Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2016 - January

Happy Saturday, everyone!! I hope all of my friends on the East Coast are staying safe and warm. I am praying for you. When I lived in the Adirondack Mountains in upstate New York, we had a blizzard one year that completely buried my vehicle...and it was a Jeep Grand Cherokee!! We lost power for days and days. I really hope it's not nearly that bad and you are all safe.  Keeping all of you in my thoughts and prayers.


I made a resolution to play along with Tim's Tags of 2016 and so far, so good :) I pretty much followed Tim's instructions HERE, using a few different items to give it a steampunk feel. For the embossing, I used Tim's Gears Texture Fade Embossing folder for the background. The stamp is from Tim's Mini Blueprints 3 stamp set.


I am entering this in Tim's 12 Tags of 2016 Challenge. Thanks so much for stopping by!! Have a great day :)

Like your take on TH Jan Tag. I posted mine and used a Simon Says Stamp exclusive of TH's alarm clock stamp and a clock theme with embossing folder. Last night I enjoyed a Stamp Show Make & Take event and the Stamp Show today.

Brenda in IN said...

Whoa, I thought I was on the wrong blog! This is fantastic. It's so different from your usual soft, sweet cards. I think it is a fun tag using Tims ideas and products. I love the silvery look of it and the added gears. Great job!

Лиза, я читаю твой блог с удовольствием!!! Работы потрясающие! Очень красиво и стильно!

Lori Kobular said...

Gorgeous tag Lisa! I love the embossed gears background and I love the sentiment on that tag and the gears in the center! Great job following Tim's tag! We got about 20 inches of snow where I live in NJ! Today was shoveling out day!

MaryH said...

Such an unusual look...I like this embossed metal effect. Clever to use the gear folder as you did, and a wonderful combination of TH products to create something so imaginative & unusual. A very rich look with the patina of the gray metal too. I LIKE it! TFS & Hugs.

DIANA L. said...

What a great tag Lisa, you have inspired me to want to give the TH tags of 2016 a try. I have never done this before, I will see if I can get one in this month then, I may try each month. The embossing is great and I love the gears. Have a great day my friend.

Brenda said...

The Adirondack's get some heavy snow storms Lisa, so not surprised to hear that your vehicle was snowed completely in! We got a good bit here, and many vehicles were completely buried in the snow! I didn't envy anyone who didn't have a garage. That's a lot of digging. Love your tag! Good for you for doing each tag that Tim does!! You pulled it off perfectly. Hugs, Brenda

Kathy Salido said...

Amazing tag, I love the dimension and texture!

Tracy said...

Your tag is stunning!!!
I really like the metal gears you used.
I planned on doing all of Tim's tags this year as well...I completed them one year and then the next year only 1/2 of them...I guess I better get on it, lol.

Sunshine HoneyBee said...

Lisa, thought I'd give you a heads up. I cked the Tim Holtz Jan Tag post and my tag was no longer there so I reentered. This has happed with mine in other mths & others not there any more. I did not see yours there. I know the random thing makes it difficult to find entry but if you go to enter and it does not tell you that it is already there then you need to reenter because I went & reentered and it did not tell me that it was already there.
