I will be making cards instead of tags. But I am watching every day!

becky said...

I am making cards and using a tag from 2 years ago as a jumping off place. I'm taking parts of it and doing my own thing with it.

Cathy McKenna said...

Oh, YES! I love using these tags for inspiration....it is nice to have the idea and tweak it to my style.

Linda said...

I check the tag of the day first thing in the morning. I have limited access to the products they are using, so I've only made two of them with what I have--

Maxine #6215 said...

Oh my....haven't his cards been beautiful!!!! I have ordered so much Tim stuff from Bluemoon, I think they have my name on auto order! I am making the cards and have so enjoyed them everyday. I need that kraft christmas pak....hint hint!

ruby t said...

Yes, I am making some tags and cards using the techniques but it is easy to get over-stimulated with everything he pulls out.
I enjoy watching what he comes up with each year.

barbara johnson said...

I love his tags!! I will attempt to do some similar ones. I can't resist trying. They are so beautiful!! I love his ideas!!

I don't know if I will get to make tags this year, but I am definitely going to make some cards with the inspiration and techniques I have gained from his "12 Tags of Christmas this year!

I look forward to each and every day of his new tags. It is so sad, it is almost over. Tim and his products would be greatly missed if they were not in the scrap booking industry!

Thank you for the chance to win a little bit of T1m-Goodness. Love it! To everyone at BlueMoon May your Holiday Season be filled with Magic this Year!

Cheers!
Tonya

Jackie Tuttle said...

I will be using several of his tags as Christmas cards this year. Thank you BlueMoon for keeping so much of Tim's supplies in stock and for having the lowest prices on the dies. I just wish Tim would do his 12 tags in June or July so we could have enough time to get them all done in time for the Holidays. Oh well-it will be a head start for next year!!!

I used Tim's "Wisemen" stamp as the focal point for this year's Christmas cards. I used a lot of Tim's stickles as well. I believe I made about 60 cards and enjoyed making them.

Best wishes

KVencel said...

I will definitely make some of Tim's tags, but not all of them, before Christmas. Maybe afterwards I'll make the others so I'll have samples for next year.

NanaBeth said...

I'm adapting some of them to make into ornaments for Christmas presents.I have been so inspired by my friend Tona's cards that I plan to make at least one a month so I'll be ready for next Christmas.

Natalie said...

To be honest I have made 1 tag as a card and that is as far as I got. It has been very busy for me but when I do get some time I want to try and make all 12.

Tammy Hall said...

Making Tims tags have become a tradition in my house. I incorporate them into cards and use them in mini albums and even on layouts. I just love them. You just have to wonder sometimes, where this man gets his inspiration. His tags are so intense!!! Love him!

Shannon Tuttle said...

I am in the process of making my version of tag #4 with the snowman die I just received in the mail. I am having a lot of fun playing with new tools and techniques!

Olivia said...

I haven't made Tim's tags but have been thinking of making a set of tags for my Christmas journal so this year I may give it a go!

Christine Schmidt said...

I've been following the 12 tags since 2007 and have loved EVERY minute of it! I have learned so many fabulous new techniques and I love how he inspires all of us. I am more of a cardmaker and have used these tags as ideas to create some awesome cards. Thank you for always sharing his tutorial videos and for the very generous giveaway!! Merry Christmas to you all!!

KristineWhittaker@gmail.com said...

I am making Tim's tags this year for the first time. I've made 4 so far and loving the creative challenges. I've made some as card fronts and others as tags, all attached to easels for display in my home. The BTS Twitter party has been a blast, too! Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

Michaele C. said...

I don't always make the tags right away and sometimes I use Tim's ideas
when making cards. I just love his ideas and look forward to his tags each Christmas.

Aideen said...

Tims tags are amazing as always-I have been working but have some time today to myself so there are 2 I'm hoping to make that I know I have most of the supplies for :) x

lvtaz2000 said...

I will definitely be making at least two of the tags, and have been trying to gather up the necessary Tim Holz items necessary to make these wonderful tags. I want to make everything new item he demonstrates!

okienurse said...

My sleep habits have gone to pot the past few days. I stay up till 2am cst to see the new tag of the day and then some nights I just have to make the tag before I go to bed! I have completed 6 so far and plan on finishing them all! They are so much fun and he is such an awesome person to do this for us! I wish it could go on all year but I also am a realist and know I would never get anything else done! Have a great day!

