A quick post.

I'm held up in scrapping lately because of my husband still at home, with his broken ankle. Recovery doen't go smoothly. When they removed the stitches from the second surgery, (four weeks ago)
a few hours later, the wound opened up and well.... it got bigger and bigger in the last 4 weeks, and of course got infected. He is on meds and negative pressure therapy and the doc told us that he is going to need another surgery. So....
This is why I am not much around on the boards and haven't uploaded any of the tags I made, during the *12 tags of Christmas* by Tim Holtz.
I still have to finish my day 12 tag, but hey.... the Christmas tree needed to be trimmed too. lol Anyway... here are my tags.
Day 7
Day 8
The idea of using acorn caps came from this lady.
Day 9
Day 10
Day 11

That's it for today. Thank you for leaving such sweet comments all the time.
They mean so much and are truly apreciated!

we are heading to another hospital appointment, I'll be back hopefully later this week. Till then...

stay safe and healthy!

hugs,
Paulien

12 tags of Christmas day 5 & 6

Day 5... my heart sunk as I saw that Tim used his reflections stamps.
I was so mad with myself that I didn't buy that set, cause I KNEW that he would use it for his 12 tags. darn... anyway.... I needed some time to think about how I would solve this "problem", cause I really wanted to do this technique. And then it hit me.... WHY thinking so hard...
just do the technique and instead of placing the inked side, of the acrylic, face down to the tag, I glued it with the inked side on front. As I said.... I do not have the reflection stamps, so I used my regular Christmas stamps. still love the outcome. I don't have the die for the branch either so I handcut my own from grungepaper.
some close up's:

Day 6....
When I saw Tim's tag posted, I wasn't to excited, cause I didn't had the products. No metal, not the embossing folder, and I didn't know how to solve this problem without ordering the stuf. But NO.... that I promissed myself... I'm not going to order anything. Just use the supplies I have.
So... I cut up the packaging of milk (the inside has a silver, metal-ish layer) and start emboss it, using several embossing folders. then cut is up in several parts and started to fill my manilla tag. Then did the same thing Tim did with this metal embossed plate. I really really LOVE the outcome. it looks like a wrinkled old tin... LOVE IT!!!
here some close up's:
To me... it looks like an old tin my grandma use to have.

That's it for today... need to think about day 7 cause... surprise surprise..... don't have the products... lol

12 tags of Christmas day 3 and 4

day 3:
As you can tell, I didn't have the stamp Tim used, so I took some others. I also didn't have the embossing folder to give it a little more interest, that is why I did some heat embossing.
some close up's:
I also didn't have the holly die, so I went outside to find some real holly. I dabbed it with Distress Stain Picket Fence and added some Gesso and Diamond Dust to the edges.

day 4:
This tag, needed some thinking since I don't have the dies Tim used.
my snowmen is handcut as well as the snow furries border. My crackle didn't come out the way I wanted, but then again... I loved the technique.
some close up's:
I absolutely LOVE how that border came out.

Can't wait for tomorrows tag

hugs,
Paulien
