12 tags of Christmas with Tim Holtz



Just a short post today to show you my 1 tag of Christmas LOL
I hope to find some time to make some more...

Jeg har fulgt med på Tim Holtz sine 12 tags til jul,
og dette er min første...
Håper jeg kan finne litt tid til å lage noen flere.



This is a tag made with the technique of day 9.
I didn't find so many Christmas papers with good images,
but this reindeer was cute I think....
 
Here is my glass ornament...
You can read about the fun and easy technique

A Christmas card



I'm behind schedule for this years Christmas cards....

But this year I have decided to
SLOW DOWN
and reduce the requirements to myself and
ENJOY
 the time before Christmas.

If I don't get ready in time I take it with a
(=   SMILE   =)

Jeg ligger etter skjema med julekortene i år...

Men siden jeg har bestemt meg for å senke skuldrene og
redusere kravene til meg selv, så betyr det ikke så mye.
De er jo bare ekstra heldige de som
får hjemmelaga julekort, tenker jeg.....  ;)

For i år skal jeg kose meg, og det har jeg gjort også!
"Mmmm, de smakte godt de kjeksene"
sa baksterkjerringa og snek fingrene under lokket
på kakeboksen for n'te gang *knis*
Jeg har nok allerede spist kvoten min.

Men nå skal du få se et kort av typen "Clean and Simple"
eller som man kan si på trøndersk  typen "fort og gæli"

I have made a clean and simple card today
using the image of the super cute Henry.




The text says "Merry Christmas", is stamped and embossed on an overhead.



On the embossed panel I have used Diamond and Frosted Lace Stickles...




From another angle...

I'm entering my card into these challenges:
Craft Your Passion #87 - "Anything goes" + glitter
CropStop #48 - "Punch and Holiday"
Sukkersøtt #148 - "Snøkrystaller og glitter"
Fab'n'Funky #101 - "Anything goes" (Combi max 10)
Ooh-la-la-creations #94 - "Lots of Sparkle"
Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas #49 - "Monochromatic" (I won!!)
Bah! Humbug! #47 - "Cute Christmas Critters"
Sweet Stampin - "Snow"
One Stop Craft  - "Let it Snow"
Passion for ProMarkers #129 - "Celebrations"


Thanks for stopping by my blog!

I really appreciate YOUR visit =)

Don't forget to enjoy your days before Christmas!!

Tag


It was so fun making a tag, so I made one more...
I'm working on a paperbag album.... so this one was
made in a minute (it felt like =) 
Hopefully I'm able to finish the album during the next week.

This time I have used a lovely Hänglar stamp.
Poor litte thing, have been laying in the box for two years.




Det var så gøy å lage en tag, så jeg laget en til med det samme...
Jeg holder på med et pose-album... og denne ble jo ferdig
på ett minutt (det føltes sånn  =)
Forhåpentligvis blir albumet ferdig i løpet av neste uke.
Denne Hänglar søtnosen har ligget i boksen i to år,
men endelig fikk den komme frem i lyset. *knis*


Here is my tag....






It's hard to see of the photo, but the mesh is purple too...



I have stamped a text on the top of the tag....



Here you can see all the sparkle on his wings...
And I made some new feelers of string.


I'm entering this tag into these challenges:
Sketchy Colors #93 - "Green, Orange and Purple"
Crafty Ribbons #6 - "Anything but a Card"
Ooh-la-la Creations #93 - "Bingo" (Pearls, Flowers, Lace)

Tag

I don't drink coffee but I love the smell of it...

So today I have made a tag using my embellishments
colored with coffee.
The tag has had a bath in coffee as well =)



Jeg drikker ikke kaffe men jeg synes det lukter veldig godt...

Derfor har jeg laget en tag med stasj farget med kaffe.
Tag'en har også fått en runde i kaffebad =)



Here is the tag who has the wonderfull smell of coffee....


The Bow, and you may see the postal stamp....


I have used the Tim Holtz dies "Cages Bird",
but I want him outside ;)


From another angle....


I'm entering this tag into these three challenges:
Wild Orchid #36 - "Brown and Blue"
Ooh-la-la Creations #93 - "Bingo" (Lace, Sparkle, Metal)
Delightful Challenges - "Bingo" (Tag, Lace, Die Cuts)
Top Tip Tuesday #60 - "Tag"  (I left a TIP)


TIP:
I color my tags in a coffee bath, my cheese cloth,
and the shiny white ribbon I never use.
To speed up the drying I place it under
the heat pump in the living room.





Wish you all a wonderful day!
Thanks for stopping by =)

A Christmas Card....


Finally I have created a card again.

I have challenged myself to use 3 different DP's and
to use red and green only. I haven't decided what I
think about the result yet... *giggle*
And I also tried to use Prisma colors for coloring =)


Da har jeg endelig fått laget et kort igjen. Resultatet vet jeg ikke hva
jeg skal synes om, men jeg utfordret meg selv til å bruke
 3 mønserark og bare grønt og rødt.
Ufordringen greide jeg om ikke annet *knis*
Og jeg har prøvd meg på fargelegging med Prisma colors også =)





The result looks like this.....


Isn't this Hänglar boy cute?