Sandi M said...

Each day I watch. I also bought a couple die cuts right here so that I can make a few of the tags or variations of them to go with gifts. Tim is really a master and I always learn something cool with the 12 tags.

Christina Aiton said...

So far I have made 10 tags, and then there will be 2 more, one today and one tomorrow. thanks for the chance to win!

Pam said...

I love Tim's tags! So many fab techniques and so much to learn. I'm trying some of them. The time crunch is on, so some may need to wait.

Thx for the giveaway! Merry Christmas!

Kelly Massman said...

I won't be making Tim Holtz tags but would love to win! :-) Thanks!

Sue said...

I've made every one so far. I was determined to do mine along with
tIm this year since every year in the past I said I'd do them "later" and "later" never came!
Mine are not all Christmas themed, but I'm planning on making a banner with them and hanging it in my craft room along with all of the other
t!m things I've created in his classes over the years.

Beastybunny said...

I will definitely be making some of Tim's tags. I do so every year and use them, on my gifts for the holidays!

Pamela said...

I am making some of the tags to give as gifts and then I will make all of them this summer. I used one of last year's tags as my inspiration for my cards and I did all of the tags from last year this year. Of course, I buy my supplies at Bluemoon! The bag would be great to tote some of my "stuff".

Deanna Cosgrove said...

Have not make his tags this year but really want to get to them. In the meantime, I have been incorporating the techniques he has used throughout in the crafts I am doing for gifts and decorating so his inspiration has not gone to waste for me.

Silvia said...

As years before I am following the Tim´s tags and these are amazing inspiration for create another works with the tecbhincs and ideas.

April said...

What a fabulous giveaway!! I'm not much of a tag maker myself so I won't be attemping any of them this year. Maybe one day though. ;)

Theresa said...

I look forward to the inspiration I get from Tim's tags for week in advance. I have made most of the tags from years past and have started on this years. I always learn something new, or get reminded to use something I learned before in a new way. What's not to like about that?

Kade said...

I've made a couple, nothing crazy, I don't have many of the supplies, and have been feeling under the weather the last week and not much in the holiday spirit. But, it's very nice to see the wonderful things people have made. Everyone is so creative and talented. ;-)

pcrusberg said...

I've not made any of the tags yet, but I do love watching the technique videos. Thanks for the giveaway!

Cyndi - Dreams Unltd said...

Yes, making cards & tags! I got started last weekend - don't have time during the week (working 10 hour days due to co-worker's illness and exhausted when I get home), but will be getting back to it Friday night. This is my 5th year watching, and still learn something new all the time. Like others, I tweak things to make it my own, but sure is a good jumping off point!

Jennifer said...

I don't know which I'm more excited about...the Tim Holtz's paper stash or the awesome messenger?! I've made 4 of his 12 Tags of Christmas and plan to make the rest of the tags before Christmas as 'stocking stuffers' for friends.

peg said...

Thanks to Team BlueMoon for bringing us Tim Holtz's 12 Tags of Christmas - 2011! The links and the supply lists were a great help to me when it came to order for a certain tag project! I hope you will continue to post the 'supply' list whenever you do a video how-to...makes shopping much easier. Merry Christmas to everyone at BlueMoon! ♥

Cheryl C said...

Yes! I'm doing all the tags! Last year I just 'observed' his 12 days but was determined this year so "thank you, BlueMoon" for having all the stuff I needed. I'm working on the tags in random order and have 3 completed and more in various stages! Love it and hope he does it again next year.

Ruth Ann Landry said...

oh...what a giveaway!!! I visited Tim's blog each day, but haven't made any of the tags as of yet. I learned a lot of techniques from the 12 Days that I will probably use in other artwork throughout the year.

Merry Christmas to you and yours! I'd like to take this opportunity to tell you "thank you" for your wonderful and personal service...it's the best in the industry!

Kelley Robbins said...

I am going to use some of Tim's ideas on my Christmas cards.

pooky said...

Yes!! I have been behind the scenes since he started doing the 12 Tags...well, this year I followed and played! I am having a blast!
Merry Christmas Scott and family!
