's wonderful tag for January and tutorial on his blog here:


My finished tray from last year was so wonderful and I just love how the year ended up and how my tray looks. You can see it in a blog post here:

So this year I wanted to do something similar, that I could display but also something different, if that makes any sense.
 I decided to do something that I love and that is making postcards. I'm going to make one for myself and one to send to a friend every month. I have this 7 Gypsies recipe card tray that is the perfect size to store postcards and I'm most likely going to store my postcards there. 

I followed most of Tim's tutorial but added a few elements of my own to the postcards. I used Tim's XL die "Word Play" to create the word "Time" and then I just colored the word black with distress paint and also used some copper metallic distress paint to give it a grungy metallic look


I used Tim's Tiny Tabs and Tags die to create my tab on the side of each postcard and I simply wrote in the words and used the mini stapler to staple the tab onto my postcard


One of my favorite things is clock works and steampunk so I always love Tim's January tag because it usually has some sort of Time element and this one did not disappoint, I love how both of my postcards came out!!! Each one is a little different but they both look great. 





Thanks again for stopping by and have a super, fantastic day!!!
