Twelve tags of BLISS...

Number F-I-V-E!





Yep, I'm still at it! I know it's a little redundant - I mean Tim's tags were a WHILE ago, now.... But, THE MAGIC OF DEEP-TECHNIQUE paper craft, never gets old!

{heh heh}

And since you pretty much know where this is all going, I can't resist sharing some of my own twists... LIKE THESE! {Yep! You guessed it, Kare!} Tin sheets are behind all my tags. I did this with last year's collection, thinking that I'd use them as Christmas ornaments, or possibly turn them into a garland... {I thought it was a good idea...duh, duh, duhnn! } Funny, though, I never got tired of looking at them - they've been on display in Scrapland, ever since! {!} Tim loves his manila type tags as "canvas" for these creations, and I completely agree.... But for all the wonderful work involved, I like it to be attached to something a little more hearty.





Believe it or not this tin material cuts easily with heavy craft scissors. These are pieces I have left over from an environmental study we had done a while back {!WHATEVER, SALAMANDERS!}... They are mostly pre-cut, and are a little smaller than a standard card. My tags have to be a slightly different scale, but, hey, I'm crafty...








I, now, look at ALL my Christmas goodies from packaging and "obsolete" ornaments with brand new eyes, these days! DON'T EVEN GET ME STARTED on the huge bag of plastic holly and crazy "Christmas" foliage collected by husband's granny back in her day... {Husband and I dug out a bunch of WAY retro gems from storage, thanks to, none other than the "Tim-man!" THANK GOODNESS, MY man is a good sport! heh heh}

Sheesh - now I can't part with ANYTHING!

So there we have it. I'm marching though tag madness! Ur, wait, what did I call it? Oh, yeah, the TWELVE TAGS OF BLISS! Wicked fun, I'm having! Positively!!!! What about YOU? I surely hope, and expect, that you're getting some crafty bliss cooking, WHEREVER you are! Thanks for stopping by! I plan to keep up my pace {too many craft product pounds shed to slow down now!} Tomorrow, I hope to have another painting to share as well!
{Oh, the creative mojo! - I mustn't turn off the spicket when things are flowin' fine!}


Have a terrific day!

Your metal tags are craftastic and fabulous (just like you! :>)! Love seeing your interpretation o' Tim and that you are makin' what you got work....so fabulously well!

Yeah....I know. We are all in TROUBLE now. I have two Disney Princess acetate packaging panels with pink flourishes on them that I can't have do a grande exit from the house from a wee girl's Christmas presents (thank you Pricess Tiana & Jasmine!) now. I have a hard enough time getting rid of stuff, now I'll be holding on to more! lol :>

If only your hubby knows ;P Does he not read your blog? I'd be jealous of this Tim dude if I were him :)

Gorgeous work here and I also want to wish you a happy 2011!! Been on hiatus on my end and I am hoping to be blurfing and saying hello more frequently than every other month... ok, maybe once a week at least ;P
