12 Tags of 2015 - June

Hello Friends!

Long time no blog!  June has been a very busy month for me, with almost no time for crafting.  I have been having lots of fun, though, so no regrets.  When I finally got some time to play, the June "Tim Tag" was the first project I tackled. 

I love Tim's background for this month!

Green Distressed Plaid!  LOVE!  The rest of the tag is really cute, too, but since I'm not at all a coffee drinker, I zigged and zagged pretty far from the Tim's original. 

Here's my version:

I grabbed lots of bits a pieces from my scrap containers, and altered as needed with Distress Paints and embossing to coordinate with my background.  ( I used an embossing folder as a stamp to created my background, as I don't have a striped stencil.) 

Here's one more look at the whole project:

As always, I had fun playing along with the 12 Tags of 2015 challenge!

Thanks for stopping by today!

  1. Wow, this is just fabulous Elizabeth! What a unique looking container, wherever did you get that from! Love the colours you used, the blues and greens go so well together! hugs :)

    1. Thanks, Pamellia! The "frame" is one of the doors of a jewelry "armoire" that I picked up at the thrift shop. It was a good purchase, as I have been using both doors all year to display my 12 tags, and there are other good pieces of it in my "things to be altered" pile!


Your kind comments are very much appreciated!
