Valentine tag 2013

Hi everyone,

What did Tim Holtz spoil us with another stunning tag. I'm delighted that he continues this year with the 12 tags! What a gorgeous tag he has made for us​​. I honestly had a little struggle because I didn't have the  beautiful blueprint stamps and I needed to find a replacement. But I'm happy with my alternative
This time I made ​​two tags at once, because I have a swap but I also want to have all the 12 tags for myself. I've never made ​​a project multiple times simultaneously, usually when I need to make more than one, I make a sample first and then I make the rest simultaneously. But then you already know what you want to do. It was a fun experience!

The heart on the wings is an exclusive stamp from Simon Says Stamp! And I cut it out with the matching die. The round tag is an exclusive too! What are those cute huh?
I don't have Kraft Core so as an alternative to emphasize the embossing I used red chalk.

Thank you for stopping by! Love to see you next time!



  1. Yes, I am working on my struggle tag in between keeping an eye on my bird! Fabulous improvising on Tim's Tag! Love the heart and wings! Hugs!

  2. Very nice, you did a great job!!

  3. Wow! You always come up with a creative alternative and do a great job!!

  4. Cool tag! Using chalk on embossed images is just ingenious! I'm so using that idea!! ;-)

  5. Inderdaad een goed alternatief! Ik zit er ook al zo mee te worstelen wat ik er van maken moet omdat ik niet veel stempels valentijn heb maar jouw tag is een goed voorbeeld, groetjes

  6. Wat een SUPERGAVE tag zeg!!!!
    Mooi die felle kleur rood!
    Groetjes Patricia

  7. Its very nice - lovely and bright and I love the o's and x's around the edge.

  8. I love what you did!! Great pick for a replacement. I am with you on keeping one for yourself, thankfully we have our blogs to reflect on what we have made after giving it all away, which I love to do too.
    Have a great day!

  9. Brilliant red! Fab the wings...excellent touch there! Awesome tag!

  10. Hey Sandra,

    Ik vind hem super geworden!!!
    en leuk dat je hem ook ruilt!!

    Groetjes xx Cis

  11. That's a wonderful valentine's tag. I'm struggling with the tag this month for the same reason - no blueprint stamps. It's seems a bit naughty for me to use a stamp from someone else, oh the ethics of crafting lol! Love your take on it, and that red is sooo sexy :-) Maddy x

  12. Woohoo I absolutely love this Sandra. It is amazing. Brilliant take on Tim's tag.

    Hugs Annie x

  13. Oh wow!!! LOVE this Valentine's tag Sandra!!!
