12 Tags OF 2013

For 2013, among other
things, I am challenging myself to do the 12 Tags of 2013. Yes!!! I have the first one done...


You know it's funny,
but I thought I had a lot of supplies, tools, dies, etc... until I went to make this tag. Jeepers, this required a bunch of stuff I didn't own... but that's okay... it's about creativity, right? So, here I go!


First off, I didn't have
 the Bigz Gears die so I ordered some pre-cut chipboard ones from an Etsy shop. I had to order the metallic Distress Stains as well. I wanted those anyway, so it just gave me the push to buy them now. That's two new groups of items I had to purchase to make my tag. The rest, I just made do with what I had... and I'm likin' the results!


I went ahead and
finished the back side so I could give this to someone and have a place to write a short message. This paper is from Basic Grey's Clipping collection... Typewriter. I made a pocket and tucked in a blank #5 manila tag.


I hope you're staying
warm where you are. Baby... it's COLD here!!! and warnings of an ice storm moving in... yikes!!!
