Hello everyone, hope you all survived the clocks springing ahead by an hour; I don't mind the fall back time change but the spring forward always sends me for a loop!
I've been working on the tag album I made to store my 12 tags of 2015 that I am making as I follow along with Tim Holtz (click here to see my tag album in it's 'unadorned' state that was inspired by the album made by Astrid MacLean). I have the cover and January and February completed so far and although Tim just posted his March tag, I haven't gotten around to making it yet so I haven't done the March page in my tag album. Hopefully I will be able to get to it this week. Here is the front cover:
I used Tim Holtz's 'Crowded Attic' paper stash to cover the front and for the belly band. Lots of Tim Holtz Idea-ology goodies were used to embellish the cover along with some newsprint flowers by Recollection that have some Prima 'Tiny Junkyard Findings' screw heads in their centers. I already had to 'embrace imperfection' with the remnant rub under the fragment charm as half of it wouldn't come off of the backing, so I had to write in the word with a pen LOL!
The inside cover has more TH treasures; remnant rubs, salvage stickers and some stamps from a couple of his Stampers Anonymous Clear Stamps sets. Since Tim hasn't made a logo for the '12 Tags Of 2015' yet, I copied the January logo onto some cardstock and cut off the 'January' part and jury rigged it together. I will most probably cover this one up with the 'official' 12 Tags Of 2015 logo when it comes out at the end of the year.
For the January page front, I made some digital scrapbook paper on the computer using overlays by Kimeric Creations and Mommyish and then stamped the 'January' onto another fragment of scrapbook paper. The snowflakes were found in the $1 store and the words on the left side were typed on the computer and cut out. The 'Happy New Year' was created with some Recollections Alphabet stickers and I edged the page with 'Salty Ocean' distress ink to coordinate with the paper.
Here's the February page front with the February tag peeking out of the pocket. The background paper on the page front is another piece of digital scrapbook paper (think it was originally from Shabby Miss Jen and I altered the color?) and I overstamped it with some heart stamps from my stash. The 'February' was stamped onto another fragment of scrapbook paper and the words on the right were created as for the January page. The swirl under February was another $1 store sticker find as were the cherubs (the cherubs are actually confetti!). Be Mine was created with some TH Label Letters and the glittery foam heart is one I received from one of my Mixed Media Studio buddies. I edged it with some 'Walnut Stain' distress ink to age it a bit and I edged the whole page with 'Picked Raspberries' DI.
So that's as far as I've gotten so far, I'll update you now and again throughout the year as I get the pages completed. Thanks as always for stopping by and happy creating everyone!
