2nd: 12 Tags of 2012

What second tag?

Where is the first? 

Well read on my friends, your questions will be answered.

Tim Holtz, creator and host of 12 Tags of Christmas has decided that as of 2011, 12 Tags of Christmas will retire. (and the crowd goes wild - nooooo)

All last year I heard, read and saw about 12 Tags of Christmas, and because of my course schedule, I did not have the time to create any.  So I resolved to do them all in 2012.

Will the himself nixed that idea right in the...well lets just say I was disappointed BUT then as I read on here is what is going to happen...

"so i've decided to officially retire the "12 tags of christmas" as we know it, and begin the 12 tags of the year.  of course with this year being 2012, what better time to kick off this new concept with the "12 tags of 2012".  so at the beginning of each month i will post a  tag tutorial (with step by step photos, video, etc).  this tag will be themed to that month's holiday season if applicable, or just a new idea to share.  i will have the inlinkz live to allow you the entire month to upload your creation inspired by that month's tag.  at the end of that month, we will select winners at random from those who have uploaded a project, and post them on the blog with some great prizes.  of course there is also a blinkie on the side of the blog you can download and post on your own blog sharing your participation in the new "12 tags of 2012".  i'm so excited for this new concept since it will inspire me with new ways to create each month, give you time to create as well, and share a wider variety of ideas.  just think... the new 12 tags will be like christmas every month!!!

What an awesome new adventure!  I am really excited because I will final have the time to 'tag' along.

So without further ado...

I cut a heart (1") and a cherub (2 1/2") on Tim Holtz grunge paper from Cricut Cartridge Victorian Roman.  The cherub is inked with Barn Door distress ink and dabbed with ruby slippers glitter stickles.  The heart punch is EK Success and Martha Stewart.  The tag was stamped with snow cap paint and Stampers Anonymous - Purely Random and embossed using sizzix floral flourishs.Ribbon is from personal stash embellished with Tim Holtz ideology.  Last but not least the sentiment and tag set is My Creative Time - Teeny Tag Greetings.

Until next time - happy scrappin'!

I am quite happy about the new adventure Tim is taking us on! Love your take on the Valentine's Day tag and the embossed background! Your heart paper is quite clever. Have a great weekend!
